Yesterday I managed to make my way South again and of course I also ended up at J. Crew. The store was quite picked over, it seemed, and in retrospect, I should have gone to the downtown one. That said, I still managed to try on a few items I hadn't seen there on my previous visit.
First was the Silk-linen tie-dye cardigan (size S). The website photo doesn't do it justice, and neither does my new crackberry camera photo. I will have to remember to take the regular camera with me. Its colours are much nicer in real life. The skirt is the No. 2 pencil skirt in double-serge cotton (size 2, mauve morning colour) I blogged about in an earlier post. It was marked down to $59.99 in the store, and also received the 30% off discount on it, so I was happy.
Here I tried the skirt on again with the Leslie lace shell (size 0), which was still full price in the store, but it's on promo online.
Also new was the Ikat pencil skirt size 2. The fit is tighter than on the pencil skirts in the solid colours (see above), so you may want to size up in this one.
New to me were also the Camp pants (size 0) which are on promo on the website and the Metallic linen sweatshirt (size S). The pants fit similarly to the silk-linen slouchy pants from 2010. The sweatshirt was thin, but not sheer.
Lastly, I HAD TO try on the much talked about Maritime dress (size XS). I had tried it on before (2nd photo), and not sure why I thought I would like it better with the darker stripes. I still don't. I prefer the Rowboat dress I blogged about here to this one.
I also noticed the Indira ikat dress, but the colours in it didn't inspire me enough to try it on.
Do you like any of the new arrivals? Did you get anything during the 30% sale?
