J.Crew: Tuxedo-Front Cheetah Cotton Cami Review

This is J.Crew's Tuxedo-Front Cheetah Cotton Cami (item #15252), which retails for $88.  It is numerically sized.  J.Crew describes the cami as such:
A playful summer shirt with a ruffly tuxedo placket and pleating around the neck. It's one of our most versatile pieces for summer. Tuck it into a high-waisted skirt or toss it on with your favorite jeans. Cotton. Classic fit. Sleeveless. Side zip. Straight hem. Unlined. Hits at hip. Import. Dry clean.
It is the same as the Tuxedo-Front Solid Cotton Cami I reviewed yesterday.  The fit and the fabric is the same as the other cami - fairly true to size, although this was a 4, and I would like to try on a 2, but not sure about a 0 (which is my normal sleeveless top and cami size).

I really love this pattern!  I think the cheetah pattern is adorable.  Normally I don't go for animal prints at all, but this is a nice, neutral color, and the pattern is subtle, not overwhelming.  

Here is a close-up of the napkins on this cami.  I still think they are a super cute detail that look better on than on the hanger.

I was also super tempted by this top, but again, the price was just a bit too high.  I'll be crossing my fingers for this one to end up on sale, too!

What do you think?  Do you like this top?  Do you like the cheetah print?

Missed this one at the B&M. It looks cute on you, but yeah, I'd wait for sale as well.

Did you try on the Monterey skirt? I missed that one too but saw some IRL pictures on other blogs.

I like the cheetah print - it would make a cute cardi.

JJC - I couldn't wait for the sale :( I ended up getting it with my student discount! And I saw you saw the Monterey skirt review? Not a fan of that skirt at all!

Cate and Paper Bag Princess - Thank you! I am glad I ended up getting it, it is such a cute print :)
