Warmspun Herribone Jewel-Collar Sweater, XS (here)
I actually DIY'ed the retail version here earlier this year, but was still excited to try the Factory version. The XS seems a little larger than typical J. Crew sweaters in XS (reference the XS sweaters below) so depending on your tastes, you may want to size down. The sweater composition is a little on the scratchy side.
Verdict: It's a lovely sweater, but even at 40%, it was more than I wanted to pay. Will wait for further sale.
Jeweled Necklace Top, XXS, (here)
Bring on the jewels! XXS fit well - not too tight, not boxy, didn't billow in weird areas to make one appear pregnant.
Verdict: Still feeling cheap, will wait for further sale
Factory Beaded Sweatshirt, XS (here)
I was delighted to see a factory version of this sweatshirt! It fit well throughout, but something about it - maybe the shorter length - seemed to make me look wide in the torso. I prefer the retail version here.

Verdict: No, not flattering on my body type
V-Neck Sweater in Colorblock Stripe, XS (here)
I rather liked the pops of green on this sweater and it fit pretty well. Ultimately, I have so many stripes in my closet that the colorblocking wasn't enough to warrant the purchase. BUT it is a very cute sweater and it was in the clearance section (sale + additional 40% off) so this may be a good option for others.
Verdict: No, I have similar items already
Silk 2-Pocket Blouse, XXS (here)
It's strange that the online version shows color-matched buttons while all the store versions had white ones. I'm actually not a fan of white buttons on colored shirts, I find the contrast to be a bit jarring. I did really like the fit of this shirt. It had a nice drape and fit slimly without being tight.
Verdict: Liked the fit, but ultimately would prefer a more emerald green
I didn't wind up buying anything in store, but did wind up ordering this Charley Anchor Sweater online. Hope it fits well since it's final sale!
