J. Crew Festival Shell Review

So, this is a little late in the game, but this item is still available online in the dreaded "Final Sale" section at JCrew.com and is currently an extra 30% off.

Festival Shell - Size 2 (picture taken about a month ago, so still a little tight!)

With the Madewell Moto Jacket - I really love this top paired with a black jacket/cardigan.  I'm not sure why this top was a spring/summer piece because it totally screams fall to me.

This top fits and feels a lot like the Bazaar Shell - which I did buy and return because I have the dress/tunic in the same print ad the beads were so heavy I just couldn't see wearing it comfortably.  The studs on this shell are still heavy, but not nearly as cumbersome as the Bazaar.

Bottom Line: It's cute and I think I'll wear it a lot this fall since it is pretty forgiving in the tummy area.  Runs TTS.


  1. I agree that the top is very fall in color. I added your link to my massive list of links to irl pics. Glad you tried it.

  2. Hi Lindsey. Thank you for letting me know that you're interested in my 20 for 20 challenge. I would love to have you participate along with me :). As you have probably read, the challenge started this past Friday, and I posted my first outfit. I plan to post this week's outfit on Sunday night. Once you decide on a start day, and have your first outfit post in your blog, just let me know and I will link you. Congrats on your beautiful baby! We have much in common as we are both navigating through marriage and responsibilities of a family.
