Joe Fresh Pop Up in LA

Hi.  I received an email about a Pop Up Joe Fresh is having in LA to celebrate their launch in 700 JC Penney stores.  I wish I lived on the West Coast so I could check it out.  Sounds like fun!!

Joe Fresh in America

I'm so excited.  I just got an email that JC Penney now carries Joe Fresh.  I've seen some cute stuff on the blogs from Joe Fresh and always wished we could buy it here.  Now we can.  The best part is free shipping on orders over $75 and always free returns in store.

Question:  How does sizing run compared to J. Crew?

My picks:

Joe Fresh Print Crewneck Top $16

Joe Fresh Print Tunic $29

Joe Fresh Boatneck Eyelet Tee $19

Joe Fresh Slim-Fit Sateen Pants $29

Minty Tweed

My daughter got these pants when they first came out, but I wasn't a fan.  The more outfits I saw her make with them, the more I wanted them.  I was never able to catch my size on popback and the price for new ones on Ebay was ridic.  I was finally able to purchase these at a great price from the J. Crew Aficianado Looking to Sell blog post a few weeks ago.  You know how I love mint, so this outfit was a no brainer.

A Spring In My Step

One of the big trends for Spring is floral shoes.  Technically it's not Spring yet, but I got these pumps on sale at the Nine West Factory Outlet and couldn't wait to wear them.  BTW it is 90 degrees here today so I can get away with Spring/Summer clothes.

What do you think of the floral shoe trend?  Will you be partaking?

Lots of Dots

I picked up this blouse at Ann Taylor this week-end.  I haven't shopped AT much lately as everything I like is poly or doesn't fit right.  They sent me a $15 gift card for my birthday so I just had to spend it.  I found this blouse in the sale section for $39 plus 30% off.  With my $15 gift card I walked out with it for $12.  AND it is silk and cotton - no poly to be found.

Pink Party Pumps

It's my birthday and I'll wear what I want to.  There were several comments on my Barbie shoes today.  I would have never ever worn these shoes when I was 20 and they would have been appropriate.  One of the best advantages of old age is doing whatever the heck you want.  Only 364 days before I hit the big 5-0.  My husband thinks I will cry :)!

I picked up this denim shirt at the J. Crew Factory this week-end for about $35.  I missed this top at the retail store and then could never catch it in my size on pop-backs, so I was happy to see it show up at the Factory.  I would say this top runs true to size to a little large.  I wear a 2 or 4 in numerical sizing and this is a small.  There is no button or zip so I think a XS would have been tough to get in and out of and I wanted to be able to wear a shirt under it like they show on the model on the website.  This top is kinda tunic-y so I think it will look cute with shorts and sandals too.

 I also bought the Raindrop Lace top in Neon Azalea for about $35.  After much stalking I was able to get the retail version of the Raindrop Lace in navy, but could never catch the pink one in my size.   I can see no difference between the factory version and retail version.  The factory version even has numeric sizing.

 It was my lucky week-end at the Factory store.  I also love that the Factory will stack promos.  Most everything in the store was 30-40% off.  They were handing out 10% coupons at the door.  And I had a 20% coupon from my last online order.

Lazy Paisley

These pants are a prime pattern mixing partner, I just wasn't in the mood today.  So black and black and more black was the easiest thing I could come up with.  So lazy.

Happy Friday!

Hearts & Roses

I thought I would do Valentine's Day subtlety with a pave heart and sketchbook roses.  8000 people asked my why I wasn't wearing red.  Next year I'll wear a red sweater and be done with it.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Fresco Floral

I have been obsessed with these pants ever since they came out, but couldn't justify the steep price even when they went on sale.  I was able to grab them last week on Ebay at a great price and new with tags :)!  Now I just need the matching top to go with them......
