My Mail Day - Paris Perfection CRB, Gratitude Wrap, and Feel Good Pants

Welcome to the family, Paris Perfection.

I had to monkey with the color on this photo a little because it was pasting into the blog super saturated but I think it looks better now. From left to right: Pow Pink, Raspberry Glo, Pinkelicious, and Paris Perfection. I think Paris Perfection is closest to Pow Pink of the hot pinks I own. I don't have any Paris items to compare this to, sorry, but when I find a photo of a comparison I will post it.  The good news is that this CRB is made in Canada. I have read it's a thicker one. I didn't try it on yet since I went to the dermatologist today and had some minor procedures so didn't want to risk staining my shirt. I will let you know tomorrow about thickness and softness.

I also got the Gratitude Wrap I ordered the other day. This is the heathered Inkwell in a size 10, which seems to be my jacket size in most things. I think it looks better than GWs have in the past but I don't love the style and I've been spending like crazy so it will be going back. The jacket is TTS but snug in the arms.

Heathered Black new Feel Goods on left and original Black Feel Goods on right (my camera washed it out a bit)
I also got my Feel Good pants today. Unfortunately, they do not feel as good as the original Feel Goods which were super soft on the inside (and outside). They aren't bad, but they aren't true Feel Goods. I think the material is the same as that used in the new Calm and Cozy pants. The material is also a bit thinner than the original Feel Goods. This isn't a deal breaker for me since I can only use my Feel Goods in cooler months where I live but they are not the same snuggly Feel Goods we know and love. The fit is the same, though - a close fitting sweat pant. I am not sure whether I will be returning these or not since they are a super casual sweat pant. My current Feel Goods are too big and I really don't feel like hunting down used Feel Goods in my new size. Those of you who ordered new Feel Goods and have old ones, what did you think? Are you keeping yours?

Also, not part of my mail day but thought I would include it in this batch of non-store photos. The top are the new Black and White swiftlys that were just uploaded tonight. The bottom is a comparison of the Heathered Soot Swiftly that was out a couple of months ago to the new Black Striped Swiftly that just came out. (Thanks to Ms. C. for the photos.)

yeah got my feel goods in the navy and love them didn't have its predesesor too bad about the fabric being thinner- isn't that just the story w/ everything- cheaper thinner everything just about- I do love them anyhow and am keeping I ordered the gray too and may order the charcoal- I rarely like any pants lately and this style is just my cup of tea and they fit nice imo.

Thank you for the pink comparison!! I have been wondering if paris perfection is different enough from ras glo and pinkelicious to justify. I am also excited to hear what people think of the striped swiflies when they seem them in person....I am thinking they might photograph much different than when you see them in person :)

I tried on the GW yesterday. I liked the style and fit but I felt the quality was way off. Felt and looked like something I would find at Sam's Club. The button stitches showing on the front really turned me off. To me that was a sign of poor design or a rushed designer. THe stitches on the front to me just cheapened it.

the stripey swiftlys are very nice, they are soft and the material seems more durable than they previous ones. I got the racer back and did yoga in it last night and barely felt that I had a top on. It looks nicer in person as well.

I saw both SS & tank in the new swiftly stripe yesterday but didn't like the feel, it felt scratchy and thin.

Does anyone know if Paris perfection bleeds? I want a hot pink tank, but I'm always afraid of bleeding colors. Thanks!
