J Crew: Fall/Holiday 2010 – Skirts

First off…CONGRATS TO THE TEXAS RANGERS!!! World Series – Here we come!

Now on to the reviews and pics. I’ve collaged the pics and will try to do these in groups. Since I started with skirts (Taffeta Marvelle Mini) I’ll continue with them.
Crinkled Tier Mini – Very cute. I liked the fit of the 8 a little better since there is no give in the waistband. Online it looks like the skirt was steamed and more poofy. As you can see there isn’t too much difference in length between the 6 & 8. Would look really cute with tights. 

Silk Bubble Mini – Tried on in the Olive Moss and it also comes in Warm Taupe. I loved this. I bought the Bubble Paisley Mini over the summer and wore it constantly. It looks cute with the Lisette Lace Shell and the Drapey Sequin Tank. I’m wearing the Medium and it fits great. It has an elastic waistband so you can adjust to wear it lower on your waist/hips.

Moss Tweed Mini – Cute but WAY TOO SHORT! I’m sure it would look cute with tights but a pass for me. Almost no difference in length between the 6 and 8. Also, the waist, for me, was a little snug in the 6.

Sunnie Pencil Skirt – Online description – The perfect cubicle-to-cocktails piece, our famously slimming pencil skirt in a richly textured, mellow-yellow tweed (a warmer alternative to winter’s starker shades of blacks, whites and greys).” This is a golden color online. As you can see with the middle picture (taken with flash), the golden yellow is very subdued on the skirt IRL. But I loved the skirt. It’s a shorter length (22 inches according to online) and the fit was amazing. The color on the tag was the same color online, so from what I can figure out there is not an “in-store” vs. “online” color. (Unless GMU also means Gray Multi and not Gold Multi.)

More to come over the weekend as I have time. I have tees, camis/tops, and a few dresses coming up.

    My preschool daughter has few bubble skirts from Crewcuts. It would be funny if we both wore it at the same time.
    The Sunnie looks great on you. Oh, JC does pencil skirts SO well.

    Good to know the Sunnie comes in another color. I'm so curious to see the gold.
