It has been awhile since I shopped J.Crew. I love their clothes, especially in fall and winter, but I personally think their prices have gotten really out of reach over the last few years. So the other night after nearly walking out over the price of a blouse with tiny hens on it, I kept my cool and walked back to the sale rack.
Excuse the iPhone photo and sleeping pup on the floor. As you can gather from me no longer being in the dressing room, I found and purchased this adorable (in my opinion) polka dot blouse that fits like a dream. It is so comfortable and effortless. The blouse regularly went for $128 and I paid $79 plus an additional 30% off. True, it is still expensive, but I’ll get a ton of wear through winter with both pant and skirts + tights.
On Thursday night, when I snapped this iPhone photo, I paired it with simple black pants from Banana Republic and a big black and gold J.Crew inspired necklace that I scored on Accessory Concierge for $30. Are you familiar with Accessory Concierge? If not, please stop reading my blog and go learn about it right now. You’ll thank (and hate) me later.
So the moral of the story is, if you love J.Crew but can’t stomach the prices at full retail, keep checking back on their sales. Maybe this spring I will finally treat myself to a J.Crew coat when they are marked down. I’ve wanted one since college… I mean, look at their outerwear collection. How do you choose just one?
Have a lovely Saturday!
