Second Splits59 Order from Hautelook

After my post about my Splits59 order from Hautelook, I actually went back and placed a second order!  Well, my main reason was to get a different size in the Devon tank, and then I also saw the Sprint V-Back tank that I wanted which I somehow missed seeing the first time.  So then I ordered enough of other items to make the $100 minimum to get free shipping haha.

Unfortunately (or fortunately for my wallet), most of the items did not work for me.  But I am keeping the Sprint V-Back tank!  I love this tank.  I ordered it in 2 sizes - XS and M, because the S was sold out.  I thought there was a good chance I'd have to return both.  But I am actually keeping the size M!  Though admittedly, S would probably have been best.  Oh well, I'm pretty happy with the M for the looser fit!

Here's the XS and M on me side by side - XS on the left and M on the right... not that different from the front actually.  XS is still loose fitting, just a little tighter than the M.

The back straps that go diagonally across are what made the biggest difference for me - the XS on the left here just looks pulled and a bit too tight - the V back portion is very uneven looking.  The M just looks more relaxed and effortless.  As soon as I saw the back, I knew XS was getting returned.

I think size S would have been a better fit because instead of drooping down, the straps would look more like how they look on the Splits model:

But oh well, I'm not mad at how the M fits.  It doesn't even look too loose from the side view, so I'm happy with it.

I also had to get the Devon tank in size M too.  I ordered XS last time and thought it fit too tight and short.  So I went back to order the S.  But as I was paying, it disappeared from my cart!  I didn't even think that was possible because the whole point of adding to your cart and getting a 10 minute count down timer kind of implies you have 10 minutes to complete the transaction.  I still had 4 minutes left!!  Grrrrr!!!  I was very annoyed by this.

Turns out, size M is just too big from the side view and does nothing for me.  So I really did need the small in this style.  But oh well, I shouldn't really be buying another tank right now anyways.

The pictures on the right of the next 3 photos are the size XS from my last order which I posted already - I do prefer size M over XS if I had to pick one.

The back in the M fits SOOOO much better:

I just don't really care for how the M looks from the side... I think I can save my pennies and do better with a different tank style.

And I did!  I actually bought a very light blue colored Ashby tank from ebay a couple days ago!  It's so light that it's almost white.  I don't know the name of this color, but I like it.

Here it is on the right compared to white on the left - very similar!

Ok so anyway, back to my Hautelook order lol... I returned the rest of these because I'm not that crazy about any of them:

Breeze cropped tee in navy - looks good on the model I think:

Not so much on me (size S)... I think it kind of ends at a weird spot on my body and I don't know when I would wear this - I wouldn't feel very comfortable wearing it with no shirt under to the gym:

And I think it looks very blah with a shirt under lol:

Next one that didn't work for me is the Sabrina Legend Singlette in white/navy/glow.  Also size S.  I actually think it fits and feels nice, but I decided the design is not special enough for me to keep now that my drawer space has become hot commodity.

I did like that the back was a different color though - just something a bit more unique:

I do really like Splits59 Sabrina tanks (and I already have 2 here and here).  If I didn't already have so much stuff, I'd for sure have kept this one.

Lastly, I returned the Victory Jersey Muscle tee in blossom/pacific.  I also got it in size S.  It is made of tencel.  I thought the fit was kind of off.  It's an ok top but nothing spectacular.  I don't care for the neckline so much either.  Plus the material seems to wrinkle so easily - this is how it looks right out of the bag:

There's actually mesh under the arms which I did not know before I bought it:

So I ended up keeping only one top from this entire order.  I returned everything else to Nordstrom Rack, and it went pretty smoothly.  That's very nice and convenient about shopping on Hautelook!

  1. Hi! What are those camo shorts you are wearing? Super cute.

  2. Did i somehow miss, what are the shorts you are wearing...? they look super cute and i have been looking for shorts for a very looong time. i have a problem with shorts generally as my legs/thighs are very skinny and whenever i wear shorts the opening is very wide and when i lay down, you can see everything (i mean everything...). so i tend to wear boogie shorts from lululemon (which are tight) but also very very short so i then have problems showing too much butt (cheek). those shorts look great on you!

  3. hotty hot shorts in camo? are those new?? I like! I only saw them in black Palm and flowabunga

    1. They came out a while ago along with all the camo stuff. I think they sold out super quick both online and in store! I missed out on them online and had to get them from a facebook selling group. They are super comfy though! You can type them in the search box on the right side of the site to find my original review of them.

      I did see the new ones in cadet.. so pretty! I'm gonna hunt those down. =)

    2. Thanks! :) I asked the girl at the lulu store today and she hadn't seen them ever, but she looked them up and said they exist but are "not available". I will have to look around! Also, I love the camo forme jacket on you too!
