Chico's - Saturday Shopping

Last Saturday's shopping took me to my Mall's Chico's store.  The items above that I purchased are both casual and dressy. A great Florida summer, out to dinner, look.  I also have a navy sleeveless sweater that works together with the pants.  I usually avoid light colors on the top and find darker colors to be more flattering but this seems work.  Together it is almost a monochrome,  solid look.  I love the way these fabrics drape in a very feminine way - I am becoming very aware of the "The Feminine  Differential".  I am thinking sandals or low heels white/grey sling back pumps.   I hope to post photos soon.  


Almost all malls across the country have Chico's, White House Black Market and Soma apperal stores.  Chico's is the holding company and describes itself as a leading omni-channel specialty retailer of women's private branded, sophisticated, casual-to-dressy clothing, intimates, complementary accessories, and other non-clothing items. 

That works for me and I am starting to like Chico's more in spite of their weird sizing.  If you are not aware of the way the size by category fits, know that trying on items is a must, before purchasing.  Sometimes I am a zero; sometimes a one.  Typically a generous fit.  Go figure - pun intended.   

One of my favorite on-line/catalog retailers is "Boston Proper" which was at one time part of the Chico's empire.  It has been recently sold and the brand will continue as an on-line/catalog seller.  It is always a fun catalog to study but I seldom purchased because of its targeted youth market look.
