Thank you all for such nice words about the Coccodrillo pencil skirt outfit from the party the other night. I think all of the pieces in the outfit are wonderful, and together they "sang." The tee, btw, is the boyfriend v-neck tee that HeidiG. preaches about on her blog. I agree, they are quite lovely, and as you could tell, they aren't see-through, which is a minor miracle in J. Crew-ville. I think you need to make sure that you buy the right size. Since anything overly baggy on my upper-half just takes away my waist, I will never buy into the "boyfriend" look 100%. This is why I bought an extra-small. Basically, by buying an extra-small, I bought a very nice, normal fitting tee shirt. :) My two cents.
Today I wore one current item with a lot of older pieces. See the polyvore for more info.
I was going to meet 3-Penny Princess for coffee in Old Town. She also introduced me to a great consignment store called "Mint Condition." The store seems VERY interested in the pieces I have on my for sale blog. So you all know, if things don't sell over on my blog, I will pull the pieces and try my luck at the consignment store!!! So if you are wondering what happened to a particular item, it may have taken a jaunt to Old Town... :)
So all you NOVA ladies, head on over...it has A LOT of J. Crew!!! :)
Top: Heart Frances Cami, J. Crew, Size 6, black and white (or maybe grey and white--Patina and I aren't 100% sure), Winter 2009.
Pants: Prima Stretch Pinstripe Trouser, J. Crew, Size 10, charcoal, Fall 2007.
Peep-Toes: Air Carma, Cole Haan, Size 9.5, Safari Green, ???.
For those of you on the fence about the Heart Frances Cami, get it. The material is very soft and luxurious feeling, and the print is too precious. And I feel like the cami looks better in real life than it does at jcrew.com. It also isn't super-long, so maybe some of you petite ladies can get it and not feel overwhelmed. Just a thought...
Blazer: Soiree Sateen Blazer, J. Crew, Size 6, Burnished Olive, Spring 2009. I wore his sister here. Notice that the olive blazer is a boy and the pink a girl. Hmmm...
This blazer gets wrinkly!!! But, oh, such lovely fabric and saturated colors...and the way the olive looks with the grey is awesome. :)
CW is so cute there in the background trying to read. Such a show-off!!! ;)
Have a nice night!
