I have to say that Kitty is pretty darn amazing - considering that she hates shopping but stayed right along side with me while I shopped. Needless to say, I still had to bribe her with Build-A-Bear, Lego, pretty bling from Forever 21 and of course, Ice Cream from Coldstone.
I snagged some amazing deals today, that's for sure. However, it should be noted that the sale section in both J Crew stores (U Village and Bellevue) were pretty much picked-over. There was very little in size 2, XS or S. Most items were Mediums and Larges. Very few XL.
Regardless, I still lucked out. By the way, the Retail Stores are still offering an additional 20% off Sale - thus making the purchases Final Sale. Here's what I purchased:
Floral Beach Straw Bag - I've been eyeing this bag for some time now. I'm such a sucker for anything with a flower on it and when I saw this one, I knew I had to have it. I am completely in-love with it!
I also purchased another skirt on a Charge Hold. Unfortunately I can't find a picture of it since it's a B & M item only but many of you are likely familiar with it. It's the Double Serge Bow Pencil Skirt in the Soft Pink. I LOOOOOVE the Soft Pink shade! I came soooo close to paying full price of $98 for it 3 weeks ago when I was in Seattle but changed my mind at the last minute. I'm glad I did for I was able to snag it for $49.99 less 20%.
Metallic Pleated Cotton Strati Tank. Very cute. I would never had paid full price (Reg. $110) for it but at $59.99 less 20%, it was a good buy! I got it in the Soft Seashell.
Sanur Dress - I like the concept of the dress but never thought that I could pull it off. Anyway, I tried it on for the first time today in an XS and LOVE it! It's adorable ... and it can be worn 3 ways. Long, Short and as a skirt. I like the look of it short - just as shown in the picture above. I got it in the black - good basic color - perfect for travel. It was $39.99 less 20%.
Linen Getaway Dress - for those who are not in the know, these dresses are priced at $19.99 at the Retail Store. Online is selling them for $39.50. Not only are they $19.99, the B & M are also offering an additional 20% off. They are an absolute steal at $15.99. I got one in the Papaya and another in the White. I intend on wearing these as a swimsuit cover-up.
Cafe Capris in Maize. I fell-in-love with this print the first time I laid eyes on them. But I have so many pairs of Cafe Capris that I could not justify paying full price for them. Luckily, I was able to find a pair of size 4 today. They are $88 regularly. They are on sale for $29.99 less 20%. Amazing, huh?
My final J Crew purchase today was the Tuxedo Front Cheetah Cami. Retails for $88. I got it for $29.99 less 20%. I almost didn't buy this because I could not find a size 2 anywhere - unbeknownst to me, one of the mannis had it on. They kindly brought it down for me and I was thrilled to have it.
I scored well today, don't you think?
Did you go to J Crew today? Did you capitalize on the additional 20% off? What did you buy? I'd love to hear about your purchases. I hope you will share.
