Infatuated with J Crew Spring 2009

I am so in love with J Crew's spring collection. I want one of everything, but since I'm not independently wealthy, I'll have to settle for none or maybe 1 or 2 things (since I know I've already purchased some other things that were such good deals, I couldn't pass them up).

Statement Necklace

Sunray necklace - $150
Would it be wrong to spend the majority of my shopping budget on this gorgeous statement piece? I'm thinking it could be a good investment if I can use it to dress up a lot of my spring '09 outfits. With this baby, you can make a T-shirt look fab!

Girly Top

Viscose ruffle-sleeve tank - ON SALE - $29 (from $42)
Besides cardigans, my other clothing staples are tank tops. I don't like sleeves, so cute tank tops are a must for me! This one, with the adorable ruffles, is a winner and the price doesn't hurt. Hmm...Maybe I should hit up the mall today before this baby gets snatched up?

Bright Bottom

Metallic-silk mini - ON SALE - $58 (from $78)
I feel like I'm finally getting my staple bottoms down, so now it's time to play. I normally don't do orange in my wardrobe (I have nothing against it, it's just not the first color I'm drawn to) but there's something about this skirt that I simply love!

Cutesy Cardigan

Cotton-cashmere ruffle cardigan - $68
Ahh...cardigan...my love. I don't have any...wait...I only have 1 short-sleeved cardigan and this cutesy, ruffly one would make a great addition to my current cardigan collection. I also this this cardigan would look awesome with that sunray necklace I'm currently craving.

Perfectly Pastel Pumps


Joley patent-leather peep toes - $198
I think I've mentioned before, but J Crew is one of my fave brands for shoes - they are so comfortable. I have learned the hard way that only their round-toe or peep-toe shoes are comfortable for me, personally, because I have wider feet. How gorge are these baby-pink pumps!? Love them...want them...

I love that necklace. It's stunning IRL. I purchased the bubble necklace, pearl bracelets and neclace and don't regret it one bit. I couldn't wait for them to go on sale. My outfits were screaming for those pieces.

I agree!!! I absolutely love this line. But unfortunately I can only afford to shop at the J.Crew outlet or clearance!!! :) But I love J.Crew. I purchased my first cardigan from them this summer and lost it in my closet somewhere! :(

I love, love, love this blog and have been reading it for years. (I'm the one who emailed you house training tips when you got Bailey!) I am in desperate need of some fashion help. I want to buy some new shoes for this spring and summer but I'm not sure what to wear with them. Can I email you a picture of the shoes and get your thoughts?

You sound like my kind of shopper!

Thanks Cari!

Thanks Lys - they are gorge, no?!

SC - me too! I haven't bought anything full price at JCrew in awhile! Some things are relatively affordable, but usually I try to hit the sale racks if I can.

I just found your blog, very cute! I blogged about that J.Crew ruffle cardigan too! I just ordered it but haven't received it yet. I'll let you know if it's worth it (I'm sure it is)
