J Crew Final Sale: Stretch Ribbed Wool Merino Sweater, Collection Cashmere Sweater in Pinstripe, Abstract Fair Isle Sweater

I ordered a few Final Sale items last week. Let’s see how they look.

~ Stretch Ribbed Wool Merino Sweater, Burnished Olive, Medium ~
This olive color is one of my favorites that J Crew has done throughout the years. I bought the Long Merino Wool Ribbed Sweater in Grey a few months ago and was hoping this was just like it but “normal” length. This sweater is a little thicker and the length seems about the same. It does have some Poly in it as opposed to the “Long” sweater. The Medium fits TTS, so no need to size down. This sweater, in other colors, is currently 25% off with the FINDAFAVE promo. I would probably grab the Navy and Dark Bluegrass out of the nine color offerings. 
I have no idea why I bought a Medium in this sweater. The description clearly states “relaxed fit”. I should have sized to a Small. And I didn’t read the colors either. I thought the dark stripe was Blue not Black. It’s still workable, though, with skinnies. I’ll play around with it to see.

I love the Abstract Fair Isle Sweater and it seems a little ridiculous to get the scarf as well but this is one of the very few Fair Isle items I’ve liked. It’s the colors; pinks, gray, red. And the scarf has greens in it too. I regret not buying this scarf sooner. Then I would have had more time to wear it (though it does seem like Winter will never end). I think it will work with the Pinstripe Cashmere Sweater above. Gigi suggested that one.

Those were my Final Sale purchases. I could have passed on the first two and just bought the scarf.

Did you have any Final Sale hits or misses?

    Greetings AudreyBella – I love the Stretch Merino Wool Sweater and have it in multiple colors. I live in the Mid-Atlantic, so it's a great option for colder months – warm, but not overwhelmingly hot. I pair it with Pixies, tall boots, an Excursion Vest or the Majesty Peacoat, and one of my many J.Crew scarves for a casual errand-running Saturday. I hope you enjoy yours! Jennifer
