I Slipped; I Shopped

I crumbled. I saw a blog post about shopping J Crew Factory's final sale today. I caved. I looked. I shopped. Good news is that I have a credit for a Christmas items that ended up being too small; so that helps, right?!

Don't forget, code MOREPLEASE gets you an additional 40% off final sale items (although I found this isn't true because the code worked on three of the items I ordered and they're eligible for returns!); plus 3 % back via

Besides, all of the items (besides the skirt), I will wear for both work and fun. Here's what I bought:

Factory Printed Draped Shift Dress
Price paid: $29.99 (originally: $138)
Size: I ordered a size 4 and a size 6.  This item is eligible for returns.  Since it's such a great price, I figured why risk ordering one size to possibly have it not work out and then regret not ordering the other.  Plus this put my order over $100 for free shipping :O)
Eligible for return
Factory Charley Sweater
Price paid: $11.99 (originally: $49.50)
Size: Medium (I figured this is safe if I want to layer with a blouse underneath)
Colors: Fiesta Purple and  Vibrant Coral
Eligible for return
Factory Tissue Turtleneck
Price paid: $5.99 (originally $32.50)
Size: Medium (room for shrinkage)
*Similar available for $9.99 at regular J Crew
Color: Navy (I originally thought it was black, but I could use a navy turtleneck too)
Final sale
Factory Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool
Price paid: $23.99 (originally $89.50)
Size: 4 (I already own this in the mustard/Bright Cumin; which is now sold out)
Color: Viridian Green
Final sale
For any math nerds, like myself, I paid just 23% of the original retail value of these items! Now that's a steal! 


  1. I totally just bought those two sweaters and one other one. Grand total with tax and shipping was $53. And I had made returns so technically it was free and I still have $30 left on my gift card. Thanks so much for the heads up!

    1. It's too good to pass up, isn't?! After I return the wrong-sized dress and used my credit; I'll only pay $51, which is an amazing deal for a dress, skirt, 2 sweaters and turtlneck! Glad you found something!

  2. What great deals! Worth breaking the freeze for!

  3. love the coral sweater!

  4. Seriously jealous of your purchases!!! Especially the pencil skirt. Love love LOVE!

  5. i'm obsessed with the dress! gorgeous!
