In the B&M…

I meant to post this last week about the “Mauve” Carnation Cluster Tee and the “Pumpkin” Merino Swirly Ruffle Cardigan.

Carnation Cluster Tee – Apparently the “Mauve”/Pink-y color is only in stores. I tossed the tag so I don’t have the actual color or style #. I will say that I bought a size Small as opposed to a Medium. The Medium ran really long, almost tunic-like, but the Small did fit better and wasn’t tight like most Small’s are on me.

I bought the Navy also but I’m returning it. I like this color, and really, how many similar tees do I need?

Merino Swirly Ruffle Cardigan – This is not online and the tag says HO 09 (Holiday 09). It’s 100% Merino Wool and comes in black and some other colors that I can’t remember. This color says CSP and retails for $98. I can’t find this color on Gigi’s list so it must be new. It’s pumpkin to me and such a fall color. I love it.

I tried it on with the Kelsey ruffle top, which I do not like. But I like the purple and pumpkin color combination.

J Crew says I have less than $100 to get a reward card. I’ve been eyeing these items.
Cashmere Bouquet Cardigan – $250 (I don’t know why but this is so pretty to me. I’m sure I’ll get sick of the “bouquets”.)
Mini Patent Campo Bag in Black Plum – $228 (Love this color!)
Terra Paisley Mini – $98 (Practical and will work well with tights and some of the boots I have.)

I have until Wednesday to decide.

    I bought this tee in both the grey and navy (they also had the pinkish and the cream colored ones in my B&M). Not sure yet if i will keep either one because of my concerns over how this will hold up over time , even eith hand-washing. It sure is cute, though!

    I love the silk flowers on this tee. Navy is more common than the mauve. Good choice to keep the one you did. 🙂

    Love that swirly ruffle cardi! CSP? Hmmmm… something Spice maybe?

    As far as your choices…go for the Campo – that black plum is insanely fab and gorgeous! (good luck making your decision!!)

    Thanks everyone. I ordered the Campo bag in the black plum so IRL pics should be up next week sometime.

    And…$17.50 for shipping?!?! FOR ONE ITEM!!! WTF J Crew… seriously…and that is UPS Ground. Thank goodness they sent a free shipping offer. But really…they are making some serious cash off shipping and handling charges because you know they get a discount from UPS.
