* Elsie suede pumps ($245) – review, Instapic
* Gemma flats (FA15, C9488, $135) – I wear 7.5 in almost all J. Crew and other retailer flats. I tried 7.5, which fit exactly and luckily there was an 8 on the sales floor to try as well. The 8 felt more comfortable right off the bat. While in the store, I felt that the 8 would be my inclination, instead of fighting w/the 7.5 and hoping they’d stretch out enough. However, I’d try on both shoes in 7.5 and walk just a bit on the carpet to be sure before deciding. Thumbsup.
* Marlo crossbody bag in leopard ($118) – Gigi’s Gear
* Mini gingham bucket bag ($118) – review
* Parker crossbody bag (SP15, $98) – Beautiful colors. They look the same irl as online. That leather is smooth and pretty. It might scratch easily, so protect it before using.

* Downtown field jacket ($148) – A new color was added in SP16. It’s an off-white color called canvas. You can see the 2009 version of the downtown field in this post. There’s a hooded crewcuts downtown field jacket. So cute!

* Midi skirt in cotton clip dot (SU16, $89.50) – review
* Midi skirt in ornate lace (SP16, $128) – The navy is the skirt version of the dress (reviewed below). I tried on the white, sz 6. Another one where the scale doesn’t work on a petite frame. TTS, though. It’s a great, lightweight skirt. Should take you from the warmer spring months to early summer. There’s a circle detail at the hem that I like. Thumbsup.
* Mini skirt in nautical stripe (SU16, $69.50) – review
* Sheath dress in textured tweed (SP16, $158) – review
* Wide-leg ponte pant (SP16, $79.50) – I tried these on to do a review (no pics yet). I had zero interest in them because I pretty much expected them to suck. Not the case. I loved them and bought them in black. I am 5’0″ but liked the way the regular 6 looked on me, tts. I will wear heels with them and they’ll be perfect. I think the right type of boot would look good with them. Maybe something fitted could work. They’re as comfortable as yoga pants, but don’t have the athleisure look. They are fitted across the rear, so underwear type might be a consideration. Thumbsup.
* Collection cashmere getaway hoodie ($228) – review
* Collection cashmere long-sleeve tee ($158) – on Easy Petite Looks
* Collection cashmere v-neck sweater ($188) – on 1 More Shopping Blog and on Notes From the Dressing Room
* Classic merino wool long cardigan sweater (now $49.99) – I ordered a S in hazelnut, opting to not size down as I have in the past with the long cardis. The size S fit well. I has a relaxed fit in that size. I’m 5’0″ and don’t have an issue with the length being too short, as mentioned by the online reviewers. I’ve decided I’m going to return it. I sometimes have moth/bug holes in the merino wool. Between that and drycleaning, I prefer cotton cardis when I can get them. I’m more than happy with my Forever 21 $8.90 cardi in grey. I wear that the most, so I own 2 in grey. Of course you cannot be J. Crew colors, esp if you own other J. Crew clothing because they mix and match so well.

* Cotton cropped tunic (SU16, F1944, $78) – review
* Deck-stripe tee (FA15, E4413, $49.50) – Size down one. I like the pink/oatmeal. Nice weight to the fabric, but still fluid feeling.
* Double-hem tank top (FA15, $55) – This looked interesting in black sand. I didn’t think I was going to try anything on. I wish I would’ve remembered to go back and pick it up.

* Short-sleeve popover in white Irish linen – The long sleeve version of this blouse has fit very tts in the past. I wear 8P and tried on a 10P to get the slouchy look the model has. As with all 10P, once I get to that size the proportions simply don’t work. One issue this blouse has is there are no shoulder seams. The top extends from the neck down without seams to end the shoulder width and begin the sleeve. I wonder if this is a Somsack design because the body is boxy and the overall cut reminds me of Madewell. I would stick to your usual J. Crew blouse size. The linen is nice. Didn’t feel scratchy to me. Sidethumb.

Size M – chest = 39.5″, waist = 36.5″

* Stretch suiting tank ($49.50) – on A JC Shopping Habit
* Structured flutter tee (SP15, $55) – review
* Three-quarter sleeve collar t-shirt – I’m on board with many items except for this one. The Peter Pan collar isn’t as “in” as it was a couple years ago. We already saw a number of retail & factory versions of this. I wouldn’t have pulled this one from the vault. Saw it in-person, but didn’t have time to try it on. Thin fabric.

Size 6 – chest = 40.75″
