J. Crew - April (I)

I have had these photos for a while but didn't get around to them up until now. From the photo of the dressing room load below, I already reviewed the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Feather Paisley and the Zip Front T-Shirt Dress here before.

The colorblock cotton dress below is an in-store only item #83357 size S. It's the same idea as the Maritime Dress, lateral bottom zipper included, which is currently on sale (seen here previously). (Edit: it now has a name and it is the Colorblock Maritime Dress.)

 (See more colorblock dresses here, here , here and maxi ones here, here, here, here)

The Tippi Sweater in Orchard Print below doesn't seem to be on the website any longer. While I was snoozing, it may have sold out. (Edit: Tippi Sweater in Orchard Print is back on). The background is taupe, not white. It is item #72759, if you are interested in having a personal shopper locate one for you. I called 2 Seattle stores and both still had them in stock. I paired it with the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton in size 2 and 'natural' colour which you have seen here before. 

The Big Apple Tunic Dress in size 2. I don't care for large prints, and you can barely make out what this is of anyway. I can see this worn on a tropical vacation where you would want to stay cool. It is short on me at 5'6", but the huge hem you can see in the photo below (at least 2 inches) might be let out by a skillful seamstress.

Hope you all had a restful weekend.  I am already excited as my FL trip is less than 3 weeks away, so I am scouting for bathing suits, a denim skirt & a denim jacket. I have seen a nice denim jacket at Old Navy and it seems it has an excellent price. If I do get it, I will make sure to review it.


  1. I really loved the Gondola stripe top when I tried it on Saturday, I couldn't justify purchasing it over the weekend cause I had found too many lovelies I liked. Wish that skirt pattern was in store when I was there! I probably would have bought it.


    1. Thanks for visiting, Tasia! I loved it too, but not full price love. I couldn't believe what a nice quality it was. I will have to do a review of it soon.

  2. Thank you for the reviews, the are great. I love Maritime dress , but somehow appeal is lost on me in coloblock version. Tunic is cute, but I wish it was a bit longer too. Of course everything looks great on you .:)

    1. I actually like the colorblock version better. I think it's more flattering than the stripes. Thanks, Slastena! You are too kind. :)

  3. Thanks for the link love! We'll have to plan a trip to check out the April roll out. Just got the Style Guide, I mean, catalog in the mail. Some cute stuff. Great reviews!

    1. You are very welcome! Ah, really? I haven't seen one in months! Hmmmm.....

  4. Love the last dress cute
