Late " Heart"

Looking back to my January wishlist from J. Crew, I have eyed on a few must-have items. One of them is the Silk Boy Shirt in Heart Throb. Even though I love the cute heart pattern on the silk shirt, it was hard to bite at full price.

Waiting and waiting for a decent promotion these days from J. Crew is torture. When everybody was grabbing the shirt for Valentine's Day, it was out of stock a few times, regardless of any promo.

So finally, managed to grab it during the 20% promo or was it 30%, I cannot recall. I was just excited to grab one. Thanks to the detailed reviews of fellow bloggers, I went down a size smaller as it runs big.

Got the shirt today. So happy about the quality and pattern. It's worth every second/minute/hour I have waited for.


Silk boy shirt in heart throb in size 4

I was worried that the size 4 would be too tight. I usually wear a size 4 or 6 for J. Crew shirts. The last shirt I got was the perfect shirt in gingham and it was a 6 and it fits just right. But after reading so many bloggers' review, decided to take the size 4. Ever glad I got the smaller size as it fits just right. 

Beautiful beautiful pattern


Tried it with a black cotton sweater


So glad I waited for a promotion, even though I got it after Valentine's Day, I think I will wear it a lot.

    1. I'm so glad I am able to get it when it popped back. You never know with J. Crew. It may be gone or it may pop back a few months later. So I'm so happy when I saw it pop back and still got the size I want.

  7. Nooooooo! I'm so jealous - this lovely post isn't helping :P I had a J. Crew gift card from my brother for Christmas ($100 buckeroos!) and it was a toss up between a heart throb printed item and the double serge pencil in black (I really need a plain black one....closet staple!). But you look so lovely in it, now I'm wondering if I should start stalking heart throb again :P Oh decisions decisions! Thanks for posting this :) You're totally feeding my shopping obsession.
