Flash Sale: J.Crew Factory extra 30% off & Free shipping, plus Extra 40% off clearance

J.Crew factory is having an awesome flash sale that allows extra 30% off AND free shipping on already up to 50% items, plus free shipping. Code LEAVES.

I've been eyeing this toggle coat in warm almond, but don't know how the material is and the thickness of the coat. I also don't know in general how the fit is compared to their regular store. If you have tried on this coat please let me know. The coat comes in petite sizes as well which is a plus. After the discount, the coat is only $90 (compared to $258).

My other picks:
- factory draped pocket tank in bronzed moss
- factory classic button-down shirt in flannel (plaid, checks)
- factory intarsia cat sweater (so cute!)
- factory flared skirt (in 4 colors!)
- factory isabelle houndstooth pumps
- factory pencil skirt in double-serge wool (love the heather pine!)

Happy Monday! And happy shopping!

Fall Must Have: Quilted Jacket

If you are looking for a light weight quilted jacket in good quality and reasonable price, you are going to like this Zara one I'm about to introduce to you. I tried a size S in store a few months ago and loved the look and the fit on me. The quality was phenomenal even at the price point at the time ($99 sticker). I ordered an xs immediately from online and couldn't be happier with what I got. The golden hardware was very substantial and well made and the hood was removable (attached via a zipper and snaps). It became my go-to jacket in the fall when the weather started to turn chilly.  Later by coincidence I found out that the online price has been adjusted to $59.99. It didn't show a sale price, but simply adjusted. I was a bit surprised by that. When I took the jacket to the store, they were able to adjust it to the new low price. At $59.99 I think this jacket is a steal. Consider that it's only 10% of this similar Burberry version.

The jacket comes in two colors - Toffee and Navy. It has two usable pockets and a removable hood which is very useful in rainy weather. Since it's nylon, it slips on and off easily, which I really appreciate. It's not a heavy weight jacket, but I can layer underneath and use it into late fall.

Sale Alert: Kate Spade Friends and Family Sale - 30% off All Purchase

Kate Spade is running a F&F sale. All purchases 30% off including sale items. code F14FFUS.

Having owned the Cedar Street Maise for a few months, I can vouch for its style and easy of use. I reach for it whenever I need a cute purse but also need some room for more than just a wallet, a phone, and a small cosmetic bag.  It holds a lot, but still look very cute on a small frame.  It comes with 9 colors. Wow! Certainly full of options. Check it out when the price is so good!

It's also a good time to browse their jewelry section. I have collected a few pieces from them over the years. I have to report that the quality of their jewelry is solid. The gold plate has never tarnished. The pieces hold their original state and shine over the years. There are some really cute pieces. I'm sure you will find one that speaks to you and fits your personal style.

I personally do not own any shoes from this brand, but have enjoyed the Licorice pumps on other bloggers. I love this leopard version.

This sale ends Sunday, October 19th. Happy shopping!

Blue Chinese Porcelain Full Skirt Dress

*** Sale Alert, Ann Taylor extra 60% off all sale styles with code FLASH60 ending tonight.  Recommend the trench jacket (I sized up and got a 0P) and Trench dress (tts).

I've always loved the blue Chinese porcelain vases. In fact I have one in my house that is used currently to hold rice. :)  When my sister visited last month, we went shopping together - big surprise! I was ecstatic to see this dress hanging there so pretty!  My sister saw how much I loved the dress and bought it for me as my birthday present. Thank you, sis!  The dress didn't come in size 0P. The smallest it came with was a 2P. It ran just a tad big on me. I wasn't discouraged and plan to put it through a "shrink cycle" in the washer and dryer to see if it comes out fitting better.  Will keep you posted.  Since I delayed taking pictures of this dress for so long, I realized that it's now sold out online. However, I did find a very similar dress online here that looks just as pretty for only $17.55. I have never used AliExpress before, so I can't vouch for their quality and service. Please share you experience if you did order from them before. 

Outfit Details
Talbots dress (sold out, similar here and here)
Banana Republic pumps (old, similar here)
Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise (5 colors here, 8 colors here)
Chanel Sunnies (from BBOS, invite here)

Fall Look: Flannel Plaid and Leather

* I have gained 5 pounds in the last 2 years and grew out of some of my borderline too tight pants, including the size 0 Old Navy Rockstar legging jeans in Russet Brown. I am giving it away to my petite blogger friends and readers.  It fits a 23.5-24 inch waist. See it on me 2 years ago here.  See it on Jean here.  US only.  I'm charging $10 for shipping and handling, including paypal fee.  If you are interested please put it in the comment. Thank you. *

The temperature has taken a dramatic turn to the south recently.  It looks and smells like fall outside now, even though it's more than a week from the first day of fall.  If you don't live in a hole, you'd probably notice one of this fall's biggest trend - plaid. It's everywhere and hard to miss. I've always been a big fan of soft cotton shirts and love the fact that this particular one I found at H&M during the big store opening a week ago was in the color combo I absolutely adore - red and blue. To style, simply add leather. 

Outfit Details
H&M shirt (buy here)
Alice + Olivia leather skirt (old, current version here and here, similar here
Ann Taylor booties (love it so much I got the taupe latte color too, buy here)
Mulberry bag (old, from BBOS, invite here)
Prada sunnies (old, from BBOS, invite here)
