In the dressing room – City Chic & Peter Alexander

The other day, I posted on facebook admiring this top (& a skirt that I couldn’t find instore). Something a little different for City Chic and quite fashion forward. I decided whilst I was near a store today to go in and try it on. I often find CC sizing all over the shop, so picked this up in a L to try.

Top – City Chic – $119.95 – Tried on in a size L (Probably could go a M)

It has pros and a con for me. Mostly pros. Firstly,  I probably could have sized down. The shirt is really fitted with the bandeau being slightly stretchy. The bandeau is totally removable, which means you can wear this 3 ways (1. Shirt. 2. Bandeau. 3. Shirt + Bandeau). I also loved the hard wear details. The con is, it will have to be ironed and I don’t iron.

Next up, was Peter Alexander. I’ve always admired their range of pyjamas and lusted over many things. They always have such great collections. A few months ago, they released a new Plus Size range! YAY! Sadly, a lot of the licensed collections (Disney, Muppets, SpongeBob etc) aren’t included in the PS range, but they have just released a super cute Cat & Dog collection.

Cat Tee – Size 1 || Dog Pants – Size 2

Seeing as I’d never tried them on before, I wanted to check out the sizing. The 1+ is described as size 16-18, the 2+ as 20-22 and the 3+ as 24-26. As sizing goes, I think it’s pretty right. I am smaller on top than bottoms and found the sizing I chose comfy. The pants are slightly oversized on me (like I like pyjama pants) and have a drawstring waist. I could happily wear these lower on my hips, but pulled them up a bit to show that they are quite high waisted.

So here’s the question, would you choose Dogs or Cats!?

    The shirt looks awesome on you, and those PJs look so cute and comfy! I like mine a little baggy, too- I find it more comfortable that way. xx

  • Dogs all the way!

    I didn’t know they were doing plus sizes. I sometimes buy the men’s sleep shorts from PA. Even if the women’s fit, they are way too short. I don’t mind showing some leg but I don’t want my lady parts exposed! The men’s shorts are just above the knee so perfect length 🙂

    Ooooh, I really like that shirt! It suits you so well. You don’t iron? Bring all your ironing to me! I love it because I am a weirdo.

  • I’m lol’ing at the iron! Yeah I definitely think you could go down a size on that, I feel like the bandeau section needs to look more fitted or else it kinda acts like a giant stripe! Is that doggy actually on the top of the hanger? Sooooo cool, do you get to keep the hanger or is it one of those shops that have cool ones and they keep them?

    “All you need is love and a cat” – that’s pretty much perfect!

  • Both! I’d choose both!
    I love both animals. Don’t make me choose between them 🙂
