Factory gingham button-down shirt ($64.50) runs regular XXS – XXL (B9491) and petite PXXS – PXL (B9477). 100% cotton.. Current, online color choices are navy check and pale pink.
Size M – I don’t see this color online. I tried the top on around Aug 24. The color code is WGR, winter green? It’s from SU15 (summer 2015) and was with the regular price priced merchandise; not on sale.
This top is much longer than J. Crew’s usual buttondowns. I was surprised. I”m 5’0″ and 34DD for size reference. I liked the looseness of the M to allow it to be tied at the waist. That’s the size I usually get if I want to ensure that I can tie a top, Ellie May Clampett style.
I didn’t find the fabric to be see-thru like the spring version of this top. The length is a bit long. It was bordering on tunic length on me. I would probably go for PM, which is actually a S equivalent.
This is one of my favorite pieces of all time from J. Crew. I have 2 of the printed and 3 solid. Didn’t stop me from adding white the other day.
Clothes have gotten really odd and uninspiring. Couple that with my Crohn’s and anemia issues, it makes blogging even less inspiring. Also, I’ve honed in on good audition outfits and keep those on repeat. I think I’ll do a post about them. Anyway — I used to buy a lot of things ‘just in case’ and ‘just cuz,’ and that part of me will always be alive somehow. However, I’ve gotten considerably better about talking myself out of totally impractical pieces. I will buy glittery shoes because I would wear them with jeans to a voiceover job. But I will think twice before buying some of the dresses and things I’ve purchased in the past and never wore.
I really like my GGS brand and would like to keep it. At the same time, I’ve also been wondering if I should switch out to something else. I haven’t had a lot of time to ponder what that would look like or what it would be called. I feel like the things I want to continue to share — incl little girl tea parties! — involved shopping, to some degree. I don’t really want to start a lifestyle blog.
