Show of hands...how many people had their J Crew Sweeping Ruffles Shirt (#22852, $98, and I have no idea why it's still full price) on back order? And waited and waited? Only to be utterly disappointed when they got it? According to my SA, a LOT of these have been returned to the store in the past week or so, so I'm guessing you all feel the same way as I do about it.
Here's the online pic...How cute. The floaty ruffles....love it.
and let's not forget.....
Ok, seriously. The full scoop. Maybe it's just awful on me because I really don't have much in the way of curves (drewablank and I were talking about it earlier this week so I hope hers worked when it arrived). And maybe it loses something when it's been folded flat in a package as opposed to being steamed into floaty loveliness in store. I got a Medium.
The good: It fit fine in the shoulders (thank you, J Crew!) I really liked the length. And I still like my new hair cut (more on that in an upcoming post).
The bad: all those flaps of fabric hanging off the shirt. I felt like a laundry line. Seriously. It's wash day, woo hoo! A hot mess on me. And I try not to overuse that term, but oh, it seriously applied here. And it was MUCH more sheer than the online pic would lead you to believe. And, for us lazybones, who wants to iron this sucker? "Not it."
Bottom line: Not even on sale, honey. Or maybe my Polyvore will tell you how I really feel....
ps - props to Chris of A Little "Crew"zy, who called this as a major miss back in January. You were right, Chris, but at least I didn't pay for shipping!
