J. Crew Factory - July

The week before last I was at the airport and swung by the new outlet there to check out the Factory store. Almost the entire merchandise was 50% off. The sale section was an additional 50% off as well.

Factory Plaid Gauze Popover Shirt (size S, blue mint ivory) fits TTS to large on me. I loved the more substantial gauze fabric and the beautiful blue of this shirt. It`s all cotton and machine washable.

Another pretty shirt, the Factory Classic Button-Down Shirt in Printed Cotton (size S, tan) fist small on me, so I would definitely size up in this one, especially since it is all cotton, so it might shrink a little.

I really liked the idea of the Factory Shimmer T-shirt (size M, navy gold), but it turned out a little bit too shiny for me. The skirt I am trying on is the Factory Lace Skirt (size 8, vibrant flame). I sized up 2 sizes than usual to be able to pull it right down on my hips for a bit of extra length. It`s still too short on me, unfortunately.

Factory Metallic Crab Collector T-shirt (size M, ivory). Cute design and thicker fabric than the regular retail store counterparts, it`s made of cotton.

Lastly, my favourite piece, the Factory Short-sleeve Linen Sweater (size M, pozzoli pink). This pink is flattering on my pale skin and I liked the fit of the sweater. As the name says, it is all linen and feels comfortable against the skin. I have already worn it a couple of times since I have taken these photos. :)

That is all for now, but I am headed to the factory store again this coming Monday with a visiting friend. Seen anything you like there lately? Please share.

Thank you for dropping by, even though I barely have time to blog these days. :)

J. Crew New Arrivals Picks

Fall new arrivals have made their debut on the JC website and as usual, I am picking my favourites. Although it is still quite warm outside and making it hard to think about fall, I can always make my wish list.

First of all, the Lace T-shirt would make a nice layer underneath a blazer or a sweater. It is all cotton, and comes in a second colourway as well.

Tie-neck Top in Shirting Stripe is a cotton & silk mix and looks pretty:

Another top I love is the Perfect Shirt with Bee Embellishment:

"Paris" Destination Art T-shirt will likely sell out quickly. There are several other 'destinations' as well. :)

Ruffles seem to be back in full force at J. Crew this fall, and here's the Tippi Sweater with Ruffles. I never thought I'd see this one, but it comes in a couple of other colours as well.

Too cute to pass up, I think this is the one Tippi I will get this fall:

There are a few more picks I like, but I think I will stop here for now.

How about you? Did you check them out yet? What did you think?

Early this morning I noticed an e-mail from my online VPS alerting me of the next roll-out. The August roll-out usually has a large fall styles launch, and this year will be no different.

The print of the month is 'Colorful Brushstroke,' and can be found in the pretty dress below, as well as a top, a skirt and a scarf.
