Two pairs of jeans, one dress, and two different T-shirts. Think it's time to sound off.

--- Post #251 ---
The first is the two pairs of jeans in Post #251. Let's get one thing out the way... there hasn't been a pair of acid-washed or bleached jeans I've ever liked, so the first pair draws a Big Nay! from me. The second pair is... somewhat acid-washed, but much better looking in my eyes than the first. So tab me for Yay! here. Unless you like the first pair so much, I'd go for the second pair.

--- Post #253 ---
Now on to this dress, and what can I say? Absolute Yay! This is a simple, classic, yet beautiful dress. I think you could try wearing some kind of belt or sash with a bright color for a pop of color. Still, this is a little black dress with big beauty. I'd go get that dress.

--- Post #255
Finally, the two shirts. One from CGD, and the other from Lanvin. The first shirt gets a Nay! from me. I don't like it all that much. The Lanvin shirt gets a big Yay! from me. That shirt is styled much more lovingly than the CDG shirt. I think you could go semi-formal with that shirt, or even just go with a nice pair of jeans and some comfortable wedge sandals (I'm thinking a strappy pair of wedge sandals with a straw or cork bottom). Go as high as you want with the Lanvin because that's a winner to me.



Big nay acid-washed jeans, yay acid-washed skinny jeans, absolute yay dress, nay CDG shirt, and big yay Lanvin shirt. Dress (and shop) with confidence!

#226 - Balmain. Imo Louboutin have exaggerated the heel height and it destroys the harmonious design.

#237 - yay, but you could easily find better and less worn in that category.

#240 - nay to both, I don't like knock offs and the quality looks poor on both.

#251 - difficult. I prefer the color of the second pair and the cut of the first pair. Sorry!

#253 - YAY!

#255 - Lanvin

Hi

So normally I go for a 36R in suit jackets but this one button seemed to fit best in 38. I was just wondering whether you guys thought it was a good fit or too big ?

Thanks for your help!

^ I think it's a pretty good fit for a 38. I, myself normally wear a 36 as well. I like that it's still slimming on the side and it hits right at the waist, not the crotch. I'd say Yay.

I haven't worn any kind of fancy jacket since my brother's wedding in November 2007. So I'm not sure about certain fits or whatever. I do know how to comment on things, however. And so... is this a Yay or Nay question, or just asking for advice? I'd say Big Yay! to the jacket. But if this is more about advice than advice on whether or not to get something, I can't do much more to help you here.

Sorry, it's a Nay. You said it was a casual dinner right? The scarf doesn't make it very casual. It doesn't add much to the outfit. Just wear the tee with the blazer to keep it simple and chic.

The jacket is a yay. The jacket + that scarf... I'm actually going to Nay! that. That jacket and a T-shirt is classic. Why mess up that balance with a scarf like that? If you fancy a scarf, why not a better-looking scarf? The jacket and T-shirt are fine as is.

I made ripped jeans out of an old pair I hadn't worn for a while, think they look good enough to wear outside?
