OOTD 1/6/2012 - Happy Feet

One of the upsides to the winter months is being able to wear my penguin cardi.  I adore these little guys!  This cardigan is from J Crew Holiday 2006 and I was lucky enough to find it on ebay a couple of years ago. 

This cardigan was before vanity sizing, so according to current J Crew standards, it runs a bit small.  I am wearing a medium.  Occasionally, I still see these pop up on ebay, so if you run across one...I say, Go for It!

J Crew Penguin Critter Cardigan - Size M
J Crew Polka-Dot Cherie Cami - Size 6
J Crew Matchstick Jeans - Size 27
J Crew Biella Black Patent Loafers


  1. the cardigan is very cute.
    in 2006 i was very much into anthropologie,so i am not really familiar with the older pieces.

  2. I have and love this cardi too! So fun! :)

  3. The peguin cardi is so cute. Have to start looking at ebay for such great pieces.

  4. Ina...I became hardcore J Crew around 2008. I've been able to pick up several of the fantastic 2005-2007 pieces from ebay.

    M...Isn't this cardi the best?! Everybody loves the little penguins!

    Small Town Gal...there are so many great "older" pieces out there. Classic items that still work today. This little penguin cardigan is a great place to start in building your "vintage" Crew collection.

  5. This whole outfit is so cute on you! I'd love to have this sweater because my 7 year old son loves penguins (and the movie, Happy Feet!). :D

  6. Those penguins are so cute and I love that polka-dot cami on you!

  7. Kittywitty...You most definitely need this one! :o) I'll keep my eyes open for you.

    Louise...Cute little guys, aren't they?! :o) Thanks so much! I was lucky enough to pick up this polka dot cami from another JCA. I liked it so much that I tracked down the yellow version on ebay. :o)

  8. hehe loving all the J. Crew in this outfit :P such a lovely combo!


  9. Thanks Tasia! I am definitely a J Crew-a-holic! Non-recovering too! :oP
