This is going to be VERY quick. Baby CW has something...hoarse cough, bad mood, you name it, she is suffering from it. Blegh. I am tired because she is tired (does that make sense)?
But I LOVE this top, so I really wanted you all to see it on someone. I will issue one caveat...I have a small mini-crush on striped tops from J. Crew. I own a red-striped top (short-sleeves), a thin black striped top (long-sleeves), multi-colored striped top (long-sleeves), and a khaki-striped top (turtleneck). So when I saw the vintage bateau top in the new arrivals this month, I kind of knew I would buy it at full-price. Yes, all, it is FULL PRICE love. :) That's commitment. I have already gotten the tiniest stain on it and ripped out the price tag. 'Tis love.
The polyvore shows accurate pieces, except the pants, which are not true. I am wearing ancient J. Crew chinos from four years ago. I really love J. Crew pants, I think they are well-made and last a LONG time.
The shearling chalet boots I got on a popback!!! SCORE! I was ready to go and ebay pay someone for a pair from a clearance center, but nope, only had to pay 80 dollars. YAY! And perfect timing, what with all this awful snow we have had (and will continue to have--10-20 inches forecast for Fri.-Sat.).
Top: Size small. I like it, and think the cotton is sturdy, and not see-through. I think it is cut a bit generous and long, so if you felt comfortable, you could potentially size down. I don't mind this looser cut on me, it isn't so loose that you lose my waist or anything, so that's good. And the color? Camel? GORG. I will be surprised if this doesn't sell out.
Cardigan: Size medium.
Pants: Size 10.
Boots: Size 9. (I sized down one whole size...didn't make a bit of difference. Feels to me the way the old 10s used to feel...I say size down for sure.)
See my model baby there in an old Rex crewcuts vest? Right, so precious...well, take a gander at the next shot (open the photo up for the best effect)...
Heehee, even model babies have to yawn. :^0
Close-up of the bateau top. The necklace is a outlet (I think) item, a mushroom that jingles like a bell when it is swung. The kids LOVE it. :)
Have a nice night. Maybe, with any luck, I can pre-order from BodenPreview.com tomorrow. Play nice, Johnnie!
P.S. I have been terrible commenting back on my last few posts. I will probably not post much tomorrow, instead I will focus on answering comments. :)
