J Crew Factory: Lace Pencil Skirt, Plaid Classic Button-Down Shirt, Striped Jacquard Dress

J.Crew Factory now has 50% off gift list items for women, men, boys and girls, online, prices as marked. But, if you go in to the actual B&M Factory or Mercantile store, everything is 50% off, not just select items. There are no exclusions. AND…if you are signed up for JCF emails you should have received a coupon for 20% off your purchase of $100 or more. All offers are good through Sunday, though I do think the 50% off all items will be extended through Black Friday, like it was last year.

A quick little update on the cute little Embroidered Sweater. A commenter was correct in stating they were Snow Otters and I found the sweater online, with all sizes in stock, style #F8776.

~ Perfect Fit Plaid Classic Button-Down Shirt, Small ~
~ Lace Pencil Skirt, size 8 ~
~ Esme Jeweled Kitten Heels, size 7 ~

I really liked the Christmas plaid of this shirt. There were only two XXS, a Small and an XL left in the store I was in. I did have a chance to stop by the Factory store and found a few more sizes in stock, though not a Medium, which I would prefer. I can fit into the Small and will just have to wear a non-padded or lined bra to combat the gaping below that center button. I can fit into a Small in button-down shirts from the Factory but feel more comfortable in a Medium.



~ Lace Pencil Skirt, size 8 ~

I really loved the fit of this lace pencil skirt. I have plenty of skirts I don’t wear but I also liked the look of it with the Plaid shirt. I have a Holiday event or party every weekend in December, some are with the same people, so I do need a few different options of my casual style for them.


~ Short-Sleeve Printed Dress, size 8 ~
~ Esme Jeweled Kitten Heels, size 7 ~

This dress is on Crew Clearance/Final Sale and would be a great work dress. The material is Poly and this does have a little ponte feel to it. The size 8 fit me very well so this is TTS.


~ Striped Jacquard Dress, size 10 ~
~ Esme Jeweled Kitten Heels, size 7 ~

I loved this dress. I am still considering it to have for an event in February but this is a great Holiday party, LBD-ish, or New Year’s Eve dress. The silhouette is the same as the Peacock Jacquard and the Metallic Dot dress. I am currently needing to size up in this fit-and-flare style so I feel more comfortable in the size 10. I do think it runs TTS though. And you can see it has pockets. Any one of the three dresses will be perfect for the Holidays, New Year’s and after.


~ Slim Plaid Flannel Shirt, Black, Small ~
~ Sequin Herringbone Pencil Skirt, size 8 ~

I found this shirt in the Men’s section. I usually wear a Small in the button-downs. I loved the coziness of the flannel and the tartan plaid. The colors are a lot more saturated than the women’s Factory and Retail versions.



~ Sequin Herringbone Pencil Skirt, size 8 ~

This wasn’t at the Mercantile store. I found this at the Factory store. It’s another option for the Holidays and fits TTS. Sizes in store were limited but online all sizes are stocked.


~ Esme Jeweled Kitten Heels, size 7 ~

I wanted to try everything on with a pair of heels and these were the only ones I could find in my small Mercantile store. They are really nice considering they are Factory. The upper is suede and the sole is man-made. The heel is a manageable 2 1/4. The jewels at the front dress them up. There’s a little gap at the heel for me in the 7 but I still think they fit TTS.



And here are a few things I’d get from the Whoa Gift List.

Are you shopping J.Crew Factory for you gifts? I have already bought a few things for me but really need to focus on my actual gift list.

Next week I’ll have reviews from J.Crew.

Happy Shopping!
