New J.Crew Items: Part II (tissue tier tanks, flower art tee, canvas tote)

Part II of the new J.Crew Spring roll-out items that I purchased is a little late in posting, but here it goes...

Tissue Tier Tanks: $39.50
Comes in light pewter, white, sweet guava

This is sweet guava in a Small.  I tried a Medium for longevity, but the neckline plunged and hung off of me to the point where I would never be able to fill it out or make it work.  Runs TTS but might be a little too low cut for ladies with a lot going on up top. (aka: not me!)

This is the white with a Melon colored cardi over it from last year.  Not sure I'm going to keep the white since I won't be able to wear it much longer (not until August at least) and $39 is a lot for a tan top!  These colors just make me happy together .... it's almost like an instant spray tan.... very flattering!

Hand-Cut Flower Art Tee: $45
Comes in light ginger, white, dark chartreuse

This is a size Medium.  Normally I would buy a Small.  This runs TTS to a little large.  The fabric is way more forgiving than painter, tissue, or favorite tees.  I have the sweet guava tank underneath here... not sure I'd actually wear it this way.  My PS also recommended putting the Vintage V-Tee in Moroccan Spice underneath.... it looks good that way, too but I didn't snap a pic.

Notice how this Melon colored cardi from last year makes the stitching on the flowers pop? Love it!

Canvas Tote: $10
Not online yet that I can find.
I just loved the idea of having a reusable bag with my favorite store on it! Actually, JC's paper shopping bags are super nice, but if that nasty rumor about the shopping bags becoming crappier ends up being true, thes canvas bags will have to be our fall-back! I can see using this for just about anything from a beach bag to the gym... and of course, as a shopping bag! I consider this my "returning-online-purchases" JC bag!

Lot's more to come soon!  Thanks for stopping by!
