I stopped by my local J Crew today (Century City in LA) to see what they had in store. The sale section was pretty full. There were lots of No. 2 skirts, eyelet tops, dresses, toothpick denim (sizes 24, 29, 30, 31 and 32 only), shorts (00, 4 and up) and some skirts. This was the first time I saw a stocked sale section at this J Crew and I was loving it. Unfortunately the store did not match the extra 30% off offered online
Here's what I tried on with stock photos and me photos:
J Crew Blythe Blouse in Royal Blue:
I am a sucker for J Crew blouses, especially those in silk. I love the relaxed look of them and the versatility. No to mention they feel super soft against the skin as well. I really liked the looser fit of this top, but I passed on this one, only because I wasn't a fan of the blue color. I like blues, but I am looking for something a little more bright or pastel. This was a size 00. They had sizes 0, 4, 10 and 12 if I recall correctly. It was on sale for $69.99.
J Crew Toothpick Jean in Garment-Dyed Twill in Neon Persimmon
I have been lusting over these jeans since I tried them on a few months ago and when I finally decided to purchase, they no longer had my size in store and online. Imagine my euphoria when the SA informed me that they were on sale. But and a HUGE but, they were only available in sizes 24 and 30 and up. I am a 26 so those were no-gos for me. However, picking up the 24, it looked a tad bigger than normal so I decided to try it on. Just for kicks? With a bit, okay a lot of effort, I managed to get these babies up and button. Sure they give me a little muffin top, but who is gonna notice? The bright and cheery color will hopefully distract the onlookers! I plan to pair this with a more flowy top to hide the bulge.
I honestly think that this pair is mislabeled and is possibly a size 25. Doesn't matter, it's with me now. The pair was marked down from $125 to $89.99
J Crew Relaxed Chino (Scout?) in Neon Peach
These pants look incredible on the model! On me? Not so much. The fit on the hip area is slightly dowdy and I like a tauter fit to my pants. I passed on this one. Color was beautiful though. It was on sale for $ 49.99.
J Crew Natasha Top in Polka Dot
Yes, yet another Natasha top for me. It's my 4th one I think. The sleeveless style is perfect for the summer and this shirt can be tucked in or left out. It would look great with jeans, skirts and shorts. What more could I ask for? Oh, and there are small ruffles around the neck and the armholes. Very cute. The fit is slimmer than the Blythe blouse, for that I am thankful for. This was marked down to $69.99, still pricey, but worth it.
J Crew Scalloped Sateen Skirt
I usually love J Crew skirts, but this was an exception. I liked how this skirt nipped at the waist and a scallop detail is one of my absolute favorites, but the flare of the skirt poofed out and added bulk to my hips, not a place I want highlighted.
J Crew Ankle-Zip Toothpick Jean
Finally I tried on these pair of skinnies. This style runs one size smaller than my regular toothpick size and is a lot stretchier. I liked the fit, but not the color. This purple pair would be great for the fall, but I am in a more spring/summer mood right now. This was available in 24, 27, 29, 31 and 32). It was marked down to $89.99 from $125. I passed on this one.
Overall a great day at the sale section in J Crew. I also checked out the new arrivals and purchased one amazing thing, which will be reviewed in another post.
