9.11.09: Doggies and Denim


Wearing Today: Working at home and then errands later on today.

The axcess Denim Jacket in this set is from Kohls. It is my alternative to the J.Crew Safari Denim jacket. It was only $24.99 at the time I purchased it and can be found here on the Kohls website. The jacket is well made, much cuter as well as a tad lighter IRL than on the website, and runs TTS (non J.Crew size that is)...I purchased it in size Small. I took a few pictures but cannot find the cord to my camera to upload them, unfortunately. As for wearing it today, it is only worn when indoors...still too warm to wear it outside for an extended period of time. Have a great day! :)

  2. Thanks ina! Yes, the Doggie tee does run TTS. I got the XSmall which is my *normal* size for J.Crew tees. :)

  3. LOOOOOVE it!

    I'm so psyched, because I have been on a fruitless search for this tee, FFM, and after seeing your new PV set I was inspired to try again. I got on the phone and started calling the B&M's in Atlanta that were a bit out of the way, and the second one I called said "Sure, we have about a dozen of those tees -- what SIZES did you need?" SIZES! And they're sending it to me, too. Can't wait to wear this (maybe while I'm walking my dear Eddie -- see pic at the bottom of the main page of my blog, http://jcauncmom.blogspot.com).

    Thanks so much for another great inspiration!

  4. Thank you JCAUNCMom and congratulations on getting the Doggie tee! It was actually one of THE items in the Glamour Fall Preview that I knew I had to have. It's going to be extra cute under all the cardigans and blazers this fall and winter, too. Have a great afternoon! :)

  5. I love the doggie tee, too bad it is retail only.

  6. casual-crew: What size do you need? Will one of the stores do a charge/send for you?

  7. I am Canadian so the stores will not ship to Canada, so I have to wait to see if it appears on line.

  8. The Austin, TX Barton Creek Square and Domain locations both had these dog tees within the last week if anyone looking for one wants to call them. I bought one at BCS on Tuesday and there were all sizes except for XS. I like the denim jacket...might look for that since we have a Kohls here, too! Very cute.

  9. casual-crew: I knew you were in Canada, but I didn't know the B&M's won't ship there. What size do you need? I can look for one the next time I'm in my J.Crew. :)

    Thanks txmom! The jacket is a lot cuter IRL than in this pic and very flattering, too. :)

  10. Hi ffm: My size is Large, but a Medium will do also. I usually like to size up to wear them a bit loose. Thank-you for lookng for me, I really appreciate it.

  11. Oh no problem at all casual-crew! I'm hoping to go in this weekend or at the beginning of next week, so I'll look for a Medium or Large and pick it up for you if they have one. :)

  13. denim jacket fans: saw a nice Charter Club one in Macy's today....did not buy it because I have an old Faded Glory one that fits well, but you might want to check out Macy's. It was dark denim, medium length and more trim than rustic/Western.

  14. Aren't you just itching to be able to wear jackets all day? I can't wait! Of course its still over 100 outside here :(

    We are going to Malibu tomorrow and it should be somewhat cool there (cooler at least) I'm taking my trench coat *and* a scarf :)

  18. Thank you for the information C! :)

    Stacie: Yes...I cannot WAIT until cooler weather arrives so that I can wear my jackets outdoors! I hope you're having fun in Malibu! :)

    monogramgirl: Thank you, and yes, we are still homeschooling this year. We just started up this past Tuesday.

    Have a great weekend everyone! :)

  19. Love the outfit -- I even went out and bought the jacket from Kohls! My question to you: do you wear yours as a jacket or a shirt? If as a jacket, do you leave it unbuttoned? The way it fits (form fitting) I can't see being able to wear much other than a thin tee or cami underneath. What do you suggest? :)

  20. Hi anon@ 9:23! I'm so glad to hear you like this outfit and that you were able to find the jacket at Kohls. I am personally wearing it as a jacket over my tees for this fall and winter. I tried mine on with a mid-weight turtleneck underneath and it still fits comfortably. I don't foresee being able to wear anything much thicker than that under it though. If you are looking to wear thick sweaters under it, then perhaps try going up a size to see if you gain added room for extra layering. HTH! :)
