J.Crew {Top} Review: J.Crew Swingtime sweater

I really wanted to like this sweater because of the swing out silhouette. I love the relaxed look that the silhouette gives and it’s forgiving nature. I can eat a heavy lunch without having to worry about my belly. When the sweater arrived, I was underwhelmed. I didn’t find it flattering on me (of course, the result is always dependent on the body type – it looked great on the J.Crew models) and the fabric is pilling. This sweater is labeled as dry clean which is another downer. On the plus side, the blush stone color is very pretty.

Please focus your attention on the open crew neck (upper-left side) – it slightly resembles a bacon neck, yeah? I am taking this as a sign of poor quality. Urban Dictionary defines Bacon Neck as the result when a person’s collar ripples, simulating the shape of cooked bacon.

      Thanks! I really appreciate the silhouette because I LOVE STUFFING MYSELF :D The one major downside is the pilling. It’s not the best quality so it’s great that I got it on supersale (with the extra 40% off).

      Speaking of wants, the number one thing on my lust list are the cheetah print items, I need a bib for my drool, haha :)
