I’m so glad I was finally able to wear this sweater. As soon as I saw it online during the Early Access I clicked as fast as I could to buy it. Just a few weekends before I had seen the Crewcuts version and was so sad it wouldn’t fit me. She has a crown! And the Leggings…I die! I can’t wait to dress my besties girls in Crewcuts! They can’t say no. I’m a free babysitter.

~ Intarsia Dachshund Sweater, J Crew Factory (Scottie Dog, Free People, Holiday Doxie)~
~ Crinkle Boy Shirt in Black Check, J Crew (F21, Mango, Land’s End) ~
~ Plaza Skirt in Glen Plaid, J Crew (Factory 1, Factory 2, Talbots) ~
~ Cece Ballet Flats, J Crew ~

Apparently, everyone else loves Doxies too because this sweater as well as the Tee and other Sweater have sold out and are now just popbacks. The sweater fit TTS in a Medium for me. Especially since I knew I was going to layer under it. I chose to stay with the black-and-white theme throughout, using past retail items for the rest of the outfit.


Out of all the Gingham shirts I own this Crinkle Boy Shirt has received the most use. And this Plaza Skirt in Glen Plaid was my favorite out of all the ones offered last year. I love my Cece’s. They are the most comfortable ballet flats I own. I have several colors including the basics – black, navy and tan. They go with everything.



My style was pretty boring during the Summer being mostly shorts and tees. You’ll still see a basic style throughout the Fall, but being able to wear pants and skirts with tights is so much more fun to see.

The latest set of new J Crew Factory arrivals are very Fall-like – Sweaters, Long-sleeves, Booties. Before I share my picks and what I purchased during the Early Access I wanted to let you know I did a mock check-out with the Quilted Vest and the Gilt City coupon of 30% applied.

I saw the Dachshund Sweater in the store in the Crewcuts section and lamented about how I couldn’t fit into the largest size. I really wanted that sweater. I was excited to see an adult version of the Dachshund Sweater in the latest roll-out. Of course I ordered it. I already see myself layering the retail version of the Sleeveless Printed Blouse under it. I’d also wear it with the Plaza Skirt in Glen Plaid. I see that the Tweed version is available at the Factory so I would think the Glen Plaid version can’t be far behind.

It’s very interesting to see the Leather Pocket Tee Dress because that was a Madewell item I purchased last October. You can re-visit my Que Bella and review of the Madewell Leather Pocket T-Shirt Dress. Have you noticed any other Madewell items being made for J Crew Factory? This is the first one I’ve noticed.

I also ordered the Suede Sawyer Boots in Olive Moss. The color looks really nice online so I’m excited to see it IRL. I like the lower heel even though the style is a little Western. Those will be coming up on a Shoesday in about two weeks.
Do you have any favorite picks from the latest Factory roll-out? It looks like a retail roll-out will be happening next week.
