J Crew perfect shirt in foil dot (HO15, $79.50) runs regular 000-16 (E4327), petite P00 – P12 (E5016) and tall T2 – T16 (E6026). Color choices are ivory dark gold (IDG) and navy silver (NSI)
Size 8 – ivory dark gold – I recently learned that I need an 8 in the perfect shirt. I swear it’s gotten smaller. I’ve seen this a few times and resisted trying it on because I buy dots and don’t wear them. I finally had a little time to spare yesterday. You know I will try on anything I can to be able to share a review. I didn’t realize how much I would like it. For size reference I’m 5’0″ and 34DD.
I’ve been saying how much I love the Loft’s moto skinny ankle cords (size 6/28). They’re currently on sale + 50% off, no code needed. I try to make a point to wear these everyday now, instead of jeans.
Regarding fit. If I lost that slack at the front ankle by wearing an 8P/29, that would be fine with me. It doesn’t bother me as-is in the regular size, but I wouldn’t mind it a little bit more fitted and shorter at the ankle. I’m wearing the grey color.
The metallic dots are beautiful. They’re sparkly gold. The navy (not pictured) is more striking with the metallic silver dots on the dark fabric. Both options easily look holiday appropriate. They also have the capability of a year-round top, particularly the ivory.
You don’t have to be an expert at layers to make this look good. This is a personal like for me, btw.
