JCrew, I hate you. You and your stupid 30% off sales. Why you gotta go and make me drop $200 on clothes? Once I'm at $100 I can't just stop there because your stupid free shipping limit is insane.
I got a lot of stuff, but I guess I shouldn't feel bad for buying stuff I know I will wear and that I know will fit. I'm slowly doing a closet purge so new stuff helps me ID old stuff for recycling.
This is my first belting experience. The belt was about $10 at JCrew, which is cheaper than I can buy a belt at my local secondhand store. I wear a lot of blue and a lot of purple-ish colors, so I got one in each of those colors. [This belt is blue, in case the picture isn't clear.] I'm not sure how to belt a cardigan without it getting a little bunched up, or having a fabric muffin top. More experimentation necessary, I guess. This look is good though. Yay experimenting!
As a side note, I find JCrew sweaters to run really large. I struck out initially with the Tippi sweater in medium but finally tried again with a small. The one in the picture is a size small.
