I finally left work and went to scout out some things for my project and ended up in Ross. I found this really cute sweater top/dress and it was only $9.99! I don't usually wear cowl necks and/or sweaters much since I'm in Hawaii and I think it's too heavy for our weather, although when the temperature dips a bit, you see a lot of locals freezing and pulling out winter wear. I think it's kind of funny since we're actually still quite balmy compared to the rest of the nation. Anyway, I digress. So I bought it and brought it home to try on. I'm still not sure if the cowl neck is a bit too bulky and large for me or if that's the way a cowl neck is supposed to be. The shoulders kind of droop down a bit but if I attach shoulder pads, it will look much better.
I actually have super flat shoulder pads in this pic--need to use a little thicker ones.
Do you think that it's too bulky in the back neckline area? So is it a keeper or shall I return it? I only bought it because it was quite cheap and I'm going to Las Vegas at the end of February when it'll still be quite cool. I was planning on layering this over a long sleeved black t-shirt and black leggings or skinny jeans. I realize that the casino areas are quite warm but in case we happen to go out shopping or to a show.
Thanks for your input!
