J Crew’s silk posy blouse retails for $98 and is on promo for $78. The colors are ivory, violet stone and (the delectable) shale. It comes in regular (21296 ), petite (23312) and tall (23314). Yay for us all! Ok wait. the violet stone is not on promo. It’s still regular price. This is the type of stuff I’m talking about. Mildly irksome, but we know how much retailers are stepping up their game to lure us in. It’s a competitive marketplace right now and customer loyalty is not nesc a big component. I have ventured into many stores this year that never crossed my mind even though I physically walk by them often.
Size 6P – Customer service got it right w/the measurements and size rec. Nice job.
Given that I am sans a defined waist, I don’t like it tucked into trousers. I didn’t get “the feeling,” unfortunately. Also, I don’t like the shoe string ties at the neck. I would take those off for sure. You don’t need them to keep the collar laying flat. Back to the store it goes…
BTW, I received my skinny patent belt and it’s too small. Their belt sizing is inconsistent. The serengeti belt in size S was loooong. This belt is much shorter. I’m talking inches in difference. I love the cantaloupe color, though, and it’s a great price even before any addt’l discount. I’m happy w/all of my J Crew belts so I’m exchanging it for a M.
Skinny patent-leather belt with square buckle – $14.99 – burnished brown (chocolate) and dusty blossom (pale purple) are also available
