Collection Short-Sleeve Beaded Sweater (XS)
I knew this would be a pass for me but wanted to keep an open mind. I love the colors and the embroidery is certainly interesting but the shape is totally unflattering. Maybe the XXS would have helped? I doubt it since this sweater is supposed to have a swingy shape. The price tag is also ouch for something that looks like I picked it up in my local thrift shop.
Collection Cashmere Sweater in Punk Floral (XS)
This might be my favorite iteration of the "punk floral" print. The sweater is a great length, very soft and I love the button detail at the shoulder. The one lone bloom on the back is also quite cute. I'm sure this will sell well like the rest of the punk floral stuff but I can't justify the price tag. Still not totally in love with this print anyway.
Vintage Cotton Tee (size XS)
I usually prefer v-necks but this was $9.99 + 30% off + educator discount so even if it falls apart after 2 washes I don't care. I adore the color and the fit is spot on.
Collection Featherweight Cashmere Sweater in Sorbet Stripe (XS)
I've been intrigued by all the candy colored lightweight cashmere but they don't carry all of them in my local store. I thought I would love this but I think it's sort of meh. The lines of the pattern are not that flattering for the body. The colors are fun. I would say this fits slightly smallish for an XS.
Embroidered Gauze Top (size 2)
Minnie Pant in Stretch Twill (size 0) in navy
Embroidered Eyelet Tank (XS)
A cute basic for the summer. WHAT IS UP WITH THE HIGH NECKLINES? Please stop J Crew. It's either this or the huge plunge. What about a moderate scoop? A gentle vee? please?
In store only? 5 inch seersucker short
These are on sale for $39.99. I tried them on the other day in the size 2. The size 0 probably fits more exactly but I would be fine either way. I didn't bite on these but perhaps I should have. Was worried about what the wear on top and can't totally wrap my brain around wearing shorts again. I have a love/hate relationship with them.
5" Chino Short in Sea Glass (size 0)
Again, tried these on the other day in a size 2 and feel like the 0 fit better. Cute. Love the color but not sure what to pair with it besides white and black. $29.99 in store.
Cargo Scout Chino (size 00) in vintage green
These are pants that I think look slightly dorky but I also think I'll get a ton of wear out of them. I was waffling between the 0 and 00 because I often buy the size that fits perfectly in store and then within a day of wearing it they are baggy and gross. I took a risk and got these which are a little snug with the thought that they will give after some wear. I really like the way they fit at the top. Slightly snug at the bottom (more so than you would think since the model wears them slightly rolled up - not possible).
