Damn. I sure know how to pick ’em. This pullover by James Perse was something I just added to my Shopbop order as an afterthought during Friends & Family last week, but it might be my favorite thing from the box! Maybe my favorite thing EVER! No, I can’t really choose favorites, my entire order was REALLY good, as is everything JP I own, 🙂 But this sweatshirt is AMAZING, true to what I love so much about James Perse: the fit. I got a size 2 and it fits me beautifully everywhere. The neckline is perfect, just slightly draped, but it also gives a slight boatneck look, which I really love, and think is so flattering. You know why I don’t own any of the “regular” sweatshirts by James Perse? They’re either crewneck or just slightly scooped, and I try to avoid crewneck as much as possible. This top is different than the regular JP sweatshirt because of the dolman sleeves and fitted bottom, but it’s so much better than the sweatshirt IMO. For me anyway!
So, question: I know, I’ve mentioned adding a message board here before, and I know you guys really want it, but it’s a PITA to add to the site. I was thinking about buying a new domain name and starting a dedicated James Perse “fan” site with a community already built in. Would you participate in that? I think it could also incorporate other brands we love here, but it would be primarily for all things James Perse: where to buy, reviews, discussion, etc.
For example, the top I’m wearing is the same top here, and they look completely different. I’m assuming the model sized up, and Nordstrom doesn’t list the content (mine is 100% cotton), but I’m sure it’s the same top. I’d love to have a dedicated place to post about stuff like that and discuss. What do you think?
Oh, and seriously. Get this top. Size up if you want it to look like the Nordstrom model, but take your regular size if you want it to be more fitted. I wanted fitted, especially with dolman sleeves, my waist can get lost with those!
