Embroidered floral tee (SU14, A6835, $62.50) runs XXS – XL. Color choices are black ashen clay, heather silver ivory, midnight ocean & sweet vanilla navy. Interesting that the tag says SU14, which is Summer 14. This tee was released in Feb in-store.
4/10 – Currently on promo for $55. Midnight ocean is $45.99 online.
Size S – heather silver ivory – This is a pale grey and I’m a big fan of grey, so I liked it. The fabric on these tees is weighty. Not thick, but not thin. It feels sturdy.
TTS, for the most part. I would go for the S.
This print was ok. I preferred the color above.
Embroidered merino sweater (SP14, A2201, $89.50) runs XXS – XXL. Color choices are dove taupe, mauve ivory & slate navy. 100% merino wool. It’s currently on sale online for $69.99.
Size S – mauve ivory – This is a very pretty color. If I was working w/similar shades, I would get this. I didn’t like it at first. It made me think of maternity gear. Not a bad thing. Then after I was in it for a minute, I decided I liked the litte swing. It’s fun.
Size S – mauve ivory – Notice those fitted arms. TTS. Don’t size down.
Merino zip-shoulder sweater (A5142, $79.50) runs XXS – XL. Color choices are dark artichoke, heather oatmeal stone, heather slate stone, ivory, midnight, neon rose and pink bouquet. 100% merino wool.
Size XS – dark artichoke – It looked fairly swingy, folded on the table, so I tried XS. I have since tried S and that’s a better fit. You’ll see why in just a little bit.
Love this color. We have a dislike-hate feeling about zipper exposure & placement these days, but I liked them in this case. For length considerations, I’m 5’0″.
The zip is kinda interesting going down the shoulder. Even though it goes into a drop sleeve. I think I need my temp checked. Usually zippers and drop shoulders are no-nos.
Size XS – neon rose – I used to wear this color a lot. It can be a brightener, but I currenty prefer more contrast. It’s a very pretty color. #gigiapproved
Check out the pic on the right. This is a good example of why the XS is too big. Don’t size down, imo. The sweater is intended to fit as it would tts. For most of us. There will always be exceptions.
Some ppl like to wear their things tight.
I did bite on this sale. As I mentioned on The Mothership, where J Crew Aficionadas frolic and play, I got the drapey crepe tank (review) & the cashmere sweatshirt (review). I’m so excited it popped back in neon hyacinth.
