It’s now habit to swing by the J Crew Factory Store every time I’m in the area. I’m glad I did. I found some Retail favorites I missed out on. I did not see or find the Lace Cami Dina blogged about here. That was the first thing I looked for. I have seen Collection pieces before at that outlet so I was really hoping to find it. I have added the name, style number and price on most of the pics. I was able to take all of them with flash (I asked to be placed in the “big” dressing room which is also in the back.)

Everything had either a percent or dollar off but I don’t remember. I did buy some of these so I’ll check my receipt later and update the post.
Tees – I didn’t try these on but did snap some pics.

Two Dogs Tee

Embroidered Flowers Tee – The original came in ivory. The Warm Blush is pretty.

Rooster Tee

Celosia Cardigan (I can’t remember if this cotton or merino wool but I did buy it so I’ll update later.)
This came in Cinnamon Spice, Navy, Burnished Olive and two other colors that I can’t remember.

Silk Tiered Cami – This came in Ivory, Black, Blackberry (rich purple color), and Black Floral Print.
This is a Size 4.

Rose Skirt (I don’t know the name of the original print of this. Wasn’t it a dress?)
Size 6

Blushed Tweed Pencil Skirt – Size 6

Viscose Tango Top – This is the light pink color (and the only one I didn’t take with flash).
Size Small – This came in Dark Grey, Light Grey, Cream and Pink and was $5.00 off.

Paisley Tunic – Once I realized it wasn’t the Perfect shirt I wasn’t too interested in it.

Ikat Dot Pencil Skirt – I think this was cotton. I need to start taking pics of the material tag too.
Size 6

Velvet Eden Blazer – I missed out on this color and have been wanting it badly. It’s such a rich purple. The outlet had this in the Dusty Blossom and Navy. The lining is navy but doesn’t have a contrast trim. This was also 40% off.
Size 6

Hope you are enjoying your weekend! I’m gathering items to post a blog sale in the next few days so watch for that!

Ok…Here’s part two.

J Crew Textured Garden V-neck Tee  

J Crew Cotton Linen Scarf – I found this in the men’s sale section when looking for some things for The Boy.
My J Crew store got in the other two prints of the canvas totes. I preferred this over the other (two ladies sitting next to each other with one cardigan/sweater wrapped around them – I think a cat was in the pic too).
Banana Republic – Dina Gladiator Wedge
I should have never walked into Neiman’s. Christian Louboutin was having their trunk show (and no one told me!!!). I looked at and picked up EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. Of course, anyone who can wear his 5+ inches with or without a platform is brave.
I decided on these.
Hola Flat w/Pony Zebra Calf Hair
I did not stop by GAP, Anthropologie, American Eagle or White House/Black Market like I had planned too. Not sure I’ll have time today or not. But I guess I don’t really need to and I think my bank account needs to recover from the shock.
Have a great day!

Oh boy…did I break my ban and good. Like I said in my previous post, stress is a big trigger for me to go shopping. And I had a long stressful day Wednesday. So instead of waving at the outlet malls while driving by I stopped…and only at J Crew. I’m glad I did. They had just received a new shipment on Tuesday and had lots and lots of goodies.

Here we go…What I did not get…
Floral Belts

Chambray Shift Dress with Pockets – This style of dress came in several different colors (that I can’t remember) as well as the Fresco print. I had to size down to a 4 because the 6 was too big.

I’m calling this the Minimal Rosette Tee. The rosettes are not all over the shirt like the original tee (which I didn’t have a pictures of.)

The Beaded Crawfish Tee – The outlet version is on the left and the original on the right. The beads used are a little different and not as many were used compared to the original version.

Beaded Zebra Tee – Again, almost an exact match to the original. The beading is a little different. I think the white stripes were beaded on the original but they are not on the outlet version.

I did not get a picture of the Fresco print mini. The material is different from the original. It feels smoother and lighter. That print was on everything in the outlet – dress, tunic blouse, Silk Garland Cami (lots of colors), cardigan, skirt and possibly even shorts.

Here’s what I did get.
Retro Chambray City Fit Saturday Pant – I sized down to a 4 in this. Most of the things I tried on in my “normal” sizes of Medium and 6 were too big. The 4s and Smalls fit much better.
$54.50 plus $10 off

Solid Stretch 3/4 Sleeve Kelley Shirt in Navy (CNA)
These shirts were $39.50 plus 25% off. Lots of colors and stripes)

Solid Stretch 3/4 Sleeve Shirt in Fresh Plum (FPL)

Printed Silk Garland Cami in Fresco Print – I sized to a Small in this.
$64.50 plus $5 off select camis

Silk Garland Cami in Navy – The tag said CNA.
These were in a lot of colors (Light Pewter, Light Green, Ivory, another lighter blue/green).

Dressy Jersey Ruffle Dress in Olive – the tag said PAR???
$64.50 plus $10 off Lounge Dresses – Also came in black

Michelle Cardigan in Ivory – other colors were Fresh Plum (like above), olive green, black?, Light Pewter.
$59.50 plus 40% off

Hemp Pencil Skirt – I sized to a 4 in this as well and loved the fit and length (no alterations needed). They had black, ivory and Fresh Plum.

I also bought a few Perfect Fit S/S tees ($9.99) in white and olive and they had all colors. The outlet “Jackie” was there in all colors for Spring. They also had the Havona tank/cami, Broadcloth Scalloped Shell, Fan Eyelet Mini, and lots of shorts 3 in/5 in (no bermudas that I could find for women) in many colors and critter prints.

So as you can see, I did some damage. My other purchases coming up in the next post.
