I don’t have to tell you again how much I love James Perse do I? I mean, I will…but I’m sure you know by now. I tried this pencil skirt on before, but wasn’t able to get it (got a Target pencil skirt instead) until now with the Saks friends & family coupon (and thanks also to my generous husband). I put it on and instantly knew I was going to leave with it. Maybe it’s just me, but I looked in the mirror and was all: “whoa who’s that?” for a second. I got a size 3 so it’s a bit snug, but in a good way, and not as long as the size 4 was on me. You can basically scrunch it up as much as you want to make it shorter, which is what I did, because it’s calf-length if it’s fully “extended”. But the ruching is SO flattering, it’s crazy. I’m sure I’ll wear this all the time; in every season. And I will definitely dry clean it (at home) instead of put it in the washing machine. I’m afraid it will end up too twisted if I don’t.
I’ve definitely got my money’s worth on this James Perse sweatshirt also, although it’s really too big on me now, but I love how it drapes and balances out the slim skirt. I’m going to look for something similar but smaller to replace it, perhaps this James Perse top will be “it”? It’s been in my cart at Shopbop since yesterday…What have you guys bought at Shopbop?? It’s the last day for the 20% off!!!
Oh, and my hair is done – I’m very happy with it now and think it will grow out beautifully. I’ve yet to get it colored, so I’m letting my grays be my “highlights” for now, but I’m trying to decide if I should go darker or lighter this time.
