Review: Colection Secretary Silk Blouse in pinstripe

What: Collection secretary blouse in pinstripe by J.Crew


Season: Spring 2015

Material: 100% silk.


Quality: Excellent! Substantial silk, you do not really need to add a cami underneath. Great feel on skin and the tie neck is nicely done.  Loving the color and the subtle pink stripes.

Fit: I would say true to size.  However, this is not available in tall sizes, so I sized up for length. In the combination below and above, I paired it with the pumps from 3 winters back…


Sissi’s verdict: Keeper!! Do you agree? Please share!

Review: silk georgette lace blouse

The blouse was on my watchlist and I could not wait to try on the ‘shell pink’ color.  My review below:

What: Silk georgette lace blouse by J.Crew

Season: Winter 2014

Material: 100% silk

Quality: Good, the silk is soft as expected.  The lace detailings are nice and a feminine touch to the blouse.

Fit: If you are a tall girl, I recommend to size up to get some length of the sleeves,  Otherwise, true-to-size.


Sissi’s verdict: Wait for major sale. It looks like the white color has been a hot item online, I prefer the soft pink (probably because I have enough white silk shirts to justify the purchase of another white blouse). However, as nice as this is, I will wait for another price cut, but that’s just me 🙂

Do you have this blouse? Please share!
