Sydney has been having some truly mad weather this week - 15 degrees C one day, 23 degrees the next. Confusing, and makes it hard to know what to wear from one day to the next.
Earlier this week I made a purchase from Matches. I've shopped at Matches before in London, but have never ordered from them online. I must say I am Very Impressed with their service!
I ordered a sale item on Monday, and it arrived on Thursday!
This is the very lovely box it came in - it's thick, marbled cardboard:
The box came with a card saying who had packed it!
And here is the item:
Blue DVF skirt. It was on sale for a great price, so I ordered it without having tried it on in the local shop. A bit of a risk, but the wonderful Matches online store offers free returns even on sale items!!
I ordered a size 0, as I almost always go with the smallest size possible these days.
Back in the good ole days, before vanity sizing, I used to take a size 2 or 4 in DVF
These days, though, I'm a size 0!!
As you can see, it fits well, although it's still a touch big around the waist. I may get it taken in a touch for the summer, but for now it's fine with a knit over the waistband.
It does astound me that a size 0 is so generous, though. I wonder what really tiny women do for clothes?
This is the second blue item that arrived this week:
It's a blue Tippi sweater from good ole J Crew. I got it with the 20% off Magalog15 code, which also gives free shipping, so it ended up being a very good price, about $50 Aus.
It's a great colour and I'm very happy with it. This is an XS, for reference.
The third blue item is coming, and should be with me early next week, so watch this space!
We're off to a housewarming party tonight and a big Sunday lunch do tomorrow.
What are your weekend plans?
Any blue purchases for you?
