In the dressing room – Crossroads

As you can tell, In the dressing room posts have been coming once a week lately. I’ve put myself on a buying ban in the lead up to moving, but I still want to show YOU some of the awesome stuff that is in store. Thank you to everyone who has commented letting me know about the items you’ve scored.

In Adelaide, the girls of my local Crossroads store knew me by name, and would try and keep things aside in my size that they knew I’d like. I miss those ladies! I was drawn into Crossroads the other day by the racks of coloured jeggings, but was most excited about the below.

A gorgeous cut out skater dress! (HERE – $49.95). I picked it up in a XL and dashed off to try it on! The XL fit me perfectly, the pleats were in a great position and the cut outs in the neckline were such a cute detail. I kind of wanted to cry hanging it back up on the rack, $49.95 is a steal, but I didn’t NEED another black dress. Go check it out though, it is amazing!

I do however, need a few more warmer things, especially seeing as that where i’m moving too is colder then my current house. On the left is the ‘Open Panel Top’. I am so so so in love with the mint colour that is currently in. Such a pretty colour. I also tried on a few of their jeggings. The picture to the right is the ‘Penny coloured jegging’ in ‘Bluebell‘ size 22. I ended up having to go down to a size 18 to get the best fit. I came home and ordered the Pop Pink in my size, I’ll try and get some good OOTD pictures in them to show you the fit better.

Unlike the previous ITD posts, these are JEGGINGS, not actual jeans, but I found them so much more comfortable. They are somewhat higher waisted and just elasticated. No zips or buttons. Sure, when I wear them, I’ll have to wear more of tunic shirt, they create more of a ‘camel toe’ then normal jeans, but IMO, they fall more in the ‘pants’ column then the ‘legging’ column. They are a thick, sturdy, elasticated material. I had to jump a little to get the 18 on, but once they were on, they felt GREAT. I was told they’ll stretch out a little, due to the elastic, but I felt comfortable and that everything was held in place.

But really, how awesome is that cut out skater dress!?
