Before I ordered yesterday I had a number of things in and out of my cart to consider. Several I saved for later but most, like a couple of bags and some boots, I deleted and moved on. But there were a few pieces- ones that would be more of a splurge- that I kept coming back to and last night I decided that I needed to try them.

The pinstripe blouse isn't a typical style for me and the ruffles might be a bit much but I really like the shape and that it's silk. And it's not black

Also not black- a leather jacket in navy and a short sleeve silk top in a deep gray. I do have a navy jacket but it's a drapey style with strips of leather so totally different. The gray top I can wear now and in the fall.

Finally, more navy/ink from Lafayette 148. I wasn't looking for pants but I love the pattern of these. The cardigan has interesting detail and the back looks lovely. If these are like other pieces I've had from them before, the quality is very nice. Now that I decided to try the pants, I really want them to work!

I can't keep all of these plus everything from the first order so hopefully just my very favorites will be the ones that fit and feel fab!
