In spite of the horrible website design I am like an addict.ReplyDelete
Today I ordered the twist back tees for myself and each of my girls. Also snagged a popback of the glitter Mary Jane flats with embellishments. I don't remember how low pricing went on these but I know other shoes are double what they had been.
My gingham shorts have been reduced further to 14.99 so I asked for a price adjustment.
And sadly I have to report that I must return the glitter Mary Jane pumps I raved about in reviews. As beautiful as they are, sadly the 8.5 is just a little tight in this design. So if anyone is looking for them, they're stunning.
@Suz I completely understand. Saw sale items had been further reduced and bit. I bought both colors of the cashmere striped sweaters(planning on keeping one), the long sleeve shirt dress and tie front top. I had a $25 off coupon from my store closing and it expires in a two weeks so I figured what the heck.Delete
Great deal on those shorts now Suz. JessF thanks for the heads up on the stripe cashmere sweaters. Great price. I wonder how they fit?Delete
Same here. I emailed this morning for a price adjustment on the twist back tee (I admit feeling slightly guilty about this as I was fine paying $18. $8 feels like stealing. I picked up the Love First tee which went on sale. Several other tees got further cuts. It seems a little concerning how quickly things are being marked down...maybe J.Crew needs to take the hint that things aren't moving. Or go back to the extra % off sale for the perceived discount.Delete
Shopping Celle, I have the solid color of the crewneck cashmere sweater and I had to size up. It is on the short side and a slightly boxy fit. The sleeves are more bracelet length. My regular size small was too skimpy and the medium I have is sufficiently roomy (you can see fit on my IG, I wore earlier this week with the foulard easy pants and coral Gemma flats)Delete
While they aren't as bad as H&M, J.Crew seems to consistently end up with a TON of inventory on its hands that it struggles to move constantly. Madewell seems to do a better job of this, probably because they aren't trying to cater to so many different customers (which seems to be the secret to their success).Delete
Shopping Celle, I have the striped everyday cashmere sweater, in the ivory poppy colorway. I took my usual size (xs). The sleeves are bracelet and the fit is slightly short and boxy, but I really like it. I can still half tuck it in my jeans, it's soft and the color is very pretty.Delete
Thanks for the sizing info Anne & MBaker!Delete
Santa Monica tee went on sale. And, other items reduced further. Ordered the tee and the stripe cropped cardigan for a grand total of $44.ReplyDelete
I wore my Going Out blazer yesterday and I love it. It is a great alternative to have in my closet. I purchased the navy and will probably eventually get the black as well. Felt I should add a love here since I feel like all my posts lately have been complaining. There are a few gems out there but not nearly as many.ReplyDelete
I love that blazer, too. A rare gem. I have the black.Delete
I have it in grey and in black, and love it in both colors! It is both polished-looking and comfortable.Delete
I thought I was going to be done with my cycle of order/returning, but the additional markdowns got me. As I said before, I really don't mind no extra %off if final sale stays away. I picked up the elephant Marties in 1 size up, the gingham shorts (also 1 size up), and the bandanna Tippi. Hopefully they arrive before my Europe trip so I can take care of any returns.ReplyDelete
I found the elephant Martie in my store in 4T (surprising they had a tall) last Saturday. They are truly fun! Now I have to go see about a price adjustment, since they did drop again. My Mom found a chain of elephants necklace in her costume boxes, so I have the perfect accessory.Delete
I was also thinking about the gingham shorts, but I've been able to restrain myself for a few hours. I have two pair of new shorts I snagged in the winter sales, which is all I need. I am seeking an excuse however...
I ordered a few new things from the 40% off promo and am quite happy with them. I feel like J. Crew can be OK if they just amp up the styles more.ReplyDelete
This is almost silly but I got the knot back tank which I've been trying to grab for awhile. Reviews said it ran small so I ordered the green in small and black in XS. I love the texture of the cotton and the way the knot makes it actually fit my torso. The green works really well with the wide leg camo pants. I think for summer it will look great together with laceup sandals.ReplyDelete
I ordered a pair of Slim boyfriend jean in charles wash for $31.99. The reviews say they run large but I ordered my regular size. I was tempted to order the next smaller size, too, just in case. Has anyone tried them on? How's the sizing?ReplyDelete
Jeanne, I just bought those myself - I would say it depends on how ‘boyfriend-y’ you want them to fit. I went down a size even though I found my regular size fit fine in the store, because I was worried they’d just be too slouchy after a day’s wear.Delete
Thanks, cagliari67. I really like comfy, looser fitting jeans but I also hate when they stretch out and are falling down by the end of the day. I may wear these around the house for a little bit before I remove the tags to see if the fabric stretches excessively.Delete
I just got off the phone after successful price adjustments on a lot of items I ordered in the last two weeks. WOW! My Parke topcoat is now under $65. A terrific black silk print dress is $40. Elephant martie shirt at $20. Not to forget an entire wardrobe of New Balance gear for my husband and stepson at awesome prices. When I ordered those things I hoped for a further sale, but was happy with the price as it was. Of course, I went and spent some of the savings on a robe for me and a running tank and shorts for hubs to wear if it ever gets warm here again.ReplyDelete
Thanks J. Crew! Especially for the Parke topcoat, which I actually wore yesterday due to the chilly weather. It is a well made coat, and I like the hand of the wool.
