I am constantly looking for a deal. I don't think that it will ever matter how rich I get, I'll be still scouring to pay less than the asking price. Unless it's Burberry. School time came faster this year than I had hoped and our 16 year old grew even quicker. So when I received a 40% email from JCrew in my inbox, I thought to myself "Might as well!"
I do have a confession, however. When I did this haul I'd had a tough day and found myself feeling quite "good" after a few glasses of wine. While watching who even knows on television, I glanced over at my laptop sitting on the couch and encouraged myself into seeing what was out - there. I saw the email, (really 40% OFF) clicked on the link, and well... the shopping began. This kid needs clothes anyway. And oh boy am I glad I did!
Julius needed something for an upcoming wedding and had long grown out of the long sleeved shirts I'd purchased him 2 years ago. His shoes were non-existenent and frankly the only thing he had an abundance of was undergarments. Boxers out the wahzoo. The last time I checked, the school dress code strictly forbid, well... the option just wasn't in there, okay?
I got the plaid button up (here), two long sleeved shirts (here) that fit him phenomenally by the way, and a stripped tie that I already had plans for from Crew. While I was at it, I popped out of the sale section and got him 2 pairs of Addidas sneaks (here and here). Their size chart is over the top, so be prepared to break out a ruler to measure your child's foot. Like really? We know JCrew is a little uppity, but come on! Use a size chart that makes sense!
It was a mini-haul but I was satisfied. I absolutely LOVE getting something in the mail (besides bills) even if it's not for me. There's just something about opening the package....
A couple Sunday's ago and the following week, we finally mixed some of my finds into some nice match ups I think. What do you think? His suit jacket is Calvin Klein (Macys) & I got his jeans from my last haul at the Gap.
Not bad.... Not bad at all!
