Sale Alert: J.Crew Online Only Extra 40% off & Free Shipping with Any Order

With code STYLE40. You know the drill... What I like about this sale is the Free shipping with any order part, so that I don't have to add fillers to get to $175 for free shipping. A lot of the pieces have very limited sizes left. However, I was surprised to find these Edie Purses in 4 different colors on sale for less than $120 a piece after discount. I'd collect all the colors if I didn't put myself on a purse buying ban.
Digging the navy and the burnished rose!

Sale Alert: J.Crew Factory Extra 30% off (Girls' Maritime-Stripe Dress)

J.Crew Factory is having an extra 30% off everything sale with code XOFACTORY. (Feb. 13 - Feb 17)
There are a few pieces that caught my eyes, but if you are petite I highly recommend that you try this Girls' Maritime-Stripe dress. I'm wearing a size 14 in this picture. The fit is a casual loose fit, but looks very nice with a belt. It can be worn alone, or over a turtleneck; with tights or without. The possibilities are endless.

Berry Cable + Bow Cord with Celine Mini Luggage Tote

I found this cable sweater (officially called Aran-Stitch) at Talbots store and was surprised how beautiful the pattern was (not so much in the online photo for some reason).  The color (apple candy) is a rich dark berry and is flattering on most skin tones. I also loved the orange color in store but decided against it because it didn't do much for me for some reason (probably because of both skin color and hair color). Online has a wine color in miss sizes (not in petite) that I also love. I compared the petite size P with miss XS for this sweater and the differences were minimal. If you don't mind a bit longer lengths, you'll have a much larger selection of colors online.

The ribbon bow corduroy is from Crewcut (size 14) and fits great on me. It's not one of my everyday pants but is so unique and lovely I decided to keep it. It's a way cheaper version of the J.Crew adult version here. I look like a Christmas present, don't I?

I got so sick of the looks of pumps that I decided to change it up a little bit on my choice of footwear. These Coach lace up booties are still one of my favorite purchases from Marshalls. 

A few words about this Celine mini luggage tote after having it for a week or so. 
  • It's heavy (2.5 pounds)
  • It's amazingly versatile (goes with pretty much every outfit I put together)
  • It's large (fits a lot but on the other hand I don't like to put too much in it since it was already heavy)
  • Leather is amazing - soft but extremely tough.
  • Some part of the trims are peeling (that's how it was when I got it) which surprises me since I didn't expect the make of an expensive designer bag to have that problem, period.
  • Looks borderline ridiculous on me. I'd go a size down if I purchase. A micro would be perfect. For reference I'm 5 feet. Mini measurement (12x12x7), micro measurement (10.5x11x5).

Blush, Wine, and Brown

Happy Saturday! The wind last week was something wasn't it? It woke us all up at about 5 am and no one slept after that. The howling was something that I never experienced before. One of our window screen fell off and we missed a few pieces of shingles. Then there was this 60 degree weather for a day. Crazy!  I went to the mall today with Jasmine and mother-in-law to do some returns and MIL wanted to get something for her grand daughter for her birthday. Abercrombie Kids was having a redline sale of extra 70% off. We came out with a big bag of clothes for Jasmine and Tristan.  Most of the pieces were under $10. This cute leigh blazer is only $25 in store. Compare to the A&F version for $300.  Too bad the size M is a bit too tight on Jasmine and they didn't have size L in store. Their customer service is not the best - no store locating service or holding or shipping. Come on. We did find a very cute polka dot legging jeans for her for only $6. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. See you soon!
