Loft - ruffle front halter

Loft's ruffle front halter (website #249401/petite, #244424/regular) comes in pale peri and also comes in a pink print.

Size S - The color is very pretty. It's an ultralight orchid. The thumb goes down from there. Poly. Halter so you have to fool w/bra type or depend on a cardi. We've seen ruffles before. And so on.

Cardigan (M): BP BP. Three Quarter Sleeve Jersey Cardigan - Love these. I have 4.
Shoes (M): Nine West Outlet (Similar here in rose crinkle)

Chime in...

J Crew - 2nd cuts in final sale

I should stay out of the sale section and off the site period, but I can't help it. While I was visiting, I noticed the following reductions:

* Draped glass necklace (I think they knocked $10 off, now $59.99) - No irl pics, but I love mine in crystal. I tried the heather petrol, but it was a lot like the crystal libretto. I like the lighter crystal in contrast w/my skin tone. If you're lighter, you might prefer the darker. Or you might like crystal. If you own it, do chime in since I don't have a pic at the moment.
* Effie scarf dress ($59.99) - Irl pics
* Jackie cardigan ($39.99) - No 2nd cut on this, but it looks like some of the colors are popping back in various sizes  - Irl pics
* Jackie shell ($19.99) 
* Jenna's cardigan ($49.99)  - Irl pics on Kelinda.Kelinda here and here
* Lightweight cotton tunic top ($39.99) - Irl pics
* Pearl twisted hammock necklace ($59.99)
* Perfect-fit ruffle henley ($14.99) - I saw white only at that price. Irl pics
* Printed embossed Lorelei dress ($39.99) - on Sugar & Spice
* Ruffled Carly dress ($39.99) - Irl pics
* Sahara suede ankle boots - Not purporting that these are a 2nd cut. I just noticed these on sale and wanted to point them out.
* Solid Schuyler dress ($54.99) - See the striped on Fabulous Florida Mommy
* Spaced-dyed pocket cardigan ($59.99)
* Swann ruffled shirtdress ($29.99) - Irl pics

If you see any other reductions or have other info to share, let us know :-)

J Crew - rugby-stripe Ginny dress

J Crew's rugby-stripe Ginny dress comes in regular (26673, 0-14) and petite (27465, P2-P12 currently online). The color choices are natural & dark pewter. From the website,

"This is the mileage piece that can be easily dressed up with statement heels and sparkly baubles or dressed down with a leather belt, and tough-girl bling." 

Tee hee hee hee. Tough-girl bling. J Crew loves their hyphens more than I love my ellipses. They also loooove saying "piled on necklaces."

Size 6 - I can't remember if I was able to zip this up all the way or not. I know I wouldn't be interested in petite if it's any shorter.

Shot of the grosgrain ribbon that was a bit shopworn.

* Coralie cami - Only 2 colors were marked down in the past. Looks like all colors are now on sale. Irl pics
* Fade-out sailor tee - Marked down to $29.99.
* Jenna's cardigan - Marked down to $59.99.
* Metallic beach cardigan - Irl pics
* Printed embossed Lorelei dress - Love this dress. It has pockets. Check it out on Sugar & Spice

Final faves...
* Drawstring henley dress - I rolled the dice on this after reading that it's a "heavier subtantial slub cotton." I did an online chat about t. The XS chest/waist measure 34". The S chest/waist measures 36" and the M chest/waist measures 38". I got a M since my waist is still measuring 33" instead of my average 28". I want to throw it in the washer & dryer without worry. I hope this dress works because I definitely didn't like the thinness of the material on the drawstring v-neck henley dress or the way it looked on me.
* Jackie shell - Oh man, I should have gotten this in dark charcoal. Oh well.
* Perfect-fit ruffle henley tee - I have this in navy from long ago. I had to pick at least one color on this promo & got the heather grey.
* Perfect-fit short-sleeve V-neck tee - I didn't like the honey color in another tee, but have & like it in this. Visit the long sleeve v-neck, too. On that one bright amethyst is supah purty and the vintage orange is interesting.
* Wychmere studded flip-flops - Almost threw these on to reach the min for free shipping. My mind went to the # of flip flops I own & figured out something else. Cute, though. 

Remember, EXTRA30 on final sale ends tonite, 11:59 EST.

J Crew - drawstring V-neck henley dress

J Crew's drawstring V-neck henley dress (27845) runs XS-XL and comes in black or dark pewter.


Dark pewter - Size S - This is the dress with the waist tied, but not cinched. The dress isn't hiked up in any way. It's just straight.

Notice how the pockets hit my hips. They would add a little weight if I wore the dress like this. I guess I'm supposed to distract everyone by piling on necklaces.

I cinched it a little bit and pulled the torso part out to fold a little over the drawstring. That didn't really help matters.

The material of the dress is very clingy. I saw it on a 5'7" SA who was flat in the front and back. It looked great on her. I don't like my clothes very fitted, so I didn't appreciate it bonding to the top of my rear. The dress felt comfortable, but thin and very much like winter underwear. It felt like I was missing another piece of clothing. I think you could work with this dress, but I end up not wearing things I have to think too much about. If I wear a tank underneath, will the line of it show in the rear, etc...

It looks like this alternative J Crew drawstring henley dress is a heavier material, according to the description. Also $39.99. Three color choices. And I'll bet this henley dress from Kohl's is more substantial.

Thanks for visiting. The next post *is* the Ginny dress. Promise.

J Crew - fiesta floral tunic

J Crew's fiesta floral tunic (27013) comes in natural or black plum. I see XS - L on the website at the moment.

Size S - This top didn't register with me when I tried it on and it doesn't now. We've seen the design/style before. I guess if you like your embroidery to be less obvious, you might enjoy this more than other options we've seen.

Thanks for visiting. Come back to see irl pics of the rugby-stripe Ginny dress. The post should be up in the later morning (PST)/early afternoon (EST).

I've been wanting a necklace with bit of sparkle and this one fits the bill. It's chunky and substantial enough to wear by itself without being mammoth, but it's also small enough to layer with other pieces. Love the pink/gold combination!"

I even wore them to go out at night last weekend. I remember commenters being very skeptical about these but I really think they look good, and are soooo comfortable to boot!

Thoughts on...
* Morning glory art tee - Only $9.99 - I did an inventory of my print tees and I don't have as many as I thought. I think I was just overexposed to J Crew's art tees like this one. I don't have this, but I got a similar art tee on the last promo and it looks great with a cardi. Boy, if I had a buck for everytime I said that. I think I say that more now than "with jeans."
* Perfect-fit ruffle henley - Such a simple top but I love mine in navy. It's so comfortable - Irl pics
* Silk camisole - Priced as low as $19.99. I have copper & neon melon both in M. It's a little big, but the straps help me adjust it to a great fit. I was surprised to really like the neon melon. It looks great w/a darker cardi, like navy.
* Silky chiffon tunic - I'm trying this in the dark pumpkin. It looks vibrant & pretty.
* Silky linen slouchy pant - I have and love the silk-linen city pants. These are similar so I got them in cobblestone - Irl pics

J Crew - another ruffled cardigan

First up...

Congratulations to yesterday's winner of the Scarf-A-Day Giveaway
(#5), Sungirl! 
Please respond to my email within 48 hours.

Also -- find out what vuvuzelas are and enter Dr. Drama's $25 J Crew gift card giveaway.
J Crew's Roxie ruffle cardigan (25858) runs XS - XL and the color is called natural. It's in the final sale section for $59.99. It's a J Crew Collection item.

Here is another ruffled cardi I tried on at J Crew. It looks just like the Roxie, but this one has a style# of 27772. I didn't pay attention to the neck tag, so I don't know if it said Collection or not like the Roxie.

Size S - Fug.

Moving right along...

* Anthropologie - One After Another cardi - If you want more bounce in your flounce. Looks like another one we saw at J Crew. I'm not saying Anthro vendors are copying. Just remarking on similarities.

* Asos - BLACK Petal Shrug - Who is the fugliest of them all? Are they trying to out-do J Crew or what. And the model is like...really...really?

* Charlotte Russe has knocked off J Crew's Lilli cardi. Check it out Charlotte Russe's version here. I've seen it in-person and it's not bad. I think it could look cute layered underneath something else. Yep -- as in 2 cardigans worn together, one over that one. Or maybe under a shorter length blazer like the J Crew or Gap schoolboy. What I like about the Charlotte Russe version is that the chiffon isn't so precious. I would feel fine washing it and if it didn't hold up for more than a couple wears, my feelings wouldn't be hurt.
* Nordstrom - Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati ruffle cardigan - Reminds me of Anthro's Spilling Ruffles cardigan, but with more volume in the ruffles. The chianti is that nice rich magenta shade I love about Anthro's.

Thanks for visiting!
