I am so glad that I purchased this despite the mixed reviews. This disappeared from the website for a while and when I ordered my usual size, there were just 3 left. I took a chance since some of the reviews suggested that it was tight fitting in the sleeves. Although I found it to be rather fitted and 3/4 sleeves, it is the look I was going for to wear with a more refined skirt bottom. I purchased it's matching sleeveless shell and I am looking forward to wearing with my white maxi skirt and Limited's long pendant necklace from last year. I will pair with my pearls when I want to dress it up. I especially love the soft material and it's contrasting patterned inside. I purchased last year's b/w grid pattern 2pc cotton sweater set and both these sets will remain a classic in my wardrobe for a while. This should have been an in-store staple. It would have sold quickly after seeing and feeling its quality. I can only hope it washes as well as last year's sweater.
I have purchased so many Limited scarves that I swore off them for a while. I purchased this one because I liked the way it looked when paired with its matching Dolman sleeve striped top. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the way this scarf draped around the neck, and the way it hangs when styled. The print looks great paired with denim and white and I plan on wearing it with more than its matching top. The print will brighten up any spring and summer day.
The online picture does not do these pants justice. The colors in the pants, along with the print pattern, are beautiful. The pattern is subtle enough that many colors can be worn with it. I purchased a yellow Ashton (for the other drapery pants) on the day I purchased this and it looked great against this print. Also, since I am 5'4" the pants are a longer fit than on the model and I actually like my fit, better--especially with a bit of a heel. Although I think these pants run slightly big, I did not size down because I like the more drapery look. The Limited has really stepped up with their pants options this season and these pants do not disappoint!
I "discovered" this top after it was sold out in my size online and in my local store. That did not, however, stop me from hunting this top down in a city that I was due to visit 150 miles away! The sales girl, Angie, could not have been nicer and stated that she understood my passion. My local store had this top on a mannequin paired with the matching Intricate Stripe Scarf and it could not have been cuter. Every once in a while, a piece that everyone falls in love with is sold out BEFORE it is even reviewed online and loyal Limited customers like me "miss out" on great pieces during great promos. I did not get this at the promo price coupled with Virtual Dollars because mine were gone, but I got it anyway. Lesson learned: Review and share info with others about great pieces and 2. The Limited does not allow local stores to take charges over the phone and ship to clients. This was an expensive lesson, but I'm pleased with my find!
The sleeves are a bit tight. I've also read reviews of other sweaters where this has been the issue. This is a well made, beautifully designed sweater that looks great dressed up or down. I will wear with everything from my dress to my jeans. It is a great buy when purchased on promo...not sure if I would pay list price.
I purchased this with the goal of reliving the 70s (along with college/HS Reunions) but with a more glamorous flair. Bingo. Mission Accomplished!. This jumpsuit is made of a substantial material that flatters the figure rather than showcasing the shame. I love that the style can be dressed up (jewelry/shoes) or dressed down (jacket/shoes) and that it is in a color other than black. Although most will probably wear this as a Holiday piece, I will be wearing this for years to come. The color can be worn all year long and the pockets and sash are such an added bonus. Although I am rather full chested, there was no side boob even when trying on without a bra. The fit is more true to size or perhaps runs a bit large because I've gained some weight recently and purchased this in my usual Limited size and would not feel bad about wearing it now although taking off a few pounds would make it more flattering. The only drawback at 5'4" I will have to have this hemmed but that's a small price to pay for such a gorgeous piece! Get this before it sells out--especially for some of us older ladies who will be the only ones who understand the title reference. :)
This sweater has to be one of my biggest disappointments. I so wanted to love this and hastily ordered when the Limited ran some special promos. I agree 100% with the first reviewer and can't understand why the head hole is so small? The problem lies with the material used for this sweater. I have been tremendously satisfied with sweaters purchased earlier this season, both cotton and other fabrics. It is just baggy, thin, unflattering and not worth purchasing. I will be returning this in store and trading for one of the new pieces or continuing with my long line of Ashton classics. This is one of my rare disappointments from my favorite store.
I have become such a big fan of the Ashton shirts, so I was almost a bit hesitant to try these since if it's not broken....but I'm glad I did. The fit is flattering and the style is very trendy. I purchased both the b/w checked and the red (looks burgundy)/ blue and I've received lots of compliments on the b/w. Since the weather is still warm, I wore with black capris and rolled up the sleeves which looked great and wore well. I like that the material is breathable (unlike the Ashton's on a hot day) and that it buttons all the way up which makes it great for layering. This shirt will be worn year around, which actually makes it a new favorite. I need to resist returning for the purple one. I think I'll wait until some other colors are introduced.
I would say that this top is not going to be for everyone because even though it is designed to be flattering, it shows any bumps or bulges. The top is made of substantial material which is why I gave the quality a high rating for the price point. I purchased in my normal Limited size, but the fit is more like some spandex undergarments which show flaws more than hiding them. Also, I thought the pink would be a bright pink, but it bordered more towards a dark pink (almost) a maroon. I gave it a recommendation because I think for one with a toned core, the top would be great. I also thought the neckline would be more fitted. It would be perfect if the body was less fitted and the neckline was more fitted like a mock turtle neck. I will be returning this top.
I purchased this in the navy after thinking about all of the wonderful navy print pieces in my wardrobe and thinking this would dress them up. This chiffon overlay on skirts has been a popular runway piece, but the shorter lining is best left for the younger set and does not seem very professional for many occasions which is why I chose the navy for the longer lining. I wish the polka dot one had a longer lining. I paired with a navy print Outback Red sleeveless top that was shown earlier in the season and has a beautiful abstract print that makes the skirt pop! This skirt can be paired with so many tops, especially the Ashton styles and colors. The fit was true to size (if not slightly large) because I've gained some weight (vanity sizing?). This is a nice wardrobe staple and can be dressed up or down and is not so trendy that it can't be around for a while.
Yes, it is definitely light enough to wear in the Spring and it's soft material makes it easy to push up the sleeves. I love the long sleeves which can be easily rolled or pushed up if the weather is warm. I have similar jackets from other seasons and I do wear these in the Spring and the Fall as well as the Winter months. It can probably be worn on cool Summer Days as well.
I just reviewed this skirt and reviewed down because of its extra long length. I purchased this same style in a summer skirt and the length was much more accommodating for us vertically challenged girls. I think Limited should begin a new service called Limited Custom where we pay slightly more for the length of our choice. This could be done for any item that requires length. It would save the buyer time with alterations and the Limited would have happier customers--not to mention making a bit more money. It's a win win for everyone!
I wore mine with a classy black sheath and winter white blazer. Of course it was a classic look as the colors in the scarf matched perfectly and the soft material lent itself to being worn many ways including just hanging under the lapels. You can easily twist the scarf into a style where it looks almost like a twisted jewelry accessory around the neck. The possibilities are endless and it holds it's shape.
These pants are not thin and they are not lined which would make it bulkier in my opinion. As for fitting someone with a fuller bun, that was also a concern of mine, but the designer appeared to make allowance for this as I am a size L and I liked the fit.
