J. Crew Tessa Top, Tillary Tote in Canvas Stripe, and a few new arrivals

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Tessa Top in Chili and Brilliant Purple, as well as the Tillary Tote in Canvas Stripe yesterday.  I LOVE these items!  Here are a few IRL pictures:

Brilliant Purple:



Chili:

The bottom of the top is twisted in this picture, oops!  I really like both of these tops.  I'm super grateful to the lovely Dani BP for posting about this top HERE.  Somehow, I missed this lovely top when it first appeared on the J. Crew website.  See the Tessa top on the lovely shopwithm HERE.

I saw the Tillary Tote in Canvas Stripe IRL when I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago.  I liked the tote a lot, but I left it in the store.  I couldn't stop thinking about how versatile this tote is, so thankfully my fabulous personal shopper was able to find it in a retail store.  I see why this tote has received so much love in the blog world:


Finally, two new pencil skirts appeared on the J. Crew website this morning.  I squealed when I saw the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Caribbean Tweed.  I ordered this one immediately:

 I LOVE navy and green together!  I can't wait to get my hands on this beauty!

And, the other new skirt is the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Safari Cat:

I really like this print, but I think that it may be too brown for my skin tone.

What do you think of the J. Crew Tessa Top, the Tillary Tote in Canvas Stripe, and the new arrivals?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Love, love the Tessa top on you! I'm waiting to see if it'll come in white or flax before jumping on it but I believe this top is really versatile. Like you, I love my Tillary tote and I'm really glad that I got on sale at such a great price. It really is a great bag for summer. You have made some great choices.

  7. Envious of your tote! And will have to check out the Tessa top, the colors are great. Trying to quit the pencil skirts, at least for a while but the safari cat is tempting since I cannot resist animal print ...

  11. Hi Rynetta! Is the Tessa top blue in real life? It looks blue on my screen, yet I've purchased other tops in bright purple and they are really purple in real life.

    Enjoy the Tillary! Regretfully, I returned mine to the store last week. As I walked out of the store it was frowning at me, and my decision to leave it behind. It's a pretty tote but wouldn't get the use it deserves from me.

    Thanks for yor help and reviews. :)

    1. Hi JustVisiting! The Tessa top is a bright purple in real life. I'll try to capture a clearer picture. I'll edit this post to include the picture. HTH!

      About the Tillary: I hear you. Initially, I left it in the store, but I couldn't stop thinking about it!! And, you're very welcome for the reviews!

      Thanks SO much for being here!
