From That Other J.Crew Store - Madewell Reviews Part 2.


Spotted Pictureshow Tee

First impressions? It looks and feels like a luxurious little tee shirt. It's also a very good match (at a reasonable price) for the pretty pencil skirts, colorful pants and cardigans from J.Crew for spring. This top is an easy one to style into work and weekend outfits. Measurements on the small (laid flat): chest @ 18", shoulder width @ 14", sweep @ 20".  Material is a cotton/modal back and sleeves with a nice weight silk front that's not too sheer.



Block Stripe Hoodie in sunset koi

First impressions? Great colors! I almost like this combination better than J.Crew's Colorblocked stripe long sleeve tee that I blogged about here. This is a substantial and cozy knit. It's a boxy fit which makes it good for layering over tees, tanks or shirts. The sleeves are on the short side for me on this one. 




Striped Parklane Dress

First impressions? This dress is one of my favorite items from the order. It may be the dress for non-dress wearers - casual but still refined. One caveat, it's silk and lined but still a light color, so nude underwear is required.

Stay tuned for try-ons and styling ideas for these and the other items I blogged about in my last post here.
