J Crew’s collection jeweled sequin sweatshirt (HO13, 09190, $278) runs XXS – XL. The color is called athletic grey ivory (AGI). It got a 2nd cut on 12/27 from $199.99 to $149.99 online and was marked regular price in-store on 12/26.
Size S – I wish I’d taken a M in there to try as well, just to see what it looked like. Sometimes tops will get too big under the arms if I go w/M, adding extra material and weight between my arm and chest. This fit exactly. I’d say tts. The sweatshirt portion was thick and cozy.
There’s some weight to the sweatshirt w/all of the sequins, so taking a M might be fine for me because it might hang well even if there’s extra material under the arms. It’s not that heavy. But there was definitely some weight to it that might affect the fit in a positive way, if I were to try the M.
Masses and masses of sequins. Plus zee jewels.
Quilted jacket ($278) runs regular 00-16 (02775) and I see petite 00-10 (05461). Not sure if it went to 12P. It’s currently $99.99 online. The color is called navy (NAV).
Body: 55% cotton, 30% acrylic, 15% poly
Yoke: 100% cotton
Lining: 100% cotton
Fill: 100% poly
Size 12 – I think this was the only one on the rack to try. This one and maybe a size 0. I wanted to at least be able to get it on, lol. The overall color looked black to me. The top part is definitely navy. The body looks faded black or grey. Speckled.
If I were getting this, I would call for measurements. I’m guessing it runs tts, though, so I’d be in a 6. Or if I wanted to ensure the sleeves weren’t too long, I’d get the 8P. If you didn’t like the Liberty quilted jacket in chive (review), I don’t think you’ll like this.
The Liberty has a couple of hook closures. This has a zipper, which I like better.
