I wasn't planning on a JC post today but since I popped into the store to look for a gift, I also took the chance to try on a couple of items I had my heart set on as well. First was the Stretch Boucle Jacket size S. I have the spring versions of this type of jacket (see photos here - several posts), and I have to admit I like this even better. It's made of a cotton/poly mix and instead of closing with a front zipper, it has hook and eye closures.

Sleeveless Shift Dress in Stretch Wool size 6. I loved the bright colour of this dress, but the fit is not good on me. It fits across the chest, but there is too much fabric in the hip area, as it's meant for a curvier type body.
The sandals I am wearing are the Marina Mini-Wedge Espadrilles size 8, my regular shoe size. They fit comfortably on my feet. They are quite bright, as you can tell.
And as luck will have it, I was able to get my hands on a hot number: the August Style Guide! As my scanner will not communicate with my computer for some reason, I figured I would take photos of some of the pages to show you. Happy viewing! Let me know if you wish to know more details on some of these.

Of course there are lots more in the style guide. I was told the new arrivals will be in store on Monday, so am hoping to drop in again sometime next week and take a good look at the fall collection.
Is there anything you see that you are already planning on getting? If so, please share!
Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone!
