IMG_2334

Hello, my fabulouses! Today at The Outlet Shops of Grand River in Leeds, Alabama, I attended the grand opening of the J.Crew Factory  store.  Fashionistas….I GOT SOME OF THE MOST FABULOUS PIECES EVER! With 20%, 30%, and 40% off of the factory prices, how could I pass up such amazing deals?! Exactly. I could not. I did not.

I bought twelve terrific items at the J.Crew Factory store that I will be using to create 30 different looks during the month of September. Y’all prepare yourselves for a new outfit post EVERY SINGLE DAY–It is going to be the most magnificent VIP fashion challenge EVER!  Well, at least until I come up with another one :)

Now, I just have to tell y’all what I got…I cannot contain my excitement anymore!

  1. A Tailored Boy Blazer in Vivid Jade
  2. Cobalt Stretch Vintage-Inspired Cord Matchstick Pants
  3. Light-Blue Powdered Oxford City Fit Shorts
  4. Darling Emerald and Navy Dotted Shorts
  5. Lovely Floral Pencil Skirt
  6. Super Cute French Hen Tee
  7. Blue-Toned, Plaid Button-Up
  8. Dotted Chambray Button-Up
  9. Snazzy Fall Colorblock Tee
  10. Fluorescent Pink V-Neck Tee
  11. Marvelous City Sweatshirt
  12. A FABULOUS Eyelash Scarf in the most darling hue of yellow. It is perfect, and I am quite certain that it is my fall staple piece! Rather than “the girl in the green scarf” from the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic….I am going to be “the VIP in the yellow scarf”! Kinda catchy….don’t ya’ think?

While shopping at J.Crew Factory, I had the best customer service I have had in a store chain in quite a long time. Jason (pictured) was the most fabulous employee every--and doesn't he look totally dashing! I am LOVING his patterned button up and classy bowtie!
