I have a few more photos from my trip to JC last week. New in the store was the Sunburst Skirt in Stripe size 2 in navy ivory.' Usually I am size 4 in this kind of skirt at J. Crew, so I would say this one fits TTS to large. As readers of my blog would know, I am a pencil skirt fan, but I really liked this one! Sorry for the photo quality. I will try to do a retake this weekend, since I will be downtown again.
The flats are the new Emma Bow Ballet Flats size 8 and 'sunbaked orange.' This is my regular shoe size. I think these flats fit similarly to the Ceces, so they are quite comfortable. These Emmas come in three other colours, but there are many more to choose from among the plain leather, patent leather, suede or even crackled metallic ones.

Next is the Crepe Shift Dress size 4 and 'bright persimmon.' I would go for the 'deep violet' or 'black' in this dress. Size 4 is my smaller dress size at J. Crew, but even this fits large on me. The fabric is quite substantial.
Lastly, the Teddie Convertibe Hobo in 'henna.' I like the size of this bag for me (I am 5'6"). It has an 8" handle drop which allows me to wear it on my shoulder even with the jacket on. The handles can be replaced with a removable shoulder strap, making this a crossbody bag.
The local stores were offering 30% off the sale items when I visited. I was able to snag the last pair of black wool Minnies in my size ($79.99 minus 30%) and a Long-Sleeve Painter Tee also in black.
