I'm still waiting on my backordered La Redoute skirt and boots, which have supposedly shipped, but today I received an order I'd placed after that one. All is well except for a brocade mandarin-style jacket which is mysteriously 6 sizes larger than what I thought I'd ordered. I hate doing exchanges, but I don't have any choice with this one. And then there's the red merino wool cardigan. It's marked the correct size, when I try it on it stretches nicely to fit over my shoulders and it zips up fine (although I didn't expect 3/4 rather than long sleeves), but I swear when I hold it up it looks like a medium-size child's sweater. I'm small, but I'm really not that small. Very strange.

Nice to meet you too...

And lucky you, I've already inundated you with fashiony fluff! Worry not, it's not usually this bad.

those wacky french people! ;)

my size 22 dress was more like a size 26, which is why it's at Amanda's being altered.

Yep, I'll be sending the sweater and jacket back for exchanges. I usually have good luck with them, but I'm now remembering the year I kept trying to get a sweater in the color the catalog called "raspberry," but they kept sending me something that was definitely pink.

BTW, their shoes run a size small. :-)
