Sunshine after the mix of rain and snow! A review of the pretty pumps tomorrow 😉
Review of the week are the lace minis from J.Crew. I had purchased the retail Daisy Lace Mini (I know, short for tall girls) with the intent to adjust it. However, it was too big. As I was cleaning my closet for a trip to the consignment store, I saw the skirt and decided to part ways with it. Then I came across the copycat version in the factory store, the Factory Lace Mini in Scalloped Floral (go figure why such a long name for the exact same thing).
Anyway, both skirts look similar to me, with very subtle differences.
The retail version is a softer cotton, and its lace details are slightly more delicate. The factory version is a brighter white (I would call the retail white as creamy white), and there is a gorgeous poppy red available as well. Bottom line: they look and feel pretty much the same…while the factory skirt is now at half the cost of its retail counterpart…
Pros: gorgeous poppy red, very cute floral details with tulle/organza background
Cons: length…seriously 😦
Fit: True to size, but oh so short!
Material: 100% cotton with polyester tulle/organza at the bottom (underneath the floral details)
Sissi’s verdict: if you can manage the length, check the factory version.
