Sale alert! J Crew and t+j Designs!

J Crew has 30% off sale items right now.  (It's not a lot but ebates has it at 1.5% cashback, so don't forget to use it to get a little bit extra savings.)  On Friday I went shopping and tried on a few items including the Honeycomb Cable Sweater.  It was $39.99 in stores and 40% off.  Online it's $54.99 and 30% off so not as good as a deal but still a great price.  See the sweater on Jean in a few different colors and her review as well.

I'm wearing the XXS and is a good overall fit as I like that it's slim fitting on the sides (my apple shape does not fare well with chunky knits + baggy sides.) and the sleeves are not too long.  The length is a little on the short side for me as I have a short torso and I tend to like my sweaters a little farther below my waistband to elongate it.  I passed on this but regretted it the next day (as some of you know from my facebook).  Although looking at the pictures now, I do think I look a little chunky in it so probably a good thing that I passed.  One plus was the color and it looked fantastic with my Luxe Chain Crystal Necklace!

Two other things I tried on were this Paisley Blouse (not online but same print in a button up) which was $79.99 and 40% off (Style # 60333 if you want to call stores to see if they have it.) and the Glimmer Long Sleeve Tee that you've seen on me in bronze.  Now marked down to $59.99 and 40% off in stores and 30% off online.
I'm wearing a size 0 in the Paisley Blouse.  Fit is a little loose and I could have sized down if they had it but still doable and I fell in love with the print so I took this one home with me.  In the Glimmer Tee I'm wearing an XS here which I decided was just a bit too baggy on me and since I already own the bronze in an XXS which fits a lot better, I passed on this one as well.

My phone case is this Kate Spade Resin Case that my brother and his girlfriend got me for Christmas.  So cute right?  I have quite the collection of iPhone cases now, I love changing them up!

Anyone else pick up great stuff at the J Crew sale?  I'm actually on the hunt for the silk Lucinda blouse in stores, I hope I can find it!

Also, my sister and I went a little crazy marking stuff down on our jewelry line.  Check it out now before we change our minds about the prices :)

  4. I'm wearing that exact J. Crew paisley blouse today! I'll post about it on my blog later. I bought it before the holidays on super sale in stores. They only had ONE left that was a bigger size than I would normally wear, but I am able to style it in a way that I don't mind the looser fit. It's a great blouse, especially for an office dress code. It actually looks really good with a big statement necklace too - surprising for such a busy print.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. I thought of you as I shopped J Crew this weekend...I FINALLY got the bronze glimmer tee that I had been stalking since I saw you in it! Online was out of my size for the longest but at the store, it was the ONLY one there! I think it was fate :) I also saw this sweater in other colors & I loved it, but it's too darn hot here in Florida to wear it, so I passed :(

  7. I was just talking about yellow on my blog! The yellow looks great on you but I feel you with the longer length. I don't know why the smaller sizes are shorter. Sometimes I have to size up just for that reason. The paisley is my favorite, and as always, your jewelry is great.

  10. I've gravitated towards some of the same things as you at J. Crew!! I totally fell in love with that paisley blouse when it came out, but didn't bite on it for some crazy reason. It popped back on the website in a size that is slightly bigger than I go for, but I didn't want to regret not getting it, plus there was 30% off sale items that day.
    I tried on and adored the bronze glimmer top and kick myself for not adding that pretty number to my closet. :(

  12. shut up - you DO NOT look chunky! that said, i totally understand how you feel - it's hard to not overwhelm small frames and heavy knits totally do that!

    cute finds - i really love the paisley blouse!

  17. @Erica oh good, I'm glad you got it! It's such a fun shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  18. @MJ Yeah, I wish they wouldn't shrink the length either. I much prefer longer length tops. The XS was a little longer but much too chunky on me, I looked like a marshmallow man! haha!

  19. @fshnonmymind haha, looks like all of us that got the paisley blouse had to get it a size bigger! But still so worth it, I love the print!

  20. @Michelle hahaha, I knew you'd know what I mean :) small frames and chunky knits are definitely not the most flattering!

  21. @Pauline yes! I'd love to go shopping with you too! Maybe someday if we are ever in the same city? :)
