OI: Purple Ballet and Prints

Those are my first ballet flats from the Crew, I like them so much they are all worn out now 😦 But the color is so vibrant still!

Some outfit ideas below from this week, let me know which you like best! I’ll update the links to the clothing items later today.

Review: J.Crew Collection Garden Eyelet

Purchased this skirt a while back on the 40& off promo and I really like the fit and style! Review below:

Pros: great style, in the moment lace/see-through; the lining is actually red (in the picture online it looked black), can be dressed up

Cons: not much, I may have wished a little longer length but I actually like that it reaches my knees just like the model on the J.Crew website

Fit: True to size; on me, it looks just like the sample pictures

Material: 100% cotton, 100% polyester lining

Sissi’s verdict: Keeper! Do you agree? Please share!
