This weekend I made it downtown again and a stop at JC was in order. I had seen the Double-Cloth Sabrina Coat on my last visit, but didn't try it on. Usually I take size 4 or 6 in coats. Size 6 is large on the body for me, but I think size 4 would be tighter in the shoulders. The coat is the beautiful double-cloth fabric JC is known for and comes in six other colours as well.

Next was a new arrival, the Open Cardigan. I am wearing size S, the usual size I take in JC sweaters. This is a 3 gauge knit in lambswool, so quite substantial. It also comes in a a grey colour I no longer see on the website, as well as a 'garnet' colour. I loved this sweater a lot. I couldn't make up my mind between the 'indigo' and the 'garnet,' since they are both nice colours. I didn't find it itchy either on my arms (wearing a tee underneath).
Collection Cashmere Dolman Sweater size S in 'heather acorn.' This sweater is currently on sale on the website. It's really soft and comfortable, although I'd probably wear this with a nice pencil skirt in navy or burgundy instead of the minnies.
Lastly, the Boy Shirt in Indigo Plaid size 4, my most common shirt size at J. Crew. This was a favourite when it first appeared and it is now on sale. In the store it was an additional 30% off and the local store had plenty in stock. It's a more substantial cotton than the usual shirts I have had from JC in the past and I loved this shirt.
What else I liked at JC:
As previously mentioned, J. Crew is still offering 25% off with code GOSHOP through November 16. Canadian JCAs can get 25% off with code HELLOWORLD with no minimum through January 31, 2014.
