OOTD: Vibrant Flame and Heather Dark Grape

Hi Everyone!

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Here is a quick OOTD post. I saw the following items together in a J. Crew display window in Cincinnati a month ago. So, I decided to try it.

The pencil skirt is from J. Crew circa 2008; I paired the skirt with the Tippi Sweater in Heather Dark Grape and the white stretch perfect shirt. Here are a few pics:

Oh Happy Day: J. Crew Bella Jacket!

Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers!!

A couple of weeks ago, the wonderful shopwithm posted information about an eBay listing on the equally wonderful J. Crew Aficionada blog. Boy, oh boy, did M make my day! The listing was for a NWT Bella Jacket in Neon Azalea, size 12 Tall. I don’t need a tall, but I snatched this baby up for a decent “best offer” price. I can always roll up the sleeves. Thanks to shopwithm, I have the one color of the bella jacket that had initially slipped through my hands!

Here are a few IRL pics:

Now, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can find the shirt (or one similar to it) that is paired with the jacket in the following image:

What is your most recent Ebay “old school” J. Crew score? Do tell!

P.S. I highly recommend the seller who sold me this jacket, “colorsquare.” She has a few more NWT bella jackets listed on eBay.

J. Crew 25% off promo

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited to see another J. Crew 25% off promo this morning. I’m glad that I didn’t bite on the outerwear promo earlier this week. Here is what I’m considering grabbing with the current promotion:

The Stadium-Cloth Elements Coat is at the top of my list. I wish, however, that the Navy color was on promotion!! I really like the website image:

I’m also considering the Blythe blouse in silk in the Maraschino Cherry color. I really like the following outfit combination that features the Blythe blouse:

And, finally, I’m thinking of grabbing the Rhea popover in paisley

What is on your list? Do tell!

Review: Talbots Lyla Suede Tuxedo Flats

Hi Everyone!

I tried to get this post done yesterday, but a stubborn migraine kept me from doing so. I stopped by Talbots a couple of weeks ago when they were offering 50% off of one item. Unfortunately, I walked out of the store without trying the adorable Lyla Suede Tuxedo Flats:

Recently, I got a 30% off best customer postcard in the mail, so I stopped by the store to try these beauties on. I LOVE these shoes!! Here are a few IRL pics:

Check these shoes out on the wonderful shopwithm here and the lovely Sparrows & Sparkles here

Also, Talbots is currently having a promotion on shoes and accessories online. What do you think of the Lyla Suede Tuxedo Flats?
