Last weekend my partner in crime and I went to JC to check out some of the new arrivals. I saw quite a few, but didn't try very many on. The sale section was quite large and spent more time over there, especially since there was an additional 40% discount on the sale prices.
One of the items I did try on was the Surf Skirt in Cove Floral size 4. I usually wear size 4 in the flared skirts. I was surprised to see this was neoprene material, since I hadn't read the description on the website. The print is very pretty, but this skirt is definitely for the young crowd. The top is the Lightweight Merino Scalloped Sweater size S. Size down and no padded bra when wearing this one, in my opinion. It's a very light 16-gauge knit and feels fabulous against the skin. I tried on the 'navy,' but comes in four other colours as well.
The sandals are also new. They are the Back-Zip Sandals in 'warm sienna' size 8, my regular shoe size. They also come in 'black,' majestic blue' and 'california poppy' and are all leather: upper, lining and sole. The straps are almost buttery soft and feel great on.
Pleated Flare Dress in 'black' and size 6. It was a nice surprise for me, since flare dresses don't look good at all on me. The waist is also in the right place, and so is the hem (I am 5'6"). Since it has spandex in it, it is very forgiving. I would wear this with a denim jacket or a crop cardigan.
Lastly, something from the sale section: the Maya Ankle-Strap Sandals size 8 again and 'beige stone.' Upper part and lining are leather, while the sole is synthetic. As I mentioned earlier, the sale items received an additional 40% discount at the register. On sale for $129.99, final price was $78.
