I don't very much like Talbots because, in my opinion, it fails in sophistication. I feel as if it is trying to have both an American and British sensibility- but it doesn't work. I don't like the pastel colors here. I'd rather go to Anne Taylor's. However, while the style is not one that I would follow, the service here was just wonderful- they assisted me and gave great recommendations. I walked away with a light orange sweater; I find that it's okay to mix clothes from Talbots with something from your own wardrobe (preferably something dark to contrast); en entire outfit from this store would be bad in taste.
