J.Crew Gimlet Skirt in Harvest Tweed Review
I'm wearing a size 2 here. I've been sizing down to a zero in most bottoms this year, but the 2 fits well in this skirt and I would not want a 0.
While this isn't the most flattering, slimming style, considering the thickness of the fabric, I'm happy with the look. The length is perfect for me... not too frumpy, but definitely conservative enough for me to wear this for any occasion... or any occasion that occurs in my life!
From the back.... what can you say?
I did get the Silk Blythe blouse in the neon azalea, which looks amazing with this.... why no pictures? I have no idea... it's happening soon!
I went with the Gimlet skirt instead of the pencil because I thought it would be more fun, there are pockets!, and it's just different in general. This is still a 50/50 keeper for me - I got it for about $100 with the 25% off promo.... maybe I'll see if it goes on sale for cheaper in the next month or so!?
Bottom Line: Cute and different and you'll be able to wear just about ANY color on top with it! Runs TTS (a little smaller maybe than other skirts/pants this year?! Could just be me....) Pricey, but cheaper than than the pencil version. I LOVE this pink and browns!
