J Crew Factory Casbah Pencil Skirt

I have a lot of love for the Casbah print in Jade from J Crew Spring 2011. I have the dress and scarf and pined over the Perfect Shirt and Silk Blouse. I regretfully missed the swimwear in this print that the lovely xoxo has and considered, for a brief moment, the Romper. A good print will do that to you. It will make you consider wearing it in something you know is going to look ridiculous on you. 
When Rynetta, from the blog jcrewismyfavstore, posted a pic of what looked like this lovely print in a skirt I immediately called my local Factory Store. I described it to the best of my ability, without the Style # (which is 37532) and luckily, this was the only green printed pencil skirt in the store. The SA confirmed it was a pencil skirt. I was hoping, just a little, that it would be the Belle Skirt. How cute would that have been?
As expected, it arrived today and I am loving it. It is cotton but un-lined which is fine by me. I ordered my normal size 6 and it is a perfect fit, per usual.
Such a pretty print. It is 98% Cotton and 2% Spandex and the color is Jade. Since this is in Factory stores now my guess is new arrivals will be on the website tomorrow. I wonder what other Spring goodies we’ll see! 
Thanks for reading! 
Two posts in one day…I’m loving my new app! Now, when I have a blog post in my head I can whip out Diva (I’ve named my iPad) and start typing away. She’ll be one hard-working iPad. 😉

    I need the skirt to do a "hookup" with the perfect shirt ;-). It is my favorite print from last year too (and maybe of all time).

    I wanted to ask you, do you take the pictures with your iPad? I am tempted to buy the app that you are using to blog but I still don't know how to transfer pics from my camera…

      I think that would look nice, with a contrasting belt to separate the two items just so. As far as my iPad I don't take my outfit pics with it but I did use it to take the Soludos Espadrilles pics. Normally, I use the iPad Camera Connection for my camera. They import easily into my iPad and then I can edit the pictures on my iPad. The app makes you add your blog login and then it will upload the pics to Picasa which is what I use to store my pictures anyway. It runs about $30. I bought the one with the USB connection.

      Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.
