Spring Finds at Old Navy

on March 18, 2013

Old Navy is a hit or miss for me.  I like it for my girls’ basics like jeans , tees, etc. especially when they have a great sale but I don’t always find stuff for me personally.  I stopped by after lunch last week to see what’s new and actually picked up a few items that spoke to me, but not the items I thought I would like.

Passed on these:

  • I saw a bunch of Spring dresses at the front of the store that caught my attention; I like eyelet material so the display of eyelet dresses in several colors drew me in.  Regular price $35, currently on sale for $25.  All their dresses are currently on sale here.  I tried on the navy in 6 but the fit was off.  It was weird around the bust area and the back made my butt look flat (not flattering).  So it was a no go.
  • I also tried on a paisley shift dress in small that was ok; I actually liked the print a lot but the polyester material was so-so.  I like the way it hung on me but I wasn’t in love with it so I passed.
  • The anchor print chambray shirt was disappointing; I really wanted to like it but I wished the chambray shade was darker.  The anchor print is impercetible against the light or faded material.

Grabbed these:

  • Unexpectedly, what I did like a lot was the ankle Diva pants  in black ($30).  They have it available in many colors and fun prints.  It’s similar to the J.Crew Minnie but these actually fit me better.  I find that I’m between sizes in the Minnie:  the 6 is too big and the 4 is too small so I’ve always hesitated getting it again; I do have it in gray in 6 that I need to have taken in.  So the Old Navy dup is a nice alternative.
  • Lastly, they had a bunch of clearance items that got me – I’m always a sucker for basics like tees and these were an amazing deal.  The striped yellow/navy ruffled tee was $4.99 in store and the short sleeved henleys were $6.

Now I need to make room in my closet for these Spring purchases….and it’s not even officially Spring yet.

    @andrea…thanks for the note…I wanted so badly to like the anchor shirt but you’re right, I saved some $$ I can spend on some other Spring find. Enjoy your weekend!
