Are you as overwhelmed with Cyber Monday promos as I am? Retailers were probably patting themselves on the back w/the new idea to start Black Friday sales on Tuesday and Wednesday, instead of Friday. I did like the idea of starting the Cyber Monday sales on Sunday. I wonder what they’ll come up with next year.
CYBERMONDAY gets 30% off. This is the best promo I’ve seen yet from Asos. The giraffe sweatshirt is the worst I’ve ever seen from Asos! I thought you might get a laugh out of that like I did. Whoooboy, who thunk that up? That poor model. The houndstooth sweatshirt is awesomely longer than J Crew’s cropped version.
CYBER gets 30% off. I have the flannel lounge pants in dot & have worn them quite a bit. They seem to be the same quality as years past. The good ones. Some were hit or miss. The raglan usually makes my shoulders look bigger, but the contrast w/sequins create contrast I guess. M fit like a tunic. S would be the better size. I liked the black. When to wear sequins? You decide. I would wear this sitting in front of the TV watching Mystery Diner, to the mailbox, to the mall. I don’t care. Sometimes I really need the sparkle. I would not wear the flannel pants out because I just don’t do things like that in case you were wondering. The wool-blend coat is holding up well for me. Pick a bright color, put a pretty pin on it. It works, especially if you like to collect coats.
CYBER gets 30% off. I tried the gloves on in-store and they looked like workman’s gloves on my hands. I’ll be returning mine when I receive them. They were ok as far as the leather and there’s more luxurious calf hair to be found, but on sale…if the fit is there… I saw one of the caged bangles in a solid color, so I think the calf hair one should be pretty ok. You can get the J Crew wild side bracelet ($68) on sale right now for 25% off with MONDAY or 30% off with CARDSTYLE if you’re a J Crew cardholder. I’ve seen that one and it’s nice. I would take either one. The lace front cardi has one negative review and one positive, canceling each other out. lol I saw it in-person and picked it up. It was interesting. not for me, but I can see it being pretty on someone.
CYBER gets 30% off. I bought the clutch w/my sister in mind, but purse goods are getting redundant in my gift giving. I think I’ve given her a purse or cosmetic bag for the last 5-6 gifts. No joke. I like the purple tones and it’s my favorite of the bunch. The there’s a neon yellow/grey one and the yellow has a green cast. I liked the combo, though. The Pure turtleneck sweater was a fail. Too bad because I loved the color. My stomach doesn’t need a hug right now, so returned. And the turtleneck. I know, it looks like a sad sack on the model and I thought maybe she was just too thin for it rofl. The neck was very tight to get over my head and it was just a mess all the way down. However, I’m still a fan of the Pure label and fabrics from Gap and will keep trying them.
I wish I had 7 pairs of Loft jeans. One of each day of the week. I really, really love them. Once you find jeans you like definitely buy more than one pair. These are the ones that are perfect for me right now. Bow tee, I it’s like my body is going to contort itself into one as much as I talk about them right now. There’s probably some symbolism in there or something important. The tee is cute for bumping up at home wear. I’ve been seen in polka dots & stripes at the same time in non-complementary colors. Trying to change that. Sequin detail tee reviewed in this post. Thumbs up.
Ok, so like Shop With M, I am into the Eat Cake tote. Love the stripe wallet and that chiclet necklace would go with every Tippi I own. Ooh, it would also look super good with the Lucille dress in festival green. I’m trying to ignore all of these things.
I’m curious to see what cuts will happen in Dec. Apparently merchandise is not moving as expected, so we may see more promos as we head toward the rest of this year’s holidays. In the meantime, their holiday promo — which they never specifically name as Cyber anything — is pretty decent because it’s sitewide & free shipping, no minimum. 25% off with MONDAY or 30% off with CARDSTYLE if you’re a J Crew cardholder. The new checkout is a pita and I hope it gets fixed per our comments on The Mothership. Ebates is 6%, so prevail if your total is worth it. Otherwise, call in your order with a cs rep. I’m loving my bracelet. So glad I got it. Review of the thermal henley Lucille dress in festival green. And the bow coat is on promo for $292. The codes apply and it’s great that it’s not final sale. I’m so curious to see if this will go lower & if so, what sizes/colors will remain. It would’ve been nice to see this in petite, but it looks like there are no embellishments at the sleeve. Alterations would be easy, relatively speaking. Won’t be happening on my Brother machine that I’ve literally pulled out once. One day…(hearty laugh)
