On a side note, if you are thinking of purchasing the J.Crew sweater jacket, I’d highly recommend.  It is very warm and the shape is similar to a leather jacket but made of wool 😉  Love the zippers and buttons!! Would have gone with pink (more stylish in my opinion) but the navy is more practical so navy I purchased.  And pulled everything together with the stripe schoolboy blazer and a scarf 🙂

Review: J.Crew Collection Pencil Skirt with Leather

My last purchase with the extra 40% off was the Collection No.2 Pencil Skirt in leather-tipped double serge wool.  Undecided if I should keep this, I think I should go with one size down…but I may lose the length. Let me know what you think.


Outfit details: top and skirt

Pros: True to size, knee-length (am 6 feet), great quality on wool and leather, comfortable, tucked-in style most likely to showcase the leather panel at the waist

Cons: none really, the skirt matched my expectations

Sissi’s verdict: great skirt, a potential keeper
