J. Crew New Arrivals: What I’m Loving!

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited to see the new arrivals on the J. Crew website this morning!!! Here’s what I’m loving:

I finally got an order confirmation for the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double Serge Wool in Neon Azalea:

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this color, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this beauty!!!

I’m also loving the Dream V-Neck Sweater in Stripe I really like the following outfit that is featured on the website. I own the Nordic Blue version of the skirt from last year, but I am seriously considering the Bright Blue skirt from this year. I’ll have to see both colors IRL. Check out xoxo’s side-by-side comparison of the blue colors on her wonderful blog, Will Work 4 Shoes! here

I’m also loving the following outfit. I purchased the skirt from the last retail rollout. I reviewed the skirt here:

Finally, I’m loving the following 2 items:

J. Crew 25% Promo

Hi Everyone!

I was delighted to see the wonderful 25% off promo that J. Crew is offering! I did enough damage with the last promo, but I’m strongly considering buying the Majesty Peacoat in the beautiful Maraschino Cherry color. I can think of several outfits to wear with this beauty:

Do you own the Majesty Peacoat? What did you purchase with this promo? Do tell!

Review: J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Tinsel Tweed

Hi Everyone!

I received the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Tinsel Tweed yesterday. I really like the skirt. The problem, however, is that it was damaged right out of the package. As you can see in the second picture below, there is a snag on the skirt in the back. My wonderful hubby noticed it immediately and said, “I cannot believe the person who packaged the skirt didn’t see that snag.” I can’t believe it either.

I called CS immediately, and they’ve already sent me a new skirt. Hopefully the new skirt will be snag free!!

Here are a few IRL pics:

In these pictures, the skirt looks blue; however, it is a beautiful shade of purple. I know that there has been some discussion about the material content, particularly the acrylic in the skirt. For some reason, this doesn’t bother me. I don’t know if I’ve been drinking too much crewlade or not, but I really, really like this skirt.

Here is the website picture; I really like the styling.

J. Crew Lady Lace Love

Hi Everyone!

I received the Lady Lace Popover today, and let me tell you dear readers, it was love at first sight! And, thanks to Rose of the wonderful 1 More Shopping blog, this purchase was a *sweet* deal!

I really like the fit. I know that there has been some discussion about tight arm syndrome, but I didn’t have that problem. My only problem is that I think the sweater emphasizes my problem area, my stomach. So, a Spanx purchase is definitely in order!

Here is a quick snap of me wearing the popover with a woven underneath. Sorry for the blurry pic, but our camera is broken–ugh!

And, finally, here is my polyvore set showing one way I plan to wear the Lady Lace Popover:
