I am ABSOLUTELY GOING TO DIE FROM EMBARASSMENT. I know it! I will! My death certificate will read: Cause of Death: Embarassment. Crap! Why didn't someone just stop me when I was suffering from temporary brain-fuck??? What the hell was I thinking when I was shopping EVERYDAY online at J Crew in the 3 weeks leading up to Christmas?
I just spent the last hour getting my J Crew returns together for my international trip to a J Crew store tomorrow. Oh My Gosh! I am absolutely doing to die! I cannot believe the number of items I need to return.
I AM SOOOOOOOOOOO EMBARASSED!!!I have 3 very large J Crew bags full of stuff to return. Have any of you returned that many items in one go?
Since my last trip to J Crew which happened to be Black Saturday, I have been on a buying binge. Yes, I am party to blame. But J Crew is to be blamed as well! If they didn't taunt me with all those awesome sales of 20% off, 30% off and Free Shipping to boot, I would not be in the predicament I am in right now! Since I have no will-power when it comes to Sales, I literally bought everything I wanted. EVERYTHING! NO HOLDS BARRED! Knowing that I was going to be going to J Crew sometime in January, I figured that I would return what I didn't fit, like or want. Problem is, I didn't realize that I had purchased THAT much, neither did I realize that I had to return THAT much either!
Let's take the Lea Merino Cardigan for example. I purchased 7 colors - Dark Peony, Bright Tangerine, Golden Avocado, Heather Grey, Black, Navy, and Bright Fuschia in both size S and XS. Since the XS fits best, all 7 of the Smalls are now going back. Well, now imagine those sweaters and multiply it by 10 since I bought multiples of numerous items, including tees, jackets, skirts, coats, pants, skirts, etc. I had J Crew boxes coming to my house daily!
I AM SUCH A FREAK! YES, I AM! It's one thing for me to know that I'm a freak. It's another thing for a JCA to KNOW that I'm a freak! But I guess that I'll just need to bite the bullet and do it.
So, if any of you are looking for items, sizes and colors that are no longer available online, you might want to check out the Bellevue, WA store tomorrow for I will be there to return 3 large bags full of stuff sometime in the morning.
Just in case you're wondering what I'm returning, here's a small sample:
Candy Tee, Bright Tulip, size S (kept the M)
Cashmere Bateau Sweater, Bright Palm, size S (need an XS but they're sold out)
Confetti Bateau Top, size 4 and 6 (hated both)
7 Lea Merino Cardigans, size S (keeping all 7 in the XS)
Plaza Coat in Camel, size 6 (hate the fit)
Boucle Tweed Short Scarf Coat, size 4P (keeping the 6P)
Velvet Ecole Jacket, Bright Rhubarb and Cobalt, in size P4, P6 (I really wanted to love these but they just look bad on, doesn't matter what size)
Melanie Button Cuff Cardigan, M in Fuschia and Dark Peony(I read to size up and the Medium looks too sloppy on me)
Anyway, there's lots more, but I can't remember what else I am returning since I've got them all packed up already.
On the flip side, I am hoping to buy more things at J Crew tomorrow. You'd think that I'd learn my lesson already.... but Nooooooo, there are still a couple of things that I want; The Silk Dupioni Skirt in Bright Fuschia, and Champagne, The Stadium-Cloth Lucinda Coat in Navy, the Candy Tee in Blade, and the Dream Tie-Neck Cardigan in Spearmint are just a few things that I want and will be on the hunt for.
Anyway, have an awesome Thursday everyone. I won't be home until late but I will be sure to post my findings on Friday.
