I saw those pretty sleeves and hit the “Buy” button! Review below. In case you wonder, the skirt and shoes I have on are J.Crew oldies. There’s an updated version of the houndstooth skirt that I will review next week, stay tuned!
What: Collection secretary blouse in pinstripe by J.Crew
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!
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!
