Club Monaco and J. Crew Haul & Review

I just received both of my black friday hauls! They were shipped extremely fast. The Club Monaco order took one day to process and only one day to ship (via UPS) ! One is from the sale at Club Monaco and the other is from J. Crew’s black friday event (25% off everything and free ship over $150). I wish I could take an outfit photo outdoors…but the weather lately in Kingston has been pretty crappy. On Friday we had mild temperatures but there was heavy rain…and today is was super cold and windy! So unfortunately I had to take these photos indoors :(.

Here is the first two items (both from Club Monaco):

Hunter Tee (XS):
I really liked the design of this T-shirt…but the material was a bit strange. It’s not composed of cotton but has a knit feel since it’s made from a blend of lyocell and wool. This makes it semi see-through and very stretchy. Although it’s comfortable I don’t know how I feel about having my belly button exposed. And although the leather trims are cute they are hard to clean… I will be returning this item.
Sonia Jeans (26):
I really, really like this pair of pants and I am definitely keeping them. It is everything I want a skinny jean to be. Comfortable, slimming, and there is minimal bunching at the knee! It is a bit long though…but that is an easy fix (I’m 5′ 6 for reference). This is in a size 26 since I knew CM has non-vanity sizing and 25 would be too small around the waist area. I will compare the sizing discrepancies between CM and J. Crew later in the post…
