{JCrew corsage tee: color review}

I think many of the JCA's have agreed that the Corsage Tee is a keeper.  
It has a very flattering fit, nice detail, and great price.  I have been dying over here for a little color (...so much gray and beige this season--I am over it!--it's SPRING after all!!) so I ordered it in the Amethyst and Breeze colors.  I was a little worried because I had heard the "Amethyst" described as an ugly Post-it purple color, then today I actually saw it in this horrible color in my B & M!!  They were right--the shade that made it to some stores WAS pretty bad.  Fortunately my top showed up at my doorstep in the pretty pale lavender that is portrayed online.  I love it, and am wearing it here with my white Gap straight fit chinos.  I am also happy with the "Breeze" pale aqua color.  I wish J Crew would bring us a little more color for Spring and Summer!

Below are the Breeze tee and the Vintage Slim Jean in Antique Destroyed Wash.  The jeans went promptly back to the store.  I decide that they were too baggy and too trendy for me and couldn't find a pair of shoes that looked good with them (hence the photo-editing).  :)

jcbellemarie said...

lol, that was my post-it take on the store color...but this looks totally different! it is really pretty on you!! So I'm not going crazy (I was thinking the store lighting was really bad or something because the two shades of purple looked totally different to me)!

I love those tees on you! Yeah, the jeans run large. I left the store without a pair even though I liked them quite a bit.

Great review! You look gorgeous and classy, as always. What on earth is going on with all of the beige this season, especially from the Crew? I'm over it too! Give me some pretty colors!

Heather said...

I love the new purple shirt!

kirbydog said...

Go back and buy those jeans asap!!!!! They look great on you, plus the tees are wonderful too.

GingerSnap said...

I love the lavender color on you! I know what you mean though about J.Crew and their immediate NEED for MORE color. I am hoping summer will bring something a little less muted. I have seen some dark oranges coming out in their new arrivals...so maybe that's a sign. :)

I agree with your thoughts on the vintage slim. They are way to baggy and saggy for me! Especially with the name "vintage slim." But I love the white and purple on you! Great color combo!
