The rest of the NAS stuff I originally ordered arrived. (First round is here.) This batch turned out to be really heavy on the black, but, to be fair, so is my wardrobe. Onto the stuff!

First is this Kensie dress, which I really love. The picture doesn't really show it as well as the website does, but the cut is very distinctive and kind of has an Allsaints-lite feel. There's a nice cowl neckline and, even better, this cool, drapey, swingy, hip-hiding pocket detail on the skirt. I think this will be a good dress for throwing on and instantly looking put-together in colder weather.

Next is an oversized striped t-shirt I threw in because it looked like fun. I don't really have any other tees that are truly oversized and I'm really enjoying the breeziness and the hi-lo hemline.

Third is an oversized cardigan in a lace/brocade pattern that combines black with a warm neutral. Like I was going to pass up that one. Part of me likes it a lot, while part of me wonders if it looks a little like a giant grandma cardigan. Since it's pretty inexpensive, it's certainly something I could break out every once in a while (maybe over something sleek and black) without it having to be the most-worn or most versatile thing ever.

Fourth is a black/gray tweedy jacket because I apparently haven't learned my lesson. I'm showing it both open and closed, although I'd mostly wear it open. Did I finally find a non-cardigan topper that actually works on me?

Finally, I'm wearing the Louise et Cie black flats in all these pictures and decided to keep. In fact, I'm wearing them today. They're really comfy and cushiony and will be a nice replacement for my black d'orsay flats that somehow got worn out in only 2 months.

I was also really curious about the Halogen boiled wool coat, which they didn't have in my store, so I ordered it in two sizes, one in purple and one in gray. But, other than that, this is probably it for NAS for me. Well, I also got a robe and a running top. And a running/gear jacket which I'm not 100% sure I'm keeping. But those don't really count, right?
