brand news . . . uniqlo + j

i have been a fan of uniqlo for years now.  they are my “go-to” for bargain deals on puffer jackets for my kids and cashmere for myself. uniqlo’s long underwear, heattech, is a staple in my house for my children and myself when the temperatures dip into the 30s.

i first became familiar with uniqlo back in 2009 when they launched the curated collection, uniqlo + j.  one word:  sublime.  i drooled over the collection almost daily but never purchased — i was in the last trimester of pregnancy and did not want to insult my already fragile ego with a killer jacket that was sure to be too small in my regular size.

and then it vanished into thin air.  poof.  gone.  so, i thought i totally missed it.  no second chance.  and i was really sad.

then, when i least expected it – one of those facebook advertisement’s came through my feed.  there she was, the coat i had drooled over with the tag: “best of uniqlo + j – back by popular demand.”  yay! yay! yay!  this is our lucky day!!

who knows when it will ever be back?  this time, i am not waiting around!!  get ’em while they are hot!




uniqlo (+j) down shaped line puffer, $169. this, to me, is perfection. i am so crazy about the lines of this jacket! L.O.V.E!


uniqlo (+j) premium down light jacket, $149.90. this baby is a rockstar. it is shorter and more tailored than other puffer jackets. i can’t imagine anything cooler with jeans on the soccer field or at the high school football games on weekends.



uniqlo (+j) down short parka, $169.90. for when it gets super cold and you need to look super chic. the three-quarter length sleeve would look rockin’ with some longer leather gloves, a pencil skirt, opaque tights and some booties. practical + stylish in one gorgeous coat.


uniqlo (+J) slim wool dress, $89.90. this dress may not look like much, but don’t be fooled. the description reads “painstakingly cut to accentuate and flatter curves.” sold! i can’t wait to wear this with my cropped pants and jeans, not to mention my pleated midi-skirts. a real closet workhorse.

      Hey Paige!! Looks like Olive is the only color still available on line. The (+ j) collection is available in the New York and several other stores. The inventory at the 5th Avenue store is enormous. My suggestion would be to call the main line (1-877-4UNIQLO) and see if they can locate one for you in navy. Good luck!! Fingers crossed! And, hurry!! All colors were available on Sunday! They must be selling like hotcakes!!

tell us what you think!!!
