Embroidered-Front Tee. Size Extra-Small. This top is currently almost sold out, barring a size extra-small in the navy/burgundy shade. (I am in the light grey/ivory version.)
I thought this was a very pretty top when it debuted whenever (maybe two months ago?) and put it on my (teeny tiny) J. Crew wishlist. Since my J. Crew wishlist is so miniscule, I can actually now afford to budget for the two-three items I am interested in per season.
When this tee went on sale, and there was a decent promo going on, I bit, and was more than happy with the $45 I paid for it. I don't know that I would have spent the entire $63 full price, but the extra bit of savings made me feel like I hadn't been swindled by the Crew.
I think the potential for snags in the embroidery is there, so I would caution you to wear the tee when doing less physical activities. I definitely would not wear this while toting Angus in the Ergo, for instance.
Anyhow, it was super comfortable, very pretty, and I think true to size (I typically wear a size xs in J. Crew's knits/tees).
BTW, that is the Tartine Satchel and I did buy the grey version after having bought the ivory version over the summer (again, I got this purse on a pretty decent discount, something like half off, I think I hit the sale/promo at exactly. the. right. moment.). Anyhow, I highly recommend the pebbled version, and have worn it non-stop for the past two months. My review is exactly the same as for the ivory over the summer, but I would say the pebbled version is proving to be very hard-wearing, so I recommend the pebbled version especially for anyone with a very active lifestyle (read: lots and lots of children).
Funny Birds Tee. Size Extra Small. I love the mid-century modern styling of these birds on the front of the tee. I didn't wait for this tee to go on sale, I just bought it with a 25% off the first day it came out (I wanted the free shipping they offered that day). I see that it is fully stocked, so if you want it, but want a better price (I paid around $35), I think you could probably wait.
I could have bought the size small for a bit more of a loose fit (like the way the model in the catalog is wearing hers), but I am not exactly disappointed in the fit, I think it works for me the way I wear tees, so I won't be returning to size up.
Anyhow, this tee is very nicely made, with a soft feel, and interesting seam detailing (the shoulder lines are a bit dropped). I didn't grab a photo of me in this with just the tee on (it was COLD that morning), but I have plans to wear it again and soon, so I should get a photo of it on its own soon enough.
Okay, that's it from me for tonight.
I should be back tomorrow with something, I hope. I can't count on anything these days since my littlest man seems to be in the habit of midnight freak-outs/crying jags, and I won't lie, I am just a bit tired. ;-)
