CC and I dropped in on the new Vancouver store this past weekend. Like she already blogged about in this post, the store seems quite crammed. In comparison to their American counterparts, I'd say this one is about 2/3 the size of those I have seen, maybe even smaller. Robson Street is possibly the most expensive commercial retail space in the city, so I am not surprised they couldn't afford or found something bigger there. Maybe they will open the second store at Oakridge or in West Vancouver.
I have seen most of the items before, with a few exceptions. The Lucille Dress in Scalloped Eyelet is new. I am wearing size 4, and it's is tight on my torso. I have broader shoulders than most, so a lot of the times I have to size up in dresses. I think it looks nicer with the belt, in my opinion.It's a pretty eyelet fabric, lined with 100% cotton, and I think it's a lovely summer dress. Unfortunately for me, sizing up to a 6 will not work, since the skirt part is already big enough as it is.
Cashmere Long Cardigan size XS and 'neon flamingo' is one size smaller than my usual J. Crew cardigan size. I would wear size S for a less fitted look. You can see the sleeves are quite long for size XS. I haven't bought a cashmere sweater from JC for a couple of years now, so no idea how this would stand up to wear. The colour is quite bright, and very close to the 'neon pink' of the Garment-Dyed Drawstring Shirtdress. Overall, I liked this sweater, minus the buttons, but that detail can be easily rectified.

There is a considerable size hem, so the dress could be lengthened, if needed.
And here's the OOTD I wore this weekend. Friday to Sunday I practically live in jeans, and occasionally I wear a denim skirt on casual Fridays. The Boatneck Popover is size XS. You have seen this sweater here before in size XXS. The denim pants are new and very comfortable. They have two flap back pockets.

I have 2 new dress reviews coming up in a future post.
J. Crew is doing it again... a secret MUSTSHOP code will get you 30% off sale items until Thursday. Final sale is finally gone (for now, anyway). Anything you just must have from JC?
Thank you for visiting, and hope everyone is having a great beginning of the week!
