French Connection Polka Dot Pullover Sweater

.. with a kitty face...

Animals on sweaters is a big trend this year that I haven't been able to fully appreciate.  Hens, horses, dogs,  you name it.  I think the reason why I don't care for them is because most of the designs make the animals too big, or too symmetrical. Polka dot sweaters are all over the place too. I like the patterns on most of the pieces, but they are so ubiquitous that I've been looking for something unique.  When you put the too trends together, you got a pretty amazing piece. This French Connection sweater is so cute in person that I couldn't wait to put it on when I got it. I bought it from Lord and Taylor online, but can't find the link any more. Sold out already? I will check back and see if they have more in stock later.
Looks pretty good peeking out from a coat too.

Michael Kors print blouse and J.Crew coupon

After 2 consecutive 14 hour work day, I felt pretty burned out. Yes, that was Friday and Saturday. Fortunately, I got to spend Sunday at home so I could take care of some of the chores - like laundry and bill paying. Posts will be sporadic from now on, as you all have noticed, and I will have very little time reading blogs. I do want to share a recent satisfactory purchase from Nordstrom. I love the pattern of this MICHAEL Michael Kors blouse very much. The golden buttons are adorable. It's made of 100% polyester. This is a heavier weight poly so it looks pretty nice in person. It's machine washable and dryable. A much welcomed change from the high maintenance silk blouses. I'm wearing a size Petite P, and it was sold out online already. You can check in store with item #577323 if you are interested. The petite version is 40% off right now and the regular sized version is 50% off. Sleeves are a bit long, but fit is very nice.

I wore this outfit yesterday for work.

Ann Taylor skirts and belt
 Michael Kors watch
Stella & Dot bracelet (won from AlterationsNeeded giveaway)

FYI. When I cleaned out my wallet today, I noticed a 20% off your next purchase of $100 or more coupon for jcrew.com when using J.Crew card. I can be used for sale and non-sale items.  It's expiring today.  If anyone is interested, please email me. I will send you the code.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

OOTD: Burgundy + Camel

During the closet organization, this little burgundy swing sweater jacket surfaced. After a little bit of ironing and coercing, it bounced back in shape and it reminded me why I brought it home in the first place. Oh and guess what came to mind in terms of pairing? Trusted camel wool skirt and Prada boots.

Sale Alert: J.Crew online 25% off EVERYTHING

J.Crew is having a site wide sale - 25% off & Free shipping on your order of $150+ with code OURTREAT. They don't run this kind of deal very often. Time to pick up your favorite coat or blazer in classic colors that never go on sale.
Don't for get to use ebates to get 3% back. Invite here.

My picks -
I'm wearing a size 0P which is just a tad too big, and I ended up keeping the 00P (not shown here). See Jean's comprehensive review of this coat here.

If you don't have a navy blazer already, do try this one. One of my favorite purchase of the year, and this classic color doesn't go on sale.
See my post on its comparison with Madewell Academy blazer. Yes, I ended up with the schoolboy.

This version has a velvety feel to it. Fits very similar to the schoolboy blazer in navy, just a lot smoother texture. I'm wearing last year's version in 00P. Love the red color.
Blythe blouses do go on sale, but only limited to some colors. I have not seen either black or white on sale before, so I picked up a few this time.  This is the neon rose color I picked up in the summer in 00P.

Again, classic or popular colors never go on sale.  The left and middle ones are crimson maple and spicy gold. The right one is No. 2 pencil skirt in Herringbone.

I'm wearing the factory version in XS. Love love love this jacket!!!

Are you shopping this sale? What are you getting?
