Size 6 – I’d been looking at this on the website, and although the design details are interesting, I wasn’t particularly interested in trying it on. The look was a nice surprise. It’s cute.
A quick note about my photos. My store moved last year and although it’s a brand new store, the lighting is not as good as the previous location. The lighting casts shadows. I don’t know how to Photoshop, so I don’t try to lighten the photos. I always hope that between the stock and my photo, you can get an idea of accuracy.
Size 6 – This fit tts for me. For size reference, I’m 34DD and 5’0″. My torso is more average than short and the blouse length is also taken up by my stomach. Real talk. To state it another way, if my torso were shorter and/or my stomach flattter, I might want the petite because I’d need less length. It’s not likely, though. Even when I weighed less, I tended to prefer regular sizes.
Here’s the reverse. A hidden zipper. Aren’t they so pretty?

J Crew striped t-shirt with pom-poms (SP16, F0088, $55) runs XXX – XL. I was surprised to see that it only comes in one color, called (NNA). 100% cotton exclusion of decoration/trimming. Made in the Philippines.

Size S – Let’s deal with the first potential drawback. That drop shoulder. I actually didn’t mind it. I was going to drop my usual #stripsick disclaimer, reminding you that I’m prone to easily loving stripes.
However, I think why this works is because the pattern shifts from vertical to horizontal at the seam there on the arm. If you look hard enough, you can see a short sleeve tee, with very long gloves. Do you see it?
For size reference, I’m 5’0”, 34DD. I really liked the length, which covers the crotch area. J. Crew’s signature poms add a nice trim. I’m bummed that I didn’t go ahead and get this, but I really don’t need another striped top. I didn’t notice sizes going in it. Perhaps it was snapped up very quickly once it went on sale. I know it went from all sizes available from the time of release and practically overnite it went on sale and out of stock. Drat.
In other news…
I’m bummed that I accidentally deleted irl pics of the mixed gingham sandals with ankle wrap. I tried a 7.5, thinking that the open style might be fine for my foot. I’m usually an 8 in J. Crew pumps and wedges. This was a really, really close fit. The length of the shoes fit exactly. I absolutely don’t like my foot hanging over the sole at the toe or heel in any kind of way, so I returned them. The 8 is on backorder and I’m in line. They are truly beautiful.
