J. Crew Front-Slit Skirt in Deco Floral and Sleeveless Silk Popover in Deco Floral

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Deco Floral print is absolutely stunning in my opinion.  I am a huge fan of this print.  I have reviews of both the J. Crew Front-Slit Skirt in Deco Floral and Sleeveless Silk Popover in Deco Floral to share today.  

The skirt:




Fit/details:  I took my normal size 14 in this skirt, so it's TTS.  The material is substantial weight without being too heavy to wear during the summer.  This is actually a great spring/summer staple. And, the slit in the front is modest--it is not too high.  The colors are absolutely stunning.  I have said it before, but I will say it again, J. Crew does colors and patterns better than any other retailer in my opinion.

The Popover:




Fit:  I took my normal size 12 in this blouse.  So, the fit is TTS.  The blouse is great quality and the fit is superb.  The armholes fit perfectly--there is no gaping at all.   This pattern looks great with the J. Crew Denim Jacket in Tyler Wash.  And, the pattern also looks fantastic with white jeans.

J. Crew Marlo Crossbody Bag

Hi Everyone!

I am constantly looking for a compact, yet stylish and versatile bag that works well for travel and for moving around a college campus.  So, I was super excited to receive the J. Crew Marlo Crossbody Bag.  The bag is great quality and it comes in four fun colors (minty green, black, natural vachetta, and neon orange):



Here is one way that I plan to style the "neon orange" color of this gorgeous bag:



The Marlo Crossbody Bag is a great bag to use while traveling.  I don't like searching for things while I am moving through an airport or getting out of a cab/uber.  This bag is compact, so it makes it easy to find things without digging around.  Although the bag is compact, it is big enough to carry my travel essentials including my passport, my prescription sunglasses, my cell phone, and my credit cards:



I highly recommend this beautiful, well-constructed, and fun bag!  I am really looking forward to using these beauties for an upcoming trip!  And, this bag will be a lifesaver when I am on campus moving from my office to meetings/the classroom.  I can find things easily without spending time searching for my keys or for my phone.  

Outfit Details:

Bag | J. Crew Marlo Crossbody Bag-- c/o J. Crew 
Boots | super old Banana Republic; similar--J. Crew Field Boots

Sneak Peek: J. Crew New Arrivals Shoes!

Hi Everyone!

J. Crew is loading images on their Pinterest page featuring the new arrivals that will be available on the website Tuesday.  I am super excited!  I received two new items yesterday (after an eventful trip to the UPS customer center in the snow) that I want to share.  Both of these beauties will be online Tuesday.  There is a new "jeweled" J. Crew Collection Sloan Jeweled Suede d'Orsay Flat and a new color ("Royal Shadow") in the J. Crew Biella Tassel Loafer:


These shoes are absolutely FAB!  The quality is superb and the fit is TTS.  I took my normal size 9 in both.

And, these gorgeous Gemma Flats in Stripe have been in retail stores for a bit, but they were an "early release" for the next rollout:

OOTD: (Saturday)--J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Cocoon Coat

Hi Everyone!

I spent this past weekend in Chicago celebrating with one of my college roommates/Sorority sisters for her 40th birthday!  It was a great weekend!  One of our other roommates (who is also our Sorority/Big Sister) was there, too!  It was SO great to spend time with them and to catch up.  And, my amazing hubby makes any trip extra special.  I am really blessed.

Here is the outfit that I wore Saturday for a day of brunching and shopping:



Outfit Details:

Coat | J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Cocoon Coat (one of my faves!)
Boots | Banana Republic (super old from 2007)--similar, J. Crew Field Boots 

And, here is a picture of me and my amazing hubby at the 40th birthday party!:



I LOVE this man!

J. Crew Collection Embellished Harris Tweed Topcoat

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Collection Embellished Harris Tweed Topcoat is a stunner.  This coat is absolutely stunning.  But, do not take my word for it, check out these pictures:







Fit/Details:  I took my normal size 12 in this coat.  I think that the fit is TTS to a little roomy.  I am wearing the J. Crew Always Chambray Shirt with the coat, but I could definitely layer a bigger sweater as well.

This coat is definitely an investment piece, but I think that it is worth every. single. dime.  The quality is superb and the details are super striking.  There are "glass stones" on the coat that add that extra special detail to make this a fabulous piece.  Moreover, the "customized vintage-inspired buttons" are refined.  They make the glass stones stand out.  And, as many of you know, I am a huge fan of popped collars.  So, the cobalt blue collar was the icing on the cake for me.  The Harris Tweed feels and looks great--it's clearly superb quality.  I highly recommend this beautiful, well-constructed piece.

J. Crew Collection Metallic Skirt

Hi Everyone!

I have a review of the J. Crew Collection Metallic Skirt to share.  As you know, I am a huge fan of J. Crew pencil skirts.  The fit, the quality, and the design of their pencil skirts =  total winner in my opinion. Initially, I was concerned that this skirt would be too holiday to wear into February/March, so I purchased the skirt and returned it.  Then, I had major regret.  I am so grateful for my amazing VPSs who tracked this beauty down at a retail store:




Fit Details:  I sized up *one* size from a 14 to a 16 in this skirt.  The skirt does not have much give, so I suggest sizing up to the larger of your two J. Crew sizes.  The pattern is absolutely stunning. I am totally convinced that this skirt can be worn outside of the holiday season, particularly if it is paired with chambray.  This skirt is definitely collection quality.  A winner all around!

Here are the two styling images that (re)inspired my purchase:

I LOVE the idea of pairing this skirt with the J. Crew Shrunken Boy Shirt in Emerald Buffalo Check, but my amazing husband is not a fan of the combo on me!




So, I went with this pairing, which features the J. Crew Denim Jacket in Tyler Wash,  the  J. Crew Selvedge Chambray Shirt (I'm wearing the J. Crew Always Chambray Shirt in these pics), and the J. Crew Collection Dulci Calf Hair Kitten Heels.  I was surprised by how much I loved the denim on denim combination:  

 

I cannot wait to wear this outfit!

J. Crew Collins Patent and Tortoise Loafers

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Collins Patent Loafer is a fabulous shoe!  The quality is phenomenal.  I wore these shoes an entire day without any issues.  There were no blisters, no squeaking, and no discomfort.

Here is an IRL picture of the shoes:



And, here is an IRL picture of the J. Crew Collins Tortoise Loafer:



Fit:  These shoes fit TTS.  I took my normal size 9.  The fit is really spectacular.  Indeed, the shoes are comfortable right out of the box.  They did not require any "breaking in."  And, again, I did not experience any painful blisters after wearing these beauties all day.
