Jas-pe (adj.) given a veined and spotted appearance imitating jasper.

So, it cooled down just enough yesterday to get away with wearing my new Jaspe sequined slouchy sweatshirt. It is such an easy piece to wear and no need for accessorizing. I can't wait to see what all the other JCA's do with this piece. For me it just screamed messy pontail, cuffed jeans and heels.

This is the end of the day shot so my lipstick (and sanity) is gone but the shape of this sweater did not change or stretch through the sleeve pulls and toddler tugs. It is very well made (and better be for the price). I honestly can't put my finger on why I love this sweatshirt and I am sure some of you may think I am crazy for this one......

See it here on Dina , Summerilla, Gigi and Slastena . I got mine in my true size, Medium. It is big but I feel it was meant to be so I didn't size down. However,  I also love the way it looks tighter on Slastena.

AWESOME top. And I love your review that it does not stretch or lose shape around toddlers. I need to factor that in when I contemplate buying clothing. You look great!

I think the cuffed jeans and messy ponytail were a good call! They definitely help to dress down the embellished sweatshirt! I am so afraid of trying this on. I am sure that I will love it and then cry because I can't allow myself to get it, haha!

I ordered it after seeing your outfit Debye. If/when you get a chance, would you mind sharing some styling ideas or polyvore sets for it? please? :)

I just ordered that shirt a few days ago!! I am still having remorse based on the price!!! We will see when it arrives if it's worth all that $$$! You look amazing in it!

I know I am late to the party here, but I just got mine in the grey jaspe color, put in on, and boy is that sucker HOT! The tag says its 100% cotton, and I don't think its the plastic sequins. I really like it, but here in the south, I think its a winter item. Am I alone here? Also, any issues with pilling on yours with multiple wears, or other care issues?
Thanks so much in advance,
