3 Great Finds

I wanted to share a couple of recent purchases that get the Tweed and Toile stamp of approval...
1. J Crew's Natasha in Wildcat...I ordered this with one of the many holiday promos.  It was backordered but arrived today, a couple of weeks early.
J Crew Natasha in Wildcat $98
It's definitely a keeper!  Of course, I love most anything animal print.  As for sizing, I am typically a 4 or 6 in J Crew tops.  I tried both and the 4 is a perfect fit.  So, if you're in between sizes like me, go with the smaller of your two sizes.

2. Gap Striped Blazer Sweater...This little blazer sweater is so cute and will be perfect to wear into spring.  The fit is tts...I took a Small (my normal J Crew sweater size)
Gap Striped Blazer Sweater $79.95
If you go to http://www.savings.com/m-Gap-coupons.html?searchTerm=gap and sign up for the Gap Newsletter, they will email you a $15 off coupon code.  Plus you get free shipping.

3.  Land's End Canvas Poplin Shirt in Peat Dot...This little shirt is so cute and very reminiscent of the $135 Madewell Cora Dotted Shirt.  This was my first land's end canvas purchase but I bet it won't be my last!  I would say the fit is tts...I ordered a Small.  The fit is good and I even have a bit of room for layering.
  This shirt is on sale now for a mere $16.99.  Also, you can use Coupon Code: STOCKUP and PIN: 8426 for free shipping, no minimum.



  1. I love all of these items!!! Now, I'm off to check out that Gap sweater. Thanks a bunch!

  2. Oooh, that's good news! I saw mine (the Natasha) was shipped and will be here tomorrow - yes, most b/o's have been arriving early! I'm so glad! Love your other deals - great finds and prices! Happy New Year!

  3. Thank Rynetta! I've been feverishly working in polyvore creating sets with this new sweater blazer...so be on the lookout for sets to come. :o)

    Suzy..You're going to love it! I had several back orders from the plethora of holiday promos...seems all have shipped early...yay! I believe all I'm waiting on now is the red gingham shirt.

  4. Great finds, A! My wildcat top is due to arrive tomorrow! Love the striped blazer from Gap and have been considering it. Thanks for the reviews! :)

  5. I have to check out the wildcat top! I got the airy wool scarf in the same print and love it. Thanks for these reviews!

  6. KW...you should definitely try this little blazer. ATL has one too but I liked the fit of this one better. The ATL version has thinner stripes and was a bit shorter on me.

    Louise...so you know how lovely the print is. I like the fact too that I can wear it now as well as into summer. I think it will be a wardrobe workhorse.

  7. Great items! I recently got the Natasha top as well! Was shopping in the store lat week with my mom and picked it up :-) I am typically the same way with sizing on the jcrew tops, and I took a 4 in this as well. Love the stripe sweater blazer from gap! How cute!

  8. Hey Jen! Hooray for the Natasha! This print is grrreat! (Cheesy...sorry! :o)) But I do love it! I think you need to check out the sweater blazer...we all need more stripes, right?!
