I finally, finally made it into a local J.Crew, and just in time to take advantage of the crazy stacking sale (in store only alas), where the whole store was 25% (30% off with card), and an additional 25% off sale. That's a new one for me to see. It was quite picked over, but I still found a few steals. :)
In the full-price section, I spotted a sleeveless ponte dress in a white and blue stripe (must be in store only right now) and had to give it a try. I just really love the ponte this year, and it looked like it could be flattering. And it definitely was, hooray! I didn't feel it was too short, the armholes were spot on, and the shape worked for my body. This is my usual size 4.
I then threw on the white Beaded Rose Necklace and it was darling together. I felt the red version was overwhelming, but the white takes it down a notch and I do think it's more versatile. I can see it even in winter, paired with some winter whites.
I spotted the Boucle Jacket in Indigo Colorblock and did a double-take at the $29.99 (pre-discount) in store price (get a price match online if you're interested! They can confirm with a store that price, but it will be final sale). Well, with all the discounts, it came to just over $16 -- crazy! I went with the XS, as I like the fitted look with these types of jackets. A small would work as well, and would fit more under it come the winter months. I actually thought it was super cute paired with the dress and necklace. See it on Gigi here.
Did you shop the sale in store and find any great deals?
