In the dressing room – City Chic & Peter Alexander
The other day, I posted on facebook admiring this top (& a skirt that I couldn’t find instore). Something a little different for City Chic and quite fashion forward. I decided whilst I was near a store today to go in and try it on. I often find CC sizing all over the shop, so picked this up in a L to try.
Top – City Chic – $119.95 – Tried on in a size L (Probably could go a M)
It has pros and a con for me. Mostly pros. Firstly, I probably could have sized down. The shirt is really fitted with the bandeau being slightly stretchy. The bandeau is totally removable, which means you can wear this 3 ways (1. Shirt. 2. Bandeau. 3. Shirt + Bandeau). I also loved the hard wear details. The con is, it will have to be ironed and I don’t iron.
Next up, was Peter Alexander. I’ve always admired their range of pyjamas and lusted over many things. They always have such great collections. A few months ago, they released a new Plus Size range! YAY! Sadly, a lot of the licensed collections (Disney, Muppets, SpongeBob etc) aren’t included in the PS range, but they have just released a super cute Cat & Dog collection.
Cat Tee – Size 1 || Dog Pants – Size 2
Seeing as I’d never tried them on before, I wanted to check out the sizing. The 1+ is described as size 16-18, the 2+ as 20-22 and the 3+ as 24-26. As sizing goes, I think it’s pretty right. I am smaller on top than bottoms and found the sizing I chose comfy. The pants are slightly oversized on me (like I like pyjama pants) and have a drawstring waist. I could happily wear these lower on my hips, but pulled them up a bit to show that they are quite high waisted.
Be sure to check out the fill P.A Plus range HERE as they have even more cute Cat & Dog designs!
