36? That's my size too. Are they too big by a lot?

Thanks, Tinetush

^Stopped by today and found the sandals. The size was not bad on me. A little longer in length than normally, but pretty much a non-issue. I left them behind though, because I didn't like the feeling of the elastic bands and thought the colour was not as nude as I wanted.

BR is high end american style for office wear. COS is more Parisian and more fashion forward.

^Parisian? I don't really think so...I don't think it's any particular city's style, and that is what's so great about it.

^Agree about city. I do think there are designer/brands influences though

Returned from another trip today - of course ended up buying stuff even though I was supposed to return (dang it!)

I got some really nice tees - viscose and a tiny pocket on the left chest area in grey, white and navy. I don't know if it's overkill to keep them all, but I do need some good tees. A pair of lovely, nude coloured harem pants in 100% silk. A black pair of short, flat ankle boots. They are really nice, but a little heavy. I'll see if I can get some pictures up tmr.

But I was lusting so much for a pair of sandals that reminds me of these Chloe sandals:


NAP

Unfortunately, they told me they are totally sold out in sz 36. Ugh.

haha well clearly i dont know the brand since you know i dont actually get to shop there.

im just referring to the cleaner look and focus on cut rather than fast retail which i associate with parisian style.

Thanks for sharing your experience and congrats on you buys advo. The harem pants sound great, I've been looking for something like this for ages. Will surely go and check out.

As for COS style, for me it is like a mix of Jil Sander and Marni plus a range of classic clothes with a minimalist Nordic twist.

I also agree that they have lots of designers/trends inspired pieces.
