a.p.c. madras fall collection





i literally squeaked with delight when i saw this in my inbox. i want basically everything. you should check it out for yourself, since i'm having a hard time capturing the images.

i really want to save money for paris and mayle, but i think i'm going to have order one or two things right this minute....

AND, the dollar seems to be doing better against the euro! so, paris shopping is looking good!

i just ordered the gradient dress, plaid top (not the dress), and a shirt for matthew. we'll see how it goes!

Joanna Goddard said...

erica said...

APC can just do no wrong. Just so perfect.

you know, i'm sorry (for myself) to say that apc is losing it's appeal for me. i have a jacket from them that is heaven (i think their outerwear is really incredibly strong), but beyond that, their cut is too boxy for me. maybe my mood will change. in the meantime, it saves me money. :D

erica said...

i agree, their outerwear is nearly always perfect, but some of their dresses have fit me oddly as of late.

i'm hoping at least one of the two things i ordered for myself will fit.

Moya said...

APC rarely fits me. I am too tall and get that boxy look, and not always in a flattering way. I wish it worked better.

I was super excited when I saw
the madras collection too. I ordered the plaid coat. I can't wait!

Erica! How does the Madras stuff fit? I love, love the gradient dress but I'm going back and forth wondering which size to order...when you get your dress, think you could let me know? If it's more tent-like I'll order down, but if it's more fitted I'll order up...

Cheers!

amelia-
so i returned the plaid top (it fit way too boxy and short in the torso, and i'm not just saying that because of the belly), but matthew loved his military button down, and the gradient dress (S) fit perfectly. it isn't too tent-like because the shoulders are pretty narrow. you'd probably be better off sizing down instead of up.

thanks so much for the tips!
