This was definitely too young for me. Dang! They had all three Sundrines at my local 'Crew (I went to Emeryville)...mmm...I tried the biggest size on the rack, which was an 8. It fit okay but struck me as ideal for someone under 30. It had a teeny pocket...oh, I'm only going to make myself crazy. :)

Since tees and knits were on sale, I thought I'd scope out more tissue turtlenecks—one of my favorite 'Crew innovations. The light weight makes them work for our changeable don't end up sweating in the afternoon...but the turtleneck and long sleeves provide coverage in the morning, when you're, ah, freezing.

Heirloom Pink was a bit of a disappointment. It's less pink in real life, more a neutral shade too close to my skin color.

Nightfall Blue was more teal than pictured. I'd pondered buying both online, because of the sale, but was glad to see them in person first. I'm not knocking Nightfall Blue; it's quite pretty, just not what I'd had in mind. Heirloom Pink should be pinker.

This was fantastic! In the picture, I'd detected a slight muddy green tone, but in person it was the ideal saffron shade.

This was lovely in person; bluer, and slightly more formal than my other 'Crew plaid shirt:
