For a limited time, use code THANKS for 40% off online (no code needed in-store) plus get a meager 2.5% cash back if you go through ebates (referral). I think I was spoiled by AT's previous stackable sales. Plain 40% off just isn't as enticing anymore!
My friend showed me this suit today and I thought it was beautiful. It's one of those sets that would look striking together, yet operate easily as separates. The color oozes elegance, and the shorter blazer with "X" center (reminiscent of my favorite Theory Gratian jacket) tends to be flattering on petite figures. I won't be picking this up because it won't fit sans alterations, but if you measure a little bigger than 32-24-32, Ann Taylor's suiting could work nicely. The AT tropical wool skirts I own (and got altered) are work staples, and do not wrinkle on me.
I wonder how many times AT will bring back this exact vintage floral lace dress. When they introduced it in April 2010, I loved it. I was surprised to see the same dress come back this Spring at the factory store (when I made my splurge), and then at the regular store, and then a full-length version in their wedding line...but now, once again in their Winter new arrivals? I understand it was a hit and people will probably still buy it, but a design that I once found exquisite is now starting to feel stale. I wonder if it's becoming an AT signature item like their perfect pumps.
