I wear a lot of white and cream and I liked this blouse on a hanger. It looked intricate and a little Victorian, but not costumey and it seemed easy to incorporate into everyday wear.
That said I loved it!. I think it will elevate any simple outfit. I love beautiful lace. Or is this embroidery? It went on my list. While I don;t necessarily NEED it, I can certainly use it with many items in my closet.
It was $98 and 100% cotton. Of course, I wish it was less, but at least it is under $100. I hope it is not like with Madewell striped dress I liked. When I tried it it was $98, I said 'love' and next thing I know it was $118. Huh?
Pricing people at J.Crew, listen to this: It is an awful, awful shirt. The price should only move one direction. Down. Thank you.
Are you ready for a hook up?
|Capris size 4|
I don;t have any non-summer capris but I used to not like capris at all. Recently, I started to like them more, so maybe I can add those? They were $148. The tweed is 62% silk, 25% cotton, 11% viscose and 2% other fibers. I like the sound of this blend. However, if I was to order, I would order them online, because I think tweed is prone to be shop worn and possibly snagged.
I am not sure what to call this top but it is pretty cool. Is it a jacket? A shirt?
|$128, size 6, TTS|
I see a lot of possibilities with this top. It can go on its own or as a jacket with long sleeve tee or with a (white) button front. It looked good with trousers and skirts.
|Skirt size 6|
It has a bow in the back and it can be belted to give it more shape. The price is not too too bad.
The skirt is a very pretty color, isn't it?. I though initially that it was poly but is is a wool crepe. Much better.
I took size 6 to have it sit a little lower on the waist but it is not too loose and it still sites pretty high. It falls above the knee but not too short and will look nice with some winter tights. I like how the pleats are fully sewn and I like the swingy shape. It would work very well with navy and I have enough in my closet to pair it with.
Of course, I already have the wool double serge pencil skirt in bright dahlia which is very similar. Butt I don't have many wool full skirts... Maybe this is something to consider after all?
That's all folks!
Do you like any of the reviewed pieces?
Do you think I should consider any?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
