J.Crew, I Love You

My addiction to J.Crew is satisfied by two sources: consignment shops and eBay. Sarah from Simply Sarah was the one who turned me on to this J.Crew necklace on eBay for $15 plus free shipping. It turned out to be a great buy, and I love how it turns this typical work look into something with a little more panache.

The pencil skirt is from Avalon Exchange. I've only owned a couple of very nice pencil skirts, and I have to say this one by far has had the best fit. It hugs in the right places, but still looks work appropriate. It's the perfect example of why a pencil skirt is such a wardrobe staple. I also love the navy blue and pin stripe for summer.

This is also the debut of these tan sandals, which were bought at Avalon for $10. I knew I wanted to add a vintage sandal to my repertoire this summer, and these are in great condition. Don't you just love the straps?
