sooooo… how was your holiday? over too quick? full of merry and bright? exhausting? yes. all of that and more, right? every year, around october, i say to myself, this year it’s going to be different… and every year (so far without fail) it’s all gone, over and packed away before i’m ready to see the end of it. but… in 357 days, we can do it all again. 😉
i found myself at alderwood yesterday. i was never a frequenter of malls until i had a toddler. now… now it’s a long, enclosed, warm place, with a pretzel at the end.
then i looked up and realized there’s a j.crew there. yikes. all that christmas money that i was going to put on iTunes and diapers… yeah. i gave it to j.crew. in exchange for some beautiful (indulgent) things! yay! that’s more fun than diapers any day. there’s an extra 40% off on top of sale items… that took away most of the guilt (almost).
i wasn’t super impressed with j.crew’s customer service via their 800#, or their website for that matter. prices weren’t consistent online with what was in store, and some items, you have to type in to find- but again, the deal was worth the hunt, and everyone i spoke with at an actual store was amazing. happy hunting! clockwise- merino scarf sweater, crane paper co. merci cards, fanned leaf necklace (also in a very pretty red), universal charger, pretty gift tags.
