OK, I lied. There is only one pink item in the bunch, but it's my favourite of all the things I tried on. It's the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Vintage Tweed size 2 (top photo) and size 4 (bottom photo). I have a thick denim shirt tucked in, but I still felt the skirt was a tighter fit than the No. 2 Pencil Double-Serge Wool Skirt I blogged about in the previous post. The Martina Patent Wedges I also blogged about in the previous post.
There has been much talk about the Hacking Jacket in Herringbone on various blogs. See audreybella's blog here and shopwithm's blog here. I am trying out size 4 in charcoal colour. It's a tighter fit than most of my size 4 jackets from J. Crew. It is well made and it has a lining and blue piping (see photo below). If I were to choose though, I would go with a different jacket I tried on earlier called Nouvelle Jacket in Super 120s.
And an unexpected love for me too, to quote shopwithm, were the Cafe Capris in Houndstooth Wool. They fitted right on and the wool is beautiful. This is a size 2.
Lastly, the Dream-Ribbed Yoga Cardigan in size XS and heather acorn. This is one size smaller than I normally wear in sweaters. It's nice and soft due to the cashmere content. Overall, I liked it, and hope for a sale on it soon.
And here's the Brompton Bucket Bag. It's a bit bigger than I expected. Do all J. Crew bags seem bigger in real life than on the website, or is it just me?
