J Crew: Open Shawl-Collar Cardigan

~ Open Shawl-Collar Cardigan, Burgundy, XS/S ~
I know they were trying to make this an oversized, cozy cardigan but this is really large. There are two sizes, XS/S and M/L. This cardigan feels comfortable on and I can see wearing it around the house and on the couch bundled up. But for full-price or a smaller promo off, it’s not worth it to me. As Gigi would say, this doesn’t pass the Forever 21 test. I have two from there that are just as cozy and were a lot cheaper. 
~ Navy ~
I thought that maybe I would like the Navy color more and that I could overlook the over-sized fit but it’s just not a keeper for me. 

Anyone ready for Cyber Monday? 
Have a Great Sunday!

      Dianna – What did you get from Cyber Monday? I was busy all day and never had a chance to look at all the sites I wanted.

    I was wrapped up in the tan version of this sweater all day! It is really cozy. Logically, I can't say it's the nicest sweater, but I really love it for some reason.

      Cate – I agree, it is cozy but I feel so overwhelmed in it that I had to take them back.

    That sweater looks sooo long on the rack. Thank you for trying it on so I can get an idea of fit. There are a lot of things that don't pass the F21 test right now at J. Crew.

      Gigi – I saw my VPS with it on, in the gray with the sleeves pushed up and she looked cute. That made me give it another try in a different color. But I knew as soon as I brought it home it just wasn't the sweater for me.

    Hi Audrey ~ I just ordered this is in burgundy…it looks nice and cozy. How is the material? Is it thin or more of a chunky knit? By the way, I love that burgundy color on you! 🙂
