Let the Shopping Begin....okay, continue.......

The Friends & Family Sale has begun my friends! Last night for the preview sale (cardholder exclusive) I wore one of my favorite dresses, honestly this dress is amazingly comfortable and easy to wear. The cardigan I am wearing here is a medium while my yellow one is a small. I like the fit of both...go figure! Have you stared shopping the sale?

I know a few of you have asked about my Maya Cardigan's when I wear them. I got a great tip from my Polyvore friend MIW-Make it Work that they are in the Crewlets now. So, I called my crewlet and sure enough there is a cotton version in the crewlet in a mustardy yellow, charcoal gray, purple, and light pink. At my crewlet they only had two yellows left so I had her hold it (and one of every color) so I can go look at them tomorrow....YEAH! I have been looking for a yellow Maya forever! I will be sure to take my camera along with me tomorrow.

I haven't started shopping at the Loft yet. Our tax-free weekend starts Friday, so I'll be headed there then. Can't wait to try on the yellow cardi that you've been wearing. :)

As for the maya, I love mine from last year and would love another! Wish I had a crewlet near me, but 2 1/2 hours is pretty far to drive just for a cardigan. :D

Funny... I picked them up in all the colors as well. They are nice... I found the fit to be also nice (I took my usual size) they were $42.00 with some in-store discount. My crewlet in Sunrise, Fl. was almost sold out already. So.. if you like them you better call one to order quick.

Just shopped the sale and picked up the yellow cardigan that you wear so well. Also got the blouson cami autumn bouquet, and a crew neck cardigan. I wanted the Pleated Fan Front-Stone Mosaic top, but all the sizes were grayed out. Luckily, I was able to find an Ikat Print Silk Button Down Shirt on super sale for $9.98. Can't wait for the package to arrive. Thanks again! :)

I can't wait to see how those cardi's work out!! The F&F is going to bankrupt me!

Anonymous-the Crewlet is just a nickname for the J Crew Outlet (Factory Store as they prefer to call it)

Millicrew-thanks for the additional info :)

Andrea-yay, sounds like you found some great pieces.

I was at Loft today. Wow! The $4.88 and $9.88 deals were fantastic. I think they must've had a bum year w/pants because most were $19.99 and under. Linen pants for $4.88. The thighs seem to be tight. I went up a size though and that solved it.

Ok, I totally got that Maya sweater at the crewlet but I didn't notice it in yellow...wonder if ours had it?? I picked it up in a soft purple-rose color...love! Its a great sweater...hope you get yours!! And hello gorgeous in that cute dress! I'm totally going to try that on when i go to LOFT on Thursday!

I spent a chaotic morning at LOFT this morning with my 4 kids in tow. Hahaha! Why do I leave the house with them? I had a great time and spent all my $$$ (and then some!) but I really wanna go back for that red dress. It's amazing on you and I should've tried it on today. My main concern is silk+4 kids= a mess right? What do you think? How do you keep that dress clean? ;)

I have to go back for a price adjustment anyway so here's to hoping the dress if awful on me 'cuz I can't afford it!

Sara said...

Oops - sorry to hijack the comments but I forgot to say that I'm dying to get to my local crewlet now. I've been dying for a yellow maya forever and can't wait to see how they look. *crosses fingers*

Thanks to the sale, I finished my school shopping early. I got a teal cotton cardigan, taupe tab sleeve ruffled top, twisted neck top in green, white slim cargo pants, cotton silk dobby striped skirt (my favorite), and a teal printed dress that I don't see online (the print almost looks tie-dyed). The red dress was awesome but I would have to get it hemmed. Maybe if it goes 40% off!

OMG, I am SO happy about the crewlet maya! Ok, I need to plan a trip and SOON. I missed out on the mayas last fall, but honestly, merino wool and I do not get along. I'm SO happy to see this one in cotton!
