J. Crew - March (III)

I have a few more photos left from my previous trips to JC. First is the Zip Pencil Skirt from a previous rollout. I am trying size 4 below, which is the larger of my 2 skirt sizes at J. Crew. It is a bit roomy on me.

Since size 4 fit large, I decided to try on size 2 as well in the 'deep blue' colour. The smaller size is a better fit on me.

Tipped Twill Jacket (size 4, 'classic ivory'). This is my usual jacket size at J. Crew. The fabric has some elasthane in it, so it stretches a bit. I thought it was a fun, sporty looking piece.


Lastly, the Flounce Tank Top (size S, pink sand), my usual tee and top size. It's a cute top, a little bit sheer, and comes in three (3) other colours as well. The pants are the Ryder Pants and I blogged about them here before.

That was all for now. I am lookign forward to some new arrivals for spring at J. Crew. How about you?

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far, and have a safe Monday out there!

Gap - March

I haven't stopped by the Gap in what seemed a very long time, but their latest arrivals tempted me to finally do so. I was happy to see they had the Henley Drawstring Dress in store. The favourite colour 'bordeaux' was missing in my size, so I tried on the 'deep true navy.' This dress is cotton/rayon 60/40 and fits TTS on me (size S).

The other dress I liked from the new arrivals was the Eyelet-Stripe Fit & Flare Dress. I am wearing size 4 and 'true black' below. Would love it if it were a couple of inches longer on me and if it were less tight across the shoulders. I could barely do the zipper up on this dress.

Stripe Slit Maxi Skirt (size M, navy stripe) seemed to be very popular with the young crowd when I was in the store. I sized up one size as the S seemed a bit too narrow. This skirt is all cotton and would be a great addition to the summer or vacation wardrobe.

Lastly, also a favourite, the Leather Tote Crossbody in a bright orange colour called 'lettermen orange' which doesn't seem to be available on the website any longer. The tote is not lined and seems quite roomy.

That's about it for now. Have you been to the Gap lately? Did you find any great deals? Please share!

Thank you for stopping by here and have a great Thursday, everyone!

Madewell New Arrivals Picks

Early this morning I received an e-mail from Madewell about their new arrivals but I didn't have a chance to check them out until now. This cotton/linen Raglan Crop Top in Honeycomb Floral seemed to have an interesting pattern and colours.

I loved the side-tie detail of the Chambray Side-Tie Crop Tee:
