J. Crew Sequin Floral Sweater

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Sequin Floral Sweater caught my eye as soon as new arrivals were uploaded on the website.  This sweater is absolutely stunning.  The details are SO striking.  But, I was super concerned about the fit because the sweater looked boxy on the model.  It is a boxy fit, but I like it layered.

Here are two IRL pictures of the sweater:

Here is a closer look at the sequin detailing on the sleeves:

Fit:  I took my normal size large; however, several reviewers on the J. Crew website note that they sized down.  The "girls" will not let me size down, LOL!  Moreover, I knew that I would layer underneath the sweater with the J. Crew Stretch Perfect Shirt.

Have you tried this sweater?

I have a review of the J. Crew Midsummer Statement Necklace scheduled for tomorrow.

Finally, I would like to make a plug for a really great Facebook page for J. Crew/Madewell lovers, the J. Crew and Madewell Buy, Sell, and Trade Group.  This group is really great, check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!

J. Crew Reese Pant in Graphic Peony

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Reese Pant in Graphic Peony is a thing of beauty.  I flat out LOVE this print and these pants.

Here is how I styled the pants:

Details:  Blazer, Shirt (factory version here), Pants, Necklace, Shoes

Fit:  I sized down from a 14 to a 12 in these pants.  I have sized down in all of the J. Crew "drapey" fit pants such as the Turner Pant.

Have you tried the Reese pant?  I think that this one is a winner, winner, chicken dinner!

J. Crew Fabric d'Orsay Flats

Hi Everyone!

Color me unimpressed with the shoe offerings in the last batch of J. Crew new arrivals.   However, the Fabric d'Orsay Flats are absolutely gorgeous.

Here are two IRL pictures of the shoes:

I absolutely love the colors/design/quality of this shoe!  The website suggests sizing down a 1/2 shoe size, but I took my normal size 9.  The 1/2 size down would have been too small.

Have you tried these shoes?

I have several other reviews scheduled for this weekend including the following:

J. Crew Boy Shirt in Jet-Set Geo

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Boy Shirt in Jet-Set Geo immediately caught my eye in the store.  The print is fun and vibrant in my opinion.

Here are three IRL pictures of the shirt:

Here is a closer picture of the print:

I took my normal size 12 in this beauty, so I think that the fit is TTS.  I've tried on a few other new arrivals shirts that have not fit TTS such as the Oversize Boy Shirt in Polka Dot (I recommend sizing up in this one).

Have you tried the Jet-Set Geo print?
