J Crew’s dotted silk shell (91978, $98) runs 00-16. The color choices are heritage green & ivory. The top got marked down today, 1/16. It seems to only be online, although the product description doesn’t state that.
Size 6 – Good fit. It has pleating at the neckline, which creates a blouson-y, fuller look down the front, but I’m sure 6 is the right size at the moment. The description says the top has a slight A-line shape. I can agree with that. You can just see my bra peeking out at my right shoulder, but…
…it has the bra strap holders/snaps. I just wanted to show you how much a regular bra peeked out, without utilizing those.
Showing it with a “J Crew” necklace. Or so the ad said. Purchased last year from Ebay. Wearing a longer necklace w/a heavy-ish pendant would get the blouse to lay down more flat. However, I think if you have a flat stomach, it will lie relatively flat. My stomach is definitely pushing out the top.
This is where I look when deciding between two sizes. This is a 6. A size 4 would get too high under the arm for my taste. I do not like sweating in silk.
Two covered buttons at the back neck. And there’s a nice keyhole.
A close-up shot. I’m wearing a black bra. So you can gauge the sheerness by how much you can or cannot see of that. It’s not too bad, but I would definitely wear a nude bra.
Shoes of the day. Well, actually, I just tried them on with the top.
Totally wish I could see the heritage green. That looks pretty & is something different besides black/white polka dots.
