I really wasn’t all that impressed with this roll-out. I usually find one piece that is a must-have but this roll-out didn’t have that. I did add a few items to my wish-list for when they go on sale.
There’s no change in sizing on the Tippi Sweater. I still take my normal Medium though it is fitting just a little less snug in the arms. I always find the Tippi bunches around the underarm just above my chest. Anyone else? The front and sleeves of this Tippi are printed in the Ornate Floral while the back and neckline are navy. Despite the description saying this is a 27-inch sleeve sweater, this is really your standard 3/4-sleeve Tippi. I still cannot put my finger on why I’m not a fan of this print. The colors are pretty but everything in this print is going to be a pass for me.
~ Cropped Chambray Ruffle Pant, size 8 ~
Like 99% of J.Crew’s cropped pants, these are standard length on me so Petite sizing would be better for me. These did seem to run a little snug across the hips. I could sit down but would prefer a little more room. The ruffle is at the top of the waistband and the edge of the pockets. You’ll have to tuck in your shirt to show off the waistband ruffle. Personally, it’s a little much and I would have just preferred the pocket ruffle. These are also offered in Solid Chino. I do think the Chambray will be a hit for quite a few people. The waist isn’t too high or low and though this is a slim fit, the fit is still really good in this material. Not sure how it will feel or look in the solid chino.
I really liked this entire outfit. The contrasting print of the Tippi and Martie with the light pinky coral of the Audrey Flat just works. I wasn’t sure if I would like this Mermaid Print but once I saw it IRL I really thought it was cute. The mermaid does hit you right smack in the center of your stomach though. The ruffle may need a little steaming after being dry-cleaned to lift it up a little, unless you prefer it to lay flat. I think with this print, the ruffle is a little much but people will love this one too. This comes in a popover, short and bandana, which I think would be really cute for Spring.
~ Martie Pant in Windowpane, size 8 ~
The Martie Pant has not fit me in a size 8 since they first came out. I prefer the old Cafe’ Capri pant but the Windowpane fit really well in the size 8. The material is slightly thicker but not quite Winter-ish. It’s a great transition into Spring. I would have to get a Petite size to crop them. The hem has a notch that I would lose if I had these hemmed. These are definitely wish-listed.
~ Audrey Flat in Printed Snakeskin, size 7 ~
I saw a hint of these in the Style Guide and couldn’t wait to see the full view of them. The color is a light pink/coral and not a color I would normally gravitate to but I do prefer it over the suede and Liberty print. I found the size 7 to be the best fit, even with the pointy-toe and D’Orsay style. This is a completely flat shoe with no arch support. I can still walk around for hours in a shoe like this but try not to if at all possible.

Are you shopping this sweater promo or waiting for an “all-item” promo?
