J Crew Pineapple Punch Silk Tunic

I ordered the Pineapple Punch Silk Tunic last week since I needed a ride-along and really liked what I saw online.

J Crew’s Description: Fresh and elegant all at once, a chic throw-on-and-go tunic made from sumptuous silk habotai with exquisite design details, like long blouson sleeves and shirring along the neckline. In a luxurious beachy-chic tropical print. Functional buttons at cuffs. Hidden on-seam pockets. Comes in XS to XL and is $88.00.

I love the silk. The design is so pretty. So are the colors. And they are correct in their description “long blouson sleeves’. Really long. Anticipating it would run big and loose and since I knew it was a cover-up I ordered a small instead of a Medium. I should have sized to an X-Small.

It has POCKETS! OMG! I love that!

See the sleeves. Down to the middle of my hand.
Oh well. I tried it and it didn’t work out. It’s crazy to wear long sleeves in this Texas weather anyway. Size way down if you do want this. I’ll wait until a sale and re-consider it then.
Have a great evening!

    Thanks for the review. I adore the tunic online, but I'm not sure how much use I'd get out of it at full price. Good to know about the sizing.

    Ooh, I am digging the pattern and color – and how did I miss this tunic online?!

    Oh it's great fun, I really like it. I have stumpy arms all sleeves are long on me.
