Bloggy Sale & Fall Wants

I took some blog sale photos last weekend and was thinking about posting them Wednesday night (circa 9:30ish pm EST). Nothing exciting...but please stop by if you have nothing better to do : ) It will be mostly stuff that is either too small or too big for me. Purchases will be first come first serve and payment will be accepted via Paypal.

On another note, my mind is all about Fall dressing now. I can't wait to pick up new stuff in cozy knits, unique textures, and vibrant Fall colors. Some items on my watch list:
Geo Jacquard Skirt in 00p, will you run small? LOFT skirts to date have been misses for me.

Brooks Brothers, for the rich & preppy. When did you start making this size?

Inseam is 25.5" so the length should fit better than my Gap Slim Crops (24" inseam)!

Love this skirt on Callandra. I know alterations will be needed for someone my size, but what other retailer makes pencil skirts in such divine colors?

This would look nice under a jacket. But knowing BR, this will probably be roomy w/ an indecently low neckline.

Love the equestrian details. I'm getting these once they hit stores...probably in sz large.

Silence & Noise Cocoon Cardigan in XS to wear over dresses and skinny bottoms.
See it here looking cozy on MichLA

Coupons I found for U.O:

- CLASSACT gives you 10% off any order (exp 9/30/10)

  1. Ooo I like tweedy pencil skirts... wonder how the Brooks Brothers 00P fits. The BR lace top is pretty but I'm probably not even going to bother! I'm way too familiar with how ill-fitting their tanks are. Anything in your upcoming blog sale that's small enough for me? :D

  9. Well, I can pretty much see that the petite blogging scene will not rest until I've given in and bought that mustard-colored J.Crew skirt. *sigh* You win. Again.

  10. Loving the grey and black skinnies and the yellow skirt. i have never set foot on brooks brothers before....hahha i don't even know what they sell. gotta go check it out. ;)

  11. the gap kids' pants are so droolicious! they look so sharp and chic * ) i have a skirt in that shade of yellow (got it for much cheaper. then again, jcrew's prices are insanly astronomical!) and love it to bits. i find yellow to be as versatile as black, white and red. can't wait to check out your sale!

  12. Sophia - Great idea...I'll give twitter friends a one hour preview to this not so exciting sale, haha : )

    I have paypal buttons set up though so there will be no emailing...just first come first serve.

    Metta - Yellow truly is almost as versatile as black. I wore my mustard cardigan to pieces and now need more mustard in my life.

    Ping - They sell country club-esque stuff...think button downs, polos, seersucker in what I'm pretty sure are not petite friendly sizes. I can almost surely say there's not much for you there : )

    Yvette - did you buy yet? AN - Oh how I would love even a 20% off sale or something to help stomach the cost of alterations...oh J.Crew, I hate you.

  16. My thoughts have turned to fall as well. I love layering. This summer has been hot and humid so it's been all about keeping cool.

  18. Hey there. I've been lurker for the past few months and really enjoy all your blog posts. All your outfits are so cute and your tips are excellent! I'm also a petite shopper (4'11, 105lbs; athletic) and getting things to fit is sometimes difficult; so I really do appreciate all your hard work with the blog, and keeping this community informed on what works and what doesn't! :) I'll try my best to keep up and comment on your future posts!

  19. just bought stuff from UO b/c of your post.. oh man definitely failed at the no shopping til labor day thing =X

  20. Thanks for the shout-out! I wear the S&N cardi with *everything* and am so glad I bought it! Am thinking of buying another one in grey now that you posted up those coupons.

  21. Don't buy that cocoon beige cardigan.. the quality of that fabric is horrible.. it pills like crazy. I have the exact same cardigan and it was purchased from Winners in Toronto for $19.99. Seems like they just put their name on the labels when they are all from the same supplier...

  22. The JCrew double serge pencil skirts are on my wishlist too. I have heard they run small this year.

    If you have a Jcrew card, they do "free tailoring." This means shortening only at the Copley Jcrew (the tailor charges $20 for taking the sides in - so I declined; my own tailor will do it for $10). I have heard that the tailor in the Lechmere Mall Jcrew is great but haven't used him yet because he only works on Mondays.

    The Lechmere J.Crew does private shopping for groups of three and I think offer 20% if you and two friends take them up on it - makes no sense for petites though as nothing petite is offered in store!

  23. The mustard-colored skirt is gorgeous! x

  24. waigirley - oh my, such mixed feedback! MichLA loves it...but thanks for the heads up : )

    Annapurna - oh wow, you really have the dish on the local J.Crews. That really sucks that hemming is the only alteration they do...waist is the biggie! Do you mind sharing who your tailor is that does it for just $10?

  25. I think the folks at the Lechmer Jcrew are the friendliest and most helpful - they let me use an in-store only code online and get me free shipping. I like Kristin in particular - she is really helpful.

    My tailor works under the table when she probably is not supposed to - but I love her - I will PM you the info because I don't want to put it on the net and get her in trouble. Anyone who is interested in an affordable boston tailor can PM as well for the deets - but you must swear to secrecy!
