I was in training for most of the week but there was time to visit the J Crew Factory Store. I was a bit underwhelmed walking in but grabbed a few things to try on for the blog.
JCF Carson Short – 6, Bright Plum
See the retail version on me here (slate) and here (plum). This was a good fit in the 6 and I love the brightness of the plum but I already have the retail version. All colors were in-store. I don’t recall if there was a % off.
JCF Printed Perfect Shirt – M, Light Berry – This was a little wide on me. The arms were too long as well.
JCF Coralie Cami – 6, Mink, #38798, $64.50 plus 40% off – This was a good fit. I never tried on the retail version and, unfortunately don’t recall what the other colors were. I think there might have just been the Papaya color.
JCF Cropped Matchstick Jeans – Sz 30
JCF Tweed Unagi Pencil Skirt – 6, SPA, $89.50 plus 30% off – I know this was previously online but it must have sold out. I am not a fan of the Factory version of this skirt. The fit was fine but the material is thin and seemed a bit cheap to me.
JCF Printed Sylvie Skirt – 8 – I have the retail version of this skirt and I have to say I like the Factory version better. The color is a lot brighter and more saturated.
I think I’ll be keeping the Factory version so if someone is looking for the retail version in a 6, email me with an offer.
I also stopped by the Ann Taylor Factory Store since it was right next door to J Crew. I haven’t been in there in a long time but this skirt in the window caught my eye. It looked like lace until I saw it up close. It’s crochet and gorgeous. There’s also a dress that is just stunning. I regret not trying it on. I brought home the 8 Petite.
AND! I found the Peep-Toe Perfect Pumps in Porcini. I love this color and even though these fit just a teeny bit big (size 7), I brought them home with me anyway.
It looks like we have started our transition to warmer weather here in South Texas. It should be shorts and flip-flops all weekend long so I’m sending warm weather thoughts to you Northern readers out there!
