Okay…caveat: I am not wearing exactly this today. I am wearing the dress and sneakers, but I don’t need the cardigan, and anyway, it’s too much color for me with the cardigan AND the sneakers AND the blue dress. Whoa. I just wanted to show you some of my favorite things that are up to 25% off at Shopbop right now. All together LOL…
My James Perse dress is not black, and I wish it was, although not enough to buy the black one. I can’t tell if I would wear it more if it was black? or if I just wouldn’t wear it enough period. I love it, and think I might wear it more often if it was black, but I don’t know. Anyway, they’re sold out of the size 2 in this dress. I might be able to get away with the size 1, but I’m not sure. I’m still pretty happy with how the size 2 fits. It’s just blue. And I don’t wear blue very often. You guys are probably saying to yourself WTF?? WEAR THE DRESS?? Anyway, it’s hard to tell that it’s blue it’s so dark.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sneakers, even in this “snake” print, although I do wish they were black sometimes too. Or all white. The print is neutral enough that I wear them with everything anyway, but I cannot bring myself to wear them and also this sweater, which is a color and a print, sort of. The “new” version of this sneaker is very cool with the cutouts, and also neutral. I am generally a size 8 US and take a 38.5 in Robert Clergerie and they almost always fit perfectly. I have an insert in these because I found the inside of the shoe slippery and also maybe a teeny bit big, but not a full half size.
And now the cardigan. I am so glad I got this cardigan a while ago. I’ve worn it a ton, but now, thankfully, it’s warming up enough that it’s a little too heavy/hot. The detailing on this sweater is gorgeous and the color is beautiful. Of course, it looks pink from far away, but it’s actually quite nuanced, with seafoam, and cream threads knit throughout. What I like the most about it though is the straight, “fitted” style on me. I am moving a bit away from oversized, and really drapey/flowing pieces, and this one is perfect for that. And yes, I can button it up all the way, but I never would IRL.
I haven’t ordered anything from Shopbop with this code yet, but I have quite a few things on my wishlist:
Vince wrap waist dress (ugh, I love this in black…so intrigued)
Adidas by Stella McCartney Parley Ultraboost sneakers (made from recycled ocean plastic)
James Perse low v wrap dress (sigh)
Have you ordered anything? Interested in anything? Questions about James Perse?? I always love to talk about James Perse…. 🙂
