Pants are the Campbell capri pant in stretch cotton from 2014 (A2709, 8P, black). I haven’t tried the new Campbell capris , so I don’t know if they’re an improved version. Shoes are the patent loafers (B4928) from last year, 2014. Try Ebay for the patent loafers.
Back to the sweater. I usually dislike exposed zippers, but I like this one. It’s fully committed, running the length of the sweater. Itt’s not necessary to unzip it a lot to get the sweater on. Beautiful blue color with a purple tint in it. For size reference I’m 5’0″, 34DD.
Left pic= close-up, but the design element I’m trying to share isn’t coming thru. It’s very subtle and I had to look at the sweater a few times to be sure of my eyes. It’s barely discernible, yet you see it.
Right pic = sleeve length. Also, you can see the stripe design down the front center of the sweater.
I’m wearing the sparkle link necklace and Loft moto cords (sz 28/6). I could’ve walked right out the door in this look. I’m happy to report that I’m losing weight. I’ve lost 5 lbs in about a month. 3 lbs have been lost in 2 wks due to my anti-inflammatory diet. It’s crazy how much stuff I’m not supposed to eat, per my doctor. The biggest culprits I’ve removed are carbs & gluten and red meat.
Here’s the back-zip sweater with the foil dot perfect shirt, which I reviewed in this post (– thumbsup!) I might wear the bracelet with the sweater, but not sold on the necklace with it. It all harmonizes, though.
The stripe tee on the cover of the Nov 2015 catalog is a sold out Saint James tee (left pic). That’s the Rhodes blazer in houndstooth (now $189.99). If you want to search for a previous season’s houndstooth blazer, like the schoolboy, try Ebay.
If you like the grey/black houndstooth, see the Factory herringbone blazer.
Thank you to silver_lining, who posted the much lower priced boatneck t-shirt in multi-color stripe ($39.50) on her Instagram.
