  1. I got two things in the mail from LL Bean yesterday.
    flannel shirt in navy tartan

    I'm a 6 or 8 in JC and got this in a size small. Material is suuuuper soft and warm and I like the fit - it's perfect in the shoulders and the length is good for peeking out under the bottom of a sweatshirt. Sleeves are a touch short but I'm 5'10" and have long arms. I got this since I missed out on all the cute plaids JC has this season. This morning I even saw 2 I wanted on popback at JC and they were gone from my cart before I could check out! Pic of the Bean shirt on my instagram, navybluecardigan

    Also from Bean, the
    pro stretch jacket in bright clover

    I LOVE this green color and looks so great layered under my navy winter coat. Got this in a small it fit is great and sleeves are even long enough.
    I can not believe I have ordered from Bean twice this year! I never buy from them and am kind of worried I'm turning into my mom. Seriously, I was worried I was "giving up" when I bought a flannel shirt from LL Bean. I wore it yesterday though with skinny jeans and a tall pair of brown boots, looked very current :D

  2. Does anyone have experience with Club Monaco items? I happened to pass their store and went inside for the first time to browse and although I don't need another sweater ever, I tried a cashmere sweater and "liked" until I saw the price tag $$$! (Granted, it was a cashmere sweater) Ha! Can anyone comment on their quality, online ordering experience, do they ever have good sales?
    I am completely new to this brand. Once in awhile I've seen JCAs wear their item or say that CM rather than JC got their money this weekend :). TIA!
