J Crew - LOVEIT for 30% off clearance ends tonie

Anybody RO (re-order) during this promo? I did. I really dislike doing it, but when you're talking about $50 in savings, it has to be done. Of course that 'savings' is usually applied to something else. Some items in my RO include

Layered pearl necklace ($59.99) - This didn't move in price during the promo, but it's something I used my RO 'savings' toward. I initially bagged on the different pearl sizes in another post, but hope I love it when it arrives. I had a similar one by F21. The pearls looked really good, esp for $12.80, but the stringing was too tight, or the wire they used wasn't flexible enough. Also, I think the F21 one wasn't long enough. Uh oh. I didn't even think to measure how short/long it will be on me. I went by the online pics only. I'mma piece-a-werk today.

4/15 - ETA: Irl pic

Allura shift dress in superfine cotton ($79.99) - Sun nite this was $125, then it went to $148 and now $79.99 - I hope the beechwood (4) works for my coloring. I threw that on w/my RO of the dress in navy - Irl pics

4 - chest = 36.5", waist = 31.25", low hip = 40"
6 - chest = 37.5", waist = 32.25", low hip = 41"

Delaney eyelet-trim shirt (now $29.99) - This is the culprit that set it off my RO. It was on promo for $49.50 and dropped to $29.99. I've tried it on and really liked the eyelet, even though it's at the bottom. This means you lose the detail if you want to tuck in the shirt. I plan to wear it unbuttoned kinda low and a big necklace to cover the chest a bit. The RO mindset isn't a clear one. I got it in white & black. Why did I think that would be a good idea? Because I originally paid $35 for one and thought $40 for two was pretty awesome. Lawd, somebody get me off the Internet! Check it out on Shopping On the Fly

4 - Chest = 38.75", Center Back Length = 26.75"
6 - Chest = 39.5", Center Back Length = 27"

P4 - Chest = 37.75", Center Back Length = 25.75"
P6 - Chest = 38.75", Center Back Length = 25"

If any of these go down even more in price, do me a favor and don't tell me! *lol* I felt good about the previous prices I paid and now I'm feeling even better even though I probably have 3 extra things than I intended. J Crew --> #winner (sighs)

JCAs, remember to check out the links to irl pics. I spent a good amount of time today pulling out old items and updating new ones. And if you're trying to reach the minimum for free shipping, which is technically $214 before 30% off with LOVEIT, sometimes working with the items on promo can help.

Gigi's Gear - Skittles!

I went to F21 yesterday because my peasant top seen in this post didn't work out. As soon as I started typing my thoughts in the post, I knew it'd probably be a bust. I didn't dig the neckline and it didn't work to try to wear it off one shoulder. Elastic waist. Eh, just a pass. I exchanged it for a leopard top that I don't see online. Rrrwwaarrr! Desert Flower was right. The belt that came w/the skirt funked up my whole bag. I promptly threw the belt away. The skirt is beautiful. I don't know why/how I thought it was pleated. It has some fullness that give it a slightly pleated look, but not really. It's lightweight not too sheer. Anyway, it's beautiful and could possibly go to early fall. Different than I expected, but I ordered it at midnite. Like it. Lots.

FYI, F21 is now using safety yellow bags or at least some of them are. In case you have orders going to your place of work, you have been warned. It reminds me of my 1st QVC order, years ago, which arrived in bright yellow with QVC QVC QVC stamped in red all over it. Mortified.

While at the mall, I meant to take a full length pic in a fitting room and totally forgot. Do I look relaxed? Yes, I do. I spent 1 hour there and walked away with 1/3 of my tax info completed. It's amazing what can be accomplished w/out the usual distractions. As far as the outfit, I knew I wanted to wear the striped top. Then I thought, Skittles! Even though it was a bit warm, I went w/the Cambridge for bright candy color. I couldn't find my Jackie in cerise. Candy necklace and green patent shoes complete the theme.

Top (M): Forever 21 striped slouchy slub top - See this one, too)
Cardi (S): J Crew Cambridge cable cardi FA10 (Similar color here, here and here)
Necklace: The Limited SU10, I think (Similar in blue, rows of beads in coral and I love kitsch, but fruit?)
Jeans (29S): My beloved toothpicks)

Shoes: Talbots SU10? (Green flats here, here and here)

While in F21 I saw the Bali print skirt (2000012864), which is a polyester ringer for Anthro's silk Phosphorescence skirt from last year.

How I'm livin'

1. I'm not a sweets person. I'm salty, baby. However, I love Skittles, hence the post title. I recently bought some large packs on sale, but haven't opened them. I feel guilty about the impact of sugar, esp when I don't get cravings for it. Skittles remind me of ice skating because I faithfully purchased them from the vending machine when I was young. And they have a hilarious FB fan page. I'll probably bust open a pack soon.

2. We had popcorn for dinner (salty!) and watched The Fighter. Early in the day it crossed my mind to have popcorn for dinner, nothing else, and G Money suggested it to me a few hours later. Why can't I use my psychic prowess for the Lotto? The Fighter was good. Christian Bale is phenomenal. Of course it doesn't hurt that he's hawt. I'll keep him as a fantasy, though, because I imagine he's a crazy mo' fo' and that's because of his talent, not the crazy rant that was foolishly leaked long ago. I'll let you Google it. Melissa Leo was fantastic. I think that's the first thing I've seen her in. Amy Adams. Always stellar. Ok, Wahlberg is still Marky Mark. However, he has a slight Matt Damon thing about him, which is attractive and he simply has "it." I wasn't as bothered or distracted by him as I thought I might be. He was great in Rock Star & Boogie Nights. He seems to work hard and I hope he gets that role of a lifetime in the future.

3. You haven't seen any Idol updates from me because G Money has a habit of disappearing when it's not on, freeing me to blog/talk on phone/channel surf/watch reality smut on tv while on treadmill, without an audience. Of course on Idol nights he seems to want together time. I'm working w/his schedule a bit, so I don't say no. I think what I need to do is find out exactly when Idol is on (they've moved it since the beg) and then try to get him on a different together time schedule. Oh, I asked if he wanted his blog name changed and he said no. Doesn't want to confuse anyone. *lol* I guess he doesn't mind it if some think he's throwing duckets around, making it rain.

Chime in...

Talbots - spring skirts

Fete jacquard skirt (239765) - Size 6P - This one was just ok.

I think what I didn't like is the raised texture. It reminds me of a shiny scar. I think the silver threading appeared a bit cheap in contrast to the fabric. If I recall correctly, I didn't care for how the fabric felt. Keep in mind that I have textural issues and get the heebie jeebies easily. As I recently said about another skirt, Loft nailed their jacquard last year so I'm partial to theirs. I don't think this is a daytime skirt, though. You could wear it as one, but I imagine it's better for nicer events, including evening where it would shine.

Twinkle linen pleat waist skirt (239869) - Size 6P - This didn't twinkle as much as I expected. I'd be curious to see the grey color, which might have a little more pop. I didn't like the fit of this. However, I was in a rush. If you like it on the hanger, you should try it on. You may get a different feeling. Loooooooooves the pockets. That's always a hit w/me.

Triomphe jacquard pencil skirt (239867) - Size 6P - I like the idea of yellow, but I don't wear it much as I have yellow undertones in my skin. I liked the texture of this skirt. I seem to be a 6P in the pencil skirts and 4P in some of the fuller skirts.

Palais floral pencil skirt - This skirt is pretty upon closee inspection. Talbots is with the times. If you hover over the image, you can zoom all around the skirt for the closer look. No need to click and wait for another window to pop up. Windows that sometimes never pop up at all (shaking finger in another direction). I also love that they now show the Woman sizes on models who are actually that size. This was a Facebook request made by Talbots fans and the company implemented it. It means more work for plus models(!) and customers have a better idea of how an item will look on them. Awesome. Back to the skirt. Those little grape clusters could hit a funny area on the hips, but I don't think it'd be a huge issue. I like the tones in this.

Shadow wash denim skirt - A respectable length. I like the waist tab and the fact that it has belt loops. Good for the boot scootin' boogie. (slaps knee) There's also a white one.

Parachute sash skirt - I can't claim to be a fan of button front skirts, but I like the sash tie. I would try this skirt on for that alone.

Fluid crepe pencil skirt - This is online only. Remember, you can order in-store from the red phone. All orders get free shipping when you do.

Thanks for stopping by...

For those curious, yes I bit on this promo. Just so you know I am cracking up because I typed porno. I just bit on this porno...*lol*...(slaps knee...hard). Trying to recover. I went for the Allura dress (4) and Delaney blouse (6P). I think the Delaney will go down in price, esp in petite. However, I didn't want to risk the white disappearing from right underneath my nose. I really like the lace at the bottom of the shirt. The Allura might go down, but it could go up in price before it goes down. If I were able to get a lower price, I could risk it hopping out of my cart before I'm able to snag it. The navy is worth it to me at the price now. I haven't had the fever for stalking things in quite awhile and don't want to catch it anytime soon.

And hey...JCAs don't let JCAs shop final sale without the links to irl pics.

Here's a revised list of links to irl pics of J Crew final sale items. If I don't have irl pics, I have links to other bloggers' irl pics and/or comments made about the items.

If you have a question, I will try to answer it or someone here will. Sometimes a full range of sizes will pop back in an item, but I won't see and add it to this list. If you don't see the item you're interested in here, try entering the product name or style number in the Search This Blog box on the right-hand side of the main page.

If I've reviewed the item, it should show up in the search. You can also search on The Mothership to see if there is discussion about an item you're interested in. Even though J Crew adjusts their prices, as pointed out in this discussion, I recently started adding the current selling price next to every item. I can only do this in spurts, so the list is not complete w/prices at this moment in time (3/31/11). Keep in mind that prices go up and down, so I may not always have the correct price listed.

Lizzy said, 'These have been discussed a bunch... but I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus b/c I love, love LOVE them- like, bought them in both colors love them. I have a classic hourglass and usually can't do the skinny look, but these pants are like magic-- hugging in all the right places, sleek with heels and cute with flats/sneakers. Plus, b/c of the stretch they are *comfy*! As other JCA's have noted they do run a bit large in the waist, but IMO can be easily cinched with a belt. I have them in my "non-vanity size" and they fit perfectly; can make them either slouchy or sleek, depending on how I belt them.'

Size 4 - Waist = 32.5", Hip = 37"

* Double-serge stripe pencil skirt - I called for measurements on this. The size 4 has a waist of 29" and hip of 39" or so. The size 6 has a waist of 30" and hip of 40" or so. The 4 fit me well. See it on Slastena and on Audreybella.
* Felted wool mini ($29.99) - on Ema
* Fireside plaid town mini ($29.99) - That links to the solid black. Too youthful for me. I realize you're not supposed to bend at the waist and I don't. I just like to point out how short these skirts can seem when you're in them. This looks fairly look on me since I'm 5'2", but it felt very short.

Size 4 - Waist = 29.5", Hip = 37.5"
Size 6 - Waist = 30.5", Hip = 38.5"

Size 4 - 79% cotton, 13% silk, 5% metallic, 3% nylon, 100% poly lining - The size was fine. I'm usually on the cusp as far as sizing goes, so dropping a couple lbs would make this an ideal fit as opposed to going to a 6. I love textures & brocades and this had that nice, old lady couch cover feel. I think it didn't turn me on because there's not enough contrast w/the colors. I prefer a couple of the brocade skirts released by Loft last year.

I like it w/the belt. It cuts the waist area.

Belt (M): J Crew (Similar here, here and here)

Size 4 - chest = 36.75", waist = 34.25"
Size 6 - chest = 37.75", waist = 35.25"

* Tuxedo henley - ($19.99)
XXS - chest = 30.5", waist = 29.5"
XS - chest = 32", waist = 31"

The measurements seem odd to me because usually the measurements vary by 1". So if the XXS chest is 30.5, an XS chest would be 31.5 or 32.5, not 32. But that's what they gave me.
