sale perusing

I have a love for all things J.Crew, but for some reason can never seem to find great steals in their sale section (save a very few rare exceptions)... 
I was even reluctant to open the email that appeared in my inbox announcing "new items added to final sale"... but woah, point J.Crew... you surprised me!

These new items are a far cry from the usual clothing outcasts that populate the J.Crew final sale section... 
I have round up some of my favorite current, lust worthy, great priced items that I found today when pursuing all 60+ pages (hope my boss isn't reading this!)

I am hoping to incorporate more color into my wardrobe, and I find the most versatile way to do this is by purchasing colorful items in classic cuts: striped nautical shirts, chic trousers, and bookish blazers

// Skirt ($189 is out of my price range, but I'm still dreaming about it)// Purse (under $100!) //
// Pants (under $50)//
// Shirt (less than $25) //
// Blazer // Shorts // Sweater ($19!) // Knit Top //
// Skirt (under $40) // Pants // Shirt (too good to be less than $10)// Jacket (MY tweed jacket is on sale… might have to pull the trigger!)// 

I am also amazed at this fully sequined tank for under $20, and this notebook perfection that rings in under $5! How great is this leopard sweater with the electric blue jeans?! killing me!
Of course there are still the clothing rejects: this sweater takes me back to middle school… in a bad way, why do these exist?

What do you think?
Find any winners? Any losers?
I think I am going to hold out until I get the email saying "additional 20% off", such a cheap-o!
Have a great weekend
