I popped in J Crew the other week to check out their additional 30% sales items and walked away with two items: I bought the toothpick ankle jeans in the purple color for $29, and a striped blazer for only $35. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of both items. I'm always like at least a year behind when it comes to jumping on trends such as the colored denim and the nautical stuff.
This striped dress also caught my eyes but for about $60, I passed.
I found this adorable dress at Anthropologie for only $29, originally priced at $158! I'm a sucker for extreme sales even though I can't see myself wearing this dress too often as it seems too dressy for casual wear, but it looks appropriate to wear in the Fall and/or in the Winter with tights and some jewelry for holiday parties/weddings, and with the price tag, I simply cannot pass up. I enjoy browsing and window shopping at Anthro because of all the unique finds but cannot see myself wearing their stuff too much; however, once in a while it's awesome to actually walk out of there not empty-handed. I apologize for the horrible photo as it does not do this dress any justice at all, the print and material looks/feels gorgeous and expensive in person.
