J. Crew New Arrivals: No. 2 Pencil Skirts--Berry Pink and Festival Blue and Enameled Elephant Bracelet

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirts in Double-Serge Wool in Berry Pink and Festival Blue, as well as the Enameled Elephant Bracelet in Retro Jade moments ago.  Here are a few IRL pictures:

OOPS, I just realized that the skirt is twisted in the back in this picture, sorry!


Here is a closer picture of the Festival Blue color (excuse the wrinkles; these pictures were snapped as soon as I took the skirt out of the box):


I really like these skirts!  I will note that the 2012 version of these skirts seem longer than the 2008-2011 versions.  

Finally, here is an IRL picture of the Enameled Elephant Bracelet in Retro Jade:


What do you think of the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirts in Double-Serge Wool in Berry Pink and Festival Blue, as well as the Enameled Elephant Bracelet in Retro Jade?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. A: I like both colors too! I know that a lot of people won't like the longer length. I like it because I'm always trying to make sure that my knees are covered, LOL!

  15. I love all of these items!! J.Crew always knocks it out of the park with colors. I'm on a pencil skirt ban at the moment, so I hope they do the festival blue in a pant.
