Marla Wynne– Sleeveless Turtleneck Sweater & Matching Duster WOW!
Friday, August 21-2015… While it’s true that I’m a bargain-hunter to the bone, I must admit to paying Full-Price for things from time-to-time. Thus, am I here now to hang my head in shame havng done just that… and it’s all Marla Wynne’s fault! *lol*
First of all, I’m a SUCKER for Sleeveless Turtlenecks. Few-And-Far-Between are these kinds of garments found. And I don’t know why. They are so comfortable, so cozy, so classy. And, wearing a coat or jacket over it provides great warmth when outside. Yet, once inside, say, at the movies or a restaurant, you’re suddenly too hot with a long-sleeved sweater. Not to fear with these… just take the jacket off and you will find you’re still warm enough with the turtleneck while the sleevelessness gives a wonderful cooling relief.
Second of all, I’m a PINK girl… ‘nuf said about that! *lol*
So, I ask you, HOW could I have passed-up these offerings… no matter the price? How? How? How?
The temptation was too great… I fell in love, and caved completely.

Then I thought, ‘Well, I should get the Winter White too because, besides Pink, White is my go-to during the winter months.’ Och!
As if all this is not enough, Marla then tempts me beyond all sanity with this gem… a matching Duster Sweater. Which, of course, I had to get because how many times does this kind of sweater come around? Yes, I know, I’ve gone completely nuts!

Marla, Marla, Marla… what have you done to me! I have no regrets in purchasing, at full-price no less!, your lovelies; but I think I need a fainting-couch about now, *rofl*
Monday, September 21-2015… AN UPDATE— First, the Sleeveless Turtlenecks have been lowered in price by $10-dollars today. So, if you bought any of these call for a Price Adjustment.
Second… I bought the ‘Soft Teal’ Turtleneck, but don’t like the colour. There’s just a tinge of green to it, (as expected with a ‘Teal’ colour), but I took the chance anyway to see if it would suit me. It doesn’t, so I’m sending it back.
Lastly, I had returned the two Dusters because they were way too big. I wear an XL all-day-long and that’s what I ordered in both the Turtlenecks and Dusters. The Turtlenecks fit perfectly, but the Dusters were HUGE… they fit like a 2X! I reordered in Size Medium and they fit perfectly now even tho I’m a standard XL.
In looking at the ‘Details’ of the Dusters, it says ‘Loose-Fitting: Designed for 4 to 6 inches of ease between body and garment.’ Sheesh! 4"-6" is HUGE! Why they were made like this is anyone’s guess; thus, they ARE NOT True-to-Size. I hate having to send clothing back, and reordering, because of discrepensies in Sizing like this.
If I see something that I absolutely love, I will pay full price and not care. Because I tend to wear it all the time, I am certainly getting my money’s worth. Today is the day to buy those full priced items for sure. The S&H is getting so expensive. Many garments are $7-$9. I found jeans that are $8.95. Seems a bit high to me. I’m pretty sure HSN doesn’t pay anywhere near that, and they need to follow QVC’s lead of $3 shipping. There are very few ohmygosh gotta have it items for me, thankfully.
The sweaters are just beautiful! And they’re long enough for me. I would love to have the Soft Teal and Winter White. But think I’ll go with the Teal since I’ve already placed orders today.
Thursday, Sept 10-2015…As posted, I bought the Marla Wynne Duster in both ‘Winter White’ and the ‘Woodrose’ last month on 2-Flex and paid $8.23 shipping EACH!
After I get back from the Post Office today, (having had to send them back because they were too big), I come to HSN and see that ALL Fashion, excluding ‘Clearance’, is FREE SHIPPING TODAY!
So, I go to the Marla Wynne Dusters and see that, indeed, they are all shipping for free, but also they are now on 4-Flex! So, I reordered both colours in Size Medium this time. I hope these fit properly!
Wednesday, Sept 9-2015… Got my Turtlenecks & Dusters today! Here are my Reviews of them.
FABULOUS! I LOVE sleeveless turtlenecks, and these do not disappoint! Got the Winter White and Woodrose. The MATERIAL is heavyweight quality; perfect for Fall, Winter, and Spring; and requires HAND WASH cold/LAY FLAT to dry. I ordered my normal SIZE, XL, (I’m a 40-D, 38-Waist, 42-Hip), and it fits beautifully. Being 5’3, it comes down below my tush… always a good thing! The HIP area is roomy. The ARMHOLES fit too… no droop! I Highly Recommend this Top. Buy it with Confidence. You’ll be glad you did!
BEAUTIFUL but SIZING WAY OFF… This is a beautiful Duster, and I highly recommend it IF you get the right SIZE. I bought two and had to send them back. I wear an XL all-day-long, and that’s what I bought in these and the matching Sleeveless Turtlenecks. The Turtlenecks fit perfectly, (see my Review), while the Dusters fit like a 2X… they are humongous! And I should know as I used to wear a 2X before I lost weight. So, keep the SIZING in mind before you order. Other than that, it’s a gorgeous, heavyweight, quality Duster.
Saturday, August 22-2015… Oh, for goodness sake! After yesterday’s extravagance, I figured in-for-a-penny-in-for-a-pound and just purchased the Duster in White. Don’t be surprised if, by the end of this day, I don’t go back and purchase it all in the Blue as well, egads!!!
Thank you all for your replies. Yes, sometimes we just feel so justified in spluring on something we LOVE to pieces. And, for me, this set is it. Still, it kills me to pay full-price, *lol*.
Alas, they’re all on ‘Extended Delivery’, so, who knows if I’ll actually get them. But one thing I’ve learned, as SherryHasToShop pointed out, oft times while waiting for a price decrease the item sells-out and then you’re left with regret. I couldn’t let that happen with these sweaters.
This is my first time purchasing a Marla Wynne product, so, I’m waiting on pins-and-needles to see if these fit me properly. I sure hope they do.
Marla is calling the Blue, ‘Soft Teal’. Now, this says to me that the Blue has a bit of a greenish cast to it. There is no video on these pieces yet, so it’s hard for me to tell if this is so. On my computer they look downright ‘baby or powder’ Bluish. What do you think? I would welcome your opinions about this ‘colour’.
Hi FaireMaiden, two very nice pieces to add to your wardrobe and I agree sometimes you have too pay full price to get what you want. But with these two pieces you will get so many outfits out of them it is worth it. Marla Wynn’s styles remind me of Eileen Fischer’s designs and I surely can’t afford Ms Fischer so Marla is the answer, love her designs. Thanks for sharing and I know you will enjoy wearing these.
well, thanks a lot … I’m not blaming Marla… you pointed this out! I did see the t neck in the fashion edit commercial and thought so pretty but…. you sold me! 😉 Looks like I need to make even more room in my closet. I have so much HSN stuff on eBay right now (I’m happy to report I lost weight) that I look like I robbed the store LOL. I LOVE that pink for fall!!
Enjoy your lovely purchases, FaireMaiden! If you adore something splurging is worth it. Plus, you can always get a price adjustment if the price drops. I LOVE Marla’s soft pink shades and genuinely regret missing out on a sweater a while ago….I should have selected my size and color while available. Lesson learned- if it speaks to you, get it while you can (my nickname is truly appropriate lol).
FaireMaiden, your new clothes are lovely. Enjoy them! I am going to take a look….
You are too funny! I totally agree with you, though. I don’t usually pay retail, but Marla’s style just screams unique. When one knows what the prices would be in a department store, it seems a bargain! Love your choices. I am waiting. for the pear colored woven sweater pictured with her new cape
Oh my gosh these are super nice!! i will keep them in mind for when i do get rich. a little too expensive for me. yikes!
