Casual Paisley & J. Crew Double-Cloth Slim Trench Review

Since I just posted an in-depth review on this J. Crew Double-Cloth Trench Coat (on sale!), I tried to take some actual fit pictures of it as soon as I could! As you can see, its a pretty slim-fitting trench, true to its name. Its definitely a keeper, and can work wonders as a three season jacket.

Is anyone else a fan of J. Crew’s Liberty shirts? I really like this one, and I’m glad that it made it to a decent sale price. The only drawback about these, and all perfect shirts, is that they tend to gap in the bust (and I’m not overly busty). I’m wearing a 00, but I have to unbutton the top few buttons to prevent the gaping. I’d probably size up to a 0 next time, just for that reason.

Oh yes! And I’m so excited to share one of my recent eBay purchases with you! This adorable Mulberry Effie satchel is a wonderful addition to my tiny handbag collection. If you weren’t aware, December can be an excellent time to find some excellent deals on eBay. People are trying to sell things to make some extra cash for the holidays (like me!). Some items go for lots, while others go for practically nil. I picked up this cute bag for a little over $100.


Are you finding any good deals? Do share! Its always difficult to know when to spend and when to save. Sometimes there’s something amazing right around the corner, and sometimes I regret if I pass something up. Oh, decisions 😉
