Things I bought, things I want

19

Just a couple of purchases for my little spa respite, starting with this Outdoor Voices tee, which is in the best heathered blue.

These Nike leggings are super high-waisted, which is a new thing I like leggings to be, and made of a supremely breathable fabric.

Meanwhile, Everlane is now offering their excellent (and well-priced) chore jacket in corduroy, and though it comes in a few other more classic hues, I’m loving this golden mustard yellow (which I think is nicely unexpected but still pretty versatile too).

I really really really want one of Sandy Liang’s supercool fleeces, pricey though they are.

I am not suggesting that anyone actually buy this leopard liner jacket, which is just stupidly pricey, but I would like you to admire it, and join me in hoping that some more inexpensive brand knocks it off.

Also from Everlane: this extremely sharp snakeskin-embossed boot looks like it costs more than it does, and has a very walkable heel.

From the Ines de la Fressange collection over at Uniqlo: a cozy cardigan sweater that looks so excellently Euro-preppy.

I’ve been looking for a new-favorite classic pair of blue jeans with just a tiny bit of stretch—but that look like they don’t have stretch— and these may be them.

    I ordered those CofH jeans as soon as I read your post. They are fabulous. I styled them “up” with a cuff and heels last night. I’m certain they’ll end up being my favorite jeans this fall.

    I ordered that Outdoor Voices t-shirt (the fabric does feel dreamy) but found their sizing to be really wonky. I used their size chart but in reality the XL tank was too small and XL t-shirt was too big. Alas!

    Long time lurker here. I have the CoH jeans. I doesn’t really have stretch but it does relax after after few hours. I size down from my usual size of 26 to 24 because I prefer the look shown on the model. If you prefer a baggier style, then just stay TTS.

    The CoH jeans are SO good, and exactly what I always seem to be searching for : That cut, that length, that wash. Perfection!

      P.S. I just found this post when I was searching for an old post. I didn’t receive it in my email today.

    That Everlane corduroy chore jacket is pretty wonderful. I received my Everlane denim shirt you posted about, Kim (am wearing it as I type) and I love it so much I will probably order another to have on tap. Also, received my Easy Spirit boots and they are wear right of out of the box comfortable. In short, I am DELIGHTED with my purchases!! Now if I just had that chore jacket…

      I am so slow in commenting, but I just want to say I’m digging how much you’re digging your denim shirt. Finding a good shirt always feels like a victory to me. So, thanks for the woman-with-a-good-shirt happiness vibes you’re sharing.

    I’m wanting the jeans. I’ve owned Emersons before and used to go down a full two sizes. But now I go down only a size as I think you lose the slouch factor if you go too slim. I seem to be really wanting the slouch factor and even size up on occasion! Even the slightest bit of muffin top is offending me so I’m wearing jeans on the looser side.

    I am trying to figure out how to type this without reading like a crotchety old fill-in-the-blank but how does a fabric jacket made in China command a price tag of near 1000.00?

      Often when clothing items are priced like that, the manufacturer also designed and produced the fabric and/or hardware specifically for their own use, they aren’t buying from textile/notions houses that everyone else uses. But I don’t know for sure.

      I think by using a really good fake fur.

      I don’t see how it is a “fleece” though, as there is no fleece. I guess they just mean the styling. Odd that that is a selling point now. I would rather just have the fake fur, if it’s me…

    I own those CofH jeans (in one size down from my usual), and they are as perfect as they look.

    I love your sense of humor regarding that “stupidly pricey” jacket!

    I tried on those Nike leggings in their 5th Ave store last week…totally see-through (even when I sized up)! A bit too breathable for me 🙂
