Have you started thinking about your wardrobe for the holiday season now that its upon us? I know that I need a few outfits for family get-togethers and a friend’s holiday party. I really would love to be able to find pieces that are elegant, yet simple so that I could dress them up or down depending on the event. JPark has just the pieces I need to do this. Julie Park started designing back in 1990 and since has developed her own very work-friendly line, JPark in 2010. The JPark Collection offers simple yet elegant pieces with a hint of masculine.
How can you go wrong with cashmere or a cardigan?
JPark sent me an amazing box of goodies to try out for all of you. I received the Belle Ruffle Top (shown above), the Pleat Shirt, the Silk Jewel Top and the Wrap in Dusk. When these items arrived, I was in shock at the quality and craftsmanship each piece had. Before they arrived, I thought I would love the silk jewel top the best. I really do like how it looks but the wrap in dusk really looks even better in person then online. The wrap comes with a gorgeous sash that makes the piece really stand out. I plan to wear the wrap with the pleat shirt for Christmas Eve pairing it with some skinny cords and booties. JPark’s sizing is a little different then standard sizing because you choose either a 1, 2, or 3 for your size. I ended up getting a size 2 which seemed about right for me (size 4-6 top or medium). All four items fit me really well, so if you are planning to order look at their size chart for assistance.
Here’s the Belle Ruffle- I actually love this on, but was a little nervous how it would fit when it first arrived. The material is so soft and slightly sheer, so I assumed it would cling to places I didn’t want it to. It didn’t at all, in fact- the waist and hip area was loose and the sleeves started off feeling a little snug but within 10 minutes of wearing it, they stretched out.
I love this wrap, I think pairing with with the pleat shirt is perfect.
I love how fitted this pleat shirt is, without being tight. I usually don’t like wearing cotton dress shirts like this alone, but this one with its asymmetrical collar makes for the perfect shirt by itself. I think I’d dress it up with big earrings next time.
Here’s the silk jewel top– I do love the soft material again (similiar to the belle ruffle top). This shirt actually tapers in at the waist, so I was leary about this one when I first tried it on. Since it has the dolman sleeves, it only makes sense that the waist would be more fitted. I do love that this can be worn during the day with jeans or with a skirt or pants and heels for an evening out.

I was not paid to write this post, these are my honest opinions. I did however receive the items mentioned above at no cost to me.
