I want to do a quick post of some of my new purchases this month that I really love and recommend.
Jcrew Factory Classic Crewneck Cardigan in Chartreuse, size xxs. Great fit and color. The color in real life is less lemony and more mustardy. on sale for $12. I love the fit so much that I picked up a couple of more colors for spring - bright azalea and extravagant green.
Cambridge Cable Turtleneck Sweater in Antique White (size xxs) Similar here. I love the chunky sweater. It doesn't look too bulky. The length and the fit is great. It's very warm, so for me who runs a bit warmer than normal can only wear it in the middle of winter. The fabric is a bit scratchy, but not too much. I was wearing a tissue turtle neck underneath so no problem at all.
Loft Julie Ankle Pants in Tile Print Doubleweave Cotton (size 00P)
I mentioned these pants in this post, Great fit.
I "borrowed" the Celine mini luggage tote from Bag Borrow and Steal and LOVE it. I've been wearing it to work everyday and taking it to the mall for shopping trips too. The bag itself is on the heavy side, if you are not used to it. I weighed it just for curiosity - net 2.5 pounds! Here's the Celine mini against my Philip Lim Pashli mini (worn here). They are cute in their own ways, right? Here's the invite to BBOS.
Petite Schoolboy Blazer in Velvet (size P00, in Navy). This is by far my favorite purchase this month. Love love love the color and the fit. Can't take it off!
Boy Shirt in Grey Tartan (size 00, heather grey red), no longer available, similar here, f21 version here, old navy here.
I can't find this forever 21 blazer online, but found a very similar longer version here for $14.99 (half off). It's a good blush colored blazer for spring and summer.
J.Crew factory polka-dot popover in xxs.
I've been acquiring polka dots left and right recently, and you can see in this post. The blue one is from the regular jcrew store (not factory), and the quality of the two popovers are very similar. The factory one actually doesn't wrinkle as much.
Madewell cropped lace blazer in size 2. Lace and blazer, for $30, I was sold instantly. I got this in store and couldn't find a size 0, and the size 2 fits me decent, for a casual loose fitting look.
Another favorite Madewell find this month is this spotted snowfall sweater in camel. I was eyeing this sweater for a long time and couldn't believe my eyes when I found it on sale for half off in store with size xs left. I picked it up without any hesitation. Very soft and cozy.
Ok, that's all for today. I want to close by sharing this Instagram Tay posted the other day. I was roaring with laughter. This is how I scored a number of J.Crew sold out pieces. Anyone else?
