Must Have Cropped Denim

If you've been on the hunt for the perfect cropped denim, I think I may have found them for you!

First up, J Crew's Billie Demi-Boot Crop Jean.  I am in love with these jeans!  They are fitted through the hips and bum, with stretch, for a fabulous fit and they have a fun, ever-so-slight flare as the perfect finishing touch!  They also feature a higher rise, which surprisingly, I wasn't opposed to...all in all, a great little jean with an on-trend silhouette.

I am wearing the bergen wash, but they also come in a couple of lighter washes...the surrey and the mayfair.  They are also offered with patch pockets...the torrey wash and white, glorious white.

I found them to run tts and purchased both the bergen wash and white in my normal jean size.  They are currently 25% off (use code SHOPNOW)

Next, Old Navy's Straight Raw-Hem Crop Jean.  And once again, I say Love!  Super soft and comfy and I adore the worn hem.  I love the contrast of pairing the raw hem with a polished top and heels.

They do run large, so I would suggest sizing down.  I sized down one size, but I feel like because of my straight, no bum figure, I could have gone two sizes down.

And the best part, they are super affordable!  They retail for $34.94.

So, there you have it....mission accomplished...Found...The perfect jeans for spring and summer!

Happy Shopping!

Second Chances

Are you like me and you missed out a couple of years ago on the coveted Zara Pointed Ballerina shoes?  Well, I've finally found their identical twin...Meet Jolene!

From Topshop, the Jolene pump is nearly an exact replica...a perfectly pointed toe and all kinds of strappy goodness.  It comes in black, silver and a cute grey, reptile-esque pattern and rings up at a less expensive $80. (plus free shipping)  

As for sizing, it only comes in US half sizes.  I am typically a size 7, so I followed the sizing advice in the description and ordered the next size up...7.5US/38EU.  The fit is perfect!

Hmmm, perhaps I need the silver as well!

Review: J Crew Multicolored Tweed Dress With Fringe

The J Crew Multicolored Tweed Dress had me at Hello!

I adore the classic styling...rounded neckline, three quarter length sleeves and it's crafted in timeless tweed.

The fit is to the small size of tts...I took my normal size 6 and it is literally like someone tailor made this dress to my body. (now I know how the stars feel :))  I tried an 8 and while there was not a lot of difference, there was a tiny bit of bagging in the chest.  All of that being said, keep in mind that my shape is fairly straight and boy-like, my waist and hips are roughly the same size and I have no booty to speak of.  So if you are a bit more curvy, a size up from your norm might offer a better fit.

It's made from a lovely tweed, that when paired with it's classic details, offers instant polish.  In addition to the navy and white, this beautiful tweed is flecked with orange, blue and yellow and interwoven with a subtle silver thread...lending to even more styling variety.

And as if that wasn't enough to earn this beauty the "Perfection" title, J Crew topped it off with fringe at the hem and cuffs for some added panache and flair.

The multicolored tweed dress retails for $188, but thru 2/22/2016 use code SHOPNOW for an additional 30% off.  Looking for a solid?  This dress is also offered in navy, as well as, batik blue. (use the same promo code for an additional discount)
