Yay! Not only are the J Crew Fall arrivals now in store but I received my rewards card today too!

Below are pictures…I’ll post better ones of the purchases later and add more comments but I wanted to get these out here.

Silk Frances Cami-Deep Rose Sz 6 (a little snug around the arms for me, got an 8)
Stretch Twill Minnie Pant – Black Sz 8 (very bunchy around the crotch and ankles & too big in waist, got a 6)

Merino Wool Evening Primrose Sweater – Burnished Olive Sz M (not online, think only B&M)
Wearing over Frances Cami


With Velvet Eden Blazer – Iris Sz 8

Stretch Wool Schoolboy Blazer -Heather Carbon, Sz 6 (I think)

    Thanks for posting IRL photos. Is the Evening Primrose sweater just shades of gray and the greenish hue, or are there shades of blue or purple along with the gray?

    It does look purple but it is only various shades of gray with the "spiced olive" (if I'm going to use the correct J Crew color…).

    Hmm, don't think I can pull it off if it's just gray and spiced olive. Oh well, money that can be spend on something that *will* work for me.

    Thanks! Love your blog.

    Great IRL pics! Seeing you in the Eden blazer makes me want to buy it! I have become obsessed with it!

    I really do like the blazer a lot, especially in the darker colors. It just doesn't get that cold in South TX to wear it enough. Still debating though…

    Thank you for the pics! I just got my rewards card and I'm making a list for Saturday. My B&M is small, they probably won't have many of the items I want, but I can get on the red phone. The evening primrose sweater lookslike a must-have for me.

    Omg, you have the cutest haircut. You look great in the Frances. I love that blouse. I like your deco dots outfit. Very cute. Looking forward to your final selections 🙂

    Thanks for the IRL photos. I was very curious about the boatneck tee. Does it fit tts?

    Thanks Gigi.

    Anon-As you can see it pulls (more than I like) in the chest area but otherwise it's TTS.

    Thanks for the great pics! I was especially curious how "Mars" looked in person, since we've all been lamenting the lack of a true JC red…guess it's still lacking… 🙂
