J Crew’s Cate cami (07897, $110) comes in black, deep riviera and white ash, 00-16. 100% silk. There are bra keeps in the straps. I like that the straps are wider than the silk cami ($59.50). The silk cami feels more like lingerie or something you wear underneath a sweater or blouse. The Cate feels like something you can wear solo.
It’s currently $89.99 online & $89.99 in-store.
12/5 – $69.99 online
Size 6 – Pic on the left. The cami highlighted my midsection, which was having a bad day. I could still tell that 6 was too big. I had the size 4 ordered. Pic on the right. The v is lower than I would usually go, but somehow it works. I think with the bra in the bra keeps, the cami will have enough coverage. I like that it looks good solo. I’m thinking of a couple pairs of crazy pants I own. It’s a net $54 if you get 40% off of $89.99. I think I’d get the cost/wear low.
I reviewed the Cate cami in gilded paisley lamé & Cate cami in iced lilac paisley in this post.
