No. 2 Double Serge Pencil Skirt in wool -- Viridian Green is gorgeous!!! The color is to die for and IMO is the best piece of fall that I've seen so far. Yes, it's lined! (lol, there was a lot of hoopla about the lining, and in the end, thank goodness, it worked out.) It's a lovely cool greenish peacock color that I'm in love with completely. It's not quite green and it's not quite turquoise, but works with both of those colors. The fit is TTS compared to last year's wool pencil (I took a 4). My PS said the viridian green is going to be a hard color to get. Like ochre in store last year (at least in our area), it's flying off shelves/online. My store said the waiting list for the next batch is almost filled. But we'll see, could easily be just a gambit to make everyone pay FP. ha.
I've taken pictures with various pieces (Casbah blouse, Anthro's A-bit-unruly top, Sun-drenched Sweatshirt, Leslie Lace Shell, Boy Shirt in Quincy Tartan -- all of which look great with it!), and also laid it out with some different shoes, scarves, sweaters in greens and turquoise, so you can kind of see the shade of it better.
Love the Boy Shirt in Quincy Tartan -- the colors are vibrant and beautiful. Love, love, love. I went with a 4 (my usual).
Wool Flannel Schoolboy Blazer -- I tried both the Decadent Red (not in stores yet) and Heather Caramel, which is in store. The red is definitely more red than the orange/cerise I originally imagined it to be, but that's not a bad thing. I think it's a really striking color and that's the best thing about it. I also love the camel color (and will share pictures shortly -- I just got soooo hot trying stuff on). However, all that being said, it definitely doesn't feel nearly as luxe and thick as it should for $188. I mean, I can see that it will likely wrinkle, which is just...urgh. I drive around all-the-live-long day, and I'd be pissed if this jacket is a hot mess in the back when I get out of the car. The same I'm sure would go for those of you sitting at desks.
Pros: lovely color, fitted schoolboy cut (although it might be too short for some torsos), gold buttons. Cons: wool flannel material is just lacking. Boo. So is it worth FP? I don't think the camel is and I'm on the fence about the red, only b/c it might sell out before it hits a sale. Here are a bunch of pics, wearing with just a plain white tee, and then with a cashmere tee in an orange color that would work (most of my sweaters are packed away). I also took some pics of the Factory Tortoise Cuff and Link necklace (which can be double wrapped BTW).
If I decide not to keep it, I can still somewhat recreate that gorgeous catalog look with my Elsa Jacket, as I styled on Polyvore here:
