Welcome back to the always popular & fun Reece!
The Reece first appeared in late summer, early fall 2014. Designed as a basic from the beginning, the Reece came in our super lush fabric with little feminine ruffles on the shoulder, a fabulous ‘bum coverage’ high-low hem, deep front pockets, and thumbholes to help keep your hands warm. Originally available in Navy and Moss Green to easily coordinate with your fall/winter wardrobe pieces.
Funny trivia fact: the Reece was designed with Reese Witherspoon as an inspiration. She is always so put-together; feminine without being overly frilly (Elle Woods aside…ha…), she is a strong, classic and successful woman. But somehow between the design, manufacturing, and release, the name was misspelled as Reece instead of Reese. By the time we noticed it was too late to correct in our systems, so Reece it remains!
Such is life, friends…accept that we are all human and make the best of the little oops we make from time to time! Offer grace to others as freely as we hope to receive it.

Almost an entire year later, the Reece came back, and this time in an eye-popping, fun Sea Glass Blue and a bold Azalea! These Summer 2015 colors sold out at lightening speed and remain all-time favorite colors, paired with the classic design. If you were fortunate enough to grab one of these, hang on to it and enjoy! Amy is more of a neutral-color person in her own clothing palette, so it was extremely fun to see her surprise at the success of these bright colors.

Following up on these fun summer pieces, the Reece was slightly reinvented for Fall/Winter 2015. The style remained the same, but the light-weight summer fabric was exchanged for a toasty, fleece-brushed, soft and cozy thicker fabric. The warm Cranberry color was the perfect transition into the new cold-weather season.

And now, the Reece is back, but redesigned once again to fit the season. For Summer 2016 it comes to us as a fun vest! We have so many much-loved and appreciated customers in areas that have high temperatures, as we always try to find a way to cater especially to them, as well as to anyone wanting to have cute pieces for the summer. Perfect for those hot climates, to layer over tees or tanks…to wear from home, on a date, to the pool or ocean, or any of your favorite summer activities. We choose a deep green peacock color to compliment all those spring/summer bright and neutral colors and we included the classic front pockets, large hood and beefy drawstring.

What is the same? The Reece has always featured the simple, feminine shoulder ruffles, the figure-flattering high-low hem, deep front pockets, a hood and matching drawstring and zipper pull. The Peacock Reece Vest has all of these features.
What is different?The Reece Vest, of course, does not have the sleeves and thumbholes. The fabric is once again a lighter-weight, summer-ready thinner material, but it is still the traditional buttery soft fabric.

The Reece Vest is true to size; as usual, it’s a personal preference if you’d like to size up or down. It is designed to be slightly loose to allow for simple layering. If you are between sizes and you’d like to wear this zipped, you may want to size up. Ladies with fuller busts who plan to wear this zipped at times may also want to size up. Most of the staff who tried on the Reece Vest are electing to stay in their regular sizes.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us via Live Chat (during business hours) if you have sizing questions.
Care: we recommend washing on cold, with like colors, in a mesh laundry bag. With all zippered pieces, zip completely before washing. Hang or lie flat to dry. Low setting iron if desired. For more laundry, color set, and care tips please see our FAQ section.
The Reece will be available for purchase on May 24 at 6 pm PST. It will ship approximately June 1. Let us know if you have any questions!
