Today's Shopping Trip: Wren Stills

I visited both the Irvine and Newport stores today. I was hoping the Irvine store had some better patterns in the Unicorn Tears CRB but they didn't. Both stores are still unpacking boxes. They had a bunch of the latest stuff - the newest Swiftlys, all the Downtime Jacket colors, and Wren Stills. The Clarity Gray/Lilac Swiftly is so pretty. It's the one with the oatmeal colored body and pink sleeves - just gorgeous. The Irvine store had a few nice markdowns - the Willpower Pullovers were marked down to $79. They had one white Outward Bound jacket in size 10 for $118 that I was tempted to get. They also had a Static Sprinkler Blue Pacesetter Longsleeve in size 4 on markdown that some one must have ordered during the 15 minutes it showed up on the website and returned. Both stores had Dance Studio Crops in black. I tried them on but I already bought the Wren and I want to see how much I like them first before I commit to another pair.

When I tried on the Wren In Stride Jacket yesterday, I thought the green was too gray and not green enough but I wore my Coal Still pants to the store today so I could compare. The above photo is a comparison of Wren (left) and Coal (right). The Wren pants are obviously green and I really liked how they looked with the black top I was wearing. I'm a big fan of khaki green pants anyway so this wasn't a hard sell for me. I like Wren much better as a bottom for me rather than in the tops where it's against my skin. It just washes me out too much. I have a lot of orange tops so I'll have a lot to wear with the Wren. I just need a jacket that goes with the green pants. Hmmm....

I'm really hoping the Wren stills get uploaded tomorrow. I bought (and promptly returned) the Wren In Stride. I bought it to wear with my Wren DSPs and also in anticipation of Wren stills but oh, how awful it washed me out. Love Wren with black and also with the violaceous. I practically live in stills day-to-day so I'm crossing my fingers for them to upload!

What are the other colors in the down time jacket?

The only other color I saw in the Downtime was solid black. The two I have photos of are Sprinkler Ikat and the Silver Stripe.

Oh my goodness! I would LOVE to have that LS Swiftly in sprinkler blue size 4 on markdown! I need a friend in Irvine! If anyone lives in that area, I would be happy to include a gift card to Starbucks or store of your choice as a thank you! My email is tcolesg@gmail.com. Thanks for considering helping me out!

@ anon 3:37pm - I wear a size 8 in WU's and I wear a size 6 in the Stills. I could probably have gotten away with the size 4 as well... but I didn't want it too tight. Hope that helps:)
