Sequin stripe sweater (06142, $?) – I didn’t grab the price on this. I also don’t have the fabric content. I didn’t find it itchy.
Size S – That’s navy, not black, in case you can’t tell.
There are sequins on the front, but not on the reverse.
I tried it with a navy/green print scarf out of curiosity, but it didn’t work. The vibes clash. My cords are from J Crew around 2009 or so. They definitely cut the pants different. These look good, unlike most of their pants on me now.
Factory tipped blouse (09151, $79.50) runs XXS – XL. The color is called alabaster black (ABL).
Size S – I really liked it. It looks very clean. The fabric is on the thin/lightweight side. I didn’t feel like it was particularly see-thru. It will depend on what you wear under. If you wear a white cami, it will likely be very obvious thru the blouse.
When the sleeve is cuffed, the tipping is lost. Didn’t like that.
Factory merino intarsia anchor sweater (HO13, 06948, $88) -The one available online has a pink anchor and is called navy vibrant fuchsia (NVF).
Size S – Standard Charley sweater fit. TTS. It seemed a bit spring-like with the anchor motif.
The one I tried on definitely had a white anchor.
I tried it on with the tipped blouse to see how the collar would look outside of the neckline. It didn’t work because the sweater is navy and the tipping is clearly black. Also, it shows thru the sweater. Boo.
Factory Clare cardigan (14041, $49.50) – This sweater is currently available in 13 colors online. I’ve had my eye on vintage berry, but nixed that from my wishlist. I’m all about frosted plum. I don’t have a particular need for it, so it’s not a current must have.
Size M – This is light walnut (LWA). It was available online and I ordered it on waitlist back in Nov. I canceled it after seeing it in-store and how close it is to my skin color. I used to be a S in the Factory Clare. I swear they’ve made them just smaller enough, in the interest of cutting cost, that the M now fits me better. The fabric used to be a little better, too.
Q. How cute is it with the tipped blouse?
I do prefer the fabric and fit of the retail Jackie cardis. They feel a tad more substandial. The Clare works, too, and I definitely consider it when there are colors not offered in retail.
