J Crew Fall 2014: Tippi Sweater, Endless Shirt in Stripe, Cascade Blouse in Blue Floral, Turner Pant, Collection Dulci Calf Hair Kitten Heel in Leopard

I'm just going to get to the rest of these as quick as I can.

Tippi Sweater, Large, Heather Mineral - I am a Medium in Tippis. I think that would be better especially when layering with the Endless Shirt in Stripe.
Pleated Lattice Skirt, Size 8, Navy {review}
Collection Dulci Calf Hair Kitten Heel in Leopard, Size 7 - These run half a size big and I would need a 6 1/2. I added these to my wishlist as soon as I saw them online. The shorter heel is perfect for everyday wear, especially if you are on your feet a lot.

Endless Shirt in Stripe, size 6, Burgandy - The fit was good in the size 6. I would go up to an 8. I wasn't sure what to do with the cuffs on the sleeves. They are very long and I'm guessing should probably be cuff. I like that the interior button placket has a grosgrain accent the same color as the shirt.

Cascade Blouse in Blue Floral, Size ? - I forgot to take a pic of the size but looking at this picture I'd say this is a size 8 as it looks big. It was very comfortable on and the cascading sides give me just enough arm coverage. I've added this to my wishlist.


Turner Pant, Size 6, Safari - Drapey and big. I'd grab a 4 or Petite 6 for the best fit. Nice olive color though. I have the Drapey Drawstring Pants in black that I bought at a ridiculous price so I'm good on that style.

J Crew Fall 2014: Merino V-Neck Cardigan, Silk Sleeveless Blouse, Pleated Lattice Skirt, Suede D'Orsay Flats, Vintage Denim Jacket

My VPS was lovely enough to pull together some outfits with the new arrivals and she did not disappoint. After looking at everything online it was nice to see a lot more basics than over-the-top beading, ruffles, embellishment. But I was a little bothered by the longer lengths on the shirts. Then my VPS said it reminded her of Clueless fashion! And now I totally see it, and quite love it too.

Merino V-Neck Cardigan, Medium, Vintage Cabernet - The fit is TTS with 10 colors to choose from. I have a Jackie in this color so there is no need for an additional cardi in the same color.

Suede D'Orsay Flats, Size 7, Highland Gray - These run a half size big. I tried on the 6 1/2 in the black and they were a much better fit. I would definitely get the gray if a promo comes along.

Silk Sleeveless Blouse, Size 8, Vintage Cabernet - This size was too big. Below, the black colorway is in a size 6 and the fit is much better. I love the color and that this is 100% silk and not Poly, which could have easily been done. I bought this color in the size 6. I think I will be able to use it a lot with various bottoms I already have. I think the Navy and Ivory would be two other great colors to get. Those colors can be mixed with so much.
 
   

Vintage Denim Jacket in Recycled Indigo Wash, Medium - I threw this denim jacket on over the Silk Sleeveless Blouse and loved the look. The jacket is currently on promo for $110 plus an additional 40% off. I ordered it this morning.  

Pleated Lattice Skirt, Size 8, Distressed Quartz - I unexpectedly loved this pink tone. The skirt surprised me too. The size 8 was the best fit and my more consistent bottom size. The size 6 pulled the latticed part just a little along the hip line. The length, at 18 inches, is perfect for me, but unfortunately not offered in Tall sizes.
  

What do you think of Outfits 1 & 2? There's more to come over the next few days!

Que Bella: 70s Style

Last Friday night had me getting out of the house for a cousin's birthday party. The theme was 70s and we were encouraged to dress up. Well, talk about a fashion conundrum! The 70s had so many styles from continuing the hippie trend from the 60s to jumpsuits to disco fashion (polyester!) to midi skirts to high-waisted shorts.

I went straight to my closet and found my Lucky Brand Legend High-Rise Trouser Jeans {polyvore}, my Nimbin Peasant Blouse and Nori Wedges. I parted my hair down the middle and straightened it.


It seems most people went the disco way a la John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. There was even a "John McEnroe" complete with a curly wig and headband. Pretty clever!

My guys come home today! I am so excited and pray this day goes by fast. Of course, now that I've said that out loud it will be the slowest.day.ever. HAHA!

Have a Great Day!

LOFT: Wallpaper Floral Maxi, Lou & Grey Cabana Stripe Dress, Floral Bustier Romper

asdfws

Wallpaper Floral Maxi, size 6 -

Lou & Grey Cabana Stripe Dress, Small - I really loved this dress and almost all of the Lou & Grey items in my store. Several items were diminished to one or two sizes so it seems to be very popular. This is a great little throw-on-and-go dress or a perfect little beach-cover-up to evening dinner dress.

Floral Bustier Romper, size 6 - Though I felt super silly grabbing a romper to try on I couldn't help loving it once it was on. I love the print and color and the size 6 was perfect. This would be an around-the-house/weekends only outfit so I'll wait to see if it makes it to sale to buy it. 

That wraps up my Loft visit. And just in time, as J Crew retail and Factory have new arrivals! 

Today is the last day to take 60% off full-price items at Loft, including the Gingham Seersucker Cropped Pants and the Modern Straight Cuffed Cropped Jeans in Floral, which I reviewed yesterday {here}. 

Happy Shopping!
