J.Crew Merino Tippi Sweater in Houndstooth Review

J.Crew cardmembers, in store and online, take extra 40% off fall sale items with code CARDMEMBER. All sale items here.

I have noticed that both J.Crew and Madewell have many more items on sale in store than online. I bought this sweater yesterday in store for $42 after discount, and later on noticed that the online is still full price at $98.  This sweater comes in two colors - Navy Graphite and Artichoke Green. Both are very versatile and easy to pair color combos. I love the houndstooth pattern and the unique shoulder patches. The sweater runs a bit small in my opinion, since I like my sweater a bit roomy and not too fitted. Size xxs was way too constricting for me so I sized up to xs. The sweater was made of a 12-gauge merino wool, which is nice and warm. Just in time for a cold front coming our way - tonight's low will be 24, and I will be getting up bright and early for a week long business trip to Santa Clara again.
I've been wearing my hair long and straight since college.  Last couple of years my hairdresser has been encouraging me to get a perm. I wasn't sure. So I put it off ... until last weekend I woke up thinking - why not?! So I got a haircut and a perm. I was very happy with the outcome. It's such a nice change for me and better yet, I didn't have to spend much time every morning taking care of it. Maybe the next goal is to get a highlight? (FYI, I have never put my hair through any kind of dying process before)
