Here they are worn with my Vince Camuto Norita pump (which are on sale now! Highly recommend!!) in bittersweet grapefruit.
I don't know why I got the Theory top in size P instead of S! But I wish I had ordered S. I feel like the P is just a tad short. Not a complete deal breaker, but I would love it more if it was a size up. I love how it looks on the Bloomingdale's model:
Sigh... it's a cute top too! Linen material... I was thinking it could work as something to wear under a suit jacket to work, or as a casual top. I think I can still make it work... maybe I'll wash it and then stretch it while it's wet lol. I just need like an inch!
The J Brand Maria jeans are size 27, which are a little too big, just like the other Maria jeans that I have already. I didn't want to order a size down because I was afraid my other pair was a fluke and size 26 would have been too small. But I was wrong again lol. Both these items were deeply discounted (about $40 each) so they are not returnable.
While I wish the jeans were smaller, I think it's better to be a bit loose than a bit too tight anyway. This work fine, I'll just wear a belt!
The "varnished steel" color is pretty interesting. It's a dark charcoal kind of color with a bit of sheen. It's actually very cool, but very hard to capture on camera.
Super high rise!
J Brand's website - probably most true to real life under most lighting conditions:
Bloomingdales - They must have taken this under bright lighting so you can see the sheen in the fabric:
Neiman Marcus - somewhere in the middle:
Anyway, this color goes with pretty much everything. So I'm happy to add it to my collection!
