On to the J.Crew Cherry Print items. My store had all the basic items offered. We don’t receive Collection or many shoes, unless they are returned so I was unable to try on the Collection Jacquard Sheath Dress in Cherry Print or the heels or flats.
~ Tippi Sweater in Cherry Print, Medium ~
This fits like all other Tippi Sweaters. The cherries are red on a black background. The Tippi in a Medium always fits well everywhere except it runs a little long in the length. I haven’t worn my Bee Tippi (included in the current promo) so I passed on the Cherry Print.
~ Tuxedo Ruffle Top in Silk Georgette, size 8 ~
The Frances ruffle is back. The ruffles on this top are the same as the Frances Cami and shirts from 2009. This top does have the tuxedo pleating down the front. The color is ivory with black, tiny polka dots. This fits fine in the size 8. It’s really cute for work but not something I need or will wear very often. The Boy Shirt in Polka Dot in the same colors would be a better option for me. I do like putting either under the Tippi in Cherry Print, mixing the two different prints and patterns.
~ Pleated Midi Skirt in Cherry Print, size 8 ~
I actually thought this skirt was really cute. But I just cannot wear midi skirts without feeling like I look way too short. The size 8 fit really well, so this is TTS. I think the Tippi and Midi Skirt work well together. The black background on both are very similar.
~ Classic Popover Shirt in Cherry Print, size 10 ~
I felt the size 10 was the right size for me, right now. That could change if weight loss happens but I’m ok with the size up. I think this goes well with the Sammie Cords in Masala Chai and I did finally purchase those with this promo. I have a red Tippi I think I’ll put on over this at some point but this shirt is a great transition piece to wear through Fall before layering for Winter.
~ Faux-Leather Pleated Mini Skirt, size 8 ~
This is the same style skirt that was offered last year for Fall. I still think the size 8 fit just fine. This is a mini skirt but it only hit about an inch above the knee on me. I seem to be gravitating more towards pants and jeans so I don’t think I would get enough wear out of the black colorway to justify a full-price purchase. I do like the Cabernet color though my store didn’t have it in stock.
~ Silk Wrap Dress in Cherry Print, size 8 ~
This wrap dress fits great in the top, as you can see. If you aren’t afraid of showing off the girls then this dress is for you. The problem for me was it would not zip up the side completely. The zipper got stuck at the waist seam which I know means it wasn’t the right size. I would probably need a size 10. Unfortunately, this doesn’t come in a Petite.
I do love the flamenco/wrap-style of the skirt on this dress. From the Spring/Summer Preview at Fashion Week it looks like J.Crew might be trying to bring this skirt style next year. If you are curvy like me, I would say to size up. I think someone who’s more of a straight/boy shape will be ok in their normal size.
The current promo is 25% off tees, sweaters, jackets & more, with code SHOPNOW. My store honored any items that were part of the online promo and they also had a few different promos in-store including 25% off shirts. Because of that, I was able to buy the Popover at 25% off.
