This is perfection on you! You and others are making it so hard to resist the perfect pencil skirt...

I love that cardigan and the whole outfit looks so beautiful. Btw, did you size down on this skirt?

MMM said...

Cute! I love these *old* pieces mixed w/ *new* ones! ;)

Cute outfit. What color skirt is that?

Simply JCrew said...

TY, everyone!

I give this skirt five stars. The cut IS perfect, the quality of this fabric is just fantastic – thick and yet not bulky at all – you’ll look few lbs lighter. Great execution, JCrew.

Jcmama,
This is size 2. I did size down for most of my pencil skirts last season. My watercolor floral, cocodrillo, eyelet, delfine all are size 2; my dazzling dots, pansy jacquard are 4.

Gigi,
It is dusty blossom – I know… IRL it’s just more like plain beige (or jcrew butterscotch).

Very pretty. What do you think of the other colors?

amy kelinda said...

Cute! You're making me seriously want to acquire all the Juliets!

Cleo26,
I bought all the colors in this skirt and will be buying the latest bright blue color too.
The only color I don’t like is cinnamon. I absolutely love it on JC model but not on me.
I just don’t have this color palette in my wardrobe. I’ve seen some other JCA pairing it with black – it’s not my favorite combo.

Amy Kelinda,
I love heels but I really don’t like “sexy” shoes. Juliet is perfect pump for me.
I wish I discover it earlier – I would buy them in very color.

This outfit is lovely! I also love mixing old and new pieces.

I am curious about sizing too. I WANT a cocodrillo skirt and found one on ebay. Assuming the seller will deal, I have to decide between a 2 and a 6. I normally take a 4. You said you have a 2 - what size are you normally, if you don't mind my asking? Thanks!

I love this skirt. I own the blue, cinnamon and fresh plum. I feel so girlly in them and the cut is better than last years double-serge. I will definitly pick up the dusty blossom color now when it goes on sale! You look gorgeous in it and you top is fabulous as well!

Patina said...

you look beautiful. i think you're going to make me a juliet convert too.

kitsmommy said...

I like this skirt on you. I have the plum, gray and the blue, but the blue might be going back as I just don't quite love it IRL. I adore the gray and plum.

I also have last year's black one and agree with the poster above who said this one fits better. I wore the black last week and the waistband is very thick and always shows through anything over it.

mommydearest,
Normally I wear size 4 in skirts. Some of my skirts from last season were size 2 (see above). My double serge bow pencil skirt is 4 and the latest - rosebud and perfect fit- are both in size 2.
I just checked my Cocodrillo skirt is also 4. Sorry for the confusion.

mommydearest said...

Thanks so much for the size feedback! I think I would need the 4 then too. Thank you for checking!

Wow, it is so great to see that cardigan again!

missmasala said...

Wow...that cardi is so cute. Love the way it looks on you!

I never would have thought to even wear that cardigan

At first glance, it's too prim and grandma for me.. but the whole styling makes it look wearable
