Susan F says:

Before you mentioned the 1970’s look I was thinking just that. It looks like what I wore in the 70s. You would have been perfect for that era!

Kate Beck says:

So fun! And I was going to pick everything you did, but the dress too. Then you ended up saying you were keeping It! Lol I
I liked the dark jeans, but I understand if you already have some. Also, I like the Levi shorts better. I love, love, love the bomber jacket! Thanks for sharing!

WatchMeSew Creations says:

Nordstrom jean shorts look great! Madewell shorts are too wide and where they hit you on the leg is just wrong.

CuriouserCreations8 says:

You look so great! I absolutely love that striped midi skirt!

Vicki likes art says:

Get the shorts – so cute, you will be glad you did when you are on the cruise. Maybe you’ll like the jeans in a different size – they look great. Yes, I think you are totally right about showing your waist & tops that fit you well – looks very nice. Love everything you chose – fun video. Thanks for your joyful spirit – and even your videos when you are feeling low or confused. Have a great week.

Miss Charlie (Brenda T) says:

I would be no help at all, since I think you look cute in everything! But that bomber jacket is my favorite! And i love the ringer T also. And honestly, if you’re ONLY almost 29 and you’ve reached your goal weight… girlfriend, you need to be wearing whatever you darn please. I’m 50 and regretting not doing more to reach my goal weight when I was younger and could get away with wearing ‘cool’ and cute things. So go for it! So fun seeing all your try-ons. 🙂

ashgo86 says:

I’m right there with you on all these clothes. I like those shorts and I also don’t like wearing shorts. I like that jacket but it’s too big. 🙁

Wife and Mommy says:

Oh my gosh girl you’re tiny! Total inspiration! I loved the striped skirt on you for sure! Also love the green jacket. The dress is super cute too! And would be perfect if we get the crazy heat this summer again here in the bay like last year. Ugh totally dreading it lol.

Ideas2come says:

I old but I loved those jeans on you. Hugs Heather

Mia O'Brien says:

I really like the madewell shorts on you! They are more polished and feminine if you like that look better.

BJ Summerlin says:

Really looking forward to your haul of Not Perfect Linen. I follow them on IG so it would be nice to see your reaction to the pieces you order.

arrietty39 says:

You looked awesome in the bomber jacket, t-shirt jean combo. Love the jacket and the jeans on you. Shame you couldn’t get the jeans. I think the best style of shorts for you would be high waisted, with the hem of the shorts flaring out slightly. Hard to explain. Not a straight leg, but shaped out slightly at the bottom hem. This will be flattering and you have good legs so don’t worry about that at all 🙂

MutantMelo says:

“i should have known better. The models on the site just looked so cool… whomp whomp” I feel you!!!

Nellie Parkes says:

The striped dress was super cute on you! 🙂

Maddy Hyde says:

Oh no, my wallet is in trouble!

Lauren Johnson says:

Both the windowpane pants and the chambray skirt are on my Madewell list! Love what you kept! ❤️

Bevery Bennett-Maine says:

Oh my you are looking sooo tiny!!! Good for you, all your hard Weight Watchers work really paid off. I think (only my opinion), the dress with the buttons down the back (along with the skirt) – you lose your shape totally. I ADORE the wide leg pants, very, very classy. You look wonderful in 3/4 length tees – I would definitely but some more colors in that style. Not crazy about the retro shirt – the colors wash you out. Say goodbye to those shorts. The fit wasn’t right but the other suggestions of other stores sound great. Scoop neck tees are also a fantastic look for you. Hope you can find some shorts for your cruises. Happy shopping. Loved your video – Thanks for sharing. It was fun.

Harriet Shearsmith says:

This is a FAB haul!

mademoisellesss says:

If you like the mom-jean type style, check out the Abercrombie girlfriend style jeans. They’re high waisted and nicely fitted in the waist, but a bit more give in the leg and then tapers a bit and comes in at the ankle. I explained them kind of poorly but I absolutely love them, I couldn’t get behind the style until I tried the Abercrombie styles 🙂

Faith Nelson says:

i liked both shorts on you. agree about the boxy tees [not great on a curvy girl] loved the striped skirt and window-pane pant……..not sure if they’re back from the 70’s yet, but you’de look great in denim sailor pants.

Crunchyymama 1202 says:

Your hair looks great !

Yana K says:

I love the striped dress on you! I think it’s very flattering. For shorts, I think the Levi shorts look a lot better.

Andrea Hershner says:

I think the Levi shorts were better than the Madewell ones. Love the skirt!

A.M.Y. Jones says:

I loooooooove the shorts, and they look FANTASTIC on you! seriously. 🙂

Molly Deckman says:

I love that striped skirt, it makes me want one!

Linda Kerns says:

I love both pairs of shorts- show off those runner legs. 🙂


The Levi’s shorts look bangin on you!!

Jim and Carrie Indelicato says:

The Levi’s shorts are super flattering on you! The other ones are too boxy and square your bottom. I would describe a lot of madewell clothes as boxy. The green bomber jacket is cute though. I think knowing your style is key and not forcing trends for the sake of being trendy. You have a good grasp on that!

Fiona Bell says:

I think you would look good in dressy shorts with cuffs., they are on trend , you look good in everything. Love the Mindy skirt so nice . I say no to the colour of retroT and the colour of the bomber jacket , if they had a blue or white definitely would be better for your colouring. That is personal and you will get what feels right for you. The stripe dress looks wow because of the colours, so nice on you. Thank you for video.

Madison McKibbin says:

The pink jacket could totally work if you roll the sleeves!

Sara Barry says:

I like the Levi shorts better you look so good in those.

T Clayton says:

I loved all the T-shirt’s, the chambray skirt and the bomber the best. I have mixed emotions on those wide leg pants. Nice haul overall.

Jennifer Gonzalez says:

I love the Levi shorts! I’m not a shorts person either for the same reasons but if I looked the way you do in shorts I would rock them! They look great!

Also, I love the “Mom jeans” fit on you. They didn’t look big on the waist until you pointed it out.
