What: Everly satin pumps by J.Crew
Material: Viscose and silk outer, leather lining and man-made sole. The color is a creamy ivory white.
Quality: Excellent! The silk and viscose combination gives an edgy and shiny look to the pumps without being over the top or cheap-looking. The heels are manageable and the toe cleavage is minimal in my opinion.
Fit: True to size
Pros: The heel height, the creamy ivory color, the simple design and the sale price
Cons: Maintenance…it’s hard enough to keep white shoes clean but satin shoes seem harder to maintain when the heels are satin covered as is the case here (again personal experience).
Sissi’s verdict: Keeper on super sale. The stores were offering 75% on shoes (though I decided not to as I am after white leather versus satin).

The beauty of sample sale shopping…you purchase items you have not seen online, only to find out they are indeed online, though slightly different.
This week’s review is the Wool Pocket Skirt by J.Crew. Online, the skirt is only available in grey (excuse me, heather carbon that is). My friend, Mrs MSquared, found this skirt in my size during the sample sale in a gorgeous blue. It is close to the byzantine blue though the pictures do not really give it justice (I need a better camera). The color is vibrant and the skirt is very well made. My review below.
Pros: The A-line figure, the very sturdy wool, the hidden buttons on the front, the subtle lace opening at the front slit, the length (right below my tall knees), the gorgeous blue (I cannot speak for the grey, have not seen it in person)
Cons: The retail price, am so glad I did follow Mrs. MSquared advice on this one… thanks, darling 🙂
Fit: I would say it runs a little big but I would not recommend to size down as it would definitely be too tight for the front buttons.
Material: the exterior is 100% wool. I believe the lining is polyester. Also, the lace details must be polyester as well.
Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper!!! At the sample sale price, this was a stealer! Thanks Mrs. MSquared!

Well, over 300 new items at J.Crew and in the hunt for the look at an affordable price? Let’s browse the web:
Loving the colorblock sweaters but cannot stand J.Crew prices? Think again, I am still puzzled by DesKohan…why again is this sweater close to $500? Take a look for yourself: J.Crew colorblock versus DesKohan sweater.
Now, if you are into the sequin look and are salivating after the grey sequined collection cashmere sweater at J.Crew, you may want to look at LOFT Pearlized Gem alternate for your pocket..that is if your pocket needs the savings.
