J. Crew 30% Off + Townhouse Trench, Vintage Tweed Jacket & Blythe ShirtdressDecember 19, 2011
J. Crew is running another storewide 30% off promotion (ends 12/19), use code SNOWMAN at checkout for 30% off your total purchase (no minimum) and free shipping on orders of $100 and more.
Here are the previously promised pictures of some of my recent J. Crew purchases. I spoke too quickly about the ease of using the Red Phone to get a price match. I ended up not getting the discount I was expecting so some of these will be going back.
Double-cloth townhouse trench - 00P - Heather Caramel
Vintage tweed jacket - 0 Regular - Blush
I am still waiting patiently for the skirt to arrive (recently received the shipping confirmation, a week ahead of schedule!). This is a keeper even though the fit is a bit boxy. The blush is no longer available online (or could just be a store exclusive) but the other colors can be had at 30% off.
I thought I got this dress for $99 but it turns out that J. Crew refused to price match store prices because petite sizes are not available online. This is a first for me. As much as I love this dress the price is just too much.
And a bonus - the green H&M dress featured in a previous OOTD. I have to say I am a little rash when it comes to things that look ok in the front. I didn't even consider how it looks from the back until I took pictures the other day. There is quite a bit of bunching and wrinkling which tells me I should've sized up to the 4. The dress is made of a light, stretchy crepe material so it doesn't feel restrictive but I don't love the view from the back. Jean from Extra Petite, who is about a size or two smaller than me, wrote a more thorough review here.
