Georgia Cardigan - J. Crew

This slightly sheer shawl-collar cardigan adds a look of laid-back luxury to any outfit. Silk/linen in a 14-gauge knit. Fitted. Long sleeves. Rib trim at cuffs and hem. Hits at hip. Import. Hand wash.
was $78.00 select colors $29.99 item 15132

This is a quick post today. I noticed this cardigan was marked down to $29.99 last week, so I ordered it in the warm shell, bistro orange, and navy colors. (OK, I made up those first two color names ... I don't even know if they are right!)
Anyway, the fabric is pretty light and airy, but not thin and flimsy like it's not going to hold its shape. I like the fact that this cardi is a v-neck, which shows off a little more of what you wear underneath (ie. cute tees, etc...) AND the buttons are unique... not just your same 'ole little white plasticy ones! The shaw-collar is a nice change in pace from the Jackie and gives it a more casual look.

**Ended Up With: I bought 3 in XS. I LOVE the orange color, so I know I'm keeping that... but I'm returning the warm shell (there will always be more neutral colored JC cardis down the line, I'm sure!) and I haven't decided on the navy yet.

**Bottom Line: I would get your normal JC cardi size in this style. It's cute, but not worth more than the current sale price.

Do you have this cardi? What do you think? Should I keep the navy, too, or just the orange?


  1. Hi, I have this in the warm shell color and I love it, it goes with a lot of other Jcrew items. I have considered ordering the orange too but didn't pull the trigger (maybe if it goes down to $19.99?) I would definitively keep the orange and the warm shell, those are colors that you can't find anywhere else. You can find another navy cardigan elsewhere (not to mention that you probably have already one in your closet).

  2. I purchased the bistro orange, then the warm shell, and THEN the stone! I fell in love w/ the buttons!!! I think I would have gotten the navy too if I didn't already have a TON of navy cardi's already! :) They do stretch out a bit after you wear 'em though so I sized down on the last 2 that I purchased!
