J. Crew - February (IV)

New arrivals were in the J. Crew store last weekend and I was there to check some out. One that looked cute on the hanger was the Tweed-Stripe Drop-Waist Dress size 4. A poly/cotton mix, it fits TTS and falls above the knee on me (I am 5'6").

Next was the Boy Shirt in Jet-Set Geo size 4, my most common size in shirts at J. Crew. The shirt is made of the beautiful cotton & silk fabric J. Crew uses for some of their shirts. It's much prettier in real life than in the website photo, I think. The skirt is the Pleated Midi Skirt in Metallic Voile size 2. I am usually size 2 in pencil skirt at J Crew and 4 in this type of skirts. However, this one has an elastic waist, so it is more forgiving. The fabric is a very light cotton with metallic throughout. The sandals are the Marlow Mules in 'seashore beige' and they fit TTS. They are very comfortable on my feet. There is also a 'navy' version that look great as well.

I also tried the Mirror Metallic d'Orsay Loafer Flats size 8 1/2. I grabbed these off the display, but they are half a size larger than I normally wear in most J. Crew shoes and they do fit large.

And lastly for now, the Collection Chiffon Fringe Sweater size S and 'wheat' colour. It fits quite boxy and could probably size down one size for a more fitted look. The yarn is all cotton so it feels great on. The fringes are fun, but a few pieces fell off while I was trying the sweater on.

That's all for now, but have a few more photos for a future post. What do you like at J. Crew right now?

Hope you are having a great weekend, and thanks for visiting my blog!
