Leap Year Specials

Hi Everyone!

Today was filled with great Leap Year specials from retailers!  I have been eyeing the Talbots skirt seen below for a few weeks.  So, I was super happy that Talbots offered 40% off of 1 item in honor of Leap Year today. I grabbed this beauty:


And, although Coach wasn't offering a Leap Year discount per se, I had a $100.00 off coupon that expired today.  I buy handbags so infrequently (I've been carrying the same Kate Spade bag for 4 years) that I decided to grab this beauty:


Did you take advantage of any Leap Year sales today?  Do tell!

J. Crew New Arrivals: What I'm Loving!

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited to see new arrivals on the J. Crew website this morning!  I also stopped by my retail store to check out the new items.  Here's what I'm loving:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Stripe Ballet Flats.  I grabbed these this morning.  Here's an IRL picture of the shoes:


 I'm also loving the Talitha Top in Peacock Paisley and the Talitha Blouse in Vintage Berry.  I grabbed both of  these tops as well:


I'm also loving the Raindrop Lace Top in Neon Azalea.  For some reason, my store didn't get a size 12 in this top.  I can't wait to get this beauty from another store in my area:


Finally, It's no secret that I love pencil skirts, so I'm super excited about the Royal Violet color of the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton.  I will post IRL pictures of this beautiful color when the skirt arrives next week:

Sadly, the other pencil skirts I love aren't offered in a size 14.  Oh well, that's money saved!

That's what I'm loving!  What J. Crew new arrivals are you loving?  Do tell!

J. Crew Viv Bow Flats: I'll Take Two

Hi Everyone!

Last week I blogged about buying multiples.  I was trying to decide if I should purchase the J. Crew Viv Bow flats in Topiary since I already own these shoes in the Henna color.  Boy, oh boy, am I glad that I decided to go for the Topiary color too.  I LOVE this color!  Here are a few IRL pictures:


I sized up to a 9 1/2 in the Topiary color and I'm glad that I did.  I'll have to use a shoe stretcher for my other pair of these shoes.

What do you think of this color?  Do tell!

p.s. I will review the Viv Patent Flats in Festival Green when they arrive tomorrow!

Thursday Thoughts: On Buying Multiples

Hi Everyone!

Okay, I've acknowledged my weakness for buying multiples.  I'm wondering, however, if it's going too far to purchase multiple versions of the same shoe.  Here's my dilemma:  I own the J. Crew Viv Flats with the bow in the Henna color and I LOVE them.  Now, I can't stop looking at the same shoe in the Topiary color seen below:
This shoe is really classic, but would it be over the top to own it in 2 colors?  What do you think?  Do tell!

Review: J. Crew Jacquard Dot Popover

Hi Everyone!

Happy Valentine's Day!  I wish that I could post some glamorous OOTD, but I can't. I work from home in my pajamas as often as I can on my non-teaching days, and somehow, I don't think you want to see pictures of my Gap plaid pajamas.  If I'm wrong, let me know, LOL!

I received the J. Crew Jacquard Dot Popover today.  I really like the print.  Here are a few IRL pictures:


See this lovely top on the wonderful ajc of the equally wonderful blog, A JC Shopping Habit here.

OOTD: Vintage Tweed-ing It and A Couple of Notes

Hi Everyone!

Here is a quick post featuring what I wore to church today:


See this outfit combination on Suzy of the wonderful Bichonluvr's Blog here.

My outfit was inspired by the wonderful Suzy, and this website image:


This outfit combination was also featured during a style segment on the Rachael Ray show here.

p.s.  If you're looking for the Boy Shirt in Heart Throb, I'd do a WWFIFY for the shirt.  My retail store said that select stores have a full size run of the shirt.

p.s.s. I have an extra set of Banana Republic 40% off coupons for Monday, February 20, Wednesday, February 29, and Wednesday, March 7.  I'll mail the coupons to the first person who emails me at jcrewismyfavstore@gmail.com 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

J. Crew Store Styling Inspiration

Hi Everyone!

I stopped by the J. Crew retail store today to try on a few things with my personal shopper.  I'm always inspired by the store mannequins and windows when I'm trying to style items.  I thought that I'd share a few pictures that I snapped while in the store.  I am LOVING all of the blues and greens in retail stores this season:




Here is a closer picture of the blue Tippi Sweater and the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Warm Jade.  I LOVE this combination!  Now, I just have to figure out what shoes to wear with this outfit:


I was hoping that the gorgeous Kate Spade Simon shoe would work, but I think that the green shoe is much lighter than the Warm Jade color of the skirt--what do you think?  Here's the Kate Spade shoe:



Are you loving the J. Crew blues and greens as much as I am?  Do tell!

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

J. Crew Wishlist Additions

Hi Everyone!

As usual, I've added a few items to my J. Crew wishlist.  I noticed yesterday that J. Crew has released new colors in two shirts that I love:  the Natasha Top and the Talitha Blouse:

The Gallery Green color of the Natasha top is really vibrant, and it fits nicely into my wardrobe.  Green is really one of my favorite colors, so I'm super excited that it is one of the prominent colors for this spring:

I'm also loving the vintage berry color of the Talitha Blouse:

And, finally, I'm loving the Boy Shirt in Barbados Plaid.  I'm not sure how I missed this shirt when I was in the retail store, but it is a must have for me!  I love the vibrant colors in this shirt:


My wishlist is constantly expanding, is yours?  Do tell!
