So, although my first post was about Anthropologie, I would say the majority of my clothes come from J Crew. I have found that they are a great way to still look like you have a clue fashion-wise but not be trying too hard. Especially since I am mostly home with my daughter... won't be busting out the stilettos to go playground-hopping.
Please excuse the quality of the photos. I think next time I will just bring my camera.
First up, the Cailey Cord Blazer in Cedar (size 2). The corduroy is fairly wide wale on this one which I think gives it this weird 80's/90's vibe. I am also seriously short-waisted and actually don't love the slightly longer silhouette. Fit is TTS.
Next is Origami Mini which I am in love with (Size 4) although after seeing the photos I don't know if it is super flattering. If you are standing still the front pleats lay flat but as soon as you move (as seen in the photo) they can create a little pouf. I usually size up to a 4 in fuller skirts at J Crew (i.e. not pencil skirts) but I think I would prefer 2 sizes up for this one. The colors and pattern are really lovely.
Blythe Shirtdress (size 2). LOVE. So flattering and TTS. Now, the idea of wearing a silk dress for my lifestyle is insane - it would inevitably have some greasy hand print or fruit roll stuck to it within about 30 minutes of putting it on. Gorgeous but not prudent.
The Lace Blouson dress (size 2) is not so new but I thought I'd review it anyway. I adore lace and I also adore a really easy throw-on dress like this. I would probably prefer it with a belt. I can't imagine how someone with a long torso would wear this dress as my torso is short and I still felt like the waist was quite high.
Boy Shirt in Quincy Tartan (size 2). Lovely colors, fit is TTS. I just have too many plaid shirts. Way too many.
Last but not least, the silk Lucinda Blouse (size 0). I think this must be an in-store only navy color. You can definitely size down on this one. I found the same to be true with the newer version of the Blythe Blouse. It's a lovely blouse but I'm looking for something more casual.
Will post more Anthro reviews tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
