Note: I have no time to style these items beyond putting on a pair of jeans and going to the better lot mirror in my building. I am leaving on a jet plane at 6:30 tomorrow morning.

The good, the bad and the maybe:

GOOD: 1.State blazer. If it weren’t 80° out, I would wear this out somewhere tonight. Love. Really a wildcard for me because I haven’t been wearing enough blazers lately, as the season is so short for them. But I have a few enough blazers that I can make room for one that I absolutely love, and that’s completely different than anything I have. It will work as a fall jacket too.

BAD: Pokolinos booties - I didn’t snap any photos because they’ve been pretty well covered on here and I packed them up immediately to send out this evening. Even on the smaller of my feet, my regular Euro size was too tight - even without socks on. Surprised and disappointed. It looks like the size up is available and I may be trying that. ETA - since I believe that one size up will work, I reordered. These almost fit but wouldn’t have been comfortable.

Maybe: Bernardo coat. First of all, the quality on this coat is stunning, especially for the NAS price The fabric is yummy. I have my usual problem though that it just barely fits on the hips and is too big on top. Course, I have that problem with almost every coat, and at least this one fits on the hips— if I have to compromise, I’d rather it be on the fit up top because then at least I can wear a big sweater underneath. The sleeves are long. Long sleeves are good on a coat, but These may be too long. I’d be OK with doing that alteration. I want your opinions before deciding, and I’m OK with the fact that I probably won’t make a final decision until I return from my vacation. ( unlike the booties, this is a straight yes or no rather than a rush to re-order the right size.) ETA - leaning towards returning when I come back in August.

Bonus - I was able to order the Treasure & Bond purse as a pop back. It won’t arrive until I’m gone though.
