The blouse was bought for work anyways! It's the Blouse with Contrast Top Stitching. I could never have enough blouses, especially in a neutral like white/black. I thought the design was minimalistic and kind of interesting. I don't like the $69 price tag since it's not a silk shirt. But the quality looks to be good, and I just got a raise so I talked myself into it.
I got this shirt in size small. It fits pretty loosely down the body. But tighter around the chest. I find that Zara tops and jackets always tend to run smaller around the chest. They are made for girls with no boobs. But to be honest, I would not button it all the way to the top anyways so this works for me.
I like the collar of this shirt. It's like my favorite Theory Brindan blouse. I like this type of collar because you don't have to worry about how it lays under the jacket. Here I have it buttoned all the way up under my Theory blazer. If I change into my suit skirt, I'd look pretty professional!
Here's the close up of the tag:
The sweater I bought is really awesome too. It is the Cut Work Knit T-Shirt. It looks like a regular thin black sweater from the front:
But the back has a little extra something!
Oh, you can't see it? Lol. It has elbow patches!!! I am obsessed with elbow patches.
The elbow patch is pretty subtle since it is black on black. The store also had this sweater in tan and navy/white stripe and those have black elbow patches as well which are way more obvious. But I just felt like a black one.
This sweater is very soft and the fit is very casual. It's a size S and that is the smallest size it comes in. I think it's quite popular because this was the only size S left in the store I went to. The price is quite amazing at only $19! I already wore it yesterday. Super comfy!
Here's how it looks from the side... very relaxed fit:
The shoulder seam is dropped, I think this design is pretty popular nowadays:
Not bad for a lunch time walk down the street! It's too convenient. Next time, I will bring my car keys with me so that after I shop I can drop off the bag in my car before heading back to work! =P
