J. Crew Regent Blazer in Red Houndstooth Plaid

Hi Everyone!

I knew that the J. Crew Regent Blazer in Red Houndstooth Plaid would be added to my wardrobe as soon as I saw it in the most recent Style Guide.  This blazer is breathtaking.  There is only one review on the J. Crew website for this blazer at this point, but that reviewer totally agrees with me.

I do not like rushing in the mornings, so I plan my outfits months in advance, but this beauty is at the top of my "wear it immediately" list:



The details inside the blazer are exquisite.  This lining is SO fab.  



This is the website image that sold me on this beautiful blazer:



Fit Details:  I took my normal size 12 in this blazer, so the fit is TTS.  I am drawn to blazers because they're easy teaching outfits for me.  This blazer is so unique, classy, and preppy.  It fits my style completely.  And, I love the striped lining inside the blazer because it pairs so well with the red plaid.  It's an unexpected yet totally amazing combination in my opinion.

J. Crew Lace Applique and Jeweled Wool Back-Zip Sweaters


Hi Everyone!

Fall is my favorite season because I love to layer.  And, one of my favorite wardrobe staples is a fun/unique sweater.  I love J. Crew sweaters.  They are wardrobe workhorses for me.  I own sweaters from J. Crew from as far back as 2006/2007 and I have found the superb quality to be consistent throughout the years.  Recently, I added two sweaters to my wardrobe that will be on constant repeat for years to come.


The Lace Applique Sweater is an adorable design with spectacular details that will jazz up a cute pair of jeans:


Fit Details:  This sweater fits TTS.  The sweater is a little boxy, but not too boxy.  And, wearing a shirt underneath the sweater makes the sweater less boxy in my opinion.  The applique details are well-done and securely attached.  This is a great quality piece.

Outfit Details:

Sweater | J. Crew Lace Applique Sweater (use code SALETREAT for 25% off); the Tippi Lace Sweater is a great option, too!

Shirt | J. Crew Always Chambray Shirt
Jeans | J. Crew Toothpick Jean in Flint Wash
Shoes | J. Crew Gemma Flats
Handbag | Kate Spade Cameron Street Fabric Mega Margot similar options in this fabric (HERE, HERE, AND HERE)

I also added the Jeweled Wool Back-Zip Sweater to my closet recently.  I was totally in love with the jeweled details on the shoulder.  I am a huge fan of embellishments on sweaters:






Fit Details:  This sweater fits TTS.  I took my normal size Large.  And, I love the details on this beauty.  The back zip adds a great unique feature, too.  The sweater is great quality and the fit is superb, too.  The weight is substantial without being too heavy or suffocating.  The back-zip is flattering even on this black girl booty, LOL, because it lays well on the butt.  This beauty gets 5-stars on the J. Crew website in the solid colors.

Outfit Details:

Sweater | J. Crew Jeweled Wool Back-Zip Sweater (solid colors HERE)
Shirt | J. Crew Favorite Shirt 
Jeans | J. Crew Toothpick Jean in Deconstructed Miller Wash (similar option HERE)
Boots | J. Crew Frankie Tumbled Leather Ankle Boots 
Handbag | Kate Spade Violet Drive Stripe Mega Maise (available HERE, too)

J. Crew Faux-Leather Pleated Midi Skirt

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Faux-Leather Pleated Midi Skirt is one of my favorite recent wardrobe additions.  The "spiced raisin" color of this skirt is SO vibrant and rich.  As many of you know, I am a pencil skirt girl through and through.  But, I have really been loving the a-line/midi silhouette.  It is surprisingly flattering.

This J. Crew Pinterest image really sold me on the skirt:



And, here is an IRL picture of the skirt:



I replaced the J. Crew Icon Trench Coat in Wool Cashmere with the well-loved J. Crew Bella Jacket. The J. Crew Regent Blazer is a great alternative in my opinion because both blazers have classic and unique popped collars.  I am also wearing the J. Crew Tippi Leopard Sweater, which gets 5-stars on the J. Crew website, and I totally see why.  I took my normal size Large in the sweater.  The fit, the quality, and the design of this sweater = SUPERB.

Details about the skirt:  Fit--I took my normal size 14.  The skirt is designed to fit higher on the waist. Rather than drawing attention to the "problem" areas, this skirt camouflages them.  The skirt is not too heavy, it's lightweight and flowy/breezy.  And, the faux leather is not stiff.  As I said in my review of the J. Crew Collection A-line Midi Skirt in Italian Wool Blend (review here) , I was initially resistant to this silhouette.  However, this silhouette is very flattering on curvier figures in my opinion.

J. Crew Collection A-Line Midi Skirt in Italian Wool Blend

Hi Everyone!

I have a review of the J. Crew Collection A-Line Midi Skirt in Italian Wool Blend to share today. This skirt was at the top of my must-have list when I saw it in the NYFW pictures last year.  I am typically drawn to pencil skirt silhouettes, but I am SO glad that I tried this beautiful skirt because it is amazing.  Seriously amazing.

Here are two IRL pictures of the skirt in the "Brunswick Blue" colorway:




Fit:  I took my normal size 14 in this skirt.  The fit is TTS to *slightly* roomy.  I was nervous that the bow would add bulk to the midsection, but I actually think that it flatters the midsection.  The A-line silhouette is also very flattering.  The fabric is substantial without being too heavy, but it's not as heavy as the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool.  I love the skirt because it's a great design with equally great quality that pushes me out of my pencil skirt comfort zone.

I styled the skirt with the J. Crew Three-Quarter Sleeve Stretch Perfect Shirt and the Dulci Suede Kitten Heels.

J. Crew Regent Topcoat in Double-Serge Wool

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Regent Topcoat in Double-Serge Wool is one of my favorite coat purchases this season.  J. Crew coats are workhorses in my wardrobe.  This beauty will be in constant rotation.

I styled the coat with one of my favorite Kate Spade handbag purchases to date:






Fit:  I took my normal size 12 in this coat, so the fit is TTS.  I adore this coat because it is so classic, it fits extremely well, and the quality is superb.  I am looking forward to wearing this beauty as soon as the weather permits.

My outfit details:

Shirt | J. Crew Shrunken Boy Shirt in Buffalo Check (30% off with code LAYERUP)

My amazing online VPS helped me plan my outfit for the show.  She must have known the color palette for the team in advance!  I love it that I was coordinating with everyone.

Finally, here are more pictures from the presentation, particularly the shoes that were showcased:
