You know how I know an internet order is a keeper? When I take it out of the bag and instantly cannot wait to wear it. That's how I felt about J.Crew's bow blouse in electric plaid. I knew I loved it after seeing Gigi's helpful review, but I hadn't seen it in person myself so I felt I was kind of taking a risk by ordering it. It was a good risk, because I absolutely love everything about it, the colors, the shape, and the nice silk material. When I first put this outfit on, I thought, now this is pretty bright, even for moi...but it turns out it was a big hit all day, and I received compliments everywhere. Doesn't that make you feel awesome? Everytime I receive a compliment, I make it a point to pass one on to someone else...keep the kindness alive. Because everyone appreciates more kindness in their lives. Anyway, I digress...I took a size 6 in this top, the 4 would have been too short in the sleeves. The 6 is roomy but it drapes nicely. So depending on your height, you can either take your normal J.Crew blouse size or even size down one.
What do you think of the electric plaid pattern?
