J. Crew Polka Dot Popover Review

Got the polka dot popover from J. Crew a little while ago but still haven't got around to wear it yet. It has been either really warm or cool enough that I couldn't wear it.

It is a nice silk. Not the very thick silk as the Heart-throb boyshirt. Some people say they don't like about its sheerness. But I find it acceptable as it is black and not a light base color.

However, I find the fit a little strange. I am usually between a size 4 or 6 for J. Crew shirts. I took a bigger size of 6 for this one. It fits nice but I find it a little wee tight around the armpits, i.e. it would be hard to lift your arms up high when I'm wearing this shirt. Also, the back is a little longer than the front which I don't have a problem with. I think it would be great to pair with skinny jeans to hid the behind :)

I got this before the non-stop J. Crew promo in the past 2 weeks. So if you are obsessed with polka dots, don't let this shirt get away. There is a 30% off final sale items (use promo code: MUSTHAVE) and this top is not on final sale. I know a lot of people won't buy items on final sale, thinking it is a gamble on items which they haven't tried on before.

    1. I feel the same way. This has been out for a while and surprisingly not many reviews out there. Good that I picked a size up and it fits. I love the white blouse with black dots too. Maybe it will pop back one of these days.

    1. I think I have heard it somewhere that the store on Robson St. is going to have a grand opening next week. (I went to school in Vancouver for a few years back). Check it out. Think it is going to be a women and men's store.

      thanks for dropping by :)

  11. Love polka dots, they are always flattering and fun to wear :) But it's a tad annoying when things fit tightly in odd places - I need to move my arms up :p
