J.Crew Metallic Beach: Tons of IRL Pics
I wore this outfit into my B&M the other day and got several compliments .... I love the gold with this shirt!
SIZE: I purchased the XS and it fits TTS to a little large for JC. A Small would definitely be too big, as I'm still able to button the XS 19 weeks pregnant!
MATERIAL: It's not super itchy and it's not the most comfy either. It might have been in my head, but the gold seemed a bit less itchy and rough than the silver. Who knows. The metallic is definitely more comfortable to me than some winter sweaters with odd animal hair in them! Jewelry is this sweater's enemy! Seriously! I'm not talking gaping holes or anything, but I've already cut 2 or 3 loose golden strands off the sleeves ... it's doesn't affect the look though. Just beware.
LOOK: I loved each color equally, but seemed to be able to create more outfits with the gold, so that's the one I'm keeping for now. I can see throwing this on with anything just about all year long. I completely plan on bringing it with my on our trip to LA later this month... it goes with everything, so it's a good piece to bring!
PRICE: $128 is a bit steep in my opinion considering it's not cashmere or something. You're paying for the uniqueness of the product here. I got mine for $102 and I am OKAY with that ..... $80 would make me happier! I will buy the silver if it goes $80 or below.
