Went 'Crew-diving; was a bit underwhelmed. Oh well. I suppose my wallet can thank me. sighs
J.Crew Chambray Tuxedo Cami in Blissful Blue
This was indeed...blah. Too conservative, perhaps that's what I mean. It just seemed boxy, and the straps appeared a tad too long. The trick with making a chambray tank top would be to render it feminine and cute; otherwise it's, ah, your mama's chambray tank top?
J.Crew Sandstone Linen Swoon Skirt in Natural
This seriously reminded me of a basmati rice bag—a tad thick and slightly stiff, with an obvious weave. Scarlett O'Hara could have fashioned this, had she had a bag of rice on hand rather than curtains. The deep bright blue version fared better (less sack-y because of the color), but I was not overly tempted.
J.Crew Indie Dress in white
Saw this in both the black and white colorways. It was too young for me, but I do think it would look nice on someone in their teens or twenties. The detail was lovely.
J.Crew Alyssa Top in Mauve Morning
I spotted the white version; is mauve of those "online-only" shades?
J.Crew Linen Island Cardigan in Indigo
Now this...mmmmm...the navy blue rather appealed. The other colors were actually quite good—I seldom "want one in every color," but here I can kind of see it. The navy was special from the contrast of delicate sheer linen and deep tone, and navy blue always goes with gold buttons anyway. Could it work, for work? Would it snag?
