bye bye west coast!

sorry, i've been soooo MIA from blogging. looks like it will be a while before i start fashion blogging again. i got my STEP 1 board scores (i passed!) and now i've relocated to the jersey area for clerkship. i'll be here for 3 months. then, back to cali. then, again to the east to ny downtown. all in all, it'll be a lot of flying! :)

since moving here, i have not had the chance to get my crewlade fix! i'm itchy all over!

will likely start again soon...i'm hoping to post my latest jc finds soon!

hope all is doing well this fall season and ready for the long-awaited winter holidays! :D

sugar and cream dress, lady's choice cardigan, lost time skirt, and others

lady's choice cardigan, neutral motif, xs

dress: distant chirping chemise, xs
cardigan: rimini cardigan, cobblestone, xs
shoes: BC footwear gingersnap, similar here

anthropologie had some markdowns last night and sent me to the downtown store; got many more items but too many to post. still debating which to keep or let go. any ideas?

distant chirping chemise--a very short spring dress. how about tucking a slip that's slightly longer underneath? fits perfectly in all places. not too sheer to wear outside the bedroom.
cloud fish skirt-- very feminine in all its details. because of it's neutral color it may easily go undetected. beautiful item!
lady's choice cardigan-- runs a little large. hits low low hip. looks extremely professional with slacks and heels.
time lost skirt---beware, might take you back into wonderland! very pretty! structured lace material under for the nice poof.
cordial embrace dress-- a nice thick wool fabric that will certainly keep you warm through fall and even into winter! a versatile piece with a kick of detail.
sugar & cream dress-- shall it be paired best to a tea party? adore the pattern and fabric (silk). lovely made. chest area is a bit large. smaller-chested ladies may need to size down.

Dot chiffon Betsy wrap cami

Dot chiffon Betsy wrap cami, champagne, sz 0

tried this item in store about a month ago and adored the fabric and pattern but price was listed too high for me at $69.50. when i saw the price dropped to 39.99 in stores last week, ordered my size thru red phone with complimentary shipping. it runs a bit bigger. consider sizing down. wish i ordered the 00 for a more fitted fit, but i think this piece will work well for those who like a slouchier casual look.

do you own this piece? i'd love to hear how you wear 'em! :)

Rimini Cardigan, cobblestone, xs

Rimini Cardigan, in-store only color?, xs, $54.99

Just got back from vegas/LA trip. while in LA, dropped by the century city madewell. snagged a pair of Bensimon Elastique in golden loom for 19.99. IRL pics to come!

We of course dropped by the neighboring jc store, too! what a find! For 54.99 i had to snatch the rimini in-store only color. and, i adored the cobblestone too much to let it go, esp at 20 promo. i paired the cobblestone color with Anthropologie's Distant Chirping Chemise. More pics soon.

perfect-fit mixed-tape cardigan, rosewood, xs

i've just written the first of board exams last week so here i am with tons of free time! what to do? shop, what else? :) i practically raided one of my local store and tried on some items (should they go on deeper cuts). i walked home with the merino shirred cardigan in vintage wisteria (that color really is so lovely) for 34.99, Dot chiffon Betsy wrap cami in champagne for 39.99, and the textured jersey tee because of the adorable yellow-orange color. Beware of the confetti ruffle cami, it runs a little big, consider sizing down. note: the Dot chiffon Betsy wrap cami is not pictured because store didn't have my size. ordered through red phone and got price matched (online now shows 39.99, too) and waived shipping. yay! :D

also, if anyone can help me ID the unIDed item, thank you! :)

alert: Ikat dot blazer price drop, now 59.99.

hope this helps someone! please, enjoy!
