I finally made an “official” appointment with my P/S for this roll-out. Usually I just go in on the first day and she has stuff pulled for me. It was nice to walk in to the dressing room and have everything laid out for me already.
First up – Trim Beaded Cardi $138 (not on the website); Sequins! This fit TTS and the collar is like a shawl collar, meant to go higher up on the back of the neck. There are no fasteners in the front. It’s meant to be open.
I also tried on a really cute side zipper sweater in cream. It was very Anthro-like. Unfortunately I didn’t get a pic or remember the price but it was really cute.
Watercolor Leopard Skirt – I never read the description on the website and thought this was silk. It’s actually a cotton/silk blend, more cotton feel than silk. It’s really cute and I tried it on with the Elizabeth ruffle shirt in Lavender.
Sapphire Tweed Pencil Skirt – This was a great find. My store does not carry Collection pieces and this was a return after someone ordered it online. It was a size 4 but was so pretty IRL I HAD to try it on – knowing it wouldn’t fit (I haven’t been a 4 in yeeeaaarrrsss.) So imagine my excitement when…it fit…it FIT…IT FIT! I’m glad I didn’t order this online in a 6 because this is truly a size smaller and probably why it was returned to the store.
Black Nubby Tweed Mini – I have no idea what the actual name of this was. But it wasn’t a great fit – too square, too short and certainly doesn’t look good without some sort of leg wear.
Toothpick Ankle Cord in Dark Aubergine – This color is gorgeous. Over the summer I tried on both the matchstick and toothpick jean. The fit was awful – too tight in the hips and butt and the more I sized up the looser the waist was. J Crew must have adjusted their sizing because I love the fit of these. So much that I returned my Bootcut Cords.
I also tried on the Ankle Stretch Toothpick Jean in Amore Wash. Again it fit great but I have a BR dark wash Classic Skinny I love that I wear tucked into boots.
