J Crew’s three-quarter sleeved beaded top (34806, $118) is on sale in-store & online for $89.99.It runs XXS – XL and the color is called navy antique white NAW.
Size S – The size S fit exactly. Nope, I’m still not pregnant. Just exerciseless. A far as the top, it’s not forgiving at all. The material is a basic t-shirt. Not on the thicker side like some of the stripe tops we’ve seen. It’s just a regular t-shirt.
There is no stretch on the beading portion of this top. It has a similar fit issue as the Fair Isle ski sweater (review). The cotton t-shirt portion would stretch a little, but the beaded bands don’t stretch. This could be a problem toward the hem, depending on your hip shape. You might not be able to get the top all the way down. The beading is cold on the skin, from what I recall, which isn’t fun. Of course it warms up as you wear it. I have on the classic pavé link bracelet ($125), which I love & highly recommend.
The beading goes all the way around the top, but is on the torso only. The stripes on the torso are silver, due to the beading. The stripes on the sleeves are white. It looked a little odd to me, but I’m sure someone will look good in it.
Thanks for visiting 🙂
