My turtleneck is from Gap, but I couldn't find a picture, so I'm substituting the J.Crew one in its place. I'd love to have the bag...

  1. FFM,

    OT: Would you say the Fresco cardigan IRL looks totally different colorwise than online? I liked the IRL pictures that you and another lady posted but online it looks horrible and garrish???

    Thanks for your opinion.

  2. Hi anon@2:24! The online pictures look nothing like the way it does IRL. My photos are closer to the way it really looks...it's really very pretty and the colors are beautiful. It's on my wishlist waiting for a markdown. :) HTH!

  3. FFM: Another gorgeous, classic outfit! I am so sad the Maggie didn't fit me well, as it makes every set you post look so polished. Great investment!

  4. Oh, also, anon...I agree with FFM. The Fresco cardi is gorgeous IRL. It's also on my wishlist :) One weird thing, though, I did find the arms a little baggy. FFM, did you notice that? Maybe it was the one I tried.

  5. FFM,

    Thanks for the reply. I thought as much but wanted to double check b/c I don't have a store anywhere nearby. I live part time in the US/part time overseas. So if I ordered returning is a pain!

    Would love to hear about the arm issue as well!

    I am a HUGE fan of the Maggie. How many colors did you end up keeping? (I am almost embarassed to say how many I ended up with...just ordered the Bright Berry this week:) as well as having the yellow and black. I never buy multiples of anything but made this exception. I think it will be wearable for many years.

  6. THANK YOU SMARTY! :)

    Anon@2:24/5:15 and Smarty: I didn't happen to notice the arms being baggy, but will be visiting my J.Crew in the morning for a special event, and will make sure to try it on again if they still have it in my size. I'll post back here about it tomorrow afternoon. :)

    I actually own 3 Maggies, as well...Black, Camel, and Ivory. I really consider them to be investment pieces because they are so classic. I will be wearing them for many years to come. :)

  10. Hi Melissa! Did you make it this morning? Maybe I saw you and didn't even know it. :)

  11. Ok...on the Fresco Cardigan. I tried on the Small again which is my *normal* cardigan size, and agree that the arms were a little loose. I am used to mainly wearing Jackie Cardigans, and they are always fitted in the size Small. I don't think the arms *look* bad, they just feel looser than what I'm used to. I still plan to get one in the near future. :)
