J. Crew rollout change room reviews

After I saw the fall rollout from J. Crew last week, I made a wishlist(see post here). Went to J. Crew and happy to see most of the items on my list are in store so I could try them on.

My first must-have item on my list is the peter pan collar tee. It is more than a tee to me. Much more substantial fabric. Maybe can justify it is pricier than their usual tee.


Peter Pan collar tee(sim here)

This is my first choice of color, with cream collar on grey. Currently this color is sold out online and only have the black collar on blue available.


This is a size S and I like how it fits everywhere but the length. I prefer a bit longer. So I guess if I decide to get it, will have to size up to a M. The other thing which bothers me is the back zipper. Why do they make it like that? My hair is past shoulder length and is always caught in the zipper which drives me nuts. 


another version of Peter Pan collar knit top( I don't see it online, anyone?)

This is a burgundy top with a cream colored collar. The fabric is probably a linen/cotton mix. This is also a size S and I like this length on me better.


Forgot to take a picture of the price tag with the product code.





The back doesn't have a zipper. Only a button which suits me better.


Tippi sweater in polka dot size S (buy here)

Love tippi and this one does not disappoint me. Like the 3/4 sleeve length which is perfect for fall and still wearable for cool summer nights.


Love the asymmetric location of the dots. Makes it much more appealing than the Old Navy version.


French hen sweater (buy here)

Feel like you either love or hate the hen sweater. There is no in-between feelings. To me, it is a cute and fun sweater but I would have to say pass. This is a size S and it feels very tight on the arms. Also the fabric is very rough and very itchy on my skin.


Tippi cardigan in colorblock (buy here)

This Tippi is a bit thicker than the other tippi cardigans. The Yorkdale store is out of the size S so I grabbed a M to try on and think it is a bit big on me. 


Multistripe doman sleeve tee(buy here)

The sale section is quite big but nothing too interesting. I grabbed this dolman tee to try on. But think the sale online is better deal(currently they have a 30% off sale items online, using code LOVEIT)


Waverly chino 

This is a size 2 and there were only a size 0 and 2 left at the sale racks. I tried the size 2 on and I could squeeze into them but the waistline was a bit tight. But at $24.99, hard to resist. Good that I checked with the sales associate and he was able to find a size 4 for me in the stock room and came home with me.


This is what I wore today: Crochet lace front tee in size S, No. 2 pencil skirt in deck stripe in size 4

Really loving my No. 2 pencil skirt in deck stripe. I love how the fabric stretch a bit and does not need any ironing, unlike other No. 2 pencil skirts. I was contemplating in getting the new wool No. 2 pencil skirts but the colors don't wow me. And I have heard from other bloggers that this season's skirts are not as nice as previous seasons as quality of the fabric is lower.

    1. thank you, very sweet of you Rynetta! I now truly understand why the No. 2 pencil skirt receives so much rave about it. I'm late in joining the No. 2 pencil skirt fan club !

  2. That is odd that they would put a zipper on the back of the gray shirt but a button on the back of the burgundy! Cute tops though :)

    1. the gray one is more of a thick cotton tee fabric and the burgundy one is of a knit fabric. I much prefer the button instead of the zipper at the back. Hoping for the burgundy one to be available online soon!

    1. same here, as soon as I see the sale on the tippi with dots, I'm grabbing it. As weird as it sounds, but stalking on the J. Crew website has been very exciting and also rewarding for me. Especially when you're longing for an item and it went on sale and it suddenly popback and in your size. It's a great feeling! Enjoy!

    1. As much as I like the tippi dot, I don't think I will get it at full price. Totally over-priced. Thank you :)

  8. The Peter Pan tee looked cheap to me and definitely not worth more than $20, IMO. The burgundy top with the similar collar is a wool/alpaca sweater and it is not online yet.

    1. I think the Peter Pan tee is cute but not cute enough for me to pay that much. And the zipper at the back really bothers me. I am hoping the burgundy one will pop online soon!
