We've gone through the entirety of the Fancy Nancy tome, most of Corduroy, Pinkilicious, Mr. Putter and Tabby and Madeline. It's been fun to rediscover some old classics and get acquainted with some new ones...
But I digress... on to J Crew Purple Reviews!
Blythe Blouse (size 2) in fiesta purple, Cafe Trouser (size 0) in desert on sale for $29.99 in store
I tried on the trousers before in a size 2 and they were a bit generous (especially give how JC stuff stretches out) but the 0's were definitely snug. Such a good sale price but I couldn't bite. In general I am feeling in between sizes in JC bottoms. I have also tried on the Blythe Blouse before. I don't love it in this color - I LOVE purple but this shade made me look kind of odd. Maybe if my hair was more a true blonde shade? Definitely prefer the extravagant green shade. Still great blouse - could do a size 0 or 2.
Vintage Thermal Henley in stripe (XS) in-store only color and No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Metallic Boucle (size 2) on sale
There has been a LOT of talk about the henley. It is super soft and cozy but I knew it would not work for me. The size XS would have been fine if I was not super busty. If I sized up, I knew I wouldn't like the shape as much. The skirt is lovely
and I should know what it's called but I can't figure it out. Thanks to Great - it is the No.2 Pencil Skirt in Metallic Boucle - seemingly sold out online. It's a wool boucle with some metallic thread running through it. Gorgeous, but the thickness of the fabric added a little thickness to my frame which I did not like.
Patsy Dress (size 2) on sale
Boardwalk-stripe Zipper Tee (size XXS and XS) respectively, in navy, on sale for $34.99
I'm not really sure why I keep on getting so excited about t-shirts with zippers, but I do. I had always noticed this in store but never striped it on. LOVE IT. The little zipper on the sleeves are so cute and it is comfy and a lovely new take on stripes. I did not buy it, but am keeping it mind for the next 30% off promo which is surely around the corner.
I'm purpled out... will be back with a few more reviews tomorrow!
