MY LATEST ADDITIONS

So here is something interesting I found at my local Jcrew (Garden state plaza/Westfield Mall NJ) today. It's their newest boy shirts in the COZIEST woven flannel fabric yet!!! Seriously, after sooo many sweaters this year with acrylic and nylon and wool blends my whole body is itching just thinking about them, well this was a TREAT! It's a thicker woven blend and 100% cotton $78, feels like pjs on,and  I can live in it for the rest of the winter. It came in 2 different colors, but don't ask me about the other color because I just can't remember it, this one stood out to me right away. I think it goes perfect with jeans, minnie pants, tights and cords. In fact, one of the PS had this shirt on and paired it with a Hacking jacket in Charcoal Hearingbone over, matchstick cords rolled up and Mcalister boots. She looked very well put together and yet relaxed, in other words...very Jcrewish. I loved it. I highly recommend this shirt and it fits very TTS, no need to size up because of the thicker fabric.

 Then, there is a cashmere waffled zipper crewneck sweater. I ordered these in 3 different colors: flame, hthr acorn and heather grey. I couldn't bare looking at the other colors, they are too washed out and too "blah" looking on me completely washing me out. I sort of like this grey one maybe because it's my MOST favorite color choice in sweaters. I paired it with Minnie pants in flame color (giving these a try during holiday season).

 Next is the MOST talked about sweater this season "heart me" sweater in heather acorn/black combo. Every time I wear this sweater I get sooo many compliments and comments. The minute I step into a Jcrew store wearing this sweater the staff goes drulling over it, telling me that they are just waiting for someone to return it so they can put their hands on it. Apparently it gets sold out the minute it hits the floor. Well, all I have to say about this sweater is that it's pretty and cute, the color combo is great, goes with a lot of things but sooo itchy that I have to wear a tee underneath. Well, I paired it with another NEWEST arrival to Jcrew a plaid pencil skirt with a bow detail. It's super cute, very FALL/WINTER and pairs well with sweaters or silk tops.
 Trying out a Holiday look (sort of) with Minnie pants in flame and another VERY itchy sweater (I miss my plaid flannel shirt from the first and second pic already!!!) A super cute sweater with sequins and cute color combinations (blue/brown and pink/black, this one is natural/black) but made me so Hot (as in sweaty hot) just trying it on, so might be returning this one.

What are everyone's thoughts on these? Love/hate, tried/kept/returned any of these as well? Thanks in advance and once again I LOVE to hear what everyone thinks!

I would love that flannel shirt, I just can't do itchy clothes anymore, I've wasted too much money on things like that before and ended up never wearing them. The red Minnies are excellent!

Thanks everyone! I'm debating on those red minnies but reading your comments makes me want to keep them :))) ina the flame color is actually orangy red very nice bright but almost feels like a necessity during the holidays. HTH
