(yes, you’ve seen this before)
James Perse added a few new items to the sale last night, including this dress (which now seems to be sold out in black, but still available in “marjoram”) which I’ve had for a month or so. I’ve worn this dress several times – it’s my go-to for date night with my husband (he likes it!) – and as an easy piece to throw on and layer (or not) with a lightweight sweater. Honestly, the belt is a little strange, and I wish it was just ruched instead of belted, but I think it adds an interesting touch, and it doesn’t bother me at all; it just seems to pull a bit at the sides.
I tried this dress on many months ago when it first came out, and liked it a lot; I tried on a size 3 because the fleece tends to run a bit smaller. It’s a great basic, easy, dress, but not something I really needed, so I decided to pass on it.
Also new to the sale is a linen/cotton utility jacket for $249. I haven’t seen this on person, but it looks like a nice, lightweight utility (very practical) jacket for cooler, slightly warm weather. Great if you live in a very moderate climate and only ever need a lightweight layer. Otherwise, maybe only good for a couple months out of the year.
Thankfully I wasn’t compelled to place a second order with these new additions (I’ve been known to do that…), but with the free shipping code (GRCHNFIREWRKS) it’s still a great time to buy if anything has caught your eye. And don’t forget about the new fall items (this please!!!). The free shipping code is valid on them too!
If you haven’t already, please visit my James Perse summer sale review post to see what I bought on sale and my thoughts on it + reader feedback on fit & swap/items for sale.
And finally, I know many of you have already left your input on specific items, but I’d love your feedback on the sale in general. What are your thoughts on the selection? Final sale (I know that’s an issue!!), anything else?? Lots of you have shopped these sales with me for years, do you purchase more or less lately? why or why not? What can I do better in my partnership with James Perse during sale periods? Any feedback helps! Thank you 🙂
