The new arrivals continue. I feel like I tried on most of the items from this rollout that even slightly interested me so I'm sad I have to wait until mid-August for more. Then again, mid-August is coming a lot sooner than I'd like to think (I believe August 19th is the next rollout)!
J. Crew definitely does sweatshirts well. I love the heathered color and the fit of this one. Slim enough to be flattering and slouchy enough to be chic. The gems feel a bit heavy for me and the sleeves too long. If the sleeves were shorter and I layered this over a button-down I think I would love it. Then again, why not just make it without jewels? More to my taste...
Andie Chino with Tuxedo Stripe (size 0)
Jeweled Sweater Tee (XS) in Nickel Titanium
Mmm... yeah. The fit is slightly oversized and the jewels are interesting but I just don't know. Neckline too high? Too many things going on (baseball tee coloring, jewels, oversize)? I'm not sure how to carry off this look, or more importantly, that I should.
Unknown Plaid Shirt (size 2)
This must be in-store only or something. It's cute and basic fare for J Crew button-downs. I don't generally like button-flap pockets on my boobs because I'm already carrying enough baggage up there but for most it would be fine. It's definitely a great little plaid shirt but I didn't feel like there was anything special about it. These days, the plaid has to be really beautiful or an interesting color combo for me to buy it.
Silk Gingham Top (size 2)
Drapey Sailor Tee in Madagascar Peri (size XS)
I would size down on this one. Pretty big although the description does say "drapey" so I should have known. It is a true boatneck in that the fabric goes straight across - no dipping down. Made me look a bit thick. Nice lightweight material and beautiful colors. Might be more intrigued by the XXS.
