Embroidered bib peasant top in suckered stripe (HO13, $98) runs 00-16 (07660), petite 00-12 (08850) and tall 2-14 (08851). Color choices are bright blue & white. 99% cotton, 1% spandex.
Size 6 – In some of these styles I will take a 4, instead of 6. In this case, it didn’t look oversized on the hangers so I pulled a 6. That’s the size I would choose. I have a few boho veins and arteries, but don’t even bother with it most times because it can be difficult switch to mix in preppy. This is boho, but gives the structure I like. The sleeves aren’t too long and I woud just stick with regular 6 and not go to 8P. I should measure my arms. I think they’re in-between petite and regular, leaning more toward regular in length.
Great blue color.
I love the pinhole stripe detail across the body of the top and the arms.
The chevron embroidery is nice, too.
I ended up w/size 4, love it and have actually worn it.
Embroidered bib peasant top ($98) comes in solid black. It runs 00-16 (06917) and petite 00-12 (08880). Only size petite 00 available at the time of writing. I’m thinking they didn’t make a ton of the petite sizes. I’ve been trained to do a double take of black and navy items from J. Crew since they make the shade so similar in color. The embroidery is blue and overall, the top reads like a very dark navy. Based on that and being trained by J Crew to be confused about the 2 colors. I didn’t find it to be a pure, rich, deep unmistakable black. I had to hold it up to the light. Again, this is my opinion having stepped out in navy J. Crew gear — a number of times — thinking I had chosen black. It’s fun being out and looking like I got dressed in the dark. I like this one, though.
Both the stripe and solid peasant bib tops are on promo for $78 + 40% BYEWINTER = $46.80. That’s more than 50% off the retail asking price of $98. I haven’t bought this because I wouldn’t wear it soon and I’d hate to see it in-store for $39.99 + 30% the day after my return window expires. Some of you know exactly what I mean. I keep thinking about it, though…
