Dressing Room Diaries | Cyber Monday Edition

Cheers to the official start of the Christmas season, friends! Granted we’ve had our tree up for almost a week, but now I don’t have to feel guilty about it! We’ve taken our time decorating this year, and it’s been so much more enjoyable than plowing through it all in a day. I can’t wait to share our home all decked out for the season with you! (See last year’s Christmas Home Tour here.)

Today I’m bringing you a monster-sized Dressing Room Diaries, and with today being Cyber Monday, so many things we’re reviewing are on super sale (check the end of this post for discount codes for every retailer featured)!

If you’re new around here, Dressing Room Diaries is where I hunt down some of the cutest new arrivals from my favorite retailers, and review them for you. The shots aren’t good, the lighting is bad (especially now with the time change!), my hair is usually past it’s expiration, and many of the items aren’t a good fit for me…but it’s real life, real girl, real clothes…and hopefully helpful for you to see them this way, instead of perfectly styled on a model.

Fit Note: I’m 5’4″-ish, 120 pounds-isa (depending on the week’s taco count), with a slight pear shape. My usual size is an XS/0. Mama Sugarplum is 5’1″, with an hourglass figure. We typically wear the same size, but she sometimes goes with petite.

I’m going to kick it off with a few of my favorite finds…starting with this relaxed cowlneck sweater! It’s light and soft, with a flattering draped fit. It has a cut pleat in the back giving the sweater a bit of swing, so it doesn’t cling to the body. It’s on the longer side, but also looks cute with a little half-tuck (see that here). I’m seriously obsessed…to the point of wanting it in more colors!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a regular XS, but it also comes in petite sizing if you prefer it shorter.

Sweater | Jeans | Boots

I loved this funnel-neck sweater, for both the gorgeous color and soft feel, but also because it can be worn long as a tunic, or folded under with jeans.

Fit Tip: It runs large, I’m wearing an XXS.

Sweater TunicJeans | Boots

I’ve had this cardigan for a few years, and live in it while lounging around the house…but look how darling it is with jeans and boots! This brand honestly makes the softest things in my closet (and I have a few, they’re addicting!!)! This one makes a great gift, too!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS/S.

Circle CardiganJeans | Boots

This sweater is from my All About Tunics post, and I couldn’t resist adding another color. This tan is so chic! The longer back makes it long enough for leggings, and the touch of cashmere feels like a dream.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS.

Sweater Tunic | Distressed Jeans | Booties

This fleece-lined cardi isn’t new around here, but this deep burgundy is a new addition! I love the multiple styling options, not to mention the softest sweatshirt material. Pair it with a long tee and it’s great with leggings, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a regular XS.

Fleece-Lined Button Cardigan | Striped Jersey TeeJeans | Boots

This fun faux-layered top caught my eye, but unfortunately was a little big for my frame. I love the layered gingham, and the sweater is soft and drapey, with a slight bell sleeve.

Fit Tip: It runs large, I’m wearing an XS.

Mixed Media Sweater TopJeans | Boots

I’m a sucker for a good fair isle pattern in the Winter, and this one has darling bold colors, and the cutest tie-back closure at the neck. It’s soft enough to wear alone, and isn’t bulky at all. It comes in several pattern and color options. I’d layer a gingham underneath and pair it with black jeans!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS.

Fair Isle Tie-Back SweaterJeans | Boots

Gap does the cutest bold stripes and rainbow colors every Winter, and this pullover sweater has a relaxed fit and fun hoodie. The sleeve has a slight bell, but not so oversized to be restricting.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS, but would prefer the fit of a size up better.

Striped Hoodie SweaterJeans | Boots

I don’t do a lot of graphic tees, but was instantly smitten with this navy LOVE sweater. It’s fitted with a crewneck, and slightly cropped. It would be darling layered over gingham, and paired with a colorful pencil skirt, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS. If you’re long-torsoed, I’d size up.

Love SweaterJeans | Boots

We can never resist a cozy cardigan, and this oversized one could double as a coat! It’s thick and fleece-lined, with fun blouson sleeves and shawl collar. Even pockets!

Fit Tip: It’s definitely oversized, we’re both wearing XS.

Long Cardigan | Jeans | Mom’s Bootcut Jeans

This sweater tunic comes in a ton of gorgeous colors, and is long enough for leggings. The cashmere blend makes it so luxe, and super soft. It can be worn alone or layered over a collared shirt.

Fit Tip: We’re wearing regular XS.

Cashmere Tunic Sweater | Jeans | Mom’s Bootcut Jeans

I have the short-sleeve version of this ruffled peplum top, and was so excited to see this long-sleeve option. The body is sweatshirt material, and the peplum ruffle is crisp cotton. The ruffle goes all the way around, and it comes in other color combos. (Update: it’s now on sale!)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS.

Ruffle Trim Peplum SweatshirtDistressed Jeans | Booties

Here it is in solid black.

Ruffle Trim Peplum SweatshirtJeans | Boots

I love the sporty feel of this varsity-style long sleeve tee…it’s super soft cotton and slightly oversized. The stripe is painted on.

Fit Tip: It is a relaxed fit, I’m in an XS.

Varsity TeeJeans | Boots

Another darling sweatshirt option, this one is lightweight and lined in the softest fleece. The letters are puffed embroidery.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS.

Embroidered SweatshirtJeans | Boots

I was drawn to the colors of this blouse…love the shades of blush and burgundy and the silky drape of the material. The cuff at the wrist creates some billowing on the sleeve and a peasant blouse feel.

Fit Tip: I’d recommend sizing down one, this XS was too big.

Patterned BlouseJeans | Boots

Embellished sleeves are everywhere this season! This soft pullover sweater has a rolled funnel neck, and slight bell sleeves. The stripes are fun shades of pink, red and burgundy, and the sweater hits mid-hip.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing XS.

Striped Bell Sleeve SweaterJeans | Boots

I don’t know if this fuzzy cardigan is loungewear or streetwear, but I do know it feels amazing! It’s thick and super cozy. The tee says ‘sweet dreams’ and would be darling with pajama pants.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS in both.

Teddy Bear Cardigan | Sweet Dreams TeeJeans | Boots

Let’s talk outerwear…Old Navy makes great puffer and quilted vests, and I’m a fan of both. They always come in a ton of great colors, and usually patterns, too. The puffer is thick and fleece-lined with a tall collar, and the quilted is much thinner with a mock collar. Both are a great top layer, but the quilted adds less bulk.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS in both vests.

Puffer Vest | Quilted Vest | Plaid Flannel Shirt | Leopard Belt

Another great vest, this one more equipped for real cold…plus it’s cute! I love that you can style these with workout wear or cute street clothes.

Fit Tip: I always size up one in Patagonia, but especially the vests because the armholes run small.

Vest | Plaid Flannel Shirt | Leopard Belt | Jeans | Boots

I’m obsessed with this mixed-material bomber jacket…the sleeves are thick sweatshirt, and the body is puffer. It’s tailored through the shoulders and waist a bit so you don’t feel like the Michelin man.

Fit Tip: I sized up to a small for layering room.

Mixed Bomber JacketJeans | Boots

Okay, moving on to dresses and party styles! This lace overlay fit-and-flare dress looks crazy-expensive in person, and is beautifully made. The lace creates a mock neck and flutter sleeve, and is fitted through the bodice. A thick grosgrain defines the waist, and the skirt has a tiered layer of lace. The back is even more lovely, if that’s even possible!

Fit Tip: It runs small, especially if you have curves, so I’d size up one.

Lace Fit-and-Flare Dress

This lace shift dress is easy to wear and a forgiving shape. The sleeves are lace, but the body is fully lined, and it falls just above the knee. My chest doesn’t fill it out, so the v-neck is quite low on me.

Fit Tip: If you’re in-between, I’d size down. I’m wearing an XS.

Lace Shift Dress

This dress has all kinds of sass, with a fitted bodice and flared asymmetrical hem. The lace is sturdy and holds everything in place.

Fit Tip: I’d size up if you’re in-between…I’m in an XS, but it was a tight zip!

Lace Asymmetrical Dress

I’m on a jumpsuit kick and determined to find the best one for holiday season! Sometimes a girl just wants to wear pants! This crepe jumpsuit is fully-lined and thick, with a darling bow front and sassy strapless neckline. I love the pockets and fitted waist, but clearly a hem is necessary for pretty much all of them!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 0.

Strapless Jumpsuit

I may have busted out some Saturday Night Fever moves with this one, but I loved it so much! It’s a thick jersey knit material, so it moves and drapes well, and is also stretchy. The halter-style neckline is flattering for showing off shoulders (everyone has nice shoulders!!), and the v-neck is just deep enough to give it a little sex appeal.

Fit Tip: I’m long-torsoed, so the XS was too short in the stride for me. I’ve already ordered the small for comparison, as well as this similar option.

Jersey Knit Jumpsuit

I totally goofed the sizing on this one…I ordered a petite when I actually need a regular…but I wanted you to see it none the less because it’s a really chic jumpsuit. The cold-shoulder still allows you to cover your upper arms, and the jeweled belt creates a defined waist. The material is a thick crepe.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 2p, but need a regular 2.

Cold-Shoulder Jumpsuit

Now it’s cozy time…I found two great robe options. This first one is Barefoot Dreams, the same brand and material as my favorite cardigans, and just about the softest, plushest thing ever. It comes in several colors, and is very thick and warm.

Fit Tip: It’s one size.

Plush Robe

When it comes to robes though, I prefer something much more lightweight and thin, and this one is perfect. It’s silky soft organic cotton, and stays cool, even when I’m blow-drying my hair! I love the pockets and knee-length, too. Either robe would make a great gift, too.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.

Organic Cotton Robe (love this jogger set in the same organic cotton, too)

I grabbed these plaid flannel pajama pants at 40% off and love them! The plaid is perfect for Christmas morning, and all Winter long. They have an elastic waistband and adjustable drawstring.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS. They’re extra long, but the length shrank a little when I washed and dried them.

T-Shirt | Flannel PJ Pants | Beanie Hat

These jogger-style pajama pants are flannel, as well, but the banded ankle keeps them from dragging the ground. Plus the patterns are so stinking cute!! The pullover hoodie is fleecey soft and slightly cropped.

Fit Tip: I sized up to a small in both.

Hooded PJ Top | Plaid Jogger-style PJ Pants

Finally, this flannel set comes in so many fun patterns, and are so warm and soft. I love the contrasting cuffs and piping, too.

Fit Tip: They run large, I’m in an XS.

Flannel Pajama Set

Woo-Wee, this post was a doozy! I do hope you found it helpful, and maybe discovered some new goodies, and even gift ideas.
