mociun s/s 2010 review


 The new Mociun stuff is now available in the online store!  Plus, last fall's styles are now 70% off.  I'm very excited about everything I bought from Caitlin.  Luckily I got to try it all on in person, but here's a review for those of you who are shopping online.  

First and second row: Circle Blouse in Pinwheel print (size M, runs true to size), layered over Tank Top in Black and White Argan print (size M, runs true to size).  Wow, this top is so lovely.  Check out the sleeve detail!

Third row: Plaid Spacesuit from last fall, 70% off.  It's best to size down on this one.  I got a size S.

Fourth row: Crew-neck Triangle Circle Square Tee in black and white (size M, runs true to size) and linen drop crotch pants in size L (way too big for me, as you can see, but I'm going to take them in at the sides).   I live in Mociun tees.  They're the softest, best fitting, best quality t-shirts I own.

I'm not terribly skinny, and yet I find that all the Mociun stuff I buy is very flattering to my figure.  Most of the pieces really do work on a variety of body types, not just on skinny models.  And another thing I love about Mociun is that it's gotten me to be more adventurous in how I dress.  I would have never, ever, ever worn a jumpsuit until I tried on this one!

Even though there's so much great stuff out there this spring, these are actually the only pieces I'm buying for the season.  Period.  I'm trying to be responsible with my money (credit card debt, cough cough), but that doesn't keep me from looking and enjoying.  I feel really good about these purchases, however, because I'm putting my money into a company that I believe in.  Sustainable fabrics, sewn in the U.S., lasting quality?  What's not to feel good about?

I absolutely adore that plaid spacesuit! I very nearly ordered one (bargain in the sale!) but it's $25 shipping and i'm all the way in the UK - a long way if it doesn't fit! Lovely, please enjoy it for me!

that jumpsuit is so perfect!

belle said...

These look great on you! Thanks for the heads up on the sale. I just scored a great deal on a tie-front dress. I've been wanting on of those for ages!

joyce said...

wow, jenny. thanks for the review for us online shoppers! the space suit looks adorable on you (as does everything else, really).

ellybeth said...

jenny, you look beautiful!

Kristien said...

Jenny, you look so gorgeous in these photos! That must have been the most fun to try everything on in person. I love, love, love the Circle Blouse. The print is so beautiful. And the color of those linen pants is perfect for spring. The jumpsuit is pretty awesome too.

Coincidentally enough, I have been searching the web for a while to find a store still selling the plaid linen tulip skirt tie front dress (I've loved it since Anabela first posted about it on Fieldguided), and only a couple of days ago bought it on eBay! Fortunately I didn't pay too much more than the sale price, but when I saw your post about the Mociun sale this morning I was still like, shoot, to see it finally go up on the Mociun site. For anyone else reading the comments who is interested in that dress in particular, I think it runs a little big. Normally I am a small (4/6) in dresses, and the XS fit me really well.

Happy Easter! And enjoy this beautiful weather and all of your new clothes! So many good things.

Hello Lindello said...

Linzo said...

The jumpsuit is SO CUTE!

from lara said...

i looove the jumpsuit! and with that red lipstick? it's perfect! what shade are you wearing? also, i admire that you're putting your money into quality pieces :)

angelica said...

everything looks great on you!but im a huge fan of that overall!

Rebecca said...

These pieces are gorgeous. I totally agree with you about spending money on a few good quality pieces.

eve said...

thanks so much for the post and mociun sizing comments! after reading your comments and then kritenn's i went ahead and ordered the plaid linen tie front dress in XS ... i so hope it fits me!!
i love it all , but have been wanting one of the linen tie front dresses for a while... i am looking forward to your shop update.

Kriscanuck said...

LOVE the jumpsuit!!!! gorgeous choices. so appreciate that you obviously love clothing, but are putting it out there that you are only choosing a few pieces this season! i think it's true that the less we have- the more we appreciate.

craftysunday said...

Thanks for the reviews! I just ordered a sale tshirt, and I'm a little worried it's going to be too big (big bust/ribcage, but short torso... so best to go with what fits, no?). I think I'll be okay. :)

For myself I'm not a fan of jumpsuits or any full on pant/short/romper dealies...but that looks AMAZING on you! Lovely purchases. Ah...spring.

Cheers,
mindi

Megan said...

AH! you look adorable! seriously, I love all of those looks. and those black pants are super cute on you, too! the top's rad, the jumpsuit's rad, and the t-shirt is super rad...I don't have any of her tee's yet, so I might have to buy that one to try out...and I think the maroon-ish pants are super cute...they're drop-crotch, right? I bought the black ones from this past season, LOVE THEM, but still have to figure out how to make them not look like flood pants on me, since I'm not that tall, but obviously they're supposed to be short...and what shoes to wear?? hammering that one out...

and the necklace?! adorbs. overall, nice score. nicely done.

Megan said...

hahaha oh wait, nvmd, you already said that in the post. nix that comment! I can't read

Megan said...

oh also, what size did you get with the tee, Jenny? I love how it fits on you, since I prefer a looser/boys' fit with tees

sheryl said...

Thanks for posting all this. It's so helpful to hear how things fit, especially when you can't try on before buying.
I love everything you got, especially the blouse. I was initially drawn to the bands of color print, but wow, the pinwheel print is beautiful. It looks great on you!

Bekväm said...

Awesome! I love the silk circle blouse, the sleeves are too good!

I bought my first Mociun tee awhile back and I Looove it. whenever I wear it I feel instantly better, I think it probably has to do with the awesome print/colors.

romaine said...

I have a mocium tee in the sticks and stones print - my favorite tee - actually my favorite top that i own. and i love the new tee in the circle triangle, square design you are wearing. thanks for the reviews!

Jennifer said...

I love everything of hers I've purchased,and I've purchased quite a few things (there needs to be a Mociun 12-Step group). You look great in everything. Especially love the buffalo check jumpsuit on you. The white printed top is also really nice on you!

Louise said...

That jumpsuit looks amAZIng! so flattering and comfortable.

enilorac said...

i am loving that circle blouse, it looks great on you. & you are thin!

Kristien said...

Hey Jenny, out of curiosity, how do the Mociun leggings run? I've been thinking about splurging on a pair to liven up some of my more plain dresses and tunics. I know you said you sized down in the jumpsuit, so wasn't sure whether Mociun bottoms run large in general. Thanks so much!!

Staciela said...

that red lipstick is the perfect shade for you! i always feel like everyone is staring at me when i wear it, but it does look cute :)

rennes le château said...

Everything looks cute - I really like the shoulder cut out top. I love the wooden cabinets behind you as well :)

P R I M O E Z A said...

the jumpsuit looks great on you and the blouse is lovely. am a big fan of mociun.

stacey said...

thanks for the inspiration! I just wanted to say that I just bought the coral/gray tie bikini, argan tie front dress and a couple of tees and LOVE them all!
