Haul: J.Crew Factory Finds at St. Louis Premium Outlets

On Monday, I shared my excitement about the opening of the St. Louis Premium Outlets.  Today’s post, though, is all about what I purchased during my visit to the outlets.  I was provided a gift card to shop at the center.  My plan was to use the gift card to partially cover the purchase of a new Kate Spade bag or to stock up on chic basics.  I browsed several stores and decided to do most of my shopping at J.Crew Factory.

I bought the J.Crew Factory colorblock tee in retro jade, the J.Crew Factory printed pencil skirt, and the J.Crew Factory multistrand pearl necklace.  Now, get this.  After applying a few discounts (including the educator discount), my grand total was $66.86 plus tax.  Unbelievable, right?  I paid less than 40% of the $172 retail cost of these three items.  Score!

Here are my J.Crew Factory finds.  They even work well together.

Location: SLU campus at corner of Lindell and Grand Ave, St. Louis, MO
For size reference, I’m wearing the tee in an XS and the pencil skirt in a size 4*.
*Update: I think a size 2 would fit better in the skirt.  I tried the floral printed pencil skirt in a 2 and
it fit much better.

      Thanks, Michele! The skirt is a beauty. The ombre effect at the hem with the graduated dots is especially chic.
