Hi! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted but here I am again with some of the latest J.Crew new arrivals. I’ve been a bit busy cleaning out my closet and attempting to donate/sell items that don’t fit me any longer. I never thought I’d be at the point where I was faced with not fitting in to 75% of the things in my closet but…here I am. More on that in another blog post. My local J.Crew had a new arrival event on Saturday trying on clothes was the perfect way to spend a snowy Saturday morning. I also had the pleasure of meeting a few very sweet ladies in the dressing room who follow me on Instagram and read the blog so that was pretty fun too. It’s not the first time I’ve had that happen to me but when it does happen, it’s always a little surreal but also flattering. And I love chatting J.Crew with others who love it as much as I do!
So, enough of my rambling and onward to some try-ons.
First up, the Sheath Dress in Polka Dot Textured Tweed
Shoes: Suede Colette D’Orsay Heels
This was an absolute love. There’s a matching jacket which my store didn’t have and there’s also a pencil skirt in the same style which I also didn’t have the opportunity to try on. I tried both the 10 and the 8 in this dress and probably could have done either – the 10 was a bit loose so this is the 8. It’s perfect on top but it’s just a smidge tight in the skirt area so I’d say if you’re curvy go with your larger size. This is at the top of my wishlist. As soon as those temps get a little bit warmer it will be mine. The material is textured but the dots themselves are a solid fabric. This dress is why I keep coming back to J.Crew!
