I got a request asking about the Anthropologie hoodie I bought and I wore it yesterday in order to take some pictures. Overall, I love it! Zip-up hoodies used to be a staple in my wardrobe while I was in high school and in college but around my last year, I realized I needed to up the ante and quit dressing so casually. However, as soon as I spotted the Fancy Clad Hoodie, I knew that this darling little ruffle sweater was anything but ordinary college daze attire.

It is incredibly soft and stretchy thanks to its mix of poly, spandex, and rayon. It is also machine washable. I may just wash it by hand in order to ensure it holds its shape. I find that rayon can be tricky to wash. I've had a few tops and dresses made of rayon shrink to the point of non-wearability. I don't want to take any chances with this one. In general, dry cleaning is best with rayon but since this is a blend, I think I'll be safe.

My only reservation then is sleeve length. The sleeves are long, but they don't come up to my wrists. No, they come just shy of being full length. But, they aren't quarter sleeved either. I guess this is just another example of being petite and not having the typical "average" sized limbs. I personally don't mind the slightly awkward length. Maybe I should care, but I don't! I can overlook things easily Readers.



The ruffle is on one side of the zipper. It comes together very nicely when zipped closed.



What I'm Wearing:
Anthropologie Fancy Clad Hoodie size M. My usual S was too snug in the arms. I would say size up.
White H&M Camisole
Express Stella Skinny Jeans (old style and wash)
Vera Wang Lavender Ballet Flats
Zara Bag *loves*

  6. What a clever idea! The sweater looks great on you...and personally, i can overlook the sleeves as well. In fact, I'd probably fold them up so that they appear 3/4 sleeve :)~ problem solved.

  8. Super cute hoodie (but I don't see a hood?)! Your blog drew me in when you said you love fashion but don't take it too seriously. Totally refreshing and awesome that you still look just as good as those who do!

    Have a lovely day!
