This is nearly my favorite outfit ever. I wish I could wear a version of it every day. I probably could, if it was warm enough. But I guess I like variation every once in a while; jeans, leggings, skirts…Anyway, I highly recommend Splendid’s thermal pieces; I tend to live in them when it’s colder. I swear they’re warmer, but that could be my imagination. Maybe it’s just that I love the texture?
I saw Margot (she designed the necklace I’m wearing) last night at a party for MOSS Designer consignment (it was their 3rd birthday party – time flies!!) and she mentioned that she’s sold two of these necklaces to you guys! I can’t tell you how happy it made me – and her – to know that I did a little to support her jewelry designs. She makes truly beautiful pieces and is working on trying to expand a little, and hopefully I’ll be able to add more of her designs to my collection. Thank you guys SO MUCH for supporting the designers I write about; it really does make a difference.
Happy Thursday 🙂 I’m still packing….
If I saw you while I was out shopping, I’d think, “There goes a very chic, pretty woman.” (And I’d be jealous, but then I’d realize it was you and since we’ve never met in person, I’d give you a hug! 😉 )
Forgot to tell you this (I think. If I already did, just chalk it up to early onset whatever…). When my daughter and I were out shopping on Sat., we stopped at TJ Maxx and they had the James Perse long-sleeve cowl-ish top that you love so much, but in a beigey sort of color, for only $49!!! I almost bought it for you, but I know you’re not really into beige. And it was a size 3. Or I would have bought it, even though I’m not into beige.

haha! i think i might have bought that one and returned it 🙁 i went to marshall’s because RJS is always saying she finds good things there, and i definitely did! spent $180 on three things that were so amazing, and i would probably never have bought if i hadn’t been able to try them on. then i returned everything, because i did NOT need to be spending that much $$ right now. the top i got was sort of beige-y, but it looked great on me (the color) – again, i never would have bought it if i hadn’t tried it on, but i really liked it…
MV, those are the two tops that I bought last week, and for the same price/size 3. Although JP runs large sometimes, I like a loose fit. You could call the color beige, but it’s one of my favorite neutral tones. The cowl looks great under a sweater, too. Grechen, I love being right about retail:). I also have returned quite a few items. Call it either buyer’s remorse or blowing my budget.
I love maxi dresses but never think to wear them in the winter?! This looks super cosy, I must give it a try!! I’ve just popped over to Margo’s website and am now very much in love with the chevron pieces…maybe after Christmas 😉
I have never seen JP at our TJ Maxx before, so I was surprised. Probably because there’s a stand alone JP store in town. But I LOVED the top, I just wish they had it in black. I may keep stalking the store and see if one shows up.
I hear ya’ about the return thing…I’m a chronic returner because I never want to try things on in the store. (All of those buttons…I never dress correctly for shopping…too hot…dressing room lighting…YUK!). And don’t get me wrong, RJS, I have nothing against beige…just for me. I look too washed-out in the color. I need something veering toward camel. Even then, I require more blush and lip color! Glad you’re finding deals!
MV, I wanted to clarify regarding your beige comment. Unless, it’s two different colors that we’re talking about, my tops look taupe to me. I suppose, though, that “beige is in the eyes of the beholder.” I think that beige has a bad name for a reason. Beige can be boring, unless, it has a hint of warmth. I’ve also seen that particular top in a very dark charcoal grey, so keep on looking. It’s almost a black. I’m wearing the top today. It’s cozy under a cashmere sweater!
Grechen Reiter says
this is the top, right? this is the one i bought and returned at marshall’s – the color is really nice in person.
I looked up the top, RJS and Grechen, and it’s definitely NOT the taupe. I love taupe, and wear it myself, quite often. No, this was really…BEIGE. A kind of washed-out, non-descript shade that I have never seen before on the JP website. Not sure where it came from (there wasn’t an identifying previous store tag).
Yes. That’s the top in taupe. I’ve been wearing one for three days in a row. Good thing that I bought two.
