OOTD 10/26/2012 and a Sweater Find



  
J Crew Rosette Tee in Pink (from Spring 2009)
J Crew Eden Blazer in Iris (from Fall 2009)
American Eagle Jeggings
J Crew Factory Twisted Pearl Hammock Necklace
Michael Kors Loafers

Today's ootd is an attempt to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness, as October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I realized when trying to put together a "pink" outfit that my wardrobe is somewhat lacking in the pink department.  I'll have to see if I can fix that!  :o)

Also, I wanted to share a cute sweater that I came across last night at the Crewlet.  It's a polka dot Charley...J Crew Factory's version of the retail tippi sweater.

It is currently offered in two colorways...camel dots on black and green dots on navy.  and it's made from 36% nylon, 35% viscose, 28% merino wool and 1% alpaca...I know this will be a deal breaker for some.

It retails for $88...but if you're familiar with the factory, they have monthly promotional pricing and usually you can find a coupon for an additional discount off of the promo price.  So according to my calculations, that should put it somewhere in the $50-$60 range.

Happy Friday...I hope everyone has a blessed weekend!

  1. The polka dot charley is so cute. I have the tippi(black dots on beige) and am loving it. I'm going to check out the Crewlet now. They have a 25% promo on now I believe.
