Yesterday afternoon I noticed the new arrivals were finally up on the JC site. I was pretty excited to see them, as I had high hopes for some interesting prints and cool basics. As it was my birthday and I had a 20% off code, I'd convinced myself that a small order might be a possibility.
Hmmm. Good news for my bank account. There's really not much that's my style or budget in the new arrivals. I'm not a fan of pastels - they really don't suit my colouring. Neither am I fan of lace or overly flowery prints. It seemed to me that most of the new arrivals are a combination of the above.
I was really hoping for some paisley prints or darker colours, but most things are pale or neon.
So, only a few things stood out as possibilities, but even these items are too $$, in my opinion.
First, this cardigan. I like the colours, but think it's probably a bit too thin, what is 'gauze' anyway? Also, at $102 on the Aus site, it's a bit pricey.
Next, this shirt. It's distinctly Isabel Marant-ish. Perhaps a bit girly and unstructured for me too. Indigo Floral Popover:
Jewelled sweatshirt. Looks interesting. Really doubt I'd wear it much.
Raffia Stripe pencil skirt. Love this, but doesn't come in Petite sizes, and is a staggering $317!!! I'd want it to cook me dinner for that price!
Finally, this deeply impractical cashmere sweater. For some reason, I reckon this would get worn a fair bit. It's almost neon, if the picture is true to life, and it's really rather garish, but I want this. But not for $335. Really hoping this will be on sale soon. Surely very few people want a day-glo sweater?
