I drank the Crew'lade.

After seeing the Wool Bell Skirt on several JCA's and Jen over at Jen Loves Kev, I regretted not trying it on in store. Scouring the sale section over at JCrew- tada! The wool bell skirt was on sale! In a great color, henna (remember, I need more color)! 

But...crap. It's final sale. Friends don't let friends shop final sale....

Well, I threw caution to the wind and "drank the Crew'lade" as the fabulous Gigi puts it. And for once, Final Sale didn't bite me back!*

{For some reason, Polyvore isn't cooperating. Sorry for the lack of interaction!}

Welcome to my closet pretty red skirt! The color is a deeper rust red that goes beautifully with grays, navy, brown and black. I received the Loft Cozy Cable V-neck for Christmas (thanks, Mom!) in Galaxy and paired the two right away. Next, I want to try a girly ruffled blouse (like this new one from Loft) topped with a long charcoal cardi. It's so fun integrating a new piece with my neutral basics! I think this is definitely a "working piece" for my closet.

Any other styling ideas? 

*I'm pretty sure this is a once in a JCrew lifetime thing and will never happen ever again. 


  1. i love your skirt, such a pretty color too, it'll really pop with anything!
    i'd definitely suggest the collared shirts, or a cute basic v-neck. then you can accessorize with funky long necklaces and cocktail rings!

  2. I tried it out with a white collared shirt for a New Years Day dinner- adorable! Thanks :)
