This has to be one of my very favorite tops from J Crew. I love the print and love the cut. I had the dress at one point too, but the banding at the waist hit me at an odd spot and made me look a little wonky, so I ended up letting it go. I do so wish they would have made a pencil skirt in this print-- it would have been stunning.
I haven't been loving the prints from J Crew lately. It seems like they've been marketing their prints a lot more recently, but I just haven't been feeling them--especially the pencil skirts. It seems they've done a lot of paisley lately, but they are all starting to look the same to me--nothing special. And the colors aren't fun anymore, just bizarre. I looked at the spring pencil skirt offerings and I thought to myself, I don't currently own a thing that would go with these. But maybe that's the point? J Crew comes out with wonky prints and color schemes on purpose to force us to buy all new tops to go with the wonky prints.
What happened to the lovely pencil skirt prints like the Neapolitan, the Pastiche, or the Ocher Ikat in workable colors?
