Welcome back, ladies for fall clothing shopping with me and my friend, Iris. I did not mean to imply that the pandemic has ended…perhaps I could have chosen a different headline yesterday, but what I did mean…is that the pandemic has changed our in-store shopping experience.
Iris and I both have body types which need certain fit options. So, when we did not find that in our first three places, she said…”I know where to go!”
And off to Chico’s we went. Thanks to store manager, Silvia, and her associates at The Shops at La Cantera, we had a great experience, because Chico’s does meet most fit needs.
THE PETITE IRIS
This is the outfit Iris purchased at Chico’s this fun shopping day. She prefers Chico’s when shopping pants…mostly because they do have the petite sizes in store for her to try on. Take a look at the regular size and see if you notice the difference.
The top was much longer and though it is difficult to see it in the fit of the pant, the stride and upper portion of the petite fits her better. She loved this outfit and bought the sizes in the first picture.
NEW ITEMS TO TRY ON FOR ME
I have shopped Chico’s often in the last few weeks, but there were three items I wanted to try. I really like these mesh tanks under jackets and with the 25% off, this was a good purchase for me. The mesh tanks are very flattering.
This picture is from White House Black Market, but I wanted to show you another way to wear these sleeveless tanks in the Fall….especially for those of us in warmer climates.
I found this Double Faced Contrast Stitch Jacket on the clearance sale rack for $29. It is perfect for fall (heavier fabric) and has camel colored top stitching. I plan to style it with camel jeggings, a white blouse, and brown booties. I love it and tried it on in a smaller size!!
This is a fun blouse/jacket and is featured close-up in the opening picture. It had a nice fit, but I am not a fan of double pockets on me. I fell like it places headlights on my larger chest area, so I am not comfortable in it…though the jacket is cute!
I want to thank Chico’s for maintaining a nice selection in-store of different sizes. It makes such a difference. I also think it works better for them because they are dealing with fewer numbers of sizes.
Today’s slideshow is dedicated to Chico’s and does feature a few of these pieces we found. I hope these two shopping posts have been helpful to you and maybe encouraged retailers to add more sizes in-store!
