J. Crew Review- Merino Tatted Lace Sweater

Hello!  Before I get into the review, can anyone tell me why most of my pics have an inch of white on both sides??  I am new to blogger (and blogging, lol) and I cannot figure it out.  I am copying the URLs from a Shutterfly album.  Is that the problem?   Its driving me insane.  

Anyway, on to more important things like clothes.  Here is the Merino Tatted Lace Sweater from J Crew in Heather Soft Gray.  I don't think this has been that popular since it went on sale pretty quickly, but I love this sweater.   I already own it in the lavender color (called Tender Thistle and looks more pink online than it is IRL) but I couldn't resist getting the gray one with the last 30% off sale promo.  I would not have paid full price for this, but I love it for $55ish.  It isn't itchy, is a nice length on me and the lace effect at the top is really pretty.  I wear a cami or tank underneath but I think it looks cute that way.  I am wearing a Small.

I am wearing it here with my favorite 7FAMK Dojo jeans and a white tank, and these Old Navy flats.  My store had several colors (red, the blue I am wearing, nude, black).   They are kind of stiff but they run a little big so I think my feet will ok.  They are really cute for a cheap pop of color.

Have you tried this sweater?  I think its worth checking out if there's another sale promo!  Hope you all have a great Wednesday!


  1. Hi! Regular reader, first time poster! =) I was tempted by this sweater during the promo, but decided against it. I was afraid of getting stuck with a final sale item. I love it on you! Do you think it it TTS? Thanks!

  2. I actually tried this sweater on last weekend in-store, albeit not at my local/usual store. I love the tender thistle color, kind of like a lavender mauve. It ran TTS for me--I sometimes size down to XXS in J.Crew but XS is my true size and it fit well in this sweater.

  3. I think its TTS. I pretty much always wear a Small in J. Crew sweaters even though I usually size down in tees and woven tops.
