Yes, I got sucked in by the recent promos offered. Don't judge me.
So first the tees...
Tweed Front Tee in Black, Size L
I really, really, really wanted this to work. It is well made and fits great. I just do not like the tee shirt part. It really cheapens the top. I also found it quite flattering and not real boxy.
The details on the tweed are terrific. The weave is nice and tight. The black is a soft black.
Cute little pocket
The trim runs around the neck. Sigh. I know they made a navy last year and maybe I'll stalk one on e-bay. This was just short of a keeper.
Drapey Raglan Sweatshirt, Size L in Navy
On Model in Natural
Meh. I do believe it is the perfect scoop neck. The inside is not soft but not bothersome either.
I do like the texture.
Side vents instead of the typical sweatshirt band we all love :)
This is not very thick. Obviously from the model shot, you can layer with a shirt if that is your cup of tea. Personally, it drives me nuts. I can never get it to lay right and have no patience to make much of an effort.
Okay...since that was so much fun, let's move on to the blouses.
Silk Henley Top in Warm Jade, Size Medium
Why did no one review this? I kept waiting and waiting.
I do believe I am having a "fat" day.
Under arms, no bra strap showing.
Cute open but won't stay that way.
I know it's a bit wrinkly. There is pleating at the shoulders.
Pleating below buttons
Pleating on either side in the back. The middle one is a wrinkle.
Couldn't quite tell what this picture was but now I get it. Turn you head to the left side. The buttons and placket expose the girls. Sorry, won't layer so this is a deal breaker. Again, I really wanted this to work and had been waiting to include this item in my wardrobe. No go.
Silk Gingham Top Size 10 in Navy
Hey, I put a green item in there.
Sigh. Where'd my waist go?
Little button at top.
Lined with 100% polyester.
Not a good job lining up on the right boob.
Much better with the left boob.
No peekage under arm.
Oh tucking it in is soooo much better. Yeah right.
Definitely meant to wear untucked.
I will return this but if they have it in store I might try on again just for shits and giggles.
Acropolis Blue Plaid Flannel Shirt Size 10 in Acropolis Blue
Ha! Not navy.
Now that's what I'm talking about. Soft, soft flannel. Plaid. Blue (kinda looks purple IRL). My figure came back!
Sleeves a bit long.
Girls say "Hi!" Everything lines up and no gaping.
Little bitty detail at pockets.
Lines up at the sides too. Oh I am giddy with delight. Bout freakin' time.
Love this top and if they come out with other color ways that do not include orange or pink I may get another.
I shall leave J Crew for awhile and await my birthday discount from Anthropologie. Oh...we are finally getting an Anthro in Knoxville. Grand opening August 22nd. Yeah!
