A few weeks ago I was able to stop by the J Crew Factory Store for a quick visit. Even though J Crew now has their Factory Store online, on the weekends, I still want to see the items “IRL”. For example, I really liked the Printed Tank Dress in Papaya but when I saw it my like turned to ‘meh’. It’s all one-piece but the waist has a thin elastic band to differentiate between the top and the bottom. Even though it is 100% silk, I don’t think it looked all that great on me, IMO. I think the top portion is too loose and not structured enough. I’m sure someone else will be able to rock it but I passed.
Factory Two-Pocket Chambray Shirt, Medium – I’d say this is a medium weight denim shirt. I love it and have worn it twice already. I tried it on with the Factory Printed Pencil Skirt in Violet Dust aka the Neapolitan Pencil Skirt. I liked the print of this skirt last year but wasn’t too fond of the material. I feared it would snag too much. This is a smooth cotton with a little stretch. I’m wearing a 6.
Textured Cotton Mini – Size 6 – Cobblestone
Flora Paisley Lily Short – Size 8 – Violet Dust – Told you I loved the print.
Black Blossom Cardigan
Ruffled Carly Dress – Size 6 – “LAM” – This fit a little different than the retail version, which I have in a 4 in white. I think it was around the hips where it seemed a little snug.
Perfect Printed Scarf – This is the Rose Vines print, which is one of my favorite prints but I did not care for the texture of it. I would have loved to have seen it in silk.
How cute is the Enamel Critter Giraffe Necklace? It’s $12.99 in the store as opposed to the $19.50 online.
New to my Factory store were women’s shoes, all ballet flats and crewcuts. I wish I could wear their size 14 because there were some cute tees!
I am really wanting the Vintage Zebra-Stripe Cardigan but it wasn’t in-store. I do like when the Factory Store brings the cotton version of the retail merino cardigans. For where I live the cotton is just a better choice. I hope to see it when I go back with my return.
Enjoy the game! I don’t care who wins really. I’m just waiting for GLEE!!!
