J. Crew 30% off Sweater Promo

Hi Everyone!

I was really excited about the 30% off sweaters promo that J. Crew is currently offering. I've been wanting to stock up on a few sweaters, so here is what I decided to grab:

The Cashmere V-Neck Sweater in Cool Pine.

I love the following outfit combination from the J. Crew website. I plan to wear the Cool Pine Cashmere V-Neck sweater with the Jazzy Purple No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double Serge Wool like it is featured below:


I must really love the green and purple combination because I also bought the Jester turtleneck sweater to wear with my Bright Dahlia wool pencil skirt from 2010. This sweater is so cute!


Finally, I purchased the Heart Me Sweater after seeing how Rose of the wonderful 1 More Shopping Blog styled it with the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Harvest Tweed here. I always layer, so I'll add the stretch perfect shirt in white under my sweater, as seen here in this very goofy/fuzzy pic:


My store PS is not fond of the Heart Me Sweater, and she wasn't working when I bought it. I rarely shop without her, so please feel free to tell me what you think of the sweater on me. Another SA said that she liked it as long as I wear the stretch perfect shirt under it.

Did you take advantage of the sweater promo at J. Crew? Do tell!

OOTD: Vibrant Flame and Heather Dark Grape

Hi Everyone!

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Here is a quick OOTD post. I saw the following items together in a J. Crew display window in Cincinnati a month ago. So, I decided to try it.

The pencil skirt is from J. Crew circa 2008; I paired the skirt with the Tippi Sweater in Heather Dark Grape and the white stretch perfect shirt. Here are a few pics:



Excuse the boxes in our garage! Do you mix colors often? Do tell!

Oh Happy Day: J. Crew Bella Jacket!

Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers!!

A couple of weeks ago, the wonderful shopwithm posted information about an eBay listing on the equally wonderful J. Crew Aficionada blog. Boy, oh boy, did M make my day! The listing was for a NWT Bella Jacket in Neon Azalea, size 12 Tall. I don't need a tall, but I snatched this baby up for a decent "best offer" price. I can always roll up the sleeves. Thanks to shopwithm, I have the one color of the bella jacket that had initially slipped through my hands!

Here are a few IRL pics:




Now, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can find the shirt (or one similar to it) that is paired with the jacket in the following image:


What is your most recent Ebay "old school" J. Crew score? Do tell!

P.S. I highly recommend the seller who sold me this jacket, "colorsquare." She has a few more NWT bella jackets listed on eBay.

Thanks for stopping by; I really appreciate you being here!

Review: Talbots Lyla Suede Tuxedo Flats

Hi Everyone!

I tried to get this post done yesterday, but a stubborn migraine kept me from doing so. I stopped by Talbots a couple of weeks ago when they were offering 50% off of one item. Unfortunately, I walked out of the store without trying the adorable Lyla Suede Tuxedo Flats:


Recently, I got a 30% off best customer postcard in the mail, so I stopped by the store to try these beauties on. I LOVE these shoes!! Here are a few IRL pics:




Check these shoes out on the wonderful shopwithm here and the lovely Sparrows & Sparkles here


Also, Talbots is currently having a promotion on shoes and accessories online. What do you think of the Lyla Suede Tuxedo Flats?

Review: J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Tinsel Tweed

Hi Everyone!

I received the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Tinsel Tweed yesterday. I really like the skirt. The problem, however, is that it was damaged right out of the package. As you can see in the second picture below, there is a snag on the skirt in the back. My wonderful hubby noticed it immediately and said, "I cannot believe the person who packaged the skirt didn't see that snag." I can't believe it either.

I called CS immediately, and they've already sent me a new skirt. Hopefully the new skirt will be snag free!!

Here are a few IRL pics:




In these pictures, the skirt looks blue; however, it is a beautiful shade of purple. I know that there has been some discussion about the material content, particularly the acrylic in the skirt. For some reason, this doesn't bother me. I don't know if I've been drinking too much crewlade or not, but I really, really like this skirt.

Here is the website picture; I really like the styling.
