|Navy Tweed Jacket|
My sister popped by her local J. Crew store this week and she came away with some reviews for us, as well as a couple of items that she loved.
I'm always interested in Carolina's perspective as she is very petite: 4'10" and small-boned. It is difficult for her to find clothes that fit her properly without massive amounts of tailoring.
She initially approached the store trip with the intent of buying the jacket, above. It was not to be. Her thoughts:
"The navy tweed jacket had promise and the 0 fit me well even in the sleeve but the interior large hook and eye closures do not hold for one second even with the garment off, and with it on I felt like I was wearing someone else's jacket. "

|The elephant bracelet was way too big for Carolina.|
"There are two jewelry items I thought were great. One is a row of oval, deep blue synthetic gemstones set in a dark gold-tone. Simple but would be very elegant, I am keeping that one in mind as it was made shorter than the rest. In person I like the medium blue with white stone patterned bracelet (sort of a feathery chevron pattern, very 60s costume)."

Carolina found the fit great even though her wrists are tiny.

Carolina thought it was swell!
