This James Perse dress is the only thing I kept from my Shopbop friends & family order; all the denim went back. I decided I wasn’t going to settle for “good enough” and boring. So, I’m still on the search for denim.
But the dress, though. It’s such a wonderful, effortless dress for fall. Honestly, it’s not easily layered, because of the dolman sleeves, but if pressed, I could throw my Everlane cashmere cardigan over it. More than likely, I’d wear it with a scarf and boots when it’s slightly cooler and be fine. But it’s probably not a great dress for cold cold weather.
It has pockets at the hip (yay!) which I love. Pretty much everything I buy now has to have pockets, just so I can wear it and be able to take Dagny out if I need to (I have to carry lots of supplies when I take her out!) and not change clothes.
The material is the same as my long tank dress (also with pockets) from last year which is nice and soft and mid-weight, so warm and cozy. It’s not BLACK black, more like a brushed, very very very dark charcoal, so it pairs nicely with black sweaters/jackets.
Amazing dress. Casual, but depending on the shoes, easily “dressed” up, and so easy to wear. Oh, and even though it’s long and slim at the bottom, I don’t find it difficult to walk in at all, not like other long JP dresses/skirts.
Happy Friday!! I hope you’ve had a great week. What did you keep/return from the Shopbop sale? Hopefully you had better luck than I did…
