J Crew’s sequin jacket (86743, $398). It went on sale for $279.99 and pops back on occasion. It’s also available on Net-A-Porter. It’s a Collection piece. The body is linen, which is interesting. 100% linen, 100% poly lining.
Size 4 – chest = 36.5″, waist 34.35″
Size 6 – chest = 37.5″, waist 35.25″
Size 6 – Thank you to whoever noted that this was not on final sale. It’s the only way I would’ve ordered it. Sequins? I had to see it in-person. The linen didn’t feel scratchy. The jacket feels weighty as in quality, but not heavy. Check it out on Atlantic-Pacific, on Bichonluvr’s Closet and on Head-to-Toe ‘Crew.
I’m on my way to a League of Their Own 20th Anniversary screening & celebration. Not really, but you get what I’m saying.
I’m picky about white sequins. I think maybe they pick up nearby colors and green or blue tones are cast on them. I prefer them to be as white as they can be. If they do the weird iridescent thing it just makes me think of a costume. And Vega$. Exotic countries…yeah right. Between this jacket and the zigzag sequin tee, I’d say the design team has been kicking it with P.T. Barnum. If you got & loved the jacket, don’t mind me. I think even if I was skinny, this baseball style doesn’t work for me. Clothing knows that I don’t do sports. 😉
Ram’s head necklace (99281) – A retail only necklace that went on sale for $89.99. An additional 30% off was running at the time, so it was a great deal for $60. See it on J Crew Is My Favorite Store and Shop With M. You have to be careful w/the ram jewelry. I had 2 women discuss my ram bracelet within earshot. Then they talked directly to me, complimenting the bracelet and standing just a little too close. I was sure one was going to clunk me on the head while the other swiped the bracelet and zoomed away on her walker. But I figured since we were at a post-funeral gathering they would refrain. They did. Barely.
Mint eyes. Pretty cool.
I meant to tweet the following and forgot. There are some new retail necklaces in-store. They’re long gold necklaces and each one has a single, gold pendant on it. Giraffe. Zebra. Tiger. Leopard. Rhinestone alligator, although it might pass for a salamander from far away. Two or three of them had rhinestones embedded in the animal. The others were plain gold. $40/each. If you aren’t on Twitter (like me!), I don’t blame you. You can check my Twitter feed on the upper right-hand side of the blog if you don’t want to follow via Twitter. When I see them in-store, I am tweeting J Crew items in sizes that seem to be harder to come by and other sought after pieces.
