~ Silk Lace-Up Shirt in Windowpane Plaid, Medium ~
I did go into the store a few weeks ago and was able to try a few things on. This Windowpane Top caught my eye, especially being aware that J.Crew had just come out with a windowpane shirt as well. It’s a little more unique from other shirts in that it has a lace-up front neckline. I have the laces pulled tight but this will require a cami underneath, especially if you want to make this work appropriate. I prefer these seamless camis from The Limited. I have several in various colors and they hug the body and feel like you aren’t even wearing them. I could have used a Small throughout the body but the Medium fit much better in the shoulders and arms for me. I don’t plan on wearing this with anything other than jeans or cords so the slouchy look is fine with me.
~ Wide-Leg Crop Drop-Hem Jeans, size 29 ~
Whenever I see a wide-leg jean, I have to try it on. I’m still searching for another great pair, after last year’s success with the Wide-Leg Crop Jeans from J.Crew. These have a “drop-hem” which I don’t really care for. If these had stayed hemmed up they would have been the perfect crop length. The fit of the size 29 were fine but overall, due to the drop-hem, they were a pass for me. The search continues.
~ Cinematheque Mockneck Sweater in Chevron, Heather Sandalwood, Small ~
I liked this little sweater immediately on the hanger. I have an aversion to turtlenecks that are too tight and feel like they are choking me. This sweater has a loose mockneck. The sleeves are a little loose at the cuff but not bell-sleeve. I like the fit of the Small as I’m sure it will stretch out some. It also comes in Heather Pebble and Black.
~ Cali Demi Boot in Mitchell Wash, Drop-Hem Edition, size 29 ~
Another drop-hem jean but I tried this on for the wash as well as to see how the Cali Demi Boot jean fit. I really like the fit and even the higher rise. They were a bit snug in the size 29 when I tried them on but they according to the reviews they will stretch some. I think because of the drop-hem you can’t really see the little flare at the hem. Had these been included in the promo I would have ordered the Donovan Wash.
~ Cityblock Mockneck Dress, Heather Gravel, Small ~
I’m always looking for cozy dresses to wear in late Fall and Winter with tights and boots. This ribbed jersey dress feels so comfortable on but the Small looked bigger on the hanger. I would size to my normal Medium in this dress. Even though it’s included in the current promo, it’s not even remotely Fall around here. I hope I will be able to grab this one when it goes to sale. I would love to see this dress in more colors too. It’s a great little dress for running around town, working from home or going to a little Fall Festival.
~ C!ao Graphic Sweatshirt, Medium ~
This is a really cute sweatshirt but has a drop-shoulder and a wide hem. It still draped well in the Medium and I wouldn’t size down. It’s nice and comfortable but I can see myself only wearing this around the house. I also prefer to layer with shirts and cardigans, in case it warms up during the day. This sweatshirt seems to be sold out online but I am sure there are still some in-stores. There’s also a tee in white with red lettering.
I did place an order, all for pants and all wide-leg crop. I’ll share my reviews of them when they arrive.
