J.Crew Addiction Chronicles: Spring Sale

It should be no secret that I am utterly addicted to 95% of what J.Crew produces. So it should be no surprise that when this little ditty popped up in my inbox today, I immediately gasped and started frantically scrolling through the pages and pages of sale items (sidenote: can they REALLY not do something about that interface? It's horrid).

After about five minutes, I had 15 items in my cart - and I knew I had to hit the store so I could get my hands on the goodies even faster. Screw waiting for shipping (literally the hardest thing in the world for me to do).

I mean - just look at this!

I can't even.

So yes, immediately after work I sped over to my nearest J.Crew...

And when I got into the dressing room, I realized I was already in head-to-toe J.Crew...

(Minnie in Vibrant Flame and Gingham Perfect Shirt in Byzantine Blue)

And some arm swag (beaded bangles are J.Crew too...seriously borderline embarrassing).

But once I got over my slight embarrassment, I also realized that the additional 30% off wasn't being promoted in the store, and I had a minor panic attack (seriously, I know I'm ridiculous). I asked one of the associates, who all but shushed me and whispered "Yes, you can still get it, but let me check with the girl at the register." Okay, secret sale? Fine, as long as I get my deal!

After getting a hushed confirmation, and trying on about 50 items (some of which I knew were on sale online were not marked down in the store), I made my decisions and was literally escorted to the register for more whispering, as if everyone in the store was going to rush the registers if they heard what we were talking about.

Not only did they give me the extra 30% off, the adjusted the price on the items that had not been marked down in the store but were on sale online - ANDDDDD I got my additional 15% off student discount on top of it all. AMAZE. Can you tell I'm beyond jazzed?

So - what did I walk away with?

This took a LOT of self restraint - but this all came in at an unbelievable $111. Unreal. I would deem today a complete success.

What do you have your eye on form the spring sale?
