I stopped by J.Crew Factory to make a few returns yesterday and thought I would share two reviews of items that I liked. For fit reference, I'm 5' 4", 32C-26-34. My usual size at J.Crew Factory is 00 and XXS.
Sateen V-Neck Dress in Floral (C3327)
Authentic Navy 0
Verdict: Like, but size up. Also the v-neck is quite low.
Denim Jacket (02661)
Antique Sanded Blue XXS
Recently I've been casually looking for a light blue denim jacket. I think it would be the perfect layering piece to wear over dresses during the summer when all of the buildings on campus are blasting their air conditioning. I had a very old Aeropostale one that I never ever wore, because the denim was extremely stiff. It was impossible for me to roll up my sleeves, and the fit wasn't quite right either - very boxy and short. I actually really like this rendition from J.Crew Factory. It has some small distressed details, but they don't bother me. The blue wash reads light blue with yellow undertones and would pair well with dark bottoms, which is what I mostly wear. The fit is true to size. I took my usual XXS, and it's fitted without being tight when buttoned. Unbuttoned it's slim without appearing boxy. The sleeves are a hair long, but I usually roll them up anyway. My favorite feature is that the denim is quite soft. The material is medium weight yet comfortable, instead of stiff like many other denim jackets I've tried. Anyway, this is definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a light blue denim jacket.
Verdict: Like, true to size. Note the distressed details.
