Review: J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton

Hi Everyone!

I really like the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton from last Spring, so I was super excited to see that it is being offered in new colors this year!  I decided to grab the Casablanca Blue color during a recent 30% off promotion.  Here are two IRL pics of the skirt:

Excuse these crappy cell phone pictures.  I’m hoping that a brand new camera shows up on my doorstep soon!

I intend to style the skirt like it is styled in the website picture below:

My online personal shopper told me that this skirt will be offered in other great colors such as Warm Jade.

Review: J. Crew Polka-dot Pencil Skirt

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited when I saw the Polka-dot Pencil Skirt on the J. Crew website a week or two ago.  I decided to grab the skirt recently.  Here is the website picture:

And, here are a few IRL pictures of the skirt:

I really like this skirt.  I’m just hoping that the pattern doesn’t add weight to my bottom half.  I definitely don’t need any added weight!!

J. Crew 30% off/Free Shipping Promo

Hi Everyone!

Whoa, what another great promotion from J. Crew this morning!  I caved yesterday when the “jingle” promo was still going on and purchased the following:

The Hacking Jacket in Tipped Double-Serge Wool in Pearl Grey:

And, I also decided to grab the Perfect Shirt in Solid in Warm Jade:

Both items were on promotion before the 30%; it was a pretty sweet deal! 

I also stopped by my retail store this morning; the stores have the Tippi Sweater in some new, super cute colors!

My online personal shopper sent me an email with pictures of 3 skirts that will be available soon.  The first skirt is the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Watercolor Floral:

The wonderful Fabulous Florida Mommy posted about new J. Crew arrivals on the Net-A-Porter website here.  The capri pants in FFM’s post appear to be the same print as this skirt.

The following two skirts are called the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Basket Weave:
