J. Crew Review: A-line Midi Skirt in Mirrored Floral, Lightweight Wool Tunic Sweater, Sunday Slim Chion, Tippi Sweater and Stadium-Cloth Majesty Coat
Boo on the promo today. I was so excited for free shipping but I wanted a better percentage off final sale. Actually I really just want final sale to go away but I'm not sure if that will happen any time soon. We did have some really good breaks from it this year so maybe it will come again?
I was so sad that this a) wasn't really in my size and b) had totally weird boob pockets that stuck out significantly. I love the style of this coat - it is so classic - and the stadium cloth is a material that J Crew does well and I love. Plus navy is pretty much my all time favorite color. But, those weird pockets on the sides of the boobs, what? Granted this jacket is 2 sizes too small but even in my normal size I'm convinced those little suckers would stick out like a sore thumb. Sad.
I found some other versions that I like but none as cute as the boob flap coat.
Lightweight Wool Tunic Sweater (XS) in spearmint white
This is a new arrival and I tried it on because I like sweater-y tunics (or I guess tunic-y sweaters as the case may be) and I like the color spearmint. This one is just fine although I certainly wouldn't call it a tunic, I would just call it slouchy. I liked my normal size XS, a size smaller would look odd I think. There is a cute little seam detail on the sides.
I'm generally a little meh about the tippi but I do like the color of this one. It will go with a lot in my wardrobe. I always size up as I like a little slouch and wiggle room in them so I felt happy with the small.
I keep on trying to make these work for me. I'm not sure if they do but the vintage champagne is definitely not good for me. SEE THROUGH. Majorly. I can see wearing them a lot (in a different color) in the summer though. Soft and relaxed.
This was clearly an online return. While I could squeeze myself into the 00 it did not fit - couldn't quite zip it to the top. This fits more like a pencil skirt in my opinion. I'm finding that the pattern is less thrilling in real life. The colors are so muted. I do like how it looks from far away.
The slit is high but not obscene in my opinion. The problem for me is the length. I love the idea of a midi skirt/dress but that length makes me look so short and frumpy. Taller ladies will look great though. It's made of a nice material with just a little give and overall it's pretty interesting looking. And $79.99 on sale already? Here are a few other a-line midi options:
