These are the final reviews from the J Crew retail Holiday roll-out. And just in time for Black Friday shopping.
~ Boatneck T-Shirt in Multi-Color Stripe, Undyed Cinnamon Atlantic, Medium ~
I was happy to see this since the Saint James tee sold out so quickly. The medium fit well (normal size) but like the Boatneck T-Shirt I reviewed earlier, the neckline looks like it will start sagging. And sometimes I don’t pay attention to what I’m trying on and didn’t realize this is 3/4 sleeve and not long-sleeve.
~ Slim Broken in Boyfriend Cone Denim Jean, Portstewart Wash, size 29 ~
I have been trying to review the Slim Broken-in Boyfriend Jean for a while but my store sells out of the size 29 ad 30 so quickly. I finally found this lone size 29 and had them added to my fitting room. I feel these fit just fine in my normal size 29. I would probably have them hemmed instead of wearing them cuffed like this. I don’t need any jeans right now but want to keep my options open in case I need a pair of non-skinny ankle jeans.
~ Martie Pant with Tux Stripe in Glen Plaid, size 8 ~
Didn’t these just get released? They are on sale now for $99.99. I’ve tried on several different types of Martie Pants since they’ve come out in both the 6 and 8. It really depends on the material as the stretch cotton ones I needed an 8. The Sequin Herringbone is going to be better in a Petite 8 and these were perfect in the normal size 8. The only common thing between them all is that I would have to hem them.
I like the Glen Plaid and have several items in this pattern. The tux is faux leather but doesn’t look too cheap. I would probably pair these with my Tartan Shirt (Stewart Plaid) and sparkly heels for a party or Holiday gathering.
~ Perfect Shirt in Foil Dot, Navy Silver, size 8 ~
Gigi made me do it. I overlooked this shirt originally but Gigi made it look so good I had to go find it in-store and try it. I knew I would wear the Navy more so I tried that one on instead of the Ivory. Gigi is right in thinking the perfect shirts are fitting smaller. I wouldn’t size up to a 10 just yet but this is borderline for me. I love the little silver dots on these and already have plans to wear this layered with several sweaters I have. Que Bella post coming soon!
~ Lace Panel Top, Black Black, Small ~
I don’t wear a whole lot of lace. In the back of my mind I sometimes think it’s old-fashioned, if not on a wedding dress. But it’s really all in the styling isn’t it? And I found a fun way to style this top with the Perfect Shirt in Foil Dot. The color is Black Black but the lace is Navy. I would also pair this over the Stewart Plaid.
I have no idea why I grabbed a Small and not a Medium but it works. It fits very well and I like it more fitted when layering over the button-down. I would add the Tortoise Flower Necklace, the Mixed Crystal Necklace or the Factory Jeweled Compass Necklace. There’s also the Lace Panel Cardigan to layer with this top.
I’m going to assume there will be some sort of 25% off promo or “buy more save more” promo. They seem to have experimented with that a few times in recent weeks.
What promo do you think will occur for Black Friday?
