What: Ruffle front chiffon top in vibrant paisley by J.Crew
When: Winter 2016
How (Material): Silk upper with poly lining
- Look: Cute paisley, pink and girly.
- Comfort: OK though you need to size up for arm motion, especially if you’re tall.
- Quality: Good silk chiffon. I like the vibrant paisley.
- Sizing: If you’re tall, size up. I went 2 sizes up to have a decent fit.
Why Not (Cons): The sizing issue.
Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper if you size up. What do you say?

It’s been a rainy week, some of my outfits for the week below. I’ll update links for purchase later tonight. As usual, let me know which you like best!
Update: Links for purchase have been updated!
sweater/boots—top/skirt(old)—top/necklace(old)/skirt(old)/pumps(Cole Haan,old) — skirt(old) — top(old, reviewed by Gigi here)/skirt
The top went on sale in stores and quickly disappeared from my local store…VPS found one for me so here is a review:
Pros: unique print, versatile
Cons: very light silk, no lining so warm weather may not work for this coat…
Fit: TTS but I’d advise to size up for tall girls to limit tightness during motion of shoulders/arms. However, that makes the top big everywhere else
Material: 100% silk
Sissi’s verdict: undecided…the print is nice and the sales OK but the top did not wow me as expected. Considering I already have enough tops, am leaning towards returning this one. What do you think?
Saw some new updates on Friday Dec. 27th 2013. While most look to be a slight variation of previous offerings, I am fond of two new prints: the Misty Fog and the Moonglow Paisley. J.Crew is offering each in dresses, tops and/or shorts (why not skirts 😦 ). I am personally drawn to the tops…See for yourself below. Collection Blouse in Misty Fog
Tee in Moonglow Paisley
Update: Shopping with M has reviewed this tee in her latest post.
Also, while perusing Banana Republic’s website, I came across their floral statement scarf….similar to the Hothouse floral scarf from J.Crew that you can see on Ina. Hmmmm
