On Christmas Eve we watched some videos from Michael Jackson Vision. I am so glad I got the box set. I knew it would be good entertainment. Who’s watching the kids? Michael…Michael Jackson! My nephews had heard almost all of the songs, but hadn’t seen Man in the Mirror and a couple other videos. Hey… Who’s bad? We kept saying that for the past 2 days. I didn’t remember that Scorsese directed the video for Bad and I sure didn’t see the full length version. Who’s bad!? Instead of repeating me, my younger nephew would say, you’re bad! He’s 8 and so freaking cute. Both of them are, of course. My sister will witness little girls freaking out around them in the distant future. Hopefully that stays in the future for a good while.
My mom stayed at home on the holiday because she didn’t feel well. I had my sister drop her gift off which was the buffalo check jacket. She called us, yelling with excitement about it. She tried it on last Monday and couldn’t button the 0. Our SA called 3 local stores for size 2, but they didn’t have it. I came home, put on the headset and proceeded to call a slew of stores on the West Coast. My main reason for calling West Coast was because the stores will still open. This worked out great because her coat arrived on Thursday and, of course, in time for Christmas. We also got the Dulphine bling button for her. I don’t know if she was just excited about the price or what when she tried it ($39.99 + 30% off). I wasn’t a big fan of it, but it does look nice in black.
I’m all glamour, all the time, as evidenced by my outfit. Winkety-wink. I wore the two sweaters w/jeans and then changed into the polka dot pj pants when we settled down for Despicable Me. That movie is hysterical. No jewelry for me because it didn’t mix with cooking, picking up after the nephews and playing PS3 games with them.
The SHOPNOW for 30% off + free shipping on a net subtotal of $150 or more has officially been posted to the J Crew website. It’s good thru Sunday, 1/2. Like for a week, dude. It’s very interesting to see the different promos from J Crew we’ve seen in the past 3-4 months. I don’t know if it’s interesting-good or interesting-bad. I still don’t trust them in some ways. My PS said they’re trying to get rid of merchandise. She said she hoped that the company going private will equal a return to better quality. I didn’t ask any questions to generate more info from her. The thought that came to mind is that once they get rid of this merch, we won’t see as many promos. But hey — it’s all guesswork.
Remember that items ending in .99 are final sale and usually marked w/the red lettering as you add the item to the cart. Items that end in .00 are on promo. The price may go back up so when you see them on promo, it’s a good idea to try them with an additional %. The upside is they aren’t final sale and you can return them. For example, I got the woolen twill Minnie pants for a net $66 during one of the promos. They’re currently regular price. I see a lot of remarks about waiting for prices to go down, but I find that my size/color is often gone gone. Like who know the tissue turtleneck tee is currently sold out in heather graphite, small. Guess my hand fell asleep over the mouse on this one over the past few weeks. I suppose I should NLP my thoughts to say that I always find the items I want in my size. Perhaps I would see different results. 😉
* 1035 trouser in herringbone ($98) – I wish these came in petite because the camel color is pretty.
* Cece cracked metallic ballet flats ($98)
* Super 120s Caryn dress ($128)
* Toothpick ankle jeans ($98) – I wear these all the time. I have been wishing that I got a 28 instead of 29, but I think I may just have the waist taken in. It does the gaping thing, which is easily resolved w/a belt, but it would be worth it to have them altered.
There are others, of course…
