J Crew Final Sale Finds

I took a gamble on J Crew Final Sale last week knowing only one item would really work. Let’s see if the others are to my liking as well.

Striped Short-Sleeve V-Neck Sweater, Clay White, Small ~
I tried this on in the Navy Champagne back in May. I really liked it but didn’t think a sweater for Summer was worth the price at the time. The colors finally went on sale and I was able to get the Navy in-store for an additional 50% off. I waited for a good promo online to order the Clay White. This runs large and the Small fits me well and the way I want it to. I actually wore the Navy sweater this week when I had to go in to the office. I knew I was going to be in a meeting room all day and that the A/C would be really cold. Yes, I was hot and sweaty outside but the sweater was perfect for inside all day. I love that the Clay White will work well in the Fall. 

~ Wide-Leg Cropped Jean in Odell Wash, size 29 ~

I’ve been waiting to try the wide-leg cropped jean since it first arrived. Reviews are mixed with some saying to size down or that these fit weird. I LOVE them! I am so glad I was able to get them on sale and with a promo. I paid $42 for them but now they are part of the 60% off section making the Odell Wash jean 16 FREAKING DOLLARS! Of course I ordered another pair. The Lowry Wash and White are still on sale for $104.99 plus 40% off with GOSHOPPING.
I love the fit of these. I took my normal size 29 and the fit TTS for me. The waist does gape a little in the back but not enough to make them super loose in waist or feel like they are falling off. They skim my hips and upper leg and then go straight down from there. They are not a super wide-leg but I love the feeling of a non-skinny jean. The length are normal for me (5’2″) but I wore them rolled and liked the look. I can’t wait to try them with heels/espadrille wedges. I should order the Lowry Wash since I haven’t had a whole lot of luck finding a pair of non-skinny jeans. 
~ Vintage Cropped Jean in Rinse Wash, size 29 ~

I tried these on in the Parisi Wash not too long ago, though not in the correct size. The size 29 are the better fit, as I suspected. I like the dark wash on these as the two Tory Burch pair I have are a little faded from so many wears and washes. These are a nice fit but they are not cropped on me like I expected. Maybe once they are washed a few times they will shrink up a little. The denim is a little rougher feel than the Parisi Wash. Those were really soft but they were also a very light wash. These are a good price at $36 with GOSHOPPING and a nice addition to my closet.

It’s also a great time to get some Collection, 3rd-party and Cashmere items. All these are and additional 60% off. The scarves are great for Christmas gifts. I ordered the Palm Tree Scoopback Swimsuit for only $20. The Striped Eyelet Skirt comes out to $16 if you can get your size.

Have you taken a chance on J Crew’s Final Sale items? Anything from the 60% off section you tried and love?

    that graphic brush stroke boy shirt
    liked it when it first came out, but not at the price,

    Kate – I have that print in the Sundress. I bought it at 30% less off the full-price but have worn it several times since purchasing. I think the Boy Shirt will look pretty cool under a solid sweater in Winter with just the collar and/or hem showing. It will brighten up a dreary day.

    Purchased the Mini skirt in midnight floral jacquard for $25. Just gorgeous and have colors that match with it. Purchased the regular length and it was the perfect length for me as a petite.

      Margaret – I never tried that skirt one. The colors were too Fall/Winter for me, though now with Fall items starting to arrive I should reconsider.

    I also got the vintage cropped jeans in parisi and rinse wash. They are not cropped on me,so i just cuff or roll them. They look so much better on me that way!

      Ina – I debated on getting them in the Parisi Wash but felt they were too faded for me. I'll roll mine in Rinse Wash as well.
