I love Joanna. Joanna is my little accomplice to my shopping crimes and she's based in Atlanta. She helps me score things over there that I can't get or which have sold out over here. Like one of my Uniqlo silk spotty shirts and this Madame Rue APC sweatshirt which I'd been eyeing up all last season. When it went in the sales over here, I wasn't quick enough and they sold out in my size but an internet trawl brought it up in my size in .... Barneys in the U.S.
"Hi Joanna, how the devil are you? You couldn't do me a favour could you? You could? Well, I've seen this lovely APC sweatshirt in my size - would you be so kind as to order me it? You would? You're a doll!"

We did the handover in February when she came over for our bloggy meet. I was in no rush - you know me, buy and hoard and wear the following year. Infact, this one has spent a relatively short time in the wardrobe unworn. It's only been a couple of months since I got it.
I'm wearing this in a size small. It's quite a neat fit and not overly long in the body. The sleeves are the perfect length on me so I think anyone who was taller and with longer arms would not have fared too well with this. Usually I have the opposite problem where everything is a little long in the arms and the body so this is quite a novelty to find something with sleeves which fit me.
By the way, the above will be my uniform for the next few months and you will be very bored of it if you are not already. Jeans, tan sandals/espadrilles and a top of some sort - I like it, it works, it's comfortable, I'm boring.
Anyway, I'm up to my old tricks again. "Hi Joanna, you couldn't do me a favour could you? ......." :o)))
