ONE STITCH GOES A LONG WAY: Anthropologie Lokoya Tucked Tunic

So many has complained about this top in their reviews that it was shapeless and too loose on the anthropology website.  I first encountered this top in the store and wanted to try it on because it looked interesting on the rack.  When I initially tried it on, it was that shapeless, loose look because it was too big on me.  But, I have added a ribbon to modify this top so it looks the way it looked on the models.  I truly think that the stitch across to make the tucked in look is genius.  But, perhaps, this top just runs big and thus, people find it to be "shapeless", and unflattering.  The top on me here is size xs.  I have ordered PXXS to try on and will make a separate post if a smaller size looks better.

With ribbon tie in the back - much better
Vince Camuto cotton pencil skirt (at Nordstrom Rack for $10!), (similar in shape and fit
Ann Taylor Loft chain necklace (available in store)

 No ribbon tie - much looser and has less shape.  Will compare this xs to the pxxs when top arrives.

 I love this purse because it's the perfect size to fit my labtop + charger, a thin review book, my wallet, and phone.  That's really all I need.

 This chain necklace is still available in store.  But, for some reason, it's no longer sold online.  I normally don't wear a lot of heavy, big jewelry.  Somehow, I really like this necklace.  It's simple and adds so much to a plain white top.  My outfit would look so different without this necklace.
