A look, a sale, and a secret

Make sure to scroll all the way down for some top secret info:)

Yesterday I decided to recreate a "summery" version of the outfit from the Fall Essential mailer. The print of this top reminds me of the watercolor garden print that J Crew had out over the spring. The more I style the new line, the more deeply in love I fall with it. My newest obsession is this tee with this cardigan in vintage yellow....yummy! Good thing they have upped my hours
Can you resist the extra 30% promo at J Crew? I obviously can't because as soon as I got the email, I became a shopping fool. Then I decided to face reality and cut my cart down lower and lower...sniff (I am still not supposed to be shopping afterall) until I could hit the $150 free shipping. Then I lowered it some more which really hurt because I hate J Crew's shipping fees. I found a secret link that took me to an on sale colorway (heather stone) of the tissue sequin tank  that I just couldn't pass up along with this cardi that has been calling my name for months. There must have been a lot of people shopping the sale because it took me 20 minutes to get my order through because their systemcart kept crashing. I mentioned it casually in my BizRate survey and they took the shipping fees off.....whoo hoo!Today is the last day of the sale, did you grab anything?
 

And now for the top secret tid bit. The rumors are true, Loft's friends & family sale is coming up.....quick! It will run from August 3rd through the 8th (with a special preview day on the 2nd for cardholders). I have a link that will allow me to email out the 30% off coupons on Friday so if you'd like me to send you one, just leave a comment with your email address.

gem said...

Hi, long time lurker here! :) You look gorgeous as always. Honestly, I don't know how you do it because I'm just a single working gal and I would be lucky if I am half as stylish as you are!


Please send me the Friend & Family email to:

gemini4er@yahoo.com

Do you know if they would still be offering the free shipping then?

Thanks in advance!

N2 said...

I bought 2 Jackie cardigans from J.Crew sale since I saw you wear those a lot and like them.
I've been wanting to try Loft and this 30% is perfect. Please send me the F&F coupon. My email is LuzLoop at gmail dot com. Thanks so much.

thanks bunches!!

Debye said...

Sydney- The F & F is for everyone, it just starts a day earlier for cardholders (the 2nd) instead of the third for the rest of us! As for the 40% off sale, we never know until the night before (except for F & F) when a sale is coming or when it ends;(

Gem-I am not sure when the free shipping will end but I am guessing it won't be during the F & F sale but I could be wrong!

Christy said...
