Karen Walker sunglasses have been around for ages (I blogged about them almost 10 years ago!), but I still like them, particularly the tortoise ones. I’ve been wearing the Alternative Fit Super Duper Strength Sunglasses in tortoise the most lately.
shopbop has had the older styles/colors on sale for months but has slashed the prices again. Enough for me to consider a backup pair. I like that shopbop carries alternative fit which is great for the low bridge crowd. But, shopbop has the items on final sale, which I’m not a fan of. However, shopbop is owned by Amazon and Amazon carries the same items/price without the final sale…
The Uniqlo +j 2021 Fall/Winter collection dropped recently. Jil Sander was quoted saying it was the end of a chapter. Does this mean her she is stopping, for now? I totally forgot about the collection, so many styles have already sold out. I will wait for restocks (if they happen) or popbacks. As with the past collections, sizing can be all over the place.
WOMEN +J DOUBLE FACE PEACOAT – I love this. It comes in navy or olive, which are both beautiful. It is slightly oversized, so I only sized down one size. The sleeves are a little long so I folded them up and the pockets are very deep.
WOMEN +J DOWN SHORT OVERSIZED COAT – I did not like this. It runs very oversized and the diagonal pockets are very unflattering in placement. It is warm and the big hood is detachable.
(Updated) WOMEN +J DOWN VOLUME VEST – This popped back and was delivered the following day. I got the navy and sized 2 sizes down and am looking for 1 size larger to pop back. It fits and I like the style but I want to see how it would look if slightly bigger. The US reviews aren’t great, you can see styling photos on the JP site.
I haven’t seen these yet:
WOMEN +J DOWN LONG COAT – Is the brown more of an olive brown? I’m still loving the version from last year. The reviews on this are split and unless it’s on super sale, I don’t plan to check it out.
I had no idea who this designer was but stumbled upon her collection and regret not seeing it before it launched. The Fall/Winter collection is launching on Nov 26th in more neutral shades.
WOMEN AIRism COTTON RELAXED WIRELESS BRA – this is so comfortable. I grabbed a bunch, they are wireless, and they also wash really well. I found it to be TTS. They were out of my ideal size in some colors so I ended up with 2 sizes and they were both good enough under loungewear.

I’m surprised this beauty kit hasn’t sold out yet… it’s a steal if you like nicer products. I got it for the Tata Harper and Susanne Kaufmann, and I don’t mind trying the other products. It’s also available in the EU, APAC, and GB sites.
Value: $505 (based on NAP prices)
$125 Full size (smaller size) Tata Harper Concentrated Brightening Serum: 9.8 ml/0.33 fl.oz. (Previously reviewed the original formulation, the only drawback was the cost.)
$98 Full size U Beauty The Sculpt Arm Compound: 120 ml/4.0 fl.oz.
$72 Full size One Ocean Ultra Hydrating Algae Oil: 30 ml/1.0 fl.oz.
$45 Full size Susanne Kaufmann Cleansing Gel: 100 ml/ 3.4 fl.oz (The second item I was most excited about.)
$37 Full size (smaller size) Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil: 15 ml/0.5 fl.oz
$30 Full size Phillip Kingsley Swimcap Mask: 75 ml/2.5 fl.oz.
$25 Full size Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara: 9 g/0.31 oz
Maybe my favorite piece of the collection. It is intentionally oversized so you can go TTS or size down if you want a slimmer fit. Reminds me of the Nike hooded cape I used to like and have long since misplaced. I obviously got black, and blue. It also comes in white and gray, but I’m not much of a gray person.
Perfect for spring. I love the weight, the pockets, ability to cinch the waist slightly, the muted olive green shade. This is heavier weight and more sleek than the Uniqlo x Tomas Maier flight jacket. It comes in olive (pictured), black, and blue.
A great shape. It is meant to be oversized. You can size down for a tighter fit or go TTS and be able to layer. The polyester/silk material is a bit high maintenance and I think black is better for the long run.
