J. Crew - May

I have a few more photos I took on my last couple of JC visits I am sharinto share. The first one is that of the Punched-Out Eyelet Dress (size 6, classic ivory). This is the larger of my two dress sizes at J. Crew. It's a cute dress and would look pretty with a cropped cardigan or jacket - red, blue, green - or almost any other colour, really.

Next was the A-Line Skirt in Bi-Stretch Cotton (size 4, bright indigo). This is the larger of my two skirt sizes. I am not a fan of A-line skirts for myself, but I really loved the colour on this one. It has two side pockets and it is very comfortable due to the stretch content. If blue is not your colour, there are four (4) others you can chosoe from. The top is the Collarless Short-Sleeve Popover and I have already blogged about it in my previous JC post.

Another skirt, this time a pencil one, which is my favourite style. It is the Gold Foil Leaf Pencil Skirt (size 2). This is my smaller skirt size, and fits TTS to large on me. I didn't think I would like the skirt as much on as I did, so now it is on my wishlist. Unfortunately, all the photos I took of it were a bit blurry, so apologies for that. I tried it on with the Textured Beach Sweater (size S, ripe papaya), mainly because orange is one of the colours that look good on me. The sweater fits large, is all linen and has a longer back with an interesting pattern.

Lastly, the Eyelet-Sleeve Sweater (size S, navy). The body of this sweater is cotton, while the sleeves are a cotton/nylon mix. The pants are the Martie Pants and were also shown in the previous post.

That's all I have for now, but I am heading into town tomorrow for an appointment, and very likely will be stopping by JC as well.

Hope you are all having a great end of the week, and have a wonderful weekend!

Banana Republic - April

Just a very short post today with a couple of photos I took at BR during my last visit a couple of weeks ago. I haven't been there for a long time, but I was looking for a black silk blouse and lucky me I found it here. It is the Dark Silk Popover Blouse (size XS, black). For those interested, there is also a Light Silk Popover Blouse in several light colours, which would be perfect for spring. The blouse was on sale in the store, and an additioanl 40% off sale items applied, so it turned out to be a great deal. It fits large, so I sized down to an XS for a more fitted look. I am trying it on with the Rugby Stripe Lace Pencil Skirt (size 4, black). This is my usual size skirt at BR. It's 100% cotton and would be great for the summer.

The other item that got my attention was the  Denim Cropped Top (size S, indigo). This top is my regular top size at BR. I loved the colour a lot!

How about you? Have you been to Banana Republic lately? What did you think? Please share!

Thanks for visiting, and have a great Wednesday, everyone!

J. Crew - April (III)

I think this has to have been my longest absence from blogging yet. I managed to dodge colds and the flu all winter long, only to be hit by the flu last week. Today I managed a trip downtown to meet up with a friend, and together we hit JC. I looked at a few pairs of pants, some of which I have trie on before. One such pair was the Martie Pants again. I tried these on before back in March, but this time I felt like trying on a spring colour, so 'aztec rust' size 4 it was. The tee is the Embroidered Linen Lace Tee (size S, heather grey ivory) and fits large on me, even though this is my regular tee size at JC. As the name implies, it is all linen and has an embroidery on the shoulders and sleeves. This tee comes in four (4) other colours as well.

Next were the Falling Pansies Pants (size 2, rusty clay multi). This is the smallest of the two pant sizes I wear at J. Crew. They are all poly, so wrinkle resistant, and would be a fun pair to wear during the summer. The back of the waist band is elastic and there are two size pockets as well as two back ones. The top is the Collarless Short-Sleeve Popover (size S, white), which seems to be sold out on the website right now. The store had plenty, however, so ask a VPS to find one for you. I was happy to find out this top was not see-through and that it fitted quite nicely on. It's all cotton and machine washable.

Embroidered Herringbone Tee (size S, pale petal azalea) is a cute cotton with poly embroidery tee. There are three other colour ways, but this pink combo was my favourite. The pants were the Slim Cargo Pants (size 4, coal grey), and I tried them also back in March. This time they were on sale, and another 40% applied, so they were a great deal.

That's about it for now, but I have a few more photos for later this week. What else I am liking at JC  right now:
