My latest J Crew Bargain Box:

city fit stretch chino Claire, British Khaki and Ivory:  Great basic.  The extra couple of inches in length (compared to the Cafe capri) give you a longer leg but still show off your shoes... if I ever get out of Uggs and rain boots, that is.  Khaki: $17.49, Ivory: $10.49. 

wool jersey empire rosette tank, Black:  Love!  Gathers and roses, what's not to like.  Unfinished hem. $27.99

tie front dress, Rhubarb:  Yes.  Comfy, comfy, comfy.  Tie at the side of the empire waist; felt lovely all over. The color is similar to a darker, saturated melon. $27.99

merino Portland cardigan, Melon: Perfect layering piece.  Beautiful spring-y color.  Great deal.  $20.99

cotton Cherie cami, Key Lime:  Cut - perfection.  Color - Yowzie!!!  I love key lime pie and I was picturing something slightly softer, slightly greener.  It does look bright online though, and yes sir, it is.  Neon.  Searching for a cardi color that can go over this one so I don't look like a tennis ball. $20.99


  1. I love my claire pants! I also love my tie-front dress in blue! Great finds...

  2. Excellent bargain on chinos. The Portland cardi is a winner. Yeah...the key lime is definitely like a tennis ball. Spot on description.

  3. I have the Cheri cami in key lime too and almost returned it because I thought I couldn't handle it. But I just slapped my golden avacado potrland cardi over it, and put on my yellow perfect patent leather flats and decided that I should just go ahead and stand out. Though, I think the color of the cardi subdues the bright tennis-ball look of the Cheri.

  4. ooh - thanks for the cardigan color recommendation! I tried black & cream - both no-go for me. I was thinking navy or some sort of brown... but I have been eyeing the Michelle cardigan in golden avocado, so that's good to know!
