Apologies for absence and another very short post. Still no Internet chez nous.
It is particularly annoying that just as I got a splendid new laptop, our Internet went on an extended holiday…
So, a very quick review of the J Crew Soft Pencil skirt in Rosewood.
I ordered this with an extra 30% off the sale price, so it ended up being around $69 AUS.
As mentioned by other reviewers, it’s polyester (I was very worried about this), but it’s actually a quite pleasant, drapey fabric. Much better than I expected! I wouldn’t wear this in our humid summer, but it’s perfect for our Autumn and early winter.
I got the smallest size, 00. I almost always wear a P00 in J Crew, being petite, but this particular style didn’t come in petite sizes. It is a touch too big in the hips and waist. I could probably get it taken in an inch or so, but I’m thinking of leaving it this size so that I can layer tights and a thermal vest under it… we will see. I may well end up at the tailor.
The length is also a touch on the longer side, but again, with long boots in winter I think it will work better this length than above the knee.
Excuse the dark and unclear pic. Worn here with a J Crew navy cotton sweater and APC bronze sandals.
What do you think?
Hope you've had/are having a good weekend.
Please send fast Internet vibes our way....
