Linen boy shirt in diamond ikat (SP14, A2835, $88) runs 00-16. The color is called dark ebony (DEB). 100% linen.
Size 6 – I thought about trying a 4, but I didn’t want to get my feelings hurt so I chose 6. I usually don’t like ikat. I’ve purchased it and not worn it. I really like this black/creme print. It’s not pure white. Sleeve length on the right there. I’m not convinced about the 6. I’m also going to try the 4. However, I’d want it to feel breezy in the summer so I might end up w/the 6 if I get it.
I rarely wear full sleeves, which is why I don’t mind the regular sizes. I always roll as such.
With the pearl cluster necklace (review). I don’t know about pearls and ikat, but it kinda works. If you have the white flower necklace (the 5 big flowers, also came in red), that might also be nice softener.
Collection sequin shorts (HO13, 08699, $198) 100% cotton. Hand wash cold. Reshape and lay flat to dry. I saw these for $129.99 in-store the other day, still regular price online.
Size 8 – I wear 6 or 8P in J Crew pants and 4, 6 or 6P in the skirts. I knew to get an 8 in these 3″ inseam-ers to get them hanging lower on the torso. I don’t miss the departure of khakis being prominent in J. Crew’s offerings but I liked seeing the chino fabric in these shorts.
The sequins are subtle. They’re the kind that flip, which I don’t usually like. However, I think it works for the shorts so they’re not flat out disco. I can’t believe these are Holiday 2013. I would think Spring 2014.
Promo also good in-store. No more 40% off final sale in-stores. It’s now 25%.
