Last week I had the chance to try on a few of the newer things at J. Crew. Among them, the Three-Quarter Sleeve Beaded Top size S. I liked the idea of this top, even though I am done with stripes for a while. The beads are sewn on quite tightly, making it a bit difficult to get this top on and off.
Here are close-ups of the bead work:
A favourite is the Handknit Popcorn Sweater size S in 'heather pond' is all lambswool and fits TTS. I liked it, even though the 5-gauge knit makes this a bit see-through.
Another favourite was the Collection Chunky Turtleneck Sweater also size S in 'heather hickory.' This one is 85% cashmere and 15% mohair and it's a dream, it's so soft!
Next was the Velvet Dot Ponte Top size XS. This is one size smaller than I normally wear in tops. The fabric is viscose/nylon/spandex 66/31/6.

Lastly, the Take A Bow Sweater size S. I like the sleeves in the darker colour and its softness. It fits like a the Heartbreaker Sweater which you may have seen here before. It' s a mix of viscose/wool/nylon/angora.
More photos in a future post. Until then, thank you for dropping by and have a great Sunday, everyone!
