AKA Anything From J.Crew/ J.Crew Factory
J.Crew Factory is identical to their parent company J.Crew, however they have less expensive price tags, constant sales, promotions AND BONUS: if you sign up via email for their J.Crew Rewards program (which I might add is free) you get FREE SHIPPING ALWAYS. I mean talk about a win win.
I always wait until I receive one of their emails promoting a sale with extra promo codes for deeper discounts. That way I can stock up on essentials like these amaze balls shirts and my fav skinny jeans. Oh, speaking of jeans, my 5’3″ height lends itself to a shopping nightmare of sorts for jeans that fit properly. I have a booty and a short stature so as you’d imagine its annoying AF to shop. Well, J.Crew has me (and you) covered. They offer not only different leg styles like skinny, bootcut and trouser, they also offer mid-rise, high-rise (c-section mamas like me love these options to hide a pooch that just won’t quit, yah feel me?!) PLUS regular and petite sizing and different inseam options as short as 26 inches.
If you wait until you get additional promo’s or sales off already clearance priced items then well, hallelujah girl, it’s like the preppy holy grail of shopping scores. Some clothing and accessories can be literally as cheap as 6 bucks! True story I shit you not. So if you scope out the site and find some clearance must haves you’re eyeballing, add them to your cart, sign up for the rewards program, and boom; you’re on your way to a wardrobe upgrade in two shakes of a dirty martini.
Personally speaking from a style point of view, my closet is about 90% J.Crew/J.Crew Factory. Being from Boston and loving the ocean and beach, I definitely lean towards preppy, classic, New England fashion. You know what I mean, like as if I just stepped off a boat in Nantucket and I’m headed to CRU Oyster Bar for some Veuve and caviar. When in all reality I can’t afford to do either right now, but hey a girl can dream right? Anywho, my point being is that if it’s navy, has stripes, or some sort of tartan plaid and a splash of gingham, its more than likely hanging in my closet. So for me J.Crew Factory is a staple, and to have their outlet site be more accessible for my wallet, well it’s the bomb.
I love that J.Crew not only has awesome styles, whether you’re preppy like me or prefer looks that are more on trend, but the quality is amazing too. Some pieces I have collected over the years are still like new. Their coats are a particular favorite of mine and I’ve had two of them for almost 10 years now. Shoes are another awesome find on J.Crew Factory as they’re made in Italy but have a Walmart price tag (And before anyone gets butt hurt about my Walmart comparison, pump tha brakes, I shop there too, on the reg actually, groceries as well, so relax) They’re comfy, trendy, stylish and well made. Trust me you won’t be disappointed.
