5.28.09 Plus My Fabulous Ebay Find That I Wore On Memorial Day

Happy Thursday Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day and are having a FABULOUS week! I am headed out early this morning to take my 3 year-old to Physical Therapy, then off to a playdate and running errands. I made a Polyvore set of what I'm wearing today...can't say enough about the Gap Curvy Cropped pants. I just absolutely love them...so comfortable and flattering. I also really like this Sunbleached Crinkle Flower tee from J.Crew...so comfy, and I love that it is Navy and Black...what a fabulous color combination...very chic! :) My bag is a similar style but is from Target, and my scarf is actually from J.Crew and has thin silver metallic stripes in it.

I also wanted to show the set of what I wore on Memorial Day. I made a trip to Walmart and then we spent the rest of the day at home. My husband finished painting our living and dining rooms (he had worked on them all weekend) and they look fantastic! Isn't it amazing how a fresh coat of paint can really revive a room? The boys and I spent some time outside in the pool relaxing, and then I fixed BBQ for dinner...it was a really nice day. :)

Now for info on the set: I had stalked this cami last year and finally found it again on Ebay for a fantastic price last week. It's called the Brushtroke Floral Babydoll Cami and it's from J.Crew Fall 2007. This pic just doesn't do it justice, but I can't find another one online anywhere. I'm going to try and snap a better pic of it myself eventually. The fabric is 100% cotton and very substantial...not sheer at all! I really wish the current J.Crew pieces were still made like this. My cami size at J.Crew this year is a 0/2...this cami from '07 is a size 4 and fits nicely, although I had to shorten the straps just a bit. My cardigan is a similar one that I picked up at Target on sale last year, and my shoes are actually from Kohl's in a similar style that I also got on sale last year.

  2. Good Morning jcma! I actually have this tee in an XS, but it is fitted. I could have worn a Small, but have found that my other embellished and graphic tees have stretched out over time and are actually too big now...that's why I've been getting XSmalls lately. I would say that it runs TTS...hope this helps! :) Have a great day!

  3. Thanks for the inspiring sets ... fabulous as usual. I agree about the paint ... we just totally transformed the mood of our living room with a few coats of dark burgundy. Have a beautiful day!

  4. HI FFM! Lovely sets and you know that I love the navy and black crinckle tee. You're right about navy and black: I own a Jcrew cardigan from two holiday seasons ago that is navy with a black ruffle along the opening and it's sooo chic.

    Would love to see the IRL pics of the second set, post soon!

  5. Thanks for the sizing info. I am so looking forward to seeing it this Sat for our little DC mini-get together. I love navy & black and have a pair of black cropped pants that I am dying to pair it with. (they are actually Gap regular pants that fit perfectly but were too short, so I stopped at the cleaners on the way home to have 2 inches taken off - now they are the perfect cropped pants.)

    Congrats on the excellent eBay find - the cami looks gorgeous in the pic, so I can only imagine how much better it is IRL.

    And I am still sitting here jealous over your fresh paint. I love freshly painted rooms.

  10. Congrats on the Cami--it's awesome!
    I don't care what anybody says about E-Bay--I've had some great finds--especially J. Crew there...and I've only been disappointed with a couple items out of the many Many I've bought through E-Bay...so "it's all good!"

  13. That's the amazing thing about eBay--you never know when a gem from a couple of years ago will turn up--sometimes even NWT! Congratulations. Also like the navy tee a lot.

  14. What a great eBay find! I wish the current tops were less sheer too.

    I love the new tee and just was looking at it in store yesterday. Great sets as usual!!

    Any update on the crazy motorcycle man? Hope things are going Ok!

  21. Thank you everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I posted a set of another Fab Ebay find that I'm wearing today...I've really had great luck there the past week or so. :)

    Stephanie, thank you for asking about the biker! I finally have an investigator from the local PD on the case, and he thinks he will have enough evidence to charge him once he can find him. I will keep you posted. :)
