J. Crew Lace Applique and Jeweled Wool Back-Zip Sweaters

Hi Everyone!

Fall is my favorite season because I love to layer.  And, one of my favorite wardrobe staples is a fun/unique sweater.  I love J. Crew sweaters.  They are wardrobe workhorses for me.  I own sweaters from J. Crew from as far back as 2006/2007 and I have found the superb quality to be consistent throughout the years.  Recently, I added two sweaters to my wardrobe that will be on constant repeat for years to come.

The Lace Applique Sweater is an adorable design with spectacular details that will jazz up a cute pair of jeans:

Fit Details:  This sweater fits TTS.  The sweater is a little boxy, but not too boxy.  And, wearing a shirt underneath the sweater makes the sweater less boxy in my opinion.  The applique details are well-done and securely attached.  This is a great quality piece.

I also added the Jeweled Wool Back-Zip Sweater to my closet recently.  I was totally in love with the jeweled details on the shoulder.  I am a huge fan of embellishments on sweaters:

Fit Details:  This sweater fits TTS.  I took my normal size Large.  And, I love the details on this beauty.  The back zip adds a great unique feature, too.  The sweater is great quality and the fit is superb, too.  The weight is substantial without being too heavy or suffocating.  The back-zip is flattering even on this black girl booty, LOL, because it lays well on the butt.  This beauty gets 5-stars on the J. Crew website in the solid colors.
