I thought I'd pop these reviews up while J Crew's crazy summer sale continues. 75% off is pretty incredible. I was up early this morning with the baby but I still didn't bite on anything. I'm trying to get better about the whole "well it's only $10" rhetoric. At the end of the year I find I have A LOT of "it was only $10" items that I don't really like or need that much. That being said, I did fall into that trap the other day at Banana Republic when they just happened to have 2 pairs of shoes in my size that I couldn't resist for around $25 bucks a pop. One of them is these lovelies in the taupe color. They are a little crazy and a little high and I'm not sure I will keep them but I thought I should hold onto them until I decide :)
Linen Sundress in Iridescent Sequin (size 2)
this one from J Crew or this amazing one by Alice+Olivia (not that either is anywhere near within my budgetary restraints)
Pencil Skirt in Chevron Stripe (size 0)
this more colorful one by Clover Canyon. Yes, still out of my price range.
Striped Tuxedo Shift Dress (XS)
Gigi's Gone Shopping and thought she looked lovely in it. It's a nice cotton - sort of like wearing a shirtdress - and the length is good. Love the hemline.
his new striped dress from J Crew. Looks super cute and has some seaming which would probably help it lay a little better.
Joe Fresh has this cute little inexpensive option.
Lou&Grey at Loft also has a cute one. It's on sale currently for 50% off.
This one from the Loft is almost sold out but looks just right.
Of course, can never go wrong with a classic Ralph Lauren polo style stripe dress.
I'll check the sale again tomorrow, of course. Going to try to stay strong unless something really amazing comes up. How about you?
