J Crew’s boy shirt in beaded chambray (02967) runs 00-16. The color is called afternoon sky. Tailored fit. Cotton. Hand wash.
Size 8 – J Crew presents a perfect combination. Beads and chambray. They go very well together. Those of you that Bedazzled already knew that. This top might look good w/the gilded capris (review). If not those, then other crazy pants.
Sleeve length. I’m 5’2″. Check it out on Fashion Love 82.
A size 6 would be a better fit. I’m a 6 except in my stomach area, which is bigger. When I’m reviewing, I gauge off the shoulder. This size 8 extends paast my shoulder, so I say this is TTS. Try to get your usual J Crew numeric size. I would get a 6 and be sure to wear it on days it fit well. lol
A full length shot. I usually think of prison movies, like…I dunno… Shawshank Redemption, when I see denim on denim like this. No orange jumpsuits for them. I’m warming up to the idea of head-to-toe denim, in general. However when I imagine myself wearing the combo, a jacket or blazer is always included in the picture. The new schoolboy in navy might look nice, but would hide most of the beads.
There are 20 bead clusters. 10 on the left and 10 on the right. There are no beads on the reverse. I didn’t lift or touch the beads, but they seemed to be sewn on well. I didn’t feel like the top was fragile because of them. Of course I thought of Sew Petite Gal’s jeweled diy. Earring posts & backings potentially poking into the torso is not a fun thought. It would still be an easy diy to sew your own crystals. I should’ve gotten a close up pic of the ones on this top. I think there are 3-4 crystals sewns to make up the teardrop shape. And they’re the good kind of crysals that are in a setting.
If they treat this like the Tilda rhinestone top we will not be seeing this on promo. So if you see a global promo, you might want to jump on it. Is it “worth full price’? That’s totally up to the individual.
