J Crew’s sequin stripe tee (33540, $128) runs XXS – XL. The color choices are burgundy and vintage champagne. 100% cotton. ‘Ceptin’ for the sequins, of course (slaps knee). Yesterday, 11/17, I noticed that the top is on promo for $110. The price may go back up to regular price before being cut to a sale price ending in .99. You never know. It could go down to $89.99 on the next adjustment. That’s the Crewniverse.
Size M – vintage champagne – Sizing up was the right instinctive choice for this top. It does create a boxier fit, but the length worked out well.

Size S – I didn’t really care for this color on the hanger or on. Just wanted to be sure to share a pic of it. I guess it could look good with the cafe capri in black. I’m not seeing bright dahlia with these, but maybe a darker color purple on the bottom could work. A tonal purple look would be too much for me personally w/these sequins, but something to consider if you’re into this top & color.
I found the S to be a bit short. The smaller your chest size, the great your chance of getting close to an average length on this top. I do think it runs a little short, though. Remember, I’m 5’2″. Given the short sleeves, I would never put a long-sleeve top under this. So I pulled my cami down to get an idea of what it would look like with a t-shirt peeking out the bottom of it. It didn’t work with the cami and definitely didn’t work in white. Maybe if it were a purple cami…? I’m not really sold on the idea.

Size S vs size M – The size S looks better in the photo than it did on. The size M doesn’t look so great, but I wasn’t into this color at all. Plus I was at the very end of trying things on & over it. Trust me that the M is a better fit. The zigzag sequin top was a tighter fit than this one. And I found it to be less itchy as well.
