J. Crew Review - Pleated Jardin Skirt in Heart Throb

Everyone seems to be jumping on the boat with the new heart print from J Crew. I am not so drawn to it but thought I would take a peek at the skirt version.

Pleated Jardin Skirt in Heart Throb (Petite 6)

First off, the P6 was too big in the waist so I would definitely want a P4. I do like the length of the Petite.  The skirt is a lovely fabric and drapers fairly well but I don't exactly feel like it does wonders for my body. My waist has thickened a bit since baby and these kinds of skirts don't do it any favors. However, if this kind of skirt is your thing - it's a lovely! Very unique. Just can't do the heart thing. 

However I'm still obsessing over this:

Especially after reading A Bigger Closet's Review HERE
Didn't love this print in the Jules Dress because the fabric didn't drape well. The skirt is a slightly thicker fabric I believe so.... just waiting for a price drop and percent off. Wish it was offered in petites. My husband will hate it but I can't help myself :)


  1. I agree with you on that skirt. I am not a fan of the Ashbury skirt either. Thanks for the review!

  2. I know, Rose - the ashbury is A LOT to take in visually. I'm more attracted to it than the heart print and I have a feeling the material would drape better. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I actually like the print of this skirt, but not the cut so much and not the material. I picked it up in a petite and there's something about the shorter length and full skirt that is visually off, at least on me. I looks square and hippy. Perhaps the waist needs to cut overall smaller. I wish they had made this in a silk / wool pencil skirt. I do have and like the shirt though.
