Looking Forward!

Hi Everyone!

My PS sent me pictures of two forthcoming skirts. The first one is the no. 2 pencil skirt in double-serge wool in neon azalea.

I LOVE this color. I missed out on the bella jacket in this color. I can’t wait until this skirt is released!!!

The second skirt is the no. 2 pencil skirt in royal paisley. This is the same pattern as the recently released paisley perfect shirt. I have the shirt; I adore this print. This skirt is a must!

What do you think of these skirts? Do tell!

    Oh my, that azalea skirt is amazing! I don't know if I want the skirt or the shirt in paisley.BTW – the hacking jacket looks horrible on me – the color is too orange for my skin. Sadly it's a return for me.

    A, I agree, I am loving the azalea skirt!!! I have the paisley shirt, and I really like it. The colors are simply beautiful. Oh no about the hacking jacket. Fingers crossed that you will find a great jacket you love!

    Boo, I just snagged the next catalog from my PS at the store this morning, and that color isn't in this rollout. Dying for it!

    Boo is right, shopwithm! I think my online PS said it will be available in early November. The paisley skirt will be available this Thursday, I think.

    OMG! Azalea is absolutely, positively my favorite J.Crew color EVAH! So excited to see it in one of the pencil skirts. I think that both of these skirts will be mine.

    I have never used a PS before, but this tipped me over into making the call, and I pre-ordered both skirts, eek! She gave me the Nov. 7 date for the azalea, but said Oct. 25 for the paisley. She also said the paisley print would be available in other items in addition to the shirt. Love JC prints!

    I just ordered the paisley skirt this morning. I asked for measurements on it and it runs exactly the same as the wool version. I want the Talia blouse in the same color. Is that too much?I want 2 pairs of cords, a pair of mona's and a coat. The Fall roll out is killing me:)Did you get the skirt?

    A!!! I ordered the paisley skirt this morning too!!! I want the Talia paisley print shirt too!! I should note that I bought the perfect shirt in the paisley print. And, I don't think that your wish list is too much. Wait until she see mine! I'm working on a "What I'm Loving" post now. Did you see the new tweed skirt?

    I guess I'm not a paisley fan because all the talk in the world about that skirt has not spiked my crewlade. I love that neon azalea color & can't wait to see it on you. Do share!

    Gigi!! LOL about spiking your crewlade!!! I didn't like paisley at first, and I'm not sure what changed my mind about the pattern. I cannot wait to get the Neon Azalea skirt!!! I will post a pic immediately!

    Thanks for these preview pics. I am crazy for paisley, and this purple color way is my favorite so far. I have already picked up the skirt, shirt, scarf, talia top, and iPhone cover. Invervention please!The double serge skirt looks appealing too. Can't wait to see it on you.

    Cleo: I squealed when I saw these pics initially! I need an intervention on pencil skirts, so I hear you!!! I can't wait to get my hands on the double serge skirt in neon Azalea. I will post pics immediately! Thanks for being here!
