Ask Angie: Foxcroft Shirt? ETA shirt photos

Have you seen this Foxcroft shirt?  I have been looking for a replacement black dot on white shirt.  This one seems to fit well but isn't really a polkadot.  Should I keep this one or keep looking?  It's different, but is it different in a good way?
ETA photos: 1-4 is the Foxcroft shirt under consideration. 5-8 is my existing Liz Clairborn shirt. My old one is a tailored fit and old enough to have darts! It is used most for layering. I thought I'd like a more fluid fit that could be worn alone.

    Did you already post a pic? I imagine that this would look really great on you with your style, coloring, body type, etc.

    I remember that in person this has a texture to it - the black dots kinda stick out a bit since they're embroidery. I liked the look but it did have a more homespun boho vibe.

    I didn't post a picture wearing it but could get one today.
    Laura, yes, that is the shirt. The "dots" are more like bunches of black threads with the ends out to give texture.

    I added photos wearing both Foxcroft and old shirt above. The old one is a tailored fit and good for layering but not so good on it's own. I wanted something more fluid, I think.

    The Foxcroft shirt looks like a better fit than your old LC shirt, Joy. Make sure it doesn't gape at the bust when you sit down. If we are good - a hundred thumbs up.

    I really like the texture of this blouse.  I think it's fun!

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Thank you, Angie, I'll give that a try. Thank you, Kirstjen. I wondered how the texture looks to others.

  • Glory replied 3 years ago

    Absolutely love it on you. I much prefer the fit to your previous one. I also like the embroidered bits. another thumbs up from me.

    I really love the fact that's it's a little different than a plain polka dot.  

  • Donna replied 3 years ago

    It's really lovely on you! Now I want one! : )

  • Firecracker replied 3 years ago

    I'm a texture fan, so I love it! I can't get over how great the fit looks on you, too. It really depends on how you like the texture, I'd say. Your older one does have some texture in the weave, it looks like.

    I love the fit and the texture of the fabric. It looks as if it were tailored just for you!

  • Sterling replied 2 years ago

    I'm another "yay," Joy.  I like it a lot.  

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you Bernard and Sterling. This was from last year's NAS. I did buy the Foxcroft shirt but have not worn it much. Maybe this fall. The old LizC shirt in 5-8 is long gone.

  • Angie replied 2 years ago

    The Foxcroft shirt fits much better than your old one. Looks great. KEEP. 

  • Linda replied 2 years ago

    What everyone else said, plus, I have several Foxcroft blouses and the quality is fantastic and they wash beautifully.

    Angie, the sit down to make sure it doesn't gap test is new to me, but explains a lot. :) Joins the sit down to make sure it doesn't ride too high test, and the sit down to see if it's comfortable in the waist test.
    Any more tests we should know about?

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    For shoes, I always test to see if I can stride quickly without them rubbing or falling off...the run around the shoe displays test.
    Another is to put arms over your head or at least out in front of you to see how coat and jacket sleeves would feel when driving or active. Sometimes they feel too tight, especially in the shoulders, upper arm, or even back.

  • Barbara Diane replied 2 years ago

    Thanks Joy. I plan on looking at both coats and shoes, so these will be useful.
