Petite Weekend Guide: 12/17/10


Sale of note:

J.Crew – 30% off sale items, and free shipping on $150+ with code MUSTHAVE. If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you know the crazy J.Crew petite buying frenzy that has ensued this week after this item review in the Alterations Needed Forum. These sweaters got marked down even more, and are now a steal at $21 each. In a perfect world, these sweaters would be a tad more fitted on me, but are adorable anyways and I’m keeping both the gold and weathered wood in size xxs. I’ll take some photos for next week, and keep an eye out for more reviews from all the other petite bloggers who also picked these up!

I also ordered this similar sweater in heather caramel, and a few of these cashmere cardigans, coming in the mail next week.

If you buy, don’t forget to use Ebates (referral link) to get cash back!

Ann Taylor – 40% off any full-priced order with code HOLIDAY, and free shipping on $150+. 50% off all cashmere scarves, hats and gloves, with code WINTER50.

Ann Taylor LOFT -40% off any full-priced order with code HOLIDAY, and free shipping on $125+. Friday only, this cable knit sweater is marked down to $25.

Banana Republic – 35% off full-priced merchandise with code BR35PRE. Free shipping of $50+.

As PetiteAsianGirl pointed out in the comments, it’s Free Shipping Friday at lots of retailers. Here is an extensive list.

    aw, thanks! I thought the sweater was super cute and I was considering getting them. I'd love to see them on you!

    And today is free shipping day! Google it for the full list of retailers (apparently many of them should have no minimum for FS today). No J.Crew though.

    I ordered two of those cardigans from J. Crew- thanks for the tip! I also found a super cute J. Crew dress that runs very small. It just came and I posted pictures today. :)

    Gaaaaaaah, J. Crew is killing my credit card! The B&M stores are having tons of sales too, esp on full-priced stuff. I went back to return the Super 120s Tulip Mini (in 00, it fit my waist perfectly — but it made my butt look like an elephant book) yesterday; and I ended up picking up oodles of Christmas presents!

    Using coupons with Ebates negates the cash back.

    @Anonymous – I've received cash back for every online purchase I've made with a coupon. Maybe it's just certain stores? Ebates also promotes store coupons in it's listings, so it doesn't make any sense that they'd negate their cash back in that case.
