Old Navy Linen-Blend Cropped Utility Jacket, size XS petite | LOFT Destructed Hem High Rise Kick Crop Jeans in Clean Dark Wash, size 0 regular | Lancaster Paris Canvas Bag (Poshmark find) | Zara Vinyl Pearl Slide Sandals
I bought this linen-blend cropped jacket at end of February and I recently bought this micro stitch tool which helps keep the sleeves cuffed as seen in this short clip. The tags are mini in size and barely noticeable (the tool comes with a few sets of white and black micro tags). The jacket in size XS petite is an oversized fit and the sleeves are very loose and unflattering without some adjustments. I used the micro stitch tool to create loose folds/ruching under the sleeves (starting a few inches below the armpits) to temporarily shorten the length as seen here. The needle is very sharp and I poked myself and drew blood when I wasn’t careful which quickly taught me to keep the cap on the tip when it’s not in use.
I had to have these dainty pearl vinyl slides after seeing them online even though I bought two pairs of slides that ended up not being very comfortable the year before. I usually wear US 7 and I took size 7 1/2 which is 38 EUR.
