Given that the cool season is quickly approaching, here's a quick post with a couple of coats I tried on during my latest trip South. I do not recall seeing these a few weeks back when I visited. First, here's the Double-cloth Townhouse Trench Coat in heather caramel and size 4. This size has been my usual size in JC coats and jackets, except for the Double-cloth Envelope Coat, in which I sized down. The colour is a true caramel colour. I also found a pair of the Cece Studded Ballet Flats in my size 8 and cognac colour. They fit well lengthwise, but after a short while I had to take them off, as they didn't feelt comfortable. I guess ballet flats is something I will never be able to wear.
The other coat that was new and had not tried before was the Excursion Quilted Jacket in size S and black colour. There was also an Excursion Quilted Vest, but I didn't try it on. I was surprised to notice that the jacket didn't have any belt loops on the front. The buckle did not hold the belt properly on, so I resorted to tying it in the end (second pic). It is also quite thin, so it's not a winter jacket by any means, even if it's filled with down.
The store was relatively empty, but they did receive the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Metallic Boucle since the last visit. I didn't try it on since I also received this the day before, so I will be posting a Polyvore photo soon, probably. The skirt fits like the regular pencil skirts from J. Crew.
I will review the rest of the items I tried on in the next couple of days, hopefully. I did not go home empty-handed, though.
Hallowe'en is quickly approaching. Are you celebrating? This is the most I might do:
Have a great start of the week, everyone!
