J.Crew's Cotton Sateen Gateau Skirt (item #13464) is another one of Jenna's Picks. This skirt originally retailed for $88, but select colors are on sale for $69.50. J.Crew describes the skirt as such:
A sweet confection in cotton sateen. This feminine skirt features pleated tiers and inverted pleats around the waist, creating a flirty bell shape. Sits at waist. Side zip. 20" long. Import. Dry clean.This is another one of Jenna's Picks that mysteriously changed after they were originally posted. The picture now calls your attention to the Merino Michelle V-Neck Cardigan (item #11659), which also retailed for $88, with select colors on sale now for $69.50, and other colors on sale for $49.99. J.Crew describes the cardigan as such:
I can't really comment on the sweater, because I generally avoid wool clothes, and so this would probably never make it into my wardrobe. Plus, earlier this year I bought a ton of Gap's New V-Neck Cardigans, which, in my opinion, are pretty darn similar to this one.
The perfect finishing touch to any outfit—layer it on. We love it ladylike and belted, or casual and comfortable over jeans and shorts. Merino wool in a 14-gauge knit. Enamel buttons. Fitted. V-neck. Rib trim at neck, cuffs and hem. Long sleeves. Hits at low hip. Import. Dry clean.
As for the skirt, I totally love it. When it first debuted, it was one of the items I really wanted to get, but I held off, and I'm glad I did, because I ended up getting 3 of them, and all on various promotions. I love the shape of the skirt, and I think the tiers and the pleats add a nice, feminine touch. (Check back later today for my review of the skirt.)
What do you think? Do you like the skirt or sweater? Do you own either one?
