Fun weekend & review J.Crew Collection luxury cashmere ISLE sweater

Hi all, I hope you had a great weekend and wish you a good start of the new week! We watched a hockey game Saturday night, which was our first experience. The game was so exciting and fast-paced that we forgot taking pictures at all~ My little boy and his friend enjoyed the game a lot!

Another way of wearing leather jackets (previous pairing here) in winter days is adding a fur vest on the top. Compared to the Vince fox fur vest (see here), I like pairing a leather jacket with a cropped vest better. Unless the sleeves (of the leather jacket) are super skinny– which are not the case in my closet, adding a long vest makes the entire look bulky. 

J Crew collection cashmere ISLE turtleneck 
This Fair Isle turtleneck sweater seems to be the top of JCrew collection line, $650 originally. After waiting for a whole season, the price eventually dropped. I paid $118 (SA matched the online price $279.99, plus an extra 50% off sale and 15% of university ID). The handknit construction not only gives this sweater a pronounced texture, but also decreases the level of cold weather penetration. I did not feel that cold by wearing it alone outside for ~5 minutes, 38F. It only requires hand wash. This is the last one left in my local store, so I did not get a chance to compare the fit between different sizes. The one I bought is size M, which fits me well except the sleeves (I folded them in the pictures). My guess is that it runs one size small. 

Thank you for your reading!

    The sweater has very nice pattern, and the price is unbeatable. Great buy!!Hi Yuan, I have questions about two brands that I've never tried.1. Naya shoes. Everytime I did amazon search for Chie Mihara shoes. The Naya shoes always showed up at the end of the list.Some of Naya shoes look nice and much cheaper. Do you have any suggestion about this brand?2. Tory burch shoes. One pair of TB pumps (Pacey Patent Leather Pumps) on SAKS website caught my eyes. the link is, I have no idea about this brand and this particular style. If you've happened to saw them or tried them, please give me a review.Thank you so much Amy

    Hi Amy,I don't have any experience of Naya shoes, but may share you some personal views of TB shoes (not the style you linked). I had 3 pairs of TB flats and 1 pair of booties so far, one of which satisfied me. Need to mention that the only pair I was happy with was bought 4 years ago. The rest of three all gave me a hard time. I also tried their knee-high boots and wedges in store. Personally, I feel the leather is too stiff and sole is too hard. I heard similar complains from my friends, but I also heard good words of TB shoes… You might need to try them by yourself.
