J. Crew Double-Strand Resin Link Frog Necklace in Daiquiri Ice

Hi Everyone!

I was able to visit a J. Crew retail store in Ohio earlier today, and they had the Double-Strand Resin Link Frog Necklace in Daiquiri Ice.  I've been eyeing this necklace on the website for a long time; however, I wanted to see it IRL.  I LOVE this necklace, so I grabbed it!  Someone may need to stage a J. Crew jewelry intervention soon, LOL!

Here are a few IRL pictures of the necklace:

J. Crew Martina Patent Wedges in Casablanca Blue

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Martina Patent Wedges in Casablanca Blue yesterday.  I've loved these shoes since they appeared on the J. Crew website.  I was concerned,  however, about the height of the wedge.  After seeing these lovely shoes in this lovely color on the wonderful shopwithm and the wonderful Dani BP, I knew that I had to try them.  I am SO glad that I did!  Here are a few IRL pictures:





I really like these shoes!!!  I sized up a 1/2 size to a 9.5

J. Crew Double-Strand Giraffe Necklace and Ram Bracelet

Hi Everyone!

My amazing retail personal shopper called me yesterday to let me know that they received the Double-Strand Giraffe Necklace and a few new colors in the Tippi Sweater.  I went to check out these items earlier today.  I really like the Giraffe necklace, so it came home with me (as well as 2 greenish Tippi Sweaters that I will post reviews of later this week).  I should note, however, that the pearls on the necklace are a blush color.  I couldn't tell this on the computer screen.  Blush doesn't look great against my skin, so I'll definitely have to wear this necklace with bright tops.  Here are a few IRL pictures:




I'm really loving J. Crew jewelry lately!

While I was in the store, I tried on the Ram Bracelet.  I don't normally wear bracelets, but oh my goodness, I LOOOVVVVEEEEE this one!  After the 30% off, this necklace bracelet was about $27.00.  Here are a few IRL pictures:




Also, I'm wearing one of the new colors of the Tippi Sweater in the pictures featuring the Giraffe Necklace.

J. Crew Sequin Tank and Navy Schoolboy Blazer in Linen

Hi Everyone!

I stopped by the J. Crew retail store yesterday to pick up a few things that I had shipped to my amazing retail personal shopper while I was away on vacation.  I spotted a super cute sequin tank that I don't see online while I was in the store.  Here is an IRL picture of the tank with the Navy Schoolboy Blazer in Linen:


I really like this sequin tank, specifically the lighter blue-ish color at the bottom of the top.

While in the store, I also grabbed the Oxford Dot Shirt, which I don't see online either.  Here is an IRL picture of the shirt:


Check out Slastena's review of this lovely shirt on her wonderful blog HERE.  I will post a review of this shirt later this week.  I LOVE the dots on this shirt!!!  Also, I have a review of the Cabochon Fan Necklace in Spearmint scheduled for tomorrow.

J. Crew Ram Head Necklace

Hi Everyone!

I saw a necklace on the J. Crew 770 blog a few weeks ago that I really liked.  I hadn't seen the necklace in a retail store, so I contacted my amazing online personal shopper (I think J. Crew has changed the name to "Very Personal Stylist") to find out more about the necklace.  As usual, my PS tracked it down for me, and had it shipped to my equally amazing retail personal shopper while I was away on vacation.

Here are a few IRL pictures of the J. Crew Ram Head Necklace:



I LOVE this necklace!

Here is a picture of the necklace in the jewelry case on the J. Crew 770 blog:

Vacation Pictures

Hi Everyone!

I've really missed blogging while I was away on vacation!  I tried really hard to keep up with other blogs while I was away, so hopefully I didn't miss anything.  Here are a few pictures from our trip to Aruba.  I had a GREAT time despite my wardrobe concerns.  I was able to get into the water/pool without feeling too weird.  I must admit, however, that I kept my cover up on, LOL!

Here are the pictures:

This is a lazy river at the Marriott Surf Club in Aruba.  We floated around this river for hours.  It was really peaceful!





I'll post more pictures later this week!  I hope that everyone is having a great day!

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

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited to see the new arrivals on the J. Crew website this morning.  Here's what I'm loving:

I knew that I had to have the Perfect Shirt in Chambray Polka Dot the moment that I saw it in the retail store.  This is a really great/cute shirt!  Here is the website picture:



And, here is an IRL picture of the shirt:


I'm also loving the Cabochon Fan Necklace in Spearmint:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this necklace!!!

J. Crew Crystal Circle Necklace and the Top 5 Reasons why I Dislike Vacations

Hi Everyone!

I grabbed the J. Crew Crystal Circle Necklace when I stopped by the retail store yesterday.  Here is an IRL picture of the necklace:


I really like this necklace.  I think that it will add a little pop to an outfit.  What do you think of the J. Crew Crystal Circle Necklace?

In other news, this has been a tough week for me.  I know that you'll think I'm crazy when I tell you why, but I am dreading my upcoming vacation.  Have you ever met a person who dreads going on vacation?  There's a first time for everything I guess.  Here are the top 5 reasons why I dislike beach vacations:

1.  I strongly dislike being told that there will be someone else on the beach who is showing body parts they should keep hidden, or that I'll never see those people again.  I don't care what other people are wearing.  A poorly dressed or scantily clad beach goer doesn't make me feel better about my body.

2.  Going to a warmer climate means that I can't layer as much as I normally do.

3.  My wardrobe consists mainly of pencil skirts.  While I could wear a pencil skirt on the beach, I'd look like a fool.

4.  I firmly believe that just because they make it in my size......well, you know the rest.

5.  I have to buy a bathing suit that I'll never like because it grabs the areas of my body that I'd rather hide.  And, I'll never wear/use the thing ever again.

On the bright side, I'll get to spend uninterrupted time with my wonderful hubby and our wonderful friends.

Do you have frustrations about going to the beach?  Please tell me that I'm not alone.

Thanks for stopping by!

J. Crew Viv Stripe Flats

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Viv Stripe Flats yesterday.  I've been eyeing these shoes for a long time; however, I was waiting patiently for them to go on sale.  And, I was also trying to justify owning the ballet flats in stripe and the Viv Stripe flats.  It's crazy, I know.  Here are IRL pictures of the Viv Stripe Flats:


For some reason, I think that the pointy toe on the Viv Flats looks better with pencil skirts than the rounded toe of the ballet flats seen below:


My retail personal shopper says that I'm crazy, LOL, what do you think?  Do tell!
