The Tilda Oxford Rhinestone Top is adorable in person. Sorry I didn't grab a better picture of the rhinestones on the collar, J Crew doesn't have a better close up either but it's so pretty. I love the detail. I wasn't so sure about how high it went up on my neck, I felt like it was choking me, so I didn't get it (but if it goes on sale, I might reconsider!). I'm loving the new Liberty print and immediately gravitated towards the toothpick jeans in the print. Super cute but a bit pricey. I have a few pairs of J Crew jeans and they've all stretched pretty badly on me (only after 1-2 wears) and I don't want to be spending $150 on a pair of jeans that stretch so much but if they go on sale, I'll definitely be picking them up as I adore the print! Oh, the sweater I'm wearing on the right is an old J Crew sweater I was already wearing that day, I just wanted to see how it looked like with a sweater over the rhinestone top which I would probably wear like this most of the time anyway.
Lots of pics, click through to see the rest of my shopping trip and buys...
I just blogged about this sweater and I really wanted to love it but I ended up not liking it. The collar is much too stiff and wouldn't sit nicely. You see how it kind of stands up at the back? I couldn't get it to lay flat on the around my neck. I also didn't love the wide stripes on me. So glad I tried it on before I ordered it online as I definitely didn't love it.
First the new arrivals. I'm a sucker for cutesy prints so had to try on the Starry Sweater and the cutest bow jeans! The Starry sweater was too similar to my bow sweater that I got at Madewell earlier in the fall so I passed but I'm totally regretting not buying the cute bow jeans. I love them, however I do have a problem with printed pants/colored jeans at the moment and vowed not to buy any more but we shall see, I may return for these. :)
Like I said, the sale was an addtional 40% off so lots of great deals to be had! The Spectrum sweater is not on sale online but was marked down to $69.99 (the prices I list are all before the extra discount). I liked the chunky knit but it made me look a bit boxy so passed. The Heartstripe sweater that I've been eyeing was on sale for $59.99. And I randomly picked up these striped dot pants that I didn't initially love but after trying them on, I knew I could pair them with lots of stuff I had at home. And the best part? They were $39.99! (and if you're wondering, I ended up getting these because they are pants - not jeans - so they can be dressed up a bit more and I don't have as many pants as I do jeans!)
