J. Crew is Retail Worthy

You know what makes me happy? Finding J. Crew at the thrift. As far as name brands go, I am a fan and they are retail worthy. If I had those kind of pockets, I totally would. The quality is spectacular and it's classic and oftentimes a bit quirky. Like me!

I always buy J. Crew when I find it. The pieces are pretty timeless and they have great resale value. Not a bad way to spend $5.

As this piece is an extra small, I thought it would work for a gingham loving subscriber. (*fake sneeze* subscribe *fake cough* and I will thrift for you!) Wasn't her cup of tea so I decided to give it a try because I am a tunic stan fan. A little tight on the arms but otherwise a good fit. Even better when I leave those buttons unbuttoned. I'm sure to tire of this arrangement and donate it back but for now I'm enjoying life in J. Crew.

My trench is freshly washed and we still have more jacket weather here so more to come and it has lots of room for the full bicep. That's in addition to fitting my short arms perfectly. Yes indeed. Retail worthy.

how to wear gingham

Seeing as how this is a pretty standard stay at home mom attire, I punched it up with color -- a vibrant yellow vintage necklace and my new Steve Madden shoes via DSW! I love them. They're quite comfortable and I don't need to have my toes "done" to wear them. It happens, friends.

Pants were treated with a jeans hem by me yet I'm still wearing them folded. Am I shrinking? No, it's just this.

I agree! I rarely find J.Crew for me since I am so thick but I often find the best stuff and just give it to my sister. The other day I found this gorgeous tunic with a v-neck, size small. Tried it on anyway and it fit (i think it was supposed to be loose on the size small person.)
I am really loving those neon coral sandals. Anything that lets my feet breath and doesn't show my toes is a plus. I have monkey feet!

I live for tunics! I don't have to worry if my butt looks good in my jeans or not.

I totally agree and have thought this about J Crew pieces before! I am always smitten when I find J Crew at the thrift store, the quality is great and the clothes are somewhat classic. I found a pair of wide leg jeans and I instantly noticed the quality before I even looked at the tag to see it was J Crew. This shirt looks so comfy, love how you paired it with the colorful shoes.
