J. Crew - August (II)

I have had a few more photos from a couple of JC visits for a while but I haven't had the chance to post them up until now. First is the pretty Sleeveless Lace Shift Dress (size 6, navy black). I didn't think much of it when I saw it on the hanger, but I quickly changed my mind when I tried it on. It is a bit low cut in the front, but I didn't mind that. Size 6 fitted a bit large and I think I could easily size down to a 4 in this dress.

Another dress, this time the Cap-Sleeve Dress in Donegal Wool (size 6, pink). I loved the colour and the cut of this dress a lot. It would be a great one for the office, given that the length is also appropriate. The dress is fully lined.

A new sweater, the Tweed Pullover Sweater (size S, navy multi) is all merino wool. The knit has a metallic thread through it and the sweater fits TTS. Loved it.

The Embellished-Yoke Striped T-Shirt (size S, heather ivory) fits TTS on me. I liked the tiny colourful stones fused directly onto the fabric on this one. 

Lastly, a favourite shirt, the Boyfriend Shirt in Rockport Plaid (size 4, cream navy). It is a very soft cotton flannel, machine washable. I loved this shirt a lot and it is on my wishlist.

That's about all for now. How about you? Have you visited JC lately? What did you think?

Hope your week is going well. Don't forget to check my instagram for different kind of photos.

J. Crew Factory - August (II)

Last weekend I ended up at the Factory store again. I had my eye on the Factory Striped Infinity Shirt , which I tried on before here. I thought it might go nicely with the Pixie Pants I got earlier in the day (also on promo minus 25%) and a pair of ballet flats. Just my luck, the shirt was on sale at $34.50. In the left photo I am trying the shirt with the Factory Perforated Belt (size S, bronzed brown). The 'bronzed brown' looks more like a burgundy to me.

Next I tried on the beautiful Factory Printed Stretch Cotton Skirt (size 4, multi fuchsia). The print is a pretty print stretchy cotton with a beautiful sheen:

The sweater I am wearing is the Factory Three-Quarter Sleeve Grid-Stitch Sweater (size S, flamingo) and comes in a 'black white' version as well. It is all cotton and fits TTS.

Lastly, the  Factory Funnelneck Sweatshirt (size S, heather charcoal black). I have a cropped version of this from a couple of years ago and I love it. I also love this dark grey and the fact that it's cotton. The sweatshirt fits TTS on me.

What else I like at the Factory store right now:
How about you? Have you visited the Factory store lately? What did you get? Please share!

Hope your week went by fast, just like mine did. :) I started a new job and I can't believe it's weekend already! Have a great weekend, everyone!

J. Crew - August

A couple of weeks ago I visited J. Crew to check some of the latest out. One top that stood out was the Inset Embellished Tank Top (size S, navy). The fabric is all cotton, and the little sparkly dots are pieces of bonded glass. I loved the navy on me, but it also comes in 'pale petal' and 'ivory heather metal.' The Linen Cargo Pencil Skirt (size 4, dark ecru) was reviewed before and you may have seen it here or here.

Cap-Sleeve Marble Print Top (size 4) is my usual top size at JC. I was suprised to see this was poly, which I am not crazy about. If you like the pattern , there is also a Chiffon Dress in Marble Print (in silk), as well as a pair of Gemma Flats.

Embroidered Tunic Tee (size XS,  white multi) is all cotton, and was a surprise for me, as I didn't think much of it seeing on the rack. I thought it was a nice looking top. It fits large, so I would size down in it.

Soft Lame Shirtdress (size 4, metallic champagne) is a viscose/nylon/poly fabric and as the name of the dress implies, it has a metallic sheen. It is a bit short on me, but it also comes in tall sizes if you like it longer.

Peyton Bag (warm flame) is a beautiful red and a good size for my height. The leather is quite soft to the feel and the bag is quite roomy.

Lastly, the Flannel Boyfriend Shirt in Pacey Plaid (size 2). This is my smaller of the shirt sizes at J. Crew. I loved the colours of the plaid and the softness of the cotton a lot.

That's all for now. I was at JC again yesterday and managed to get a couple of things with the current promo. How about you? Anything of interest at JC for you lately? Please share.

Hope you all had a great weekend and have a great Monday out there!
