J Crew June Arrivals: Stretch Reid in Crop, Andie Chino, Swiss-Dot Pom-Pom Skirt, Embroidered Tassel Top in Arrow Print, Boy Shirt in Stripe Gauze

Still on the hunt for some new white denim, I tried on the Stretch Reid Crop Jean in Chalk in a size 29. These were unfortunately not a good fit. They were a little bunchy in the front but tight in the thighs. They are to the floor and not cropped for me and a little see-through. The only place they fit was in the waist. So, I’m still searching for White Denim. I’ll keep posting any that I try on, especially if they were suggestions from my post.


The Andie Chino in Dusty Quartz is a nice peachy pink color. This color is not something I gravitate to, especially on bottom. These are a bit see-through for my darker skin tone but fit in my normal size 8. They are a great color for Spring and Summer.

The Swiss-Dot Pom-Pom Skirt in Dusty Pomegranate will be perfect for Fall. The color just screams Fall to me. I am wearing a size 6 which was perfect on me.

My VPS gave me the Embroidered Tassel Top in Arrow Print to try on with the Andie Chino’s. I wasn’t a fan. The fit was fine though I don’t recall the size, probably a 6. This seems too young or juvenile for me. I thought it might be the tassels so I tucked them away but I just think it’s the style overall. I did look cute with the Andie Chino in Dusty Quartz.

The one item I have loved since it came out is the Boy Shirt in Stripe Gauze. I tried the Stripe Gauze Tunic and it was very big on me, even in the Small. The Boy Shirt, in a size 8, is a much better fit and style for me. I took this one home. 
I have a few Dresses coming up later. 
Have a Great Day!

    I feel your "pain" on trying to find the perfect cropped white jean, it is nearly impossible,
    GAP had some on sale still not cropped for those who are shorter but you can roll them.

      Kate – Thanks for the tip. If I find one on sale or with a promo and they are too long I will get them altered. It would be nice, though, to find them like I want off the rack.

    Try Boden. The only place i could find them. This was a few years back and I still have them but they have some similar offerings now.
