Rant & Rave by Amy
Jul 16, 2010
Hello Capitol Hill Style Readers! Get ready for something that is bound to become a weekly favorite of yours, Rant & Rave. We all have things that get under our skin that we can bond over; leggings as pants, Uggs and miniskirts, visible muffin tops, and variety of other forms of torture forced upon us on a daily basis. Fortunately, the world is equally full of things we all love; a good shoe sale, f-underwear, and becoming a Gold Care member at Loehmann’s. And for my inaugural post, I’ll share my most recent shopping nightmare but don’t worry we’ll end on a positive note with one of my most coveted items this summer.
Rant: Suit Shopping
Does anyone actually like suit shopping? I have never enjoyed the experience, I hate pants and I hate jackets (which to be honest is most likely the source of my displeasure). My first move was toward the suit sets. There was a fabulous sale at Dillard’s (it’s a southern department store and I was home for the weekend) on some luxurious Anne Klein and Tahari suit sets. Unfortunately I found myself facing a dilemma that I’m sure many of you face, my tops and bottoms are unfortunately disproportionate in the eyes of the suit set making gods.
Beautiful Tahari Skirt suit was down to around $85 from $139.
Glorious pantsuit that I was actually 6 sizes different from jacket to slacks, down to $105 from $199.
So on to separates I will venture in hopes of finding some matched
Rave: One Piece Swimsuits
While shopping for swimsuits is not the most enjoyable way to spend my time, one pieces have come in to save the day. Now one-piece suits are the height of style, and my move to college was not the most form friendly decision of my life but now my form can be flattered and fashionable in a one-piece swimsuit. Unfortunately I’ve yet to find the perfect one for me, but I have started browsing online and found some pieces that I really want. Do you have any that you are coveting?
I haven’t found the right suit waiting in store yet, so I fear I may have to turn to the internet. A good friend of mine turned me onto Shabby Apple, which some to die for suit for summer.
Love the ruffles, love the coverage, and the price is not so bad. This Sutherland Red Ruffle suit is $58.
The other suit I saw on Asos, is a little edgier whether or not it’s flattering is questionable. But it’s $47.71, lovely.
