J. Crew final sale

WARNING: This blog post is totally out of season, so if you are sick of looking at summer things, please don't bother reading it. I shop out of season because I am cheap.

I love J. Crew swim suits. They just work for me. Some might say that a girl like me (aka someone who lives literally 4 miles from the beach and hasn't been out in the sand for two years) has little need for swim suits. They're probably right. Nevertheless, I've been loving the chic one piece suits on offer this year, and when I saw that this one had gone on sale ($29.99 instead of $125!) I had to snatch it up.

Antibes Calypso ring deep v suit

I admired it in the lovely summer catalog shoot on the boat deck with the awesome sunglasses. I think it's pretty timeless, so it should certainly survive next season. They were out of the green in my size, but I got the navy. I wish they showed the back online because it is oh so low and lovely. It reminds me of curvy 1940s movie stars. I think I need a giant hat. And a yacht. Someone get on that immediately.

And, since I was already shopping...
Rhumba stripe seersucker

It's ruffle-y! And seersucker! And has such bright stripes!

All told, I'm out $63 with tax and shipping included. Not bad for two suits that I've been thinking about for quite a while.

Suit shopping for the next three to four years - done. I'm serious. I am currently still living with the same two suits I had in the beginning of college (also bought on final sale at J. Crew).


  1. you are going to get me in so much trouble...I want that green one!

  2. Ooooh, I love the JCrew final sales! Thanks for reminding me. Great picks, too!

  3. Cuttee!! The ruffles are so flattering and adorable. Great choice in suits -- they are timeless, and you can't ever go wrong with more motivation to visit the beach. Now I'll have to stock up on some more myself ;)

  4. Ooh I need that bikini!

    Rachel, hope you had a wonderful time in NY!

  5. i took advantage of this big time for pre-honeymoon shopping. BUT then they are sneaky and send you all these "PRIVATE SALE" promotions to try to trick you into buying more things.
