J.Crew Stripe Sweater-Skirt Review + THE Shirt

Stripe sweater-skirt
item# 66382
When I saw this online, I HAD to try it.... even though I knew it was going to be clingy and I wasn't going to like all the personal 'details' you could see through it ... but anyway...

Wearing a size Small here .... I ordered up a size from my normal and I don't think I would like the XS.  The waist is definitely loose-ish, but not too big.

The colors are gorgeous together, but I can't really decide if this would work all the way through Spring because it's not a 'wooly' feeling sweater, but more of a silky, cool hand-feel sweater material... and the lighter color is more of a tan than a white.  But, you wouldn't really want to put tights under it, so I think I'm questioning how much and WHEN I would wear this.

This is how I made the decision to send this one back.... NOT a fan of the backside view.

This is not a keeper for me at full price .... I might re-visit it on sale AND if I can figure out a way I would wear it a lot, which I could then just plan on wearing some butt-slimming Spanx underneath!  I do think this would be adorable with some red shoes or handbag... but then you have to avoid looking like an American Flag....

As for the white button-down shirt, I am so excited to have found "The Shirt" as featured on Oprah.  This shirt doesn't gape or pucker at the bust thanks to some extra hidden buttons in just the right places!  Check it out {here}  I'm wearing the Skinny Shirt in a Small, for size references.  Especially for those larger busted ladies, or ladies wanting to maintain modesty in the workplace, this shirt is a must!
