Burgandy/Wine/Oxblood seems to the IT color this Fall. I picked up the J Crew Double-Serge Cotton Pencil skirt over the Summer. I added the Silk French Hen shirt looking more at the Navy/Burgandy pairing than the actual print. I wore this to the office last week and no one seemed to notice my little Chick-a-dees. My trusty Louboutin Simple 70s in Navy finished the outfit.
I ended up removing the necklace and bracelet as they didn’t look right with the outfit, once I took the picture. Funny how everything looks ok in the mirror but in pictures it can be completely different.
How are you wearing your Burgandy? 

I completely missed out on the Bubble necklace originally but was lucky enough to find a gray necklace on the JCA Exchange. J Crew has brought this back in Black and Modern Red.

Description from J Crew: We brought it back: the defining J.Crew statement necklace (it’s an icon) in 18K gold electroplated brass with hand-set resin cabochons and beads. Lobster clasp closure. Import. Length: 24″ with a 3″ extender chain for adjustable length.

Here it is IRL. I’m not sure if it is worth the $150 price tag. A pair of shoes or a pencil skirt, definitely. A necklace, umm…not so much. But, the Modern Red color is a gorgeous red. A true red in my opinion. I’ve seen the black in-store as well and it is just as pretty.  I’m on the fence with this one.

Next up is the Cashmere Lined Leather Gloves, in Holiday Punch.
The chicest way to keep cold weather from getting out of hand, in the softest, most supple Italian napa leather (luxuriously lined with cashmere). 

As soon as I saw this color I had to see it IRL as well. I ordered a size Large, which is a perfect fit. This is such a juicy, vibrant color. It comes in Black, Light Walnut and Celestial Blue, which looks just as gorgeous as the Holiday Punch. Both colors look like they will liven up a nice camel or black winter coat. The leather is soft and supple and the lining is comfortable and cozy.
Lastly, I have the Cafe’ Capri in Wool in Maraschino Cherry. As soon as this color popped up online I ordered them. They were back-ordered until last week and arrived Tuesday. They come in Black, Yacht Blue, Navy, Baked Citron, Bright Dahlia, Camel and Port Wine. 
I already have these in the Camel and ordered my normal size of 8 in J Crew pants. It was very hard to capture the true color of these pants. I am wearing them with the Juliet heels in Poppy and the Silk Polka Dot Tee. The heels are a bolder red, like the Bubble Necklace. The last picture was the best I could get with my point-and-shoot and standing about 15 feet away, zoomed in and flash on.

What do you think of these reds and pink? Are you interested in the Bubble Necklace this time around? 

So I really bit hard on the latest ‘MUSTSHOP’ promo at J Crew – take 40% off sale and Final Sale items and Free Shipping on $100 or more.

I really wanted the Olive Moss but this is such a unique dress the Dark Charcoal is just fine. Once I saw it pop back I was not about to let it get away from me again.

Love that these were a pop-back. 
I have been wanting some “wear-out-of-the-house” cozy, Ugg-type boots. I think these will do.

I plan on wearing these with several of last year’s pencil skirts (Pastiche, Contrast Pencil Skirt, Turkish Delight, Impressionist Pencil Skirt).

I bought the white a few weeks ago in the B&M. It’s a little shear but a great layering tee with some detail. 
I bought the Bright Dahlia and the Olive Moss.

Cashmere Crewneck Tee – $145 $99 $59.99
I have a few of these in the short-sleeved version and love them.
They have been very versatile, with jeans and skirts. 

Have a great day!

This post was totally inspired by Ginger Girl who also found some great items. Check out her picks here.

I am a huge fan of Pottery Barn. Husband is too! It’s the one store we both like to shop at. Having lived so close to their stores and outlet, we have a lot of our furniture and decor from there so I receive all of their catalogs. I usually briefly scan them to see if there is anything of interest and then toss them into the recycling bin.

Today, when skimming through the magazine a cool-looking jewelry bust caught my eye. Then something on it intrigued me even more.

Just a lovely dresssing table set-up.

Even more J Crew jewelry

Now I really want that bust.

Husband and I usually celebrate holidays early – Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc. It’s a lot easier to get a table at our favorite restaurants to go a few days before the “big day”. So tonight I was taken to Maggiano’s for Mother’s Day dinner.

I was planning on wearing my Impressionist pencil skirt and new “Charms and Kitsch” tee but I did a little shopping today after I created my Polyvore and pick up the Arribada Current Dress by Moulinette Soeurs from Anthropologie. It was on sale for $69.95 in-store ($99.95 on the website). I tried a 6 and it was too loose on top so I asked for the 4. Still slightly loose but there was no way I could size down to a 2. I love the cut, style, length, PRINT! I didn’t even notice the sea turtles on it until I tried on the 4! I grabbed it because of the green color.

So here it is. (Sorry for the non-expression. I’m not mad. And I need a haircut!)

Dress: Arribada Current Dress by Moulinette Soeurs from Anthropologie
Necklace: J Crew Salon Necklace
Shoes: Nine West
Look at the turtles!
It has pockets! I pinned the neckline. I think I can have it taken up at the shoulder seams to fit a little better. Also, my shoes are old. I didn’t realize I have no cute black sandals. I originally envisioned flat sandals with this dress but I had none. I pulled these from my ebay pile. I think I need some black slingback sandals with a kitten heel for this dress. 
I’ll have a post tomorrow with my other Anthro sale buys and a new J Crew mini skirt (too cute!).
