Yes, I bared my legs yesterday. I normally don’t do that in February, but I wanted to wear this dress, and it was the perfect weather for it (mid-60’s), so I shaved my legs and went for it.
On Friday, I spent some time at James Perse trying on a few new things I’ve had my eye on. I didn’t leave with anything, but added a few things to my wish list for Spring:
I tried these on in size 2, they’re not very drapey on me, with my thicker legs, but man….they were sooo soft and comfortable.
This isn’t a true wrap dress, but it was so beautiful, and flattering. It was sort of hard for me to determine where the waist should be on me, and I cinched it up a bit so it didn’t hit me at mid-thigh, but the top is INSANELY flattering. I tried on the size 2, but might want to size up.
So good. So soft, and I love the longer sleeves. I tried on the size 3, which fit me like the model, slightly slouchy, but not too oversized. Just right.
SO GOOD!!!! The curved hem is really flattering, if just a teeny bit short on me in the size 2. The sleeves are really great, and the fleece is incredibly soft. Different than the heavier 3/4 sleeve sweatshirt dress, at least my older version, though. Better, I think.
I might break my “no stripes” rule for this, because after trying it on, I’m obsessed with it. It comes to my knees in the size 2, but the cut is slim enough that it doesn’t overwhelm me, even being so long. I can see myself wearing this with everything – even dresses – in the Spring and Fall. And the stripes are subtle…
Anyway, like I said, I didn’t leave with anything, and I don’t have plans to buy anything anytime soon, but I do know I’d like a “nicer” dress (like the wrap one above) and a long cardigan for Spring, so those two things might be my first purchases. To be honest, I’m sort of itching to buy something new, anything!, since it’s been a while (for me), but it’s also not that hard to resist, given that I’m happy with my wardrobe right now. For this weather, anyway. The warm weekend got me thinking about new stuff though…doesn’t it always??
See anything you love at James Perse for spring??
