Just when I thought I was being good trying to resist the J.Crew sale, 40% (online) and 50% (in stores) promos have to come along and git me. I always start out with many, many items in my cart, and then I pull up my online wishlist (via Polyvore) to keep me in line. The wishlist is solid, and I've pruned away at it diligently. I don't want to buy sale just to buy sale. Especially when final sale is involved! I'm a bit lucky in that I've tried on soooo many things, that I'm quite certain about sizing and such. (Not that they haven't had their quality issues, but I return if it's a quality issue.)
Anyway, several items on my wishlist did make it all the way to this amazing sale, and I feel quite happy with the price paid for them all. Normally I like to think that if it's something I truly want, I should be ok with paying full price. Sorry, not in the case of some of J.Crew's over-inflated pricing. :)
I'm in a rush this morning, and since it's insanely freezing outside, I'll share the Collection Purl-stitch Snood and Cashmere Glittens in heather flax. The snood was crazy-high in price to start, but this color is my hands-down favorite. It's the color to which I'm always drawn and for which I will always reach. The snood is big and cozy and I could probably wear it with just a heavy sweater and be warm enough. Love it. The texture is a nice touch. The glittens are going to replace my (mixed-material) JC glittens from a year (or two?) ago. Loved those, but they've snagged and don't have the mitten-topper option. I'm sooo happy with these. I wasn't expecting it, but the cashmere is super thick and cozy and soft. IMO, well worth the current promo price. I have super sensitive hands/wrists when it comes to gloves, and usually hate them all, but these I wore in the bitter cold and they didn't bother me as much as other materials do. Plus, they're so cute. :)
Have you succumbed to the sale? I'll try to get some more Collection sale reviews up by tomorrow!
Have a great day!
