Pictures are up…!
Just a quick post…Got a “few” things at the second Fall roll-out at J Crew. I’ll post pics soon but most of them are on the web/blogosphere somewhere.
Two dogs tee in (Medium)…Saw this in an early Fall preview and loved it.
Slub cotton embroidered flowers tee (Medium)…When I first saw it, I was reminded a little of the Chiffon Rose Tee.
Mohair Souffle’ Cardigan in Heather Grey (Medium)…It’s lightweight for where I live and I’m fond of mohair.
Dressy Jersey Ruffle Neck in Heather Latte (Small)…I sized down in this which I NEVER do, but after buying another jersey dress from the summer in Medium I realized it was a tad too big. Great for working at home when I want to get out of shorts & tees and I can still run around town in it.
Silk Sirrah Dress in Navy (6)…Very cute and perfect for now and “cooler” weather with a cardi or the Mohair Cardi.
w/a different belt..
So, it was our Tax Free Weekend in Texas and my store offered you to come pick out what you wanted and they would hold it until Friday. Then they’d charge your card and ship it out to you. Easy shopping without the crowds. I knew I had to go back to that mall to get a few things for the boy so I asked that they hold it for me to pick-up. Well, they didn’t have my stuff when I went to pick it up today. (so sad)…Someone had accidentally shipped it out to me. So I ended up getting a $20 GC (YAY!) for my trouble. While there, they had even more new items out that weren’t there on Wednesday (or maybe I missed them).
I found the Shirred Wool Skirt in Heather Carbon and Black. It is so cute. They also had the Felted Wool Bistro Mini. I wanted the Heather Carbon but they only had a 4 and they had a 6 in the Black. I tried on both. I haven’t been in a size 4 in YEARS! Well…it fit! IT FIT! I literally squealed in the dressing room. The 6 was comfy too but I wanted the “Grey” and the length looked the same. I was ecstatic.
The thing I like about it is that it is lightweight, which is what I need. The bistro mini was a little heavier than I wanted it to be and I like the swinginess of the Shirred Wool Skirt. I have been purchasing a lot of straight mini’s so this was a good compromise (& fit!).
I also bought the Haberdashery shirt in a Grey Dot (not sure of the exact color) and thinking of pairing it with the wool skirt & the Wool Pencil Skirt. (UPDATE:: ummm…so maybe not…too much grey, but it will look good with jeans.)
Here’s what I want but will surely have to order online.
Wool Ruffle Jacket in Rosebud-This looks like it will sell out fast. It’s really pretty.
Printed Antique Ruffle Top
Fishnet Anklets (Thinking of pairing them with my new Patent Oxfords.)
Cashmere lined leather gloves (any color really)
I’ve rambled (maybe to cover for the lack of posting). I’ll post pics soon.
