For most of the continental U.S., any shopping you do this weekend will likely happen at your computer.
And on a weekend in which snow keeps you indoors indefinitely, it's easy to keep shopping -- and shopping -- and shopping. A hundred bucks can be gone faster than you can say "cabin fever" (or "no, seriously, you need to go to another room because we've been in here way too long together").
But J.Crew's final sale will leave you so satisfied for $100, you won't be tempted to click your way to a credit card pileup elsewhere. Below, three ideas. Don't forget to enter EXTRA30 at checkout for the discount.
SCENARIO #1: Think summer, and come in under
Is it crazy to buy a swimsuit when there's two feet of snow outside? Not when J.Crew has marked down the most flattering swimsuit in its repertoire by $25. The Jersey Lomellina retro bandeau tank ($89.99) is flattering on every single silhouette and every single shape. Get it in your cart now -- and you can still afford an adorable passport cover ($8.99) for when you whisk this swimsuit off to an island. Total for both: $81.27 after discount.
SCENARIO #2: Go from work to happy hour for a steal
A J. Crew cardigan is one of those pieces that you end up wearing even more than you guessed you would. This one has pretty crystal buttons and a great price cut -- it's currently $39.99 and comes in four colors. You can wear it over everything, including this adorable tiered tulle tee ($59.99). Top it all off with this jeweled ribbon headband ($14.99). Total for the trio: $95.01.
SCENARIO #3: Get a jump on wedding season
If you wait until save-the-date season, you'll have to pay full price. So consider investing in a J. Crew frock now. I can personally vouch for this silk chiffon style -- it's ultra-flattering and incredibly comfortable. Right now, most colors and sizes are $69.99, a few $49.99. No matter which hue you choose, it'll go beautifully with this wedding-perfect pearl bracelet ($44.99). Total for both: ($92.53).
