Jules Dress in Stripe Silk Twill (on sale for $139.99 online) (size 2)
Yikes. It's (maybe) hard to tell in the pictures but this thing made me look like a brick house. Very wide and short. The pockets are on the side seams which also didn't do me any favors. It's a shame because I really like the stripes with the subtle red/orange stripe but this hung like a sack. I don't think I could size down because it already felt tight in the shoulders with no give in the fabric.
Jules Dress in Wool in Retro Jade (size 2)
This was a slight improvement since the pockets are on the front but still some of the same fit issues. I felt like I needed a 0 for the body but then I probably wouldn't have been able to move my arms that well. The color is quite striking although I like the extravagant green of last year a little better. wish I could make this silhouette work for me as I love a good shift dress!
Scoopneck Silk Top in Zebra (size 2)
I can't find this blouse on the website yet but I think it's quite lovely. I hope it comes in some other prints/colors. I am not someone who loves an animal print except on accessories. Love the contrast piping at the edges and the general shape of this blouse. Please JC make it in other prints?
The Blythe blouses are lovely. This color is striking although not sure I loved it on me in person. The 0 actually fit fine with just a slight gaping at the chest. Think I would stick with my regular 2 for a bit more blousiness.
Multistripe Dolman Sleeve Tee (XXS) and Ankle Stretch Toothpick jean in Garment-Dyed Twill (size 27) in Byzantine Blue
The jeans are also nice and I love this color of blue. Still engaging in the colored denim trend without hitting someone in the face with it. Subtle blue. I sized up and they were still pretty snug but knowing JC denim I'm sure they would be perfect by end of day.
Boy Shirt in Turquoise Plaid (Size 2)
Cute and true to size. If I didn't already have about a thousand JC shirts I might be tempted but I think I'm at maximum capacity.
