J. Crew New Arrivals: No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool--Retro Jade and No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Herringbone--Manor Purple

Hi Everyone!

I just received the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool--Retro Jade and the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Herringbone--Manor Purple.  Here are a few IRL pictures:

No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool Retro Jade:



Here is a closer picture of the Retro Jade color:


And, here is a side-by-side comparison of the Viridian Green color from last year and the Retro Jade from this year:


The Viridian Green is on the bottom.  The Retro Jade from this year is more blue/turquoise while the Viridian Green is more of a heathered (is that a word, LOL!) green in my opinion.

Here are IRL pictures of the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Herringbone in Manor Purple:


Here is a closer picture of the Manor Purple color:

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:

Anthropologie Sunblaze Lace Skirt

Hi Everyone!

I have been eyeing the Anthropologie Sunblaze Lace Skirt since it appeared on the Anthro website.  My size sold out online, so I decided to see if a store had the skirt in my size.  Before I could check stores, the lovely Skylette posted a fabulous OOTD with this lovely skirt here.  I couldn't call customer service fast enough after seeing how lovely this skirt is IRL.

Here are a few IRL pictures of the skirt:

J. Crew Perfect Shirt in Chambray Polka Dot and Gap Polka Dot Boyfriend Shirt

Hi Everyone!

Last week, I spotted the Gap Polka Dot Boyfriend Shirt on the Gap Instagram page.  I am a sucker for polka dots, so I tracked the shirt down in a retail store and had it shipped to me.  I think that the Gap shirt is different from the J. Crew Perfect Shirt in Chambray Polka Dot.  The Gap version is heavier and has bigger polka dots.  Here are a few comparison pictures:

The Gap Polka Dot Boyfriend Shirt:


J. Crew Perfect Shirt in Chambray Polka Dot:


And, finally, here is a closer picture showing the smaller dots on the J. Crew version of this shirt:


My apologies for the blurry picture.

Verdict:  I'm keeping both shirts, LOL!

What do you think of these two shirts?  Do you prefer one version more than the other?  Do tell!

OOTD: All J. Crew!

Hi Everyone!

My OOTD is all J. Crew!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Raj Paisley.  It's hands down one of my favorite J. Crew prints.  Several people at church today said they want this skirt, and one person even said that she loved the pattern mixing I have going on.  I couldn't take the credit for this outfit; I copied the styling from a store mannequin.

Here is my outfit:



And, here is a picture of the mannequin I copied:


p.s.  A HUGE thank you to Barretty who let me know that someone is using one of my photos for their eBay Bubble Necklace listing.  I've reported the picture.
