J. Crew Review - Tabby Sweater and Collection Silk Georgette Blouse

Word of warning - Do not buy the Collection Silk Georgette blouse without trying it on first! It runs very, very big. Just had to say that.

Collection Silk Georgette Blouse (size 2) in Bohemian Red

This is a hot mess. First of all, it feels at least 2 sizes too big. The v-neck in front is really low requiring a cami. Also not a fan of all the ruffles, too much. Finally the color was too bright for me. Luckily, I tried this out before sale so I am not stuck with it.

Tabby Sweater (XS and S respectively)

The pictures don't show a very big difference. The XS if very figure flattering but to be honest, I'm not sure I want a cat sweater to show off my figure. I want it to be sort of cute and silly and cozy. It does look like the is a bit more hidden on the size small but that could just be how I put it on. Anyway, I think I prefer the small and I love both.

What do you think?


  1. The cat sweater is adorable. I like the small better, too.

  2. I am not feeling the kitty sweater even after seeing it in the store.

    The blouse's neckline might hit you in a better spot if you size down to 0 or 00. Let us know if you re-buy in a smaller size. I like the colour a lot.

  3. Thanks for reviewing the blouse -- I was just hoping I'd stumble upon a review as the blouse was tempting me now that it's on sale with a 30% off. It's too bad that it's huge; I am once again sized out of J.Crew's sizes since so many of their recent tops have been boxy and large. I was concerned about the colors, too; I was drawn to the Standard Purple and considered the red one as well, but your review confirmed my fears that the red, at least, is too bright. Too bad. I thought I'd love the style. I'm more of a fan of softer, rustic or dreamy shades, and if they'd offered those as well as a decent fit, I would've gone for the blouse.
