OOTD Apr 12/12

Can't believe J. Crew is doing another promo this week. 30% off all sale and factory items use code: SHOPNOW (good till Apr 13, Fri). So hard not to buy anything. A lot of items have really gone on sale. I mean in the sweater section. Not hard to find a lot of items is now $20 or under with original priced at $130 and up.

One of the sweaters I got from last week's promo is this Cotton Ripplestitch Cardigan in shallow sea (sim here)


I'm in love with the minty color this spring. I got this in size s which is perfect as I always layer it with a button-down shirt.


I got the cardigan for $22. Not a bad deal at all. The material is kind of stretchy so lots of room to give. But I wouldn't pay full price of $130 for that.

  3. Can't resist a sale, hehe :) Such a pretty colour, I adore cardigans because they're just so versatile, easy to just throw on and comfy. Great price too, considering the discount from the original.

    1. yes, I have no self-control when it's a good sale. All my rules go out the window when a sale is on. I love cardigans too. It's not quite summer weather here yet. Great to throw a cardigan on in the morning and have a shirt/short-sleeved top underneath.

  5. haha I know what you mean - it actually makes me wonder a lot how much they are actually worth if they can discount them so much. I only picked up one sweater in the 30% off mayhem, but splurged on some things I've been eyeing for a while: heart throb jardin skirt, polka dot chambray shorts, and scalloped blouse ooooo can't wait to get them all this week!

    1. I wonder about the same thing too. If this cardigan was priced at $120 and now $20 and I'm sure they are still making money off. How much retailers really mark up??!!

      Can't wait to see how you will style your new pieces!! :)
