I had a chance to pop into the Crew today and try on a bunch of the new rollout. I was really happy with a number of the new pieces. Here are some pics!
Katie Colorblock and Eyelet Camis -- These were cute, but they weren't super wow for me. The colors for the colorblock cami were pretty muted and not uber-flattering on me. The eyelet was really pretty. I like the shape of both, although did feel pretty exposed. I can't tell if that's just b/c it's winter and it takes me a while to remember how it feels to not wear 100 layers? These were a size 2, which felt right to me. Bonus, bra strap holders!
Gingham Vintage Schoolboy Shirt -- Oh, loved this in the melon. Adorable. The blue was almost a light gray, so not a good color for me. I can't remember if I took a 2 or 4, but am thinking I did a 4?
Perfect Shirt in Schoolboy Madras -- Hello, cute! Totally old-school preppy, JC brought back the plaid in really nice earth tones. Pricey alas, at $89.50. This is a 4, and sorry, it's over the colorblock cami, but it fits TTS.
Madras popover -- I liked this online, but loved it in person. The colors are bright and beautiful. Nice and light and easily can be worn through summer. My PS said it seemed to run small in the shoulders, so I went with a small in this one and it was a great fit.
Tea-stained Dobby Dress -- Love!! So, so cute. Coral-y modern red-ish dots on a deep ivory. Cotton, pullover, no zip. I took an XS. There is an XXS available. Somewhat loose at the neckline, but not enough for me to size down. This is a perfect dress for anything -- running errands, dinner out, whatever! I belive it was priced at $88.
Amory Floral Castaway dress -- Such a great thow-on-and-go dress! A substantial cottony knit (didn't look at material) in ivory with a pretty coral floral print. Nice pockets. This one ran big in the armholes, so I went from this 2 (shown) to a 0 and it was perfect. Hits at a nice place -- not too short, hooray! The PS and I were thrilled to see a bit more length on skirts/dresses.
ETA: They have a Factory version that is very similar. When I was there it was priced at $70.
Stripe Lace-up Tee -- This was just ok for me. Maybe I'm on stripe overload, haha. This was an XS and what I'd take in it. They didn't have the pink version in store.
Cecilia Dress -- Rats, this one was a total bust for me. Way too long for me, hitting well below my knees, and just too much volume. Overwhelmed me for sure. Loved the orange color. I sized up in it to a 4 and the top felt perfect. So runs a touch small.
Amie Maxi Dress -- I had to try this one on, b/c it looks so effortless. Super cute on, and the XS fit perfectly. And pockets! The issue...the material is so thin, there is no avoiding VPL. We talked about possibly doing a slip, but both agreed that just defeats the purpose of easy summer dressing. But darn, it's cute. What do you guys do for that situtation? And it hit a PERFECT length on me (5'5") for flat sandals.
Crinkled Silk Caspia Dress -- Very pretty print, and I liked how it fit, although I can see that waist possibly being an issue for some. It looked cuter IRL than in this pic, now that I look at it. I tried a size 2 and it fit TTS for me. It's an effortless dress once again, and I liked the length. Would be appropriate for a dinner out in the summer, but since it's silk, not so much for regular day wear.
Jenny Dress -- Gorgeous color, loved. Another easy toss-on dress, and is definitely sale wishlisted. Way too pricey at $78.
Paisley pencil skirt -- Very cute little pencil skirt! Fit is TTS. I have the orange and cream pencil skirt from a year or two ago, so this is a pass for me, but it's really nice. Weightier cotton, which I like. I believe it was $118.
Madras bermuda shorts -- I went with my usual shorts size for JC, size 4, and they fit perfectly. I didn't expect to like these at all on me, but I weirdly did, a lot! Instead of looking like a grandpa, they were super cute. Not for $64.50, but if they go to sale, they're wishlisted.
Big Daddy tee (above) -- This was in the sale section for $15, and since it had the orange (coral? modern red?) and navy, a fab combo, I tried it on as well. Cute.
