The print on the pencil skirts that I reviewed yesterday is also used in different items. The paisley print you will come in perfect fit button down and there is a scarf as well. The flower print comes in strapless dress and a scarf. There may be more pieces, this is just what I saw.
Another print this spring, in tradition of 'all things nautical', is the anchor print. To me, this is similar to apple print in terms of wearability, some will love it and some will think it is too literal, especially in navy and white.
Recently, J.Crew also seem to be doing the same shapes over and over and here we have another version of maritime dress, this time in anchor print:
|Short and (too) sweet|
|size Small, TTS|
It will not work for me, but I know many of you like this shape.
|$98 100% cotton|
Eyelet dress ( also comes in white)
This one is purple. On my phone and on my monitor at home it looked totally blue, but it is purple irl. I don't usually wear purple so I would prefer white, but if you like purple, this is a very pretty shade.
Anyway, it is a very nice dress, finally not high waist-ed, with good length and bra friendly. It has a back zipper and pockets and is fully lined in cotton. In theory sounds great, but it is just not very exciting to me, for some reason. Maybe I was just tired?
|Good length and waist in a proper place|
|Pockets and back zipper|
|Size 8, TTS, fully lined|
|size 8, TTS|
Cotton-silk perfect shirt in raj paisley
First, let me make a dislaimer. I am actually a fan of cotton/silk blend that many of you hate. I know it is kind of delicate, but those are the only shirts that I don't mind tucking in, or wearing under sweaters. They drape well and don't create bulk. And they may rip or develop holes, but I guess these are casualties of war, I mean fashion.
|$88 size 8, they did not have a 6|
|57% cotton 43% silk, pattern is matched, again!|
Luxe utility pant
Great for casual wear. They fitted me quite well, so I would think they may not work for those of you that are pear shaped, with small waist and wider hips.
I would prefer that they were longer because I think they may be borderline after they shrink. I do wash linen in regular washer and hung to dry (if I remember). I have a 33" inseam.
|$85 100% cotton|
OK, this is a another 'Talithian' blouse, this time in anchor print, 100% silk. It has three cute little ivory buttons on each shoulder. Again, it drapes well and looks good, although it seems overpriced. I think the anchor print, similarly to apple print, is definitely better in small scale.
This print is also used in scarf and in capri pants.
|size 6, fits TTS, sleeves scrunched up|
|100% silk $135|
Linen herringhbone pants in pink
The linen pants also come in pink, see below, and pretty bright shade of pink, think Pepto Bismo. I thought this would be cool with navy, but it did not work with anchor print, probably because it is silk.
|Size 4, TTS|
|that's all folks!|
