J Crew Sale Section Finds: 

I needed to return something at a department store, and since J Crew was a few stores away, I was drawn there against my will...that's a lie. I went so much on my own accord sadly.

J Crew Sparkly Row Cami in Vintage Ivory and Navy (here)

These tops were marked down to $69.99 + extra 30% off. These tops were very pretty. The delicate rhinestones overlaying vertical pleats was a nice design. The top is quite boxy, however. The ivory/nude color was a little see through on the unpleated parts. I am wearing a size 00. Passed on both tops.

J Crew Collection Cashmere Bateau Sweater (here)


This sweater was marked down to $129.99 + 30% off. I really liked this sweater. The size was perfect for me and the length was great as well. I liked how it was long enough to cover the top of my jeans, but short enough to layer, just like in the stock photo. The cheery light green color is amazing! I can't get enough of greens. I am wearing a size XXS.

J Crew Pleated Crepe Skirt in Vibrant Fuchsia (here)

This skirt was marked down to $59.99 + 30% off. I love fit and flare skirts! I tried on a size 0, but it sat lower on the waist than I wanted. I pulled back the waistband of the skirt a little to see how it would look and I liked the cinched look better. They no longer had a size 00 available.

J Crew Nicky Top in Navy Polka Dot

This top was marked down to $69.99 + 30% off. This top felt more like satin than the regular chiffon. It was cute, but again boxy. This was a size 00.

J Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Wool Herringbone, Pink Romance (here)

This blazer was marked down to $129.99 + 30% off. It looks pink in my photo, but its actually bits of red and white in a herringbone pattern. It looks better open, than closed. Again it looks a little boxy, I would have preferred if the jacket nipped in the waist a little. It's weird, but I like the fit of the factory Schoolboys better than the regular ones. Good for my wallet I guess?

Thanks for reading! Don't hesitate to ask any questions!

Love the polka dot top! :) I have a similar one :)

It sounds like we're the same size, and I agree with you about the boxiness of many of the tops. If only they'd made the Sparkle Row Cami more fitted I might go for it.

I am about the same size as you and am wondering what jeans you are wearing in the photos. I always have a hard time finding skinny jeans that fit well through the knee and yours look just right!

I am wearing Gap Skinny Jeans in the photos. They are from the factory I think, but the regular skinny jeans work too as long as they have stretch. I wear a size 0 or 2 in Gap Jeans.

I hope this helps! I find H&M jeans fit well too. It is a specific cut that is of medium weight and is just slightly stretchy. Sorry it is a bit vague, but H&M does't have style names.

Finally, if you like patterns, check out J Crew's polka dot and geometric pattern jeans. They fit ways better than the regular jeans, are tighter and suck you in. I wear a 26.

Good luck! :)
