Review: J.Crew Wool Pocket Skirt

The beauty of sample sale shopping…you purchase items you have not seen online, only to find out they are indeed online, though slightly different.

This week’s review is the Wool Pocket Skirt by J.Crew.  Online, the skirt is only available in grey (excuse me, heather carbon that is).  My friend, Mrs MSquared, found this skirt in my size during the sample sale in a gorgeous blue.  It is close to the byzantine blue though the pictures do not really give it justice (I need a better camera).  The color is vibrant and the skirt is very well made.  My review below.

Pros: The A-line figure, the very sturdy wool, the hidden buttons on the front, the subtle lace opening at the front slit, the length (right below my tall knees), the gorgeous blue (I cannot speak for the grey, have not seen it in person)

Cons: The retail price, am so glad I did follow Mrs. MSquared advice on this one… thanks, darling 🙂

Fit: I would say it runs a little big but I would not recommend to size down as it would definitely be too tight for the front buttons.

Material: the exterior is 100% wool.  I believe the lining is polyester.  Also, the lace details must be polyester as well.

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper!!! At the sample sale price, this was a stealer! Thanks Mrs. MSquared!
