It was not "supposed" to rain today (I checked the forecast yesterday), so naturally I wore rain boots. :) The weather has just been strange. It's come to remind me of Washington State, where, after a time, you just give up and enjoy the humidity.
J.Crew Eyelet Embroidered Tank, revisited
Wah! I finally saw these in person, and was more than a bit disappointed. I'm still scouting around for office-friendly hot weather tops—and this is not one imo.
In the shop, they had the Ivory and Baltic Blue. No Dusty Blush, but a fourth color not on the website: rich brown-olive, prettier than the other two available shades. Still, a.) It was big...I grabbed my usual size Large and had to go down to Medium. The arm-holes were kinda ginormous and I pictured wearing a camisole beneath it. Not a deal-breaker (who cares, wear a cami) but b.) it just didn't look all that special. The embroidery was a killer concept, but almost cheesily rendered; I had visions of ravelling threads....
