J. Crew - September

I have a few more photos from my previous visits to JC. One of the newer items I tried on was the Merino Striped Sweater-Dress (size S, navy ivory). The dress fits TTS and is currently on sale. I love wearing sweater-dresses with leggings in the winter, and this one is on my wishlist.

Next I have the Embellished Scoopneck T-Shirt (size S, orchid smoke). This is also my tee size at JC. Unfortunately the photo is a bit blurry and doesn't do the embellishments justice. They look much nicer up close. It is all cotton but hand washable.

Embellished Perfect Shirt in Classic Stripe (size 4, navy). I loved this shirt a lot. It has thin stripes and applied small sparkly stones which have been hot fused onto the fabric.

Lastly, a shirt I tried on before and which liked quite a bit, so I decided to take it home with me. It is the Vertical-Striped Shirt (size 4, cerulean cove). The pants are some of my favourite winter casual pants, the Pixies (size 2, black). This is my regular size in these types of pants at JC. Since I owned a previous model (the Jodhpur ones), I know I will be getting a lot of wear out of them. One way I plan to wear these is with the Factory Striped Infinity Shirt, which I got a couple of weeks ago.

That's all for now. How about you? Are you taking advantage of the really good deals out there? If so, please share!

Hope you are having a good start of the week, and happy and safe Wednesday, everyone!

J. Crew - August (II)

I have had a few more photos from a couple of JC visits for a while but I haven't had the chance to post them up until now. First is the pretty Sleeveless Lace Shift Dress (size 6, navy black). I didn't think much of it when I saw it on the hanger, but I quickly changed my mind when I tried it on. It is a bit low cut in the front, but I didn't mind that. Size 6 fitted a bit large and I think I could easily size down to a 4 in this dress.

Another dress, this time the Cap-Sleeve Dress in Donegal Wool (size 6, pink). I loved the colour and the cut of this dress a lot. It would be a great one for the office, given that the length is also appropriate. The dress is fully lined.

A new sweater, the Tweed Pullover Sweater (size S, navy multi) is all merino wool. The knit has a metallic thread through it and the sweater fits TTS. Loved it.

The Embellished-Yoke Striped T-Shirt (size S, heather ivory) fits TTS on me. I liked the tiny colourful stones fused directly onto the fabric on this one. 

Lastly, a favourite shirt, the Boyfriend Shirt in Rockport Plaid (size 4, cream navy). It is a very soft cotton flannel, machine washable. I loved this shirt a lot and it is on my wishlist.

That's about all for now. How about you? Have you visited JC lately? What did you think?

Hope your week is going well. Don't forget to check my instagram for different kind of photos.

J. Crew Factory - August (II)

Last weekend I ended up at the Factory store again. I had my eye on the Factory Striped Infinity Shirt , which I tried on before here. I thought it might go nicely with the Pixie Pants I got earlier in the day (also on promo minus 25%) and a pair of ballet flats. Just my luck, the shirt was on sale at $34.50. In the left photo I am trying the shirt with the Factory Perforated Belt (size S, bronzed brown). The 'bronzed brown' looks more like a burgundy to me.

Next I tried on the beautiful Factory Printed Stretch Cotton Skirt (size 4, multi fuchsia). The print is a pretty print stretchy cotton with a beautiful sheen:

The sweater I am wearing is the Factory Three-Quarter Sleeve Grid-Stitch Sweater (size S, flamingo) and comes in a 'black white' version as well. It is all cotton and fits TTS.

Lastly, the  Factory Funnelneck Sweatshirt (size S, heather charcoal black). I have a cropped version of this from a couple of years ago and I love it. I also love this dark grey and the fact that it's cotton. The sweatshirt fits TTS on me.

What else I like at the Factory store right now:
How about you? Have you visited the Factory store lately? What did you get? Please share!

Hope your week went by fast, just like mine did. :) I started a new job and I can't believe it's weekend already! Have a great weekend, everyone!
