Although I'm still in denial that it's already September, I do have some fun new fall fashion items from JustFab that I wanted to share with all of you before they sell out. I got to pick out a couple new pieces courtesy of the brand, and while I haven't had a chance to wear everything just yet (still too hot out for the jacket and boots), I'm already in love with my reversible vegan leather tote bag and white zipper-detail blouse. Apologies for the awful image quality, next time I will try to take photos in the afternoon when there's more light in my bedroom! Read on for my review...
Zipper pocket tunic top, VIP price $39.95
White isn't the most practical color to wear when you're a mom but it's endlessly versatile and easy to style, so I grabbed this top in a size large so it would fit my bump, and it does! It's 100% polyester and somewhat sheer, as you can see, so you'd need to layer this over a cami. I like that it doesn't wrinkle and looks crisp and polished. You could tuck it into a skirt or layer over skinnies. I'd have to see how it holds up in the wash but so far it's proving to be a decent top for the price.
Tweed Jacket, VIP price $44.95
This "preppy cool" look is what sold me on this tweed jacket, which I ordered in a size large but received a size small instead - and it's a good thing, because it runs big. You can't go wrong with a chic tweed jacket for fall, and this one looks modern and updated. It's also got some stretch to the fabric which is really nice. I'm not sure if it's worth $45, you could probably find something similar elsewhere for a bit less, but overall it's a solid jacket that I can see myself wearing a lot. Unfortunately I'm seeing it's sold out now but you can shop other JustFab jackets here.
Ace reversible vegan leather tote, VIP price $39.95 (available in 5 color combos)
I've been wanting a reversible tote bag in this style for months and months but never got one because I wasn't sure if it would be practical with a toddler. Lately I keep all my gear in the car and only carry essentials in a small crossbody bag. But I've been using the Ace for the past week or so and it's surprisingly versatile. First of all, I love the look - I held it up to my genuine leather Banana Republic leather tote and the texture and look is almost identical. You might think it looks plastic-y or you might think it looks exactly like real leather based on other bags you own. Secondly, I love the size. It holds a lot but it's not a bottomless pit. Finally, the straps are very comfortable and the little inner wallet is convenient for keys and cards. I think this bag would be perfect for work and the weekend.
Meredy boots, VIP price $39.95
I've had really good luck with JustFab boots in the past, so I was eager to try the Meredy. Since they only come in whole sizes 9, 10 and 11, I went with the 10 and they fit great (normally a 9.5 but lately I've been needing to size up - thank you two pregnancies!) I like the slouchy fit and wood heel, they have a relaxed, almost-boho vibe that's good for everyday. I'm not going to lie, these boots don't look expensive, but they're comfortable and I know I can wear them to the park or on walks without worrying whether I get them dirty or wet or what not. These would be great for wide calves, too, as there's a stretch panel on the back and the overall fit is loose.
Oversized shirt, $39.95
A plain white shirt can be super sexy, amiright? This one, however, was not. I got a size large to accommodate my bump but it just wasn't working. That's not the say this shirt wouldn't work for you, but it was hard for me to envision how it would look post-baby. This shirt is super starchy 100% cotton. I love the longer length because at 5'8" I can never find tops that are long enough, and when I size up they end up being too wide in the bust/shoulder area. The sleeves could be longer on this shirt. I think everyone needs a shirt like this in their closet but I'm not sure this was the one for me.
So that's a look at some of the JustFab pieces I've tried this fall. Overall I'm happiest with the bag and the boots and will continue to scope out their clothing options for unique pieces, like this faux leather tee and this plaid fringe cape. Are you a JustFab fan?
