J.Crew French Hen Theme

First time I noticed the J Crew French Hen design was on Gigi's "J Crew - french hen sweater" post. I was never a fan of a big object in the middle of your front design (think the popular big heart design), and the hen just looks silly now. If I had to pick one, I much prefer the "acorn blue" over the "navy mist".
Acorn Blue
Navy Mist
Then I came across J.Crew Aficionada's post on the scarf version, and just had to check it out in the store. I felt like I played a "I spy a French Hen" game in the store yesterday roaming up and down the clean and immaculate store I never had a chance to go to in Legacy Place shopping center.
I noticed that the French Hen in a smaller scale, in a repeated pattern is a much more adorable design than the big fat plopped right in the middle one on the sweater. How adorable is the iphone case with some hens randomly splattered around. :)

What do you think of this J Crew design? Yay or Nay?

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Camel and Green : Artdot shorts

This is today's work from home outfit. I can't seem to get enough of these shorts and reach for it whenever I can. It reaches the ultimate design criteria I have: look, comfort, low maintenance.
Outfit Details
H&M top (forever thankful to Jean)
Madewell shorts in camel (buy here)
Talbots peeptoe slingback (buy coral version here)
J.Crew Edie purse (spicy gold and hyacinth colors on sale here, use LOVEIT to get 30% extra off today)
Chanel sunnies (from BBOS, invite here)
J Crew skinny plaque belt (similar here)

Sale Alert: J Crew 30% off final sale

With code LOVEIT...

I'm very late to this post, because it's the last day for the sale already, so you probably have heard about it one way or another. I haven't been very enthusiastic about this sale because I just put an order earlier this month, and I'm just too lazy to try to stalk items in my size pop up.  That was until this morning, I accidentally found out that the famous No. 2 Pencil Skirts in double-serge wool are on sale from $130. The price is very good for the quality and the amazing colors of this skirt. Let's hope it'll fit me. I have tried this skirt twice in previous seasons but neither time it worked. The waist was just too big on me. I'm hoping this season they made it smaller. I picked the crimson maple (deep burgundy) and the spicy gold (mustard) color and couldn't resist the temptation to try out the No. 2 pencil skirt in herringbone in Romance Pink. (Was $138)  Another good news on the double-breasted gold-button blazer I even decided to keep for $70. It's now $55.99. Yay! Don't be fooled by the .99 price, it's not on final sale. The dreaded "ALL SALES FINAL" in RED didn't show up on this item.  In the end, this is what I ended up ordering. None of the items showed up as FINAL SALE.
Here's how the blazer looks on me:
Hope you find this post helpful. Thank you for reading. Have a great Thursday!

Neon Rose

I've been crazy about silk(y) camp shirts recently. I don't seem to be able to get enough of it. I'm still eyeing some basic colors, after experimenting with some pretty vivid brights from J.Crew. This is my first Blythe blouse and I'm loving it. The only thing I'm wary about is the cleaning part. I'm hoping I can put this one in the sink to avoid dry cleaning.
Outfit Details
J.Crew Blythe Blouse in Neon Rose (past season color, this season colors here)
Zara shorts
Aldo sandals
Chanel M/L flap
Alex Woo leo necklace (buy here)

My best friend from college is visiting Boston tomorrow. I can't wait to see her! Last time I saw her was in Shanghai in 2008. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Sale Alert: J.Crew Extra 30% Off Sale Items

SHOPNOW is back! (Big thanks to JCA for sharing. It's an obsession of mine to check the blog every morning for updates. This code is not a published code on J.Crew website.)

Don't dismiss this sale just because you think the extra 30% off is on the final sale items. You will find that code "SHOPNOW" works on any sale items, including non-final sale items. The way to figure out final sale vs. non-final sale items is to look at the price. Items ending with .99 are final sale items. Items ending with .50 are not. You can always click on the size and color to double check. Final sale items will have "All sales final, no exchanges, no returns. Final sale is valid while supplies last." sign on it.  I did some browsing and ordered the Blythe Blouse in silk that I've been eyeing for ages. In the mean time I couldn't help but notice that some of the new arrivals are also on sale. With extra 30% off and a chance to return the item, I had to give this double-breasted gold-button blazer in vintage burgundy a try.

Here are some other new arrivals on sale:
Merino V-neck sweater in so many beautiful colors.
Tippi cardigan in leopard
Colorblock Sequin Tank - I love it in sea mist navy
Optic-dot boatneck tee in vintage champagne
Skinny-stripe tee dress
Minnie pant in stretch twill in vibrant flame - this might be your chance to fulfill your red pants dream!
3" chino short - comes in 7 colors. Love the port wine.

Are you shopping this sale?

Update: Just found out that all Edie purses are on sale for $198.00 and eligible for 30% off as well. And they are not final sale.  It comes with 7 amazing colors.

 Here is how the oasis green (last season color) looks on me.
See the flame color worn by lovely Jean, sagebrush by Elle, oh, and oasis green color by her again with my favorite J.Crew polka dot skirt, and classic pecan worn by stylish Kelly.
