Extra 20% Off Final Sale {& free shipping} Is Back!

A big "thanks!" to many of you, including Tiffany Rose, Olga, Suzy, Marietta, Heidi (in this post), DianaMariko (in this post), Green_Dino (in this post), as well as Verity (in this post), who let us know about another offer from J.Crew.

J.Crew is offering customers 20% off any purchase from Final Sale {no minimum} and free shipping {on $150+} with promo code EXTRA20. This offer is good through 1/17/10.

It is worthwhile to point out the following fine print of this promo: "Free shipping applies to orders of $150+ after 20% discount on sale items and before shipping, handling and taxes are added". {A bit sneaky here, but by now we are use to it.} ;)

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Are there any sale items you are interested in getting?

  2. I broke down. Bought the Ryder hobo bag in shadow and the stretch flannel del pelato shift dress! Will review! Happy shopping!

  3. It's not 20% off any purchase, it's 20% off sale items only. You had me all excited for a minute there!

  4. Wow, the jewelry stock is back!

    I'm so tempted...must....resist....

  5. GARRRRR! I wanted % off + Free Ship w/no minimum! Blehhhhhhhh. Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  6. CDP: It's great to see so many items. :)

    Chris: Congrats on the bag! :)

    Desert Flower: I thought I mentioned that it is 20% off Final Sale in several places: the title of the post, as well as in the post (with the conditions highlighted), & the side bar. ;)

    Crew Cricket: I hear you- some of the jewelry is very tempting. :)

  7. I'm glad to see another promo being offered. There are a few items I wouldn't mind having, but I'm not sure I'll place the order.

    According to the fine print on the email, it appears that the stores will now only be 20%, too.

  8. just bought the cabin sweater in black. I bought it in fog after new year's when I had a 20% sale code. for anyone who is on the fence about the sweater, I think it is fabulous! very comfortable with a flattering fit and very warm. I was so happy with the 1st one I bought the black one :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Alexis you did! I just read that one sentence and momentarily got all excited :) I wish it was a code good on all items, I would definitely do some buying.

    The sale section doesn't hold anymore interest for me. I've purchased everything I wanted during the last code.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I don't like how the email says "Viva La Final Sale". There is nothing "viva" about *final* sale!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I appreciate the promo but I don’t think I will be making any purchases. I find that I often have a shopping bag full of items the day before a 20% off promo but when the promo starts half the items in my bag are no longer available. Of course when the promo ends the items I want become available again. This and the fact that I loath final sale really deter me from buying anything during these promos.

    What I think would be nice is if J. Crew did away with the $150 minimum. 20% off+ free shipping on any sale item and I would be there. Wishful thinking on my part...

    Happy shopping to those who are able to take advantage!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Chris- The del pelato shift is beautiful. I own it and I am surprised it didn't sell out quicker since Michelle O has the heather graphite color. Looks nice with the chalkboard charlies too. I love it!

    Alexis- I love this blog and the exchange. Thanks for the hard work!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Elaine & Emily: I would love it too, if the promo didn't have that weird minimum-after-promo-applied limitation. :)

    FFM: I am loving your new icon image, it's so pretty (as are you!) :)

    ILovePastry: Congrats on the sweater! :)

    Desert Flower: I get it now! :) I agree it would be great if the 20% off promo applied to all items too. :)

    Kristin: I thought the same thing about "viva la final sale". It should more be like "muerte para la final sale". ;)

    Pink Cupcake: Thank you for the words. You are so nice! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks for the promo code!

    I am thinking about getting the Pippa peep toes or the Molly heels but still not sure since they're final sale. Can anybody comment on the fit? How's the comfiness? TIA!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Used this promo for sure. I *finally* pulled trigger on the cable ribbed turtleneck, and the jalapeno cashmere tee. I was also thrilled the tweed mini was back in my size.

    After all that, decided i must have the silk streamers cami to match the mini. CS was so kind as to waive shipping and add promo to that one item. Thanks CS!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes, I took advantage of the sale on the jewelry items...I've been waiting for the Inifinity and Supernova collections to go on sale, especially since my B&Ms have been out of these items for awhile. However, my most wanted item, the Inifinity earrings in Crystal, popped out of my cart when I went to purchase...isn't that always the luck. If anyone sees them in store, please let me know! TIA! love2shop4bags AT yahoo DOT com.

  17. If only I'd waited another day to buy the Dolce cable knit sweater! Aaaarrrggghhh!

  18. Has anyone seen Heather Mint? Is it as light as Mist? Mist was too pale for me last year...

    ReplyDelete
  19. OT -- There is a new J Crew cardi featured in Feb Lucky mag & I posted it on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  20. i used this to pick up some crewcuts. since they always have free shipping the 20% off meant that i could just pick up a couple basics without worrying about making it to the $150 mark.

    ReplyDelete
  21. "muerte para la final sale" indeed! OK, OK, I did have to bite to reorder some things with the extra percent off, since several of the items weren't coming up as FS. If only they'd do price adjustments to sale items, they'd save my time from doing returns, and their SAs time processing them.

    Man, I would have totally ordered the Supernova necklace if the black chain/clear stone option had been available. I think that was about the only thing I really had a hankering for that I missed out on. I also may consider getting the hoodie to go with the ultra knit pants if it pops back while this promo is going on. The pants are intensely comfy, although there is very slight pillage after 3-4 wears.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Cheesygoodness: Not sure if you noticed, but the Supernova necklace in black and crystal is still full price :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. As luck would have it, I had just placed an order on Tuesday for the Wool Griffin coat (at $129.99) the sparlkling rose tissue tee and the new sepia colored favorite tank (back ordered) to make my order come to $150 for FS (code SW87B5). The rose tissue tee was the only item labled Final Sale. Then , of course the 20% off deal is announced today....which brings the price of the coat down to$104.19 and the tissue tee to about $12! I was ready to call and cancel my order and re-order the coat (with some peripherals to make the order come to $150 after discount) but decided to call CS first ....and I am glad I did! They were very gracious about applying the % discount to the coat and tee....although they said they would not be able to do it again!I figure it never hurts to try!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Just some items for the kids - it's nice that they are continuing to extend the free shipping on crewcuts. I couldn't resist the sherpa trapper cap for DS (it's still quite cold here in the NW!) and the bubble skirt for DD :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I had been waiting for any kind of sale to pick up the Wool Twill Nouvelle Jacket in Cinnamon and the Nonno Shawl Cardigan in white. So I just did, although now I'm going to concentrate on paying off my CC given the new hike.

    ReplyDelete
  26. love2shop4bags,
    thanks for pointing that out about the Supernova necklace. I thought I missed it as well.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the supernova jewellery too! However I've also been contemplating the libretto necklace, which I think might be more versatile... I'm totally shopped out so going to restrict myself to only one piece of sparkly jewellery!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am trying to decide between the Griffin and Friday coats. I haven't seen either IRL. Any thoughts!

    ReplyDelete
  29. the Libretto and Symphony necklaces have been around for a long time without going on sale. They must be top sellers. But I'm thinking sale time for them pretty soon..........

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm really debating ordering a pair or two of the toothpick ankle cords...should I pull the trigger? I don't even know what size to get, I'm typically a 26 or 27 in jeans and a 2 in JC bootcut cords with a decent amount of room.

    Thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I took advantage of the EXTRA20 to get the Elizabeth shirt in Black, Herringbone Tights in Heather Carbon Camel (wow, such a steal at $7.99!!!), slub ruffle v-neck in Dijon Mustard (will be great under my deep purple, navy, and light brown cardigans), and a studded skinny belt. This will be my last order for a long time -- I'm at the point where I now need to purchase those plastic bins in order to store my clothes. Need a bigger closet, too. Enjoy the sale, everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I also would appreciate any feedback on the fit of the Griffin coat. I wear XS/0 in most J Crew tops but don't want the coat to be too tight in the shoulders (problem area for me). Should I go with size 0 or 2 in the Griffin? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Midnight toothpicks in 26 snatched from my bag while I was debating... drat! I went for the jeggings from Madewell- they'll likely fit pretty similarly, right?

    Also went for the slouchy chinos in sycamore- I'm really into the look (though I understand why it's not age-appropriate for some people definitely- I'm 21 so I can still pull it off as long as I don't flinch.)

    White tretch slim shirt, heathered tights, and a black men's XS slim polo too. Not shabby?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have had the Lady Day Coat (spiced wine) in my shopping cart for a month now... finally pulled the trigger on the sale! Also got the super opaque tights in black and the merino rose corsage cardigan in black.

    I really, really wish they had smaller sizes for the cotton (mens) MacAlister boots, btw!

    ReplyDelete
  35. love2shop4bags, thanks for the tip on the supernova. I'm glad it's still around in the color I want, but that one is tagged for the "half price or less" wishlist!

    txmom, good one for the sale adjust! I got the "one time courtesy" line once already this season, so I'd really like to see a change in policy.

    Did anyone else feel like the cord pencil skirts ran at least a size big? I had to return one last week, but it looks like they're off the site now. I was kind of hoping for it to show back up while the % off was in effect.

    ReplyDelete
  36. There is nothing in the dregs of FS that is enticing to me. I have a few orders on the way so I should be happy. Now if it were a promo and regular priced merch I would be all over it!

  38. CheesyGoodness: Do you mean the vintage cord skirt? Yes, I felt that it ran a bit big, but I didn't order the next size up to compare (and now it looks like they are sold out). I called CS and asked about the denim skirt (now on sale) and the rep said that measurements, in the same size, between the two skirts were comparable -- not so, IMO.

    At the waist, the two skirts look like they have about a 1/2 inch difference. Also, the cord seems a little more forgiving, fabric-wise, though I haven't worn the denim skirt all day and JC denim certainly stretches.

    Whew! Long answer to your short question! :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. Does anybody have a comment about the cristal supernova necklace? not sure if it is to big and bulky.

    ReplyDelete
  40. OT - do the tall pants just have longer inseams, or do they also give you more fabric at the top?

    I love the toothpick cords, but they're out of my size in the regular lengths. I wouldn't mind rolling up the bottoms or getting them altered, if the tall sizes fit the same.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Heidi,
    I got the symphony necklace on sale in B&M for 69.99 - 20%. Another example of stuff being marked down in store and FP online.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Pink Cupcake - I've been looking at the del pelato shift. It is gorgeous! Does it fit TTS?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Scarlet, the size chart for pants says:

    Tall Sizes
    Recommended for women 5'9"-6'0". Catalog/jcrew.com only.

    Short Sizes Recommended for women who only want a shorter inseam (2" shorter), not a smaller overall cut.

    Petite Sizes
    Recommended for women 5'0"-5'4".
    Reduced overall proportions to better fit smaller frames.
    Catalog/jcrew.com only.

    Based on that explanation, I would guess that the tall sizes are like the petites in that they have a different overall cut, whereas for the short sizes the only difference is the inseam length.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Scarlet - I would call J Crew for the hip & waist measurements for the size(s) you are interested in. There is often a difference of anywhere between 1/4" or 3/4" between regular & petite sizes for hip & waist, in addition to the length being shorter. However, on one of the dresses I called on, they had a longer length listed than the regular size. go figure. Not sure how it works for tall.

    ReplyDelete
  45. OT, sorry, but if you want to see something funny do a general search for "ruffle" and scan through the 81 (!) women's items that come up. Ruffle much, JCrew?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Cass: Was the symphony necklace you the the crystal one with the black tie? Did you notice if the crystal libretto with black tie was on sale? TIA!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Scarlet - I called CS last year to inquire about inseams on the tall pants and no, they do not increase inseams on talls - only the length.
    HTH

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have the Griffin coat in charcoal. I typically wear a 2 in JC blouses and the Griffin was no exception. It was surprisingly snug in the shoulders and armpits but not enough to size up. I suppose if you wear many layers, it might be wise to go up one size. IMO the Griffin is a casual coat. It has a subtle A-line shape with no definition in the waist so it looks slightly baggy in that area. Otherwise, the fabric (100% wool) is top notch and feels soft. It's a very well-made jacket and definitely worth the $129 less 20%. Hope that helps.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Jodi, I think you mean the rise, not the inseam. The rise is the length from waist to crotch. The inseam is the length from crotch to floor.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Jeanne - yes, it is the rise that I was referring to - thanks for the correction!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi Issy,

    I found the Molly platform heels to be on the small side. I would order a half size larger.

    ReplyDelete
  52. audball, thanks for the input, that was the skirt I got. I was worried that in addition to the big-ness, the fabric seemed so stretchy that I was worried that it might bag after wearing it for a bit. I don't know why I keep thinking about it, since it's long gone. My brain gets into a shy did I buy that/return that loop sometimes, particularly if it's an item I'd looked at for awhile. Anyway, if by chance it does pop back, I'll probably size down one.

    ReplyDelete
  53. love2shop, yes it was the clear crystals with the black ribbon tie. I bought the last one (unless they had more in the back somewhere) and I didn't see the libretto in the store. I got it at the Prince St. NYC store, the one that has the "separate" jewelry store (i find they usually have a good selection of sale stuff left since it is bigger).

    ReplyDelete
  54. Tweetle Beetle: Thanks so much for the info on the Griffin coat. I think I'll stick with my regular size. It seems like a great price; I love J Crew coats!

    ReplyDelete
  55. hi, kerrie - i ordered the friday coat and returned it. it fit perfectly on top - my usual size worked for the shoulders, chest, arm holes, arm length. however, it was tight for me around the hips. i also didn't like that one of the buttons cut into the pocket area. when you put your hands in the front pockets, one hand fit all the way in, and the other was held up by the way the button was sewn. could be minor to some, but it bothered me. :) hope that helps!

  56. Womens's Checked Shirts on Sale

    The Easton store had the cotton checked shirts (item 23050) in navy on sale. They were $28- ish after the 30% off. I can't remember the exact sizes left but I think there were 4,6 and 8s.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Scarlet - I sometimes order the tall size in dress pants when the regular size is SO (I just get them hemmed) and it can be tricky because sometimes they do have extra room overall and sometimes they fit the same as the regular size. Best to call for measurements as Gigi suggested. Especially on final sale.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Final sale in store today was still at 30%. With regard to discrepancies between on-line prices and in-store prices, I found several items (some nice Jackies at $29.99 and the velvet Eden jacket, which is $59.99 on line but still $89.99 in store) were cheaper on line than in store, and asked the manager to match the prices, which she did, and then added the 30% on top of that. It certainly doesn't hurt to ask!

    Alexis, btw I saw that checked shirt you were raving about in a previous post on sale for $29.99 at the Short Hills, NJ b&m. There were a few of them there. It might be worth your time to give them a call.

    ReplyDelete
  59. maryw2062: Thank you for the heads up on the shirt. :) I called and they don't have my size left. And of course, I am just a few days outside the 7-day price adjustment period to get it. It's a good reminder that I should never buy full price from J.Crew! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ladies,

    I need your help. I can't decide if I should get the bling cardigan or the infinity necklace in clear, both on sale for additional 30%. The store has it on hold for me until tomorrow.

    Any thoughts? By the way, I already purchased two bling cardigans

    ReplyDelete
  61. OT: I just received the Chambray popover, and I'm very pleased with it. The fabric and color are the same as the Contrast Stitch Perfect shirt from last year, but the fit is the same as the Stripe popover which is also available now. If you missed out on the Contrast stitch shirt this would be a good replacement. I have the Contrast shirt but plan on keeping the Chambray popover because it's much better to use for layering under sweater vests, tees, cardigans, and looks very nice under jackets, as well. The popovers are generous through the midsection and look best tucked in or layered under something, IMHO. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Alexis

    The shirt does run fairly slim. I tried one on, and felt that I would need to size up. As you noted in your post, it might be reasonable to consider going up a size, as it fits pretty close to the body, and the arms are cut pretty slim, too.

    And you're right, buying full price is not always the best plan, even with the lower inventories. The only thing I bought full price this year (although I did use my teacher discount) was the tweed Oona pencil skirt, which I just loved. I'm glad I did, because I never saw my size in stock again after I bought it, and this was early in the fall.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thanks for the input about the cord pencil skirt sizing. Just decided to take the plunge and order a P0 since I hover between P0 and P2.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Just got home to find my most recent package delivered. I got the herringbone field pants in gray, which are on for a great price right now. They fit nice and are comfortable but why oh why do you have to purposely make things look ruined J.Crew?! The random tone-on-tone stitching that is supposed to look like patches is awful. From any more than 2 ft away the "patches" look like grease stains. Obviously I cannot wear these out of the house because it looks like I'm wearing dirty clothes. Has anyone tried to remove the stitching? Any success with that?
    :(

  65. scored a black carlin coat for less then $130 from B&M..woohoo

  66. I just got my on sale scout chinos. I had tried them on in the store and decided to risk the larger size, since I'm between. Glad I did!

    These are the distressed-but-not-destroyed ones. They have side pockets that don't gap! how cool is that?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Cass - great deal and find on the necklace! I haven't seen one in stores in ages. I'm sure they will be on sale online soon. They have to make way for the spring jewelry.

    ReplyDelete
  68. dickfiddy I feel bad. I bought the field pants a while back and returned them for the same reason. I should have posted about it here but I don't check this blog regularly. I thought they looked ridic with that stitching and when trying them on for DH he asked what I spilled on them already. WTH?

    I wonder if they would let you return them if you explained the issue. May be worth a try.

    There were tons of these available a while back and now they are almost all gone so maybe we are in the minority with the issue. Even so, it doesn't matter if you're stuck with a FS dud.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Elizabeth-

    I would say the del plato shift is true to size. The flower pattern at top is a nice touch as well It's a nice flannel type fabric and is soft to touch. The heather graphite is a little tough to match shoe wise, but I bought the charlie ruffle heels in chalkboard and it looks perfect. The first lady has this dress as well. Hope this information helps.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks, Verity, Gigi, Jodi and Baybaybay! Calling CS seems like the best plan, but now I'm having a hard time finding other items to fill up the order. Oh well, it seems like they have a lot left, maybe I'll just wait until they offer free shipping without a minimum.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hiedi, I agree, it's looks like there are plenty of the necklaces left online and they will have to mark them down soon. I had bought one full price a while back as a ride along and really liked it but forced myself to return it b/c I just couldn't justify $100 for ribbon and glass, essentially. So I was pysched when I found one on sale.

    On another note, as much as I complain about JC sometimes I have to give them props for their fast standard shipping. I placed an order at 12:30 last night/this morning as soon as the promo came up, and it just shipped--less than 24 hr turnaround. Now, hopefully all the items in the box are correct, but JC pretty much ships things faster than any other online retailer I frequent, with the exception of zappos.

  72. Will pass! I have been buying many things from Ralph Lauren lately, much more my style these days than Crew . Have fun!

  73. i picked up a couple of the nonno cardis (cream and grey) and cable dolce and shawl neck dolce...all in medium...during the boxing week 20% off final sale... the cardis fit great, but the cable dolce is way too loose and the shawl neck is tolerably loose... then before the sale was over i also picked up a bunch of the tees. sizing was again all over the place... i wish they would dress the models in the same size garments for every shot so we can haev a better idea of what boyfit/slouchy/slim/classic means. don't think i can bring myself to buy any more from a final sale if it means i'm stuck with the stuff...

    ReplyDelete
  74. Cass, great find on the necklace. I just bought one less than 10 days ago for full price. I haven't worn it yet. Do you or any JCAs know if I can return it and buy on sale instead? TIA

    ReplyDelete
  75. Sandy, so the Nonno fits TTS? And yeah, that shawl collar dolce was huge. Oddly the regular crewneck one was TTS.

    I missed a potential restock on everything I'm stalking, but just noticed that the stained glass shorts are already down to $50. 00 and 0 left

  79. Does anyone have comments on the fit, sizing, quality, color, etc of the Tulled Tiered Blouse available in sandstone and blackberry (#20575)? I'm debating about buying with the 20% off. TIA!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Does anyone know if the bling bling cardi is ruuning true to size? I was thinking about sizing up for layering purposes.

    What about the dream shawl cardigan item# 18177.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Savvyshopper - If you're talking about taking it back to a store and returning it and trying to buy it back immediately, it may be hard. A lot of stores won't sell it back to you immediately, because they know it's just a way of getting around their price adjustment policy.

    I was able to do this at my J.Crew (bought a dress, went on sale for like half price just outside the price adjustment window) ONCE, and I was only able to return and buy because they had the same dress (size and color) in stock. Other than that, I think they mentioned something about a 24-hour waiting period.

    It's still worth a shot - the worst they can do is say no. I'd try calling first.

  82. Does anyone here own a Jcrew Schoolboy blazer? If yes, I would really appreciate a comment on the sleeve length of the jacket..TIA !

  83. jv0407 - Irl pic of the dream shawl cardi here. Irl pic of the bling cardi & a link to another blogger in it is here.

    love2shop4bags - The tulle blouse looks pretty in both colors. that 1st tier is going to make or break the blouse depending on how it sits on the chest. It looks like it could cut a rack in half.

    Okha - There are 2 or 3 schoolboys, I believe.

  85. love2shop4bags: I'm also wondering about the tulled tiered blouse in blackberry, I went to my B&M a month ago and CS told me that they had two of them in the store cos the blouses were returned by costumers but they were sent back to the warehouse, I wonder why they were returned, please let me know if you find out something about that blouse, it's been in my shopping card for weeks and now that it is on sale I think I'm going to go for it.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Thanks Gigi and Laura for your feedback! I'm going to pass on it for now.

    Does anyone else have feedback on the Nonno cardigan? Thanks Sandy for your previous info.

  87. Laura: cdp said she tried the tulle tiered blouse and returned it - she found it too short and boxy. Those are two big no no's for me. HTH :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Thanks love2shop4bags, I'm short so the shortness of the blouse could be a good thing for me, but not being boxy, I think I'm going to pass as well or maybe wait until it goes like 29.99

    Lots of sale jewelry in the store today, some of which was SIGNIFICANTLY marked down. Like 75% and that was before additional 30%

  93. mommydearest: What were some of the jewelry pieces on sale and their prices? Was it any of the items in the online sale section now? TIA!

  94. mommydearest, I also ordered my usual size. IMO the shirt is tts or very slightly large.

  95. FFM, thanks for the shirt fb!

    Umm, yes, they had most of what's currently on sale online.
    I think the salon necklace was a little less (maybe)
    plus
    pastiche necklace & bracelet (not sure how much)
    stretchy pearl and fireball bracelets in pink and pearl $14.99
    grand piano necklace $29.99
    pearl and crystal avalanche necklace both colors $39.99
    several earrings that I haven't seen online in awhile but am not sure of their names
    and lots of older necklaces
    (prices are before additional 30%)
    Sorry, I know that is kind of vague. The jewelry is in the middle of the store, so it's hard to take note of what's there without attracting attention :)

  96. I would love to take advantage of this if the skirt I want would ever come back in my size. It seems like every morning when I check it's there in other sizes, just not mine. One of the disadvantages of living on the West Coast, I suppose...even when I check first thing, others have been up and shopping for hours. (And I'm just not committed enough to get up before 6:30 just to shop...)

  97. I was in my local b&m tonight, which I rarely buy from because it's far away and I'm only near it on the weekends when it's crazy busy, but they were having a 30% off final sale. I picked up a long belted down puffer coat in slate grey, size medium, for $105 + tax! It fits the same as a medium down parka I have from LLBean and seems like it will be just as warm, but it's longer and has snaps so I like it. The inside cuffs have fun little thumb-holes. The pockets have non-functional decorative snaps, which seems a bit weird, unless I'm missing something. Good basic classic piece that I'm sure I will use for many years.

  99. Gigiofca : Thanks a lot gigi ! That review was really helpful.. I ordered the wool heather carbon schoolboy blazer.. I guess it should fit the same as the other schoolboys.

  100. Do you think the Infinity necklace is worth it? I am thinking about getting it in clear.

    Thanks,

    Lisa

  101. Katherine - fantastic score! I love that coat and color. I keep hoping I'll be able to get one at a price I can handle. Enjoy your coat!

  102. for mommydearest -
    yes, i normally wear petite medium and small in BR. i went with the medium in the nonno cardis because i intended to wear them with long sleeve shirts to work. they are a bit boxy in the body and long in the sleeves, but overall length suits me fine (i have a "normal" waist length, it's just my short legs and arms that make me buy petite sometimes...)

    I washed the tees (extra gentle cycle on my awesome machine) last night, everything came out a bit nicer and drapier so i felt better, but the sequins on the floral tee partially disintegrated! will have to handle it differently from now on... the intructions to hand wash business just bugs me... who handwashes t shirts? now i sound like a guy who won't follow instructions...hahah...

  103. Does anyone know if the normal sizing in the Stadium-cloth boulevard trench would be too long for a 5'2 girl? Should I stick with petite? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Jenny - I'm 5'2" and you can see an irl pic of the boulevard trench in this post. It fit pretty good, except for the sleeve length. The p would really be the best fit for me, personally.
