My final items that I had to order during my presale appointments arrived today. I posted initially on what I brought home, but didn't have any outfit photos. I was inspired to try my other K/R pieces this afternoon with today's arrivals. Here are the original posts, for reference.

I'd like to share my views on a few items, for your shopping consideration and also to solicit your feedback in some cases.

#1 How much do I love the burgundy Autumn Cashmere high low sweater? A lot! It has zipper sides, elbow patches and feels like a dream. Keep? Check! Worn over my "up for consideration" Irving stretch brown wool trousers. I told myself, "do you really need these, and can you really make an outfit or 3 with them?" Well, here's one...and I think they may be flattering?

#2 The Lafayette reed cloth, leather collar jacket. It has multicolor thread, including a gold and burgundy metallic that makes it look kind of matronly to me. The only plus is the leather collar. I think it fits OK considering my chest and shoulder challenges, but it may be too long for my frame AND it makes me feel old, not hip. Thoughts? The model can pull it off, but meh...also worn over the Irving slacks.

#3 The Irving slacks, styled 3 ways. The BCBG jacket is soooooo good, you must see to believe. It's still in the BCBG stores, as it was a Summer arrival. Anyway, back to NAS. The reversible silk Lafayette tank is another meh, and for $150, I feel like I could do better.

#4 Sharan (Firecracker) is responsible for this beauty (high five sista!). The Halogen high/low cashmere tunic in purple magenta is gorge! Worn over my older SFAM skinnies and with the sweater's shipping companion, the Pikolino 'Bruja' booties. All I can say is, the wait is over. For high volume feet that need a little heel, cushioned footbed and leather like butta, these are the ticket! Worn without socks, they feel like slippers.

Black Okalas in wide width are not NAS, but are super duper comfy. Other NAS purchase updates: Michael Kors belt comes in white, black and brown and is really nice quality, perfect width and smooth and easy buckle. The other purchases will show up in future WIWs, but if you have questions about anything, feel free to ping me. HAPPY NAS'ing for those of you who start tonight!
