J.Crew Recent Returns - In-Store only?
I have purchased and returned a lot recently, so I'm beginning with the losers first....
White Cotton Button-Down Shirt/Blouse (I cannot find this online)
This also comes in a grayish/purple color in store, as well. It's pretty see-through and runs a bit small. This is a size Small. I ended up returning it because it was gaping a little at the bust, and I have a linen shirt I bought last year that looks almost the same as this one.
The one thing I did love about the shirt is that it's stretchy and fits nicely under sweaters, etc... without riding up. But, again, I just don't think I'd get that much use out of it. Additionally, I had a bad feeling about those pesky little holes popping up - don't know why exactly, just something about the fabric seemed delicate.
Vintage V-Neck Tee (don't see this online, either)
I thought I loved this at first - I love the solid colored vintage tees - but this is thicker and more stiff... I also had to size up to a Small to like the fit of it. In fact, now that I am writing this, I wonder if it really even is a vintage v-neck tee, or was it just on the same round table as all the other vintage v-necks? Anyway, I'm all striped-out unless it's a show-stopper, so this went back, too!
Next post - the keepers! :)
