J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs!}

This is the weekly "J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs}" post, to help each other share our reviews.

So if you have recently purchased, or stopped by a J.Crew store to try on an item (or two) from J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Also, this request is not just limited to clothes. Please feel free to discuss bags, shoes, jewelry, accessories, etc.

In particular, if you could mention a few of the noteworthy details like fit, size, fabric, and the like— that would be fantastic! Thanks in advance! :)


  1. Review here of the boy shirt in brushstroke. There wasn't much difference between the 4 & 6 that I'd try, but I'd get the 6.

  2. A review of the faux-wrap tulip skirt here. Very cute in theory but the execution was off on this one :/

    1. Thank you....what a fab. detailed review of an item I have been dying to hear about..... Carolyn

  5. Just got the Collection Embellished Tux Pant in the mail yesterday....wearing it today! Really beautiful. Sizing is just on the large end of TTS.

    I love that this pant offers me an elevated version of the same outfits I've been making with J Crew's more casual drapey pants so far this summer.

  6. Yesterday I received the ankle strap espadrille in white. Took one shoe out to try it on and noticed the very thin slice of leather glued to the man made backing on the strap had come completely unglued all over the strap. Quality Control asleep at the wheel....again. And so the vicious cycle continues. Stupid me!

  7. received the cotton shirtdress in Navy (tall) I am 5'5". If you like the sleeves....the tall was good.not too short.but I dislike those sleeves to no end. Someone referenced Judy Jetson. J Crew is now blowing/missing even the basics...

  8. Just received...

    the Striped linen pull-on bermuda short (C4088) - Nice lightweight stripe linen. It does not run TTS. You can probably size down from your usual size. I could've ordered a size 00, but the short is sold-out when I started obsessing over it, but was lucky to order a size 0 on pop-back. I'm 4'11, and the length falls above my knees. Got it with the 30% off promo. It's a keeper.
