Finally some J.Crew Reviews

Sorry for the delay in reviewing my recent J.Crew purchases but I had to return to items for a size smaller (yeah!) and they didn't have my size in the store so then I had to wait for them to be shipped to me. So here it goes...
I'll start with the convertible swing dress in black. I ended up having to get a size smaller (XS). I can't tell if I am losing weight and toning up and that's why I needed a smaller size or J.Crew's sizes are changing. Here is what the dress looks like as a dress. It is very form fitting and there really isn't much support for the "girls." It's light weight and definitely a great dress to travel with. I'm a big fan!

The dress also converts into a skirt (hence convertible dress). You just fold the top part of the dress down and voile you have a skirt. The "waist band" is a little high but as long as you don't wear something too form fitting you will be ok.


The next is my favorite of the purchases - Ateleir Jacket. This is the perfect jacket for spring! It fits true to size and is the perfect fit (not to tight but still has a shape to it). It's on sale right now for $89.99 and you would get 20% off.

And finally we have the dressy jersey ruffle dress. I got it in parsley and paired it with a think gold belt at the empire waist. I saw a lot of bloggers review this dress and not like it. I really like it. I did have to get a size smaller (XS) and don't know the reason (my weight or just J.Crew). I have no problem in the bust area and the body of the dress is loose on my body which I like. Unforunately this dress isn't on sale but I didn't break my don't buy not on sale. I had store credit so it worked out.
