I finally got around to taking these pictures, I have to say I waited so long because I have no idea how to wear them properly so I ended up just taking pictures for the fit. Disappointing is the word that comes to mind.
I got the Stretch Double-Serge Pencil skirt in 00 regular. I knew I should’ve ordered it in petite but it wasn’t available in 00 petite. I thought it would be easier to hem than take in the waist, turns out I’ll need both. I had such high expectations after seeing this skirt on some bloggers (Gigi, ABC, Kelinda, and Crewlade)
Here it is, looking TERRIBLE on me and I have no choice but to get it tailored since it’s final sale. Sigh, at least it comes with pre-sewn white X’s in the back (this intel I got from J. Crew’s CS) for ease of alterations.
And the biggest disappointment of my purchase was this darling jacket that I had coveted forever and was excited to see it on sale. After seeing it in person I can understand why it got discounted. Let’s leave it at the print is not what I expect it to be. It looked so beautiful in J. Crew catalogs and stock photos.
I still like J. Crew, but I don’t think it likes me back. I’ll have the entire winter to figure out how to wear this springy Rose Vines blazer. Suggestions from sophisticated bloggers are always welcome.
In other news, Marciano is having free shipping on all orders and an additional 50% off on sale items (prices reflected in the sale price already…so don’t get too excited like I did).
Burt’s Bee Grab Bag on sale for $20 with free shipping, was $50. My oldest BFF loves this stuff.
