Here it is.
Madewell’s much talked about denim downshift top (B0950, $88) is now $49.99. PICKMEUP gets an addtl 30% off thru Mon, 10/20. It runs XS – L and the color is called everly wash (EWA). There’s also the denim downshift dress, now $89.99.
Size S – chest = 38.25″, bottom opening = 41.5″, front length 26.5″
Size M – chest = 40.25″, bottom opening = 43.5″, front length 26.75″
You or someone you know is into hair gel — sounds so 90s — I’m using Eco Styling Gel. My hair is extremely dry, but this does a good job at giving it some sheen during the day. Alcohol free. The tub I purchased is so big. I’ll probably still be slicking my hair with it when Mini’s in high school.
I’m 5’0″ and measure 37″ across the fullest part of my chest. I used to take size M in Madewell, but they’ve changed their sizing. Now I’m on the fence betweenn S and M and lately size S has been the better fit. I don’t know why it’s not fitting some JCAs that are smaller than me. I still have a belly and it fits fine. I’ve been drinking apple cider vinegar twice a day for a few weeks, so my weight is holding steady. I haven’t lost any, though. Based on help from a fellow J Crew Aficionada and the measurements above, I chose the S. I usually wear a 6 in tops and bottoms.
I didn’t find it tight in the shoulders, as I stated in another post. More accurately, it was a little tight in the bicep area and at my upper back above my horizontal bra strap. I’ve already worn it three times and find it comfortable. I wore it for about 4 hours the other day and then yesterday I wore it all day. Don’t worry, it’s in the hamper now. It doesn’t stretch out too much, but it wrinkles as you can see above, esp since I wore it 2 days in a row and spend a couple hours driving in the car. I don’t mind the wrinkles in this case because I wear it casually.
I wish this lip color showed up better. It’s a bright pink, M.A.C. tinted lipglass in pink poodle.
PICKMEUP for 30% off promo & final sale items ends Monday, I really wish I’d seen the linkfringe chandelier earrings in-person. For a net $10 they’ve been calling my name the past couple of promos. It’s extremely tempting with the free shipping. I’m not a vampire, but I do bite (slaps knee). So corny. I also really want the denim crop tank because my fever for chambray has spiked and is holding steady. If I get it, I’ll probably go for M.
