J Crew Red Card Buys

Well, the card isn't actually red... was it last year? Maybe that's why I keep thinking of it that way... At any rate, I was lucky enough to receive this limited time 25% off in-store card again this year, so I had to take advantage of it. These three pieces are from the sale section. (I am thinking of a possible second J Crew visit before it expires on the 11th if I can fit it in.)

The ruffles go all the way the color...very easy dressing.

I wore it over a heather gray Old Navy tank, with jeans and black Revas.

Cascading Always Cardigan (don't see the color online, but it is an olive green), and Tissue Ruffle-Rows Shell (I think this is the Vintage Wisteria color... and I found it to run big: this is an XS, the popover and cardi are size S.)
This cardigan was one of my new arrival picks when it first came out so I was happy to get it at such a great price. It has a really easy, comfy feel to it. I had not thought of wearing these two pieces together when I purchased, but thought the two colors might work when I looked at them next to each other at home. I like the combo.

I wore with jeans and nude flats. I'd love some gold jewelry with this but I didn't have time to think about jewelry this morning so stuck with my silver Tiffany necklace, silver Target earrings, and DY bracelet that I've been wearing almost daily lately.

The ruched rows are on the front only.

Hope everyone's having a great week ~



  1. Hey lady!! Okay, so you ROCK!!! Everyday i was checking your blog to see your jcrew picks! Love the ruffle/always cardigan, in that green/olive color, with the purple tank/shell. I actually got that same ruffle tank/shell in the pinkish color!! I am going this week to see if they have that always cardigan and i also like the ruffle sweater you chose, i must see if they have that, too. I also got the dream draped sweater in the cobblestone color, looks really pretty with a purple tissue long sleeve tee under it:)

  2. mrs.a - Haha! I knew I had to get this post up for you soon b/c you wanted to get back b/4 the card expired :) I did not even think about trying on that dream draped sweater but since you picked it out I will definitely give it a try if I get back in before the promo ends. The always cardi is great... this is one I could get in multiple colors and just wear over everything for Fall - and Spring too.

  3. I bought the popover, too, in that color! What a steal, right! I know I'll be making one more trip to the store before the card expires! You never know what might show up!

  4. I love the green ruffle top! I think it would be so cute with some gray cords and leather riding boots. You got scored some true goodies!!

  5. I love those ruffly tops and with the skinny jeans...they "suit you to a T"
    unfortunately for me thay emphasize my ample mid-section...!

  6. Love the sweaters! The ruffle one is especially adorable :)

  7. Pamela - I know... I'm feeling the need to check back too...
    Tess - I love that idea. I have some gray cords from 2-3 years ago and that is exactly how I'm going to wear it next time. Thanks!!
    hostess - thank you :)
    C - thanks!

  8. There are some really nice purples at J. Crew- I love the ruffled tank top. Now I've got it in my head that I need to go to J. Crew :)

  9. love the olive + wisteria! the sweater + 25% promo is sooo fab!
