Sadly, I was unable to make it to my store’s Luxe event due to work, work, work. I was able to head over on Saturday afternoon to check out the new arrivals from this week and take some pics.
All-Spice Tee – Size S, #31249, Color IVO, $34.50 (not online)
I’ve started trying the size smalls in J Crew tees instead of the Mediums. I’ve found each material type give me a different fit. I think this is the Ringspun and it’s a little tight. The slub cotton tee below it a looser fit in the same size.
Eiffel Tower Tee – Size S, #30847, Color PEA, $36.50 (not online)
I believe this is a slub cotton. I saw the Eiffel tower on it out of the corner of my eye and knew immediately I was buying this.
See it on Ema.
Marled Boyfriend V-Neck Tee – Size S, Color-Heather Pewter, $72
The small was a little tight in the arms for me but fit loose in the chest and waist so I don’t think I’d take a Medium. It was very comfortable but overall, not for me.
Ikat Bustier Dress – Size 8
I tried this on for fun. The size 8 was too big in the bust but fit well in the waistband. The size 6 would have been too tight in the waistband. It’s a very pretty dress and has pockets and an exposed back zipper. My SA suggested putting the shirt underneath since I really don’t do strapless. It doesn’t look too bad.
See it on DrDrama – she looks hawt!
Drea Dress – Size S
I’m calling this the Drea Tunic, meant to be worn OVER skinny pants, like the Minnies. Cinching it a little tighter at the waist and raising it was not a pretty picture, so you won’t see it. 🙂
Sweaters & Outerwear
Marled Shawl-Collar Cardigan – Size S, $128
This is a really nice cardigan and it has two exposed zippers at the pockets. I just can’t justify buying it when I may only wear it two or three times. It also comes in Marled Saddle, which looks like a tan color.
Arrow Sweater-Jacket – Size M, $138, Color HEL-Heather Elm
I randomly picked this because I thought it looked cute. Not for me but cute none-the-less. I would have to cuff the sleeves as they were took long but a bit too boxy for me. It also comes in Black, Heather Caramel, Heather Carbon and Heather Grey.
Utility Jacket with Removable Faux Fur Collar – Size 8, Color SGR, $378 (not online)
This has an inner tie to cinch the waist and the collar is removable. The size 8 fit big through the body but well in the shoulders for me. The size 6 might have been a little tight in the shoulders.
Donegal Tweed School-boy Blazer – Size 6, Color ALU-Aluminum, also comes in Moss, $198
The fit of the 6 was great for me through the arms and shoulders but could be a little more fitted through the waist. I have too many blazers I rarely get to wear but would certainly love this one!
Crinkled Silk Tempest Skirt – Size 8, $138, Color-Rust
This was sitting at my waist and was a little tight. No elastic waistband (finally!) to help out. Too short for me and a Size 10 would have added bulk/width, not length. There is something interesting about the print and color that I like. (2nd pic below is with flash.)
Sequin Pencil Skirt – Size 6, $138, Color-BSH, Brown Sheen
worn with Bayberry Flouncett Blouse – Size 6, $98, Color-DPL, Dark Plum
I like the pencil skirt but the sequins get stuck together so you have to CARFULLY separate them. The color is gorgeous. I couldn’t get a decent shot with flash, though. The blouse is pretty and goes well with the skirt (and another below) but makes the outfit a little too stuffy for me. I think the skirt with the Denim Perfect Shirt and the blouse, un-tucked, with the Minnies or rolled up jeans would be better.
Wool Flannel Fallyn Skirt – Size 6, $98, Color DRO, Dusty Rose
This skirt is very lightweight which surprised me. This size was a teensy bit tight for me but the length was perfect (21″). If I bought this I’d wear Spanx under or size up to an 8. (2nd pic is with flash.)
Felted Wool Mini – Size 6, $88, Color DCY, Dark Cypress
This is a very pretty green and would love if there were a little more length in the skirt. I think even with the shape and cut it would still look great a little longer in length. (2nd pic is with flash.)
Fountain Cami – Size 6, $98, Color MST, Metallic Stone
Meh…I’m not so into this. It’s a pretty top but I don’t care for how the ruffles are placed and it’s boxy. I think there was a side zip.
Khloe Jacquard Cami – Size 6, $88, Color BST, Blush Stone
This is very pretty but I would like to see the Cobblestone color IRL. Again a little boxy but would look great under a blazer.
Silk and Sequin Scoopneck Tee – Size S, $148, Color OMO, Olive Moss
This runs big (I sized down to a Small) but this is a pretty color.
Faded Paisley Flouncette Blouse – Size 6, $98, Color WAS, White Ash
Gingham Perfect Shirt – Size 6, $78, Color SHY, #29862
I wanted this shirt but I have the larger gingham shirt in the same purple from the summer.
See it on AppGal.
Vintage Bateau Top – Size S, $42.50, Color NAVy
I like the fit of the small much better than the medium (below in red-orange). I bought this and when I looked in my closet I realized I had the Perfect Fit Stripe Boatneck in Navy/White. So I’ll return and get the Red-Orange.
Vintage Bateau Top – Size M, $42.50, Color ROR, Red-Orange
Finally. I’ve been working on this post since Saturday!
