Peachy Pairings (plus favorite pieces back in stock)

This versatile white skirt makes an appearance yet again! You might remember it from this post paired with an off-shoulder top, here with a ruffled one, or here simply with a striped tee. My pink floral blouse drapes fluidly, and is versatile for layering under blazers or tucking into skirts / pants without unsightly lumps. The fit is on the blousier side, and I’ve rolled up the sleeves since they’re a little long on me. Swap out the sandals in my outfit here for pumps, and it’d be an elegant work-appropriate spring look.

Speaking of shoes, Ann Taylor just restocked some of their most popular ones! Small sizes are back in my block-heeled sandals and suede pumps, both of which have been wardrobe workhorses! I’ve been wearing these sandals for over a year now, and you can see the Felipa pumps styled on me herehere, and here just to name a few. Other restocks include their highly-reviewed heeled sandals pictured below, perfect for outfits that need a little leg-lengthening magic. I tried on both the cross-strap and single strap styles, and confirmed the “aged copper” color is the same shade as my super flattering older pair (see those on me). Both were equally true to size and comfy, although the cross straps felt like they’d be more forgiving on wider feet.

 

I also wanted to share this little tweed jacket that I tried on:

This jacket and matching skirt have been around for a while – given the current sale prices, I’m shocked that both are still available starting in 00 petite! Really, when was the last time you saw a quality tweed jacket for under $50 and coordinating suit skirt for $24? These would most certainly be in my closet already, if I didn’t own very similar pieces from years ago. The stock photos don’t do either item justice, as the material looks prettier and more expensive closer up. Just add a brooch or pearl necklace to channel your inner Coco.

In person, the tweed is a blend of soft pastel shades including pink, gray, navy, and ivory, and has a good weight to it plus a lining. The cut of the jacket is straight along the sides and slightly cropped, and fits better on me than most other AT jackets. The skirt will probably require waist alterations on someone my size (like with all my AT pencil skirts), but the sale price makes up for that. I’m wearing an older tweed skirt in the outfit below, and would highly recommend their current one as an alternative.

I can’t get enough of soft peach-pink this season! It looks soft and feminine paired with shades of gray, blue, or just a clean and fresh white.

Sorry for the low quality snap from Instagram, but I wanted to show this pretty skirt again with a more feminine top instead of a blazer! Read my review here on the fit and sizing. My knit ruffle top is also included in the 40% off sale (see it styled with a pencil skirt) – I wear it so much, I’ve been tempted to get it in white or black as well!

    I completely agree! It's pretty hit or miss ordering from the Asian retailers. I do love that CHicwish's team has been very receptive to adding xxs and shorter lengths for select items, so I hope they will do more.

  3. How long is your Uniqlo skirt? There are two lengths available for that skirt at Uniqlo Japan, and I don't know which one to get.

    I have purchased several items from chicwish and I agree with your review. The shipping takes a few days longer than stated on the website but the quality is better than what I expected. Although return is not free compared with other large online shop, the item price is quite reasonable. I hope they could have a larger selection of petite size as most petite size in US retail sites do not fit me very well. I have purchased some similar styles from other Chinese sites at a lower price but what I got is just a bunch of trash. Do not expect you could get a $50 quality top at $20 or less when you are shopping online.
