Today I had two returns to make at J Crew which means return shopping...whoo hoo! Perfect timing with the 25% off promo on all purchases over $150. Today was one of those days when I liked everything I grabbed and if my budget had allowed they may have all come home with me.
Bright Dahlia Wool Lolli Pants $118 (Size 8) These pants have been all the buzz since gracing the catalog. I hadn't thought too much about them since I usually gravitate to skirts but when I saw them in store I had to try them out. They are so comfortable and the color is stunning. What I didn't expect is that they are lightweight and unlined which works well for me (since it doesn't get too cold in San Diego). I found the fit TTS. I used to wear a 6 in their pants but since I have gained some weight the 8's are much better (I always have worn and 8 in the skirts though go figure). The 6's would have fit but they didn't have any left and I honestly think the 8 will work better anyways.
Silk Bloussana Tunic $98 (Size 6) When I first tried this on my initial thought was no way...the sleeves are a bit poofy at the shoulders but that lasted under a minute and I really fell for this top. It is soft and flowy and fits TTS.
This is a new dress that was in the store in denim and a soft pink. I don't see it online yet but the price was $128. Call me crazy but I like this one. I would never wear it bare legged like this but I can see it with leggings and riding boots.....once it goes on sale that is. $128 for a casual dress is too much for me. This is a size 8. I found it TTS if not a little small
Starry Night Cardigan $128 (size M)-this cardigan is gorgeous IRL. It is really light and although it is a jersey knit you would never know just by looking at it. This runs a little large. Small would have worked better but my store didn't have any. I tried on a XS but the arms were too tight.
Lace Rows Tank on sale for $69.99 (Size 8). This runs TTS, I usually wear a 6 in these tops but they only had an 8 left. I like this top a lot better then the Lace Love Tank I returned. I didn't find it too boxy but is is a looser fit through the waist
Drapey Sequin Tee $79.50 (Size Small). I really loved this tee. It sold out online but there were plenty in the store in this colorway. The fit is great and I was able to size down easily. One thing though....it is itchy. In fact the lady in line in front of me was returning hers for that exact reason.

And here is a little bonus I found when checking out. The glass ornament earrings for $14.99. With the current promotion they came to $11.24 down from $50. Woo Hoo
