J Crew’s gingham stripe popover (02795, $88) runs 00-16. The color is called indigo multi (IMU).
Size 6 – I’ve had this in my wishlist since it debuted online. I almost ordered it and realized I should try it on at the store to be sure. I’ve seen it a couple times, but never reached up to grab it. When I got up close it looked pretty standard in size and the 6 fit as I expected it to.
I’m not a huge gingham fan on me, personally, but I like the look of it. Check it out on Shop With M.
I’m way too stripesick to be imrpessed by the faint lines at the bottom. A faded stripe was probably the best way to not clash and let the gingham shine. However, it’s soooo faint. And the gingham was too small for my taste. A smidge bigger would’ve been better. Another issue about the not-really-stripes bottom is that it wasn’t slimming. I didn’t feel like I looked bigger, but I know that block of lighter color wasn’t flattering me either.
Each time I saw the top online, I envisioned a statement necklace. This is J Crew’s crystal collage necklace (sold out). I liked the look of it. I think a navy schoolboy would look nice over it all.
