Fitting Room Review: J.Crew #1

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

 I've been spending more time in and of stores lately, taking adventage of the holidays sales to do my window shopping in person. J.Crew and I have not always been the best of friends and honestly, it doesn't seem to have gotten any better. Oh and sorry for the off lighting in these pictures - the spotlights that J.Crew uses in their fitting rooms are notoriously difficult to get a true colored photo in (and let's just not talk about my hair at all, ok? Thanks.).

V-neck sweater in supersoft yarn ($69.50, Size Large)
My Thoughts: I was hoping this sweater would be boxy in a good way, but it is in fact very very bad. Perhaps if you were smaller in the bust area it would fall a bit better, but this was a big no from me. 

Mockneck cable-knit sweater ($89.50, Size Large)
My Thoughts: I'm not sure if this would have worked better a size up (they didn't have an XL in either color) but in my normal size this was just a tad too small. High on my highs and short in the arms, even the sales associate had to admit it wasn't the best fit.

 Ribbed popover ($89.50, Size Medium, Thrifted Pendleton Blazer in a Size 12)
My Thoughts: But despite all that sad news, here we are ending on a high note! I picked this up on a second run through the store (I'm that person who likes to have everything they might like in the fitting room at one time), and while I had to size down to get the right fit, in the end I could see this working for my life/closet. I didn't buy it immediately because I wanted to contemplate the purchase a bit more, but if any of you out there are looking for a square-shaped layering piece with pockets you will never use, I do recommend this one.
