So here’s what I purchased last week from the new fall arrivals at J Crew.
The Frances cami in Deep Rose & Dark Slate, the Evening Primrose Cardi and the Stretch Twill Minnie pant.
I’m taking the pant back. It’s supposed to be a “vintage-inspired cropped leg” but is regular length for me. After bringing it home I don’t like having my “flaws” exposed. And without Spanx underneath that could very well happen. It fits well without Spanx but this is not for me. I’ll stick with the straight leg or wide leg pant.
I also purchased two necklaces, one of which is online – The Shimmering Teardrop necklace and the Glass Barrel & Chain Necklace.
The “teardrop” was a lot larger than I expected – 1 1/2 inches.
I didn’t get any of the blazers. I really did like both but in the end, it’s still to hot to even consider jackets. The sweater was the closest I could do. And I did NOT LIKE the Merino Chiffon sweater. It’s just a mess. It also looks like it could easily come undone from looking at the stitching on the inside. There’s no backing to hold it together a little more.
The Textured Jersey Boatneck tee fit a bit snug in the chest. I tried on a Medium. A large would have been too long and may have looked like a tunic. The Cotton Tuxedo shirt was cute but meh…I have a white one from the Gap and a navy from Express that I never wear. So I’ll just stick with those 2 that I don’t wear and not add to it. I did see the Crinkle Cotton Perfect Shirt in Navy and Pale Wisteria but none in my size.
I also ordered the Wool Pencil Skirt from the red phone and should receive that tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what it looks like. I hope I’m not disappointed.
Yay! Not only are the J Crew Fall arrivals now in store but I received my rewards card today too!
Below are pictures…I’ll post better ones of the purchases later and add more comments but I wanted to get these out here.
Silk Frances Cami-Deep Rose Sz 6 (a little snug around the arms for me, got an 8)
Stretch Twill Minnie Pant – Black Sz 8 (very bunchy around the crotch and ankles & too big in waist, got a 6)
