OK, it's a bit of a stretch, since the temperatures outside have only peaked at plus 9 deg. C today, but I couldn't help myself from not trying on the new Braidee sandals that I acquired on the last 40% off promo (on top of the sale price). I was a bit wary of buying shoes without first trying them on, but I was pleasantly surprised to see these fitted perfectly. Normally I am an 8M in shoes. The colour is called Provence pink, but it is more of a nude with pink tones than the pink I see on my monitor. It's almost the colour of my pasty skin.
The Factory printed pencil skirt is the re-invention of the Floral Pastiche skirt form the summer of 2010, this time in cotton with 2% spandex. The top is the Gossamer wool tank and unfortunately, I discovered not one, but TWO holes in it just as I was trying it on. Since it is a final sale item, I am stuck with it and am very disappointed that I can't even wear it.
*Edited to add that I have contacted J. Crew and they have credited my card back, and also was told they will be looking for another replacement tank for me. So far I am pleased with how quickly they tried to rectify the situation.
Other lovelies to review in a future post.
Wishing all a happy Valentine's Day!
