Ok, so after all the hoo-ha about the 2 Old Navy striped sweater jackets, I was able to order the medium tall, thinking that would be my Goldilocks solution to fits-but-too-short (M) and long-enough-but-huge (L). Thanks again to FFM for her suggestion on calling customer service - it was helpful and painless. FFM - you are a doll!
But then the package arrived... Oh, I was so excited. And then I tried it on. I dearly wish I had not already returned the M & L because I would like to hold up the M-Tall to the L and see if, in fact, they really are THE EXACT SAME SIZE. See picture below. Left is the L, Right is the M-Tall. What do you think? Don't they look the same?
I really love this cardi. I really, really want it to work. But the process of cleaning out my closet and going through the Lenten shopping ban has made me thing much more about my purchases and whether or not they truly work for me. So I think the sweater jacket is going back. It may only be $17, but it's still not good enough.
