The Kelsey Ruffle Top, $78-$88:
I tried this one on in a size 4 (I'm usually anywhere from a 0 - 4 in J.Crew tops) and it fit pretty well. I probably could have sized down to a 2 and have it fit better, though. Another note: J.Crew needs to steam/iron/whatever their clothing better! Can you see the giant crease in the first picture? Not cool. Also, the ruffles at the neckline were laying all weird, as if they had been smooshed under something for a long time. All in all, this was a pretty top, and I especially like how it looks under a cardigan, but seeing how creased/ill-presented it was, I put it back. You all know I hate ironing, so the last thing I want to do is iron something after I buy it, HAHA!
The Tiered Short, $68:
This little number was just so odd that I had to try it on. Tiered shorts? A no-go for AmyK! This runs SMALL. I tried it on in my usual size 6 bottoms, and while the waist fit perfectly (I know it's hard to see when my cami is bunched up over it like that), the side zip refused to zip. Yes, this one has a side zip, folks. Not a fan. But again, the curse of the Generous Bum strikes again! I'm not too upset, though. I'm not digging the pleats on the shorts anyway, which just look plain odd in my opinion. I tried sizing up but in an 8, the waist was too loose and the overall look didn't improve.
Unknown dress in the "Rose Vines" print (seen here), in-store only?
I can't find this dress online and unfortunately didn't take note of the SKU number, but I'm sure your B&M store will have it. It's a light cotton dress in the "Rose Vines" print (which is a lot darker IRL than I imagined) with some tiered details at the bodice. It's a back-zip dress. Out of everything I tried on that day, I liked this one the most, though I still wasn't tempted to buy. It's airy and comfortable, which will make it a nice summer dress, but I don't fill out the strapless top enough. With strapless numbers, I need the bust to be stiffer or snugger so that I don't have to worry about it traveling South during the day, and this one was neither stiff nor snug. It'd probably be really cute on bustier ladies, though!
