I am constantly in search of the perfect fitted cardigan--a piece that can be elusive for petite shoppers. Often I find that sleeves are too long, that the overall length looks matronly or baby-ish, and that there's too much room along the sides, especially in the waist area. Imagine my delight when I tried on this gorgeous, bright orange sweater (Jenna's V-Neck Cardigan) from the J.Crew sale rack a few weeks ago! As I beamed at the sales associate ringing me up, he told me that this fabulous find was going to cost me a mere $18 (plus tax). Needless to say, I was thrilled.

I rushed home to see if I could scoop up a few more colors online, but I was disappointed to see they weren't marked down nearly as much on J.Crew's website. I resisted ordering any more and decided to be content with the orange one I picked up. On my next trip to the mall, I stopped into J.Crew and glanced through the sale items--lo and behold, a few more colors of Jenna's V-Neck Cardigan were on the same great markdown as the orange one had been. I grabbed one in Henna and one in Gray. Love them both, and as of this weekend, I noted that the J.Crew near me had a number of them in stock in small sizes (hint, hint!).
