J Crew’s Jackie cardigan in stripe with anchor buttons (36106, $72) is now $49.99 online & in-store. The color options are byzantine blue red, navy white and sunwashed pink citrus.
Size M – This the byzantine blue red combo. I used to wear S in Jackies and felt fine in that size while pregnant since I never button them. I usually buy M now to sure I can fit it over a top. I would probly take a M in this.
I forgot to get pics of the anchor buttons so we could admire or snicker. We know about the cheap buttons and zippers retailers are putting on their garments.
Collection silk colorblock top (96631, $198) is now $139.99 online. It was$99.99 in-store on 5/3. This color is sunwashed aqua.
Size 4 – Each time I saw this online, I thought of it as the pockets for your boobs top. The neon pockets just seemed to call attention to the area. Many of the silk pieces are pretty much the same. Not thick at all. I don’t recall it being paper thin, though.
The buttons are hidden under the placket. Kind of a pain to button with the placket in the way.
The sleeves looked cute rolled. There’s no colorblocking at the cuff that is hidden when you roll it.
J Crew wins it for me, if I were buying. I don’t think main body of the F21 option would be good for my skin tone. Although I probly wouldn’t want to keep either of these in the wardrobe forever, the double collar and hi-lo hem on the F21 are too trendy for me.
