My smallish haul from J. Crew was just dispatched today (I placed the order on Saturday) and while J.Crew was kind enough to apply the 20% off code (and FS over $100) to my order retroactively, my interest in my still-in-transit package is quickly losing steam. Why? because of this skirt that I just received.

I simply LOVE this pattern, honestly my favorite from J. Crew in a very long while but I hate their size inflation. I bought this in a size 00, thinking that I might only barely fit it. Turns out even I was sized out by this skirt.

Not a mini on me at all. So much for the Canterbury Bell MINI skirt. And just for laughs and giggles I decided to pull this skirt up as high as I can…there, mini skirt. J. Crew, take note!

AudreyBella of Life is Short…Buy the Shoes (love her blog name) also reviewed this skirt and it’s also painfully long on her…she looks pretty tall in her pictures so I think J. Crew dropped the ball here. 

And since J. Crew’s adult line doesn’t love my height, I thought I’d give Crewcuts a try since they are offering free shipping on any order. I ordered the Canterbury Lila dress in Pearl. I figured if it’s too short I’ll just wear it like a tunic, no big loss. Plus, this print is SO beautiful and photographs really well.

Reviews on these coming soon: stretch double-serge pencil skirt in 00; chambray school blazer in 0p (similar NL on super sale!); Rose Vines blazer in 0
