Last year J Crew had some “sequin/embellished” tees of a motorcycle and a bulldog. I think they came out around the same time as the Chiffon Rose tee. I bought the motorcycle tee but not the bulldog. I thought about that puppy a few days ago and now wished I would have bought that too. I searched ebay and couldn’t even find a used one. Gone forever you cute little bulldog.
Or so I thought…
I went to my area outlet mall and stopped by J Crew. The first thing I saw was a bulldog tee, with embellishment. Yay! Score! And 25% off! I looked closer and it wasn’t the exact bulldog tee but his little sister…ha ha ha. The bulldog has a cute little pink bow. She’s precious. I quickly scooped it up and was tempted to buy the rest just so no one else could have her.
I looked around and saw some cute stuff. Some Victoria ruffle cami’s in purple, ivory and gray, various cardigans, tees and button down shirts. I bought some jewelry, a long/boyfriend cardi in olive and, of course, the bulldog tee.
Here she is.
I haven’t forgotten about the better IRL pics of my fall arrival purchases but it won’t be until this weekend before I get to it.
Have a great day! I will, wearing my little bulldog.
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)

What I wore…Olive Slub Twisted V-Neck, Deco Dots mini, leather belt, leopard flip-flops.
I’ll post better pics of what I purchased along with prices later this evening.
J Crew & Ebay, of course…I’m going on a shopping ban next week. I’ll only spend money on new clothes, shoes or accessories if I have been given it (birthday is tomorrow) or from sells on ebay. Otherwise, no más compras para esta chica. (Sounds better in Spanish, I think.) Self-imposed, yes…but also because hubby is on medical leave starting today and will be home for at least three weeks. Can’t have him asking “Who’s that?” when the UPS guy comes knocking, can I?
I received my latest (and LAST!) J Crew order today along with some ebay purchases (soaps from B&BW).
Silk Indigo Floral Blouse – Sz 8
I really loved the print on this the first time I saw it online. The skirt looks gorgeous too but I think I’ll get more use out of the blouse. I purchased a size up since I noticed the armholes on the model online looked a bit small and I’m glad I did. It does fit a little small in the underarm area. The print was almost like the one online. I know sometimes it “shifts” around.
Rosette Tee in Pewter – Sz M
Slub cotton twisted V-Neck Tee
I bought this in the tan color and it went well with my Delfine Pencil Skirt. I love green and this color was too pretty to pass up. IRL it looks just as pretty.
I purchased this in-store last week.
Dual Rose Ribbon Tee in Gray
I originally saw this on JCBelleMarie in the Blue and White. I didn’t like the look or feel of the tee in those colors but the gray seems nicer, softer even.
On another note, I am on my 5th week of South Beach and have reached my goal of losing 10 pounds by my birthday (tomorrow/30th). I’m actually holding steady at 10 lbs. I still have more to lose but I have noticed all my shorts (mostly J Crew) are fitting a little looser. I purchased a pair of the tweed Bermuda’s (not listed online) in a 10 since the leg and booty made it run 2 sizes too small and it fits loose now. Today I also started taking the Bragg’s ACV, which I first heard about here. The taste, yucky; but I drank all I was supposed too. The water really should be cold like Gigi said. It does make a difference.
Tomorrow, I’m having lunch at the Mariposa cafe at Neiman’s with my son. Can’t wait! I’ll try to stay away from the Shoe Salon but it may be hard since the sale is still going on.
