Hello readers! It has been awhile, sorry about that. I have been so busy with medical school that blogging has taken a back seat.
But I did have the whole Memorial day weekend off and a day to relax and shop around. There are amazing sales going on right now so lets start with one of our favorite stores: J Crew!
J Crew was having 40% off extra on sale items, but it was FINAL SALE only.
J Crew Cotton Pique Lace Dress $158 (On sale for $119.99 - 40%) - Size 00
This dress looked just okay on the hanger, but looked so much better when I tried it on! The fit was great, if not a little tight. I like fit and flare dresses as they whittle my waist and hide my hips so this dress was exactly what I was looking for. The material is a thicker cotton, that isn't at all see through (I am wearing a teal bra, but you don't notice it). Length is perfect at 3 inches above my knee. I am 5'5" for reference. Comes in yellow too. Purchased!
J Crew Knit Sleeveless Dress $158 (On sale for $119.99 - 40%) - Size 00
I needed a work dress and this definitely fit the bill. The fit was great. The front panel is like a knit material and the navy section is stretchier, similar to scuba material, but thinner. It is body skimming, so may not hide lumps and bumps as well as some other cuts. I felt it was quite flattering and cute with the little ruffled flare on the bottom. The length is appropriate as well coming 1 inch above my knee.
J Crew Lace-Stripe Skirt $98 (On sale for $69.99 - 40% off) Size 0
I wished this skirt worked for me. The bright canary color was beautiful, with the last close-up image of the skirt most accurately depicting the super saturated yellow hue. Unfortunately the materal was a bit stiff and the skirt was one size too large for me. The store had sold out of 00. Otherwise, the fit was great and POCKETS! I am wearing it with a J. Crew sweater that I will review next. Passed on the skirt.
J Crew Merino Baseball Sweater in Scallop Intarsia $89.50 (On sale for $69.99 - 40%) Size XS
This sweater is very thin, which makes it very sheer. It also has a boxier shape and fits large. I would take one size down from your regular size. Passed.
J Crew Toothpick Jean in Tux Stripe $130 (On sale for $59.99 - 40%) Size 26
Last is an army green denim with candy cane stripes. I don't really know why I tried this on because I didn't like the color/pattern of this pant. It fit much like the regular J. Crew denim, which is quite snug on the thighs. Passed.
That's it for J. Crew ladies! Hope you enjoy the rest of Memorial Day weekend!
