Amen to ngg(Cori) and Tracey regarding Nordstrom's Reinvent Yourself flop. I've wanted to replace the classy silk blouses and sweaters I bought at Nordstrom when I started my first professional job ten years ago. I appreciated Nordstrom's selection of well fitting, natural fiber, classically styled petites clothing and bought all I could afford back then.

Now I have more money to spend on clothes, and nothing to spend it on at Nordstrom's. I loved Nordstrom's Classique form fitting long sleeved silk sweaters because they're not too tight to wear to work. The "reinvented" ones on the racks this year, however, had sleeves 2" - 4" too long, even though they were petites. Were they using orangutans as fitting models???

The salesperson I talked to said they'd changed brands (Caslon) and "the buyers were aware of the problem." Maybe I'll have better luck this fall.
