Original, warm, comfy, cute

This sweater is really cute and warm. A bit boxy, but not very thick. I am 5"1, 130 lbs, and the MP fits perfectly. It will look great with red corduroy pants, but it also pairs well with black, brown, beige and, of course, jeans. I am not sure why there are so many reviews that dislike the little shinny bird. It is not as if it were huge and covered all of the sweater. I believe it is the nicest detail, along with the small snowflakes, which are also a bit glittery. All in all, a very original piece and, now, at the sale price, even better!
Yes, I recommend this product.

The wool and rabbit hair in this sweater make it warm (and a bit scratchy, I must say), even though it is not thick. I am 5"1' and 130 lbs, and the Medium Petite feels slightly boxy and short (it does not look as long and close to the body as on the model in the picture). But none of this is an inconvenience. There is plenty of space to wear a tee or a shirt underneath, and it looks like a sweater and not a tunic. The colors are vibrant, and uplifting in dark winter days. I got the green/blue and I am seriously considering going for the pink/orange one too. This is a sweater to "make a statement," a pretty one, I think.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This blooming botanical dress and the confetti dress (in pink tones) have the same cut, which I find very flattering. The fabric is light and breezy, perfect for summer months. I also like tht the dresses have pockets. Both of them match perfectly with fucsia, orange, beige or white cardigans and a pair of honey-colored sandals. It is really easy to put up a nice look with this three basic JJill elements, which I love!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I needed a tunic to pair with leggings, and this one seemed to do the trick. However, I found a MP too hip-hugging for an A line tunic, and the usual JJill sizing. Also, the material is extremely thin. I am not sure how long it will last. I like thin garments for summer, but this one lacks weight to give a good drape to the tunic. If it were not for these shortcomings, I would have rated it five stars

I was reluctant to buy this garment because of the synthetic material, but it has turned out to be a great buy. More than a "jacket", it is a short cardigan. The hue and texture are vibrant and soft. I pair it with a linen floral skirt, and the result is wonderful. I get compliments every time I wear them together. It goes perfectly with jeans and provides a light cover-up for summer nights. It is a true finding at the discounted price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am amazed that this skirt is still not gone. I have the purple version. It is so lively, romantic, fresh, elegant. I get a lot of compliments every time I wear it. It can be dressed down with a t-shirt or dressed up with a nice cardigan. I pair it with the Wearever cropped pintucked jacket in the same amethyst shade, and it looks amazing. It is also very comfortable. Because it is linen, it needs careful washing and ironing, but it is still worth every effort. At the sale price, it is a real steal.

This dress is amazingly comfortable. Very thin (maybe a bit too much), and thus great for summer days. It is quite casual. I do not see a way of dressing it up, so not good for outings, but excellent for a day at the beach or the pool. I am 5'1", 130 lbs, curvy and the petite medium fits very well; neither too tight nor too loose. The stripe pattern might not be for everyone, though, as I do believe it makes me look a bit larger. All in all, a nice, fresh, casual summer dress.

This sweater has a very nice drape and color, indeed. I bought the green one, and I think I can even wear it without a cami underneath, if I use beige underwear. I mention this because the sweater is not so "airy"; I guess the rayon in it makes it a bit hot for summer, and not so soft either, but perfect for spring or autumn, and for layering. The sleeves are slightly long, like the model shows, and they are a bit narrow at the armpits, but not a big deal. I am hoping it will not snag, and will wash (well, dry clean) well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had bought this scarf as a gift, and it turned out to be so pretty that I decided to keep it for myself! Now that it is here again, I will buy a second one to give. The silk is soft and shiny, it has a good size (not too small, not too big) and it beautifully complements many outfits. I have used it with beige and pale pink shirts. It also goes very well with olive color, and gives a splash of life to any black item. At the sale price, it is a steal!

I have a lot of pastel-colored tanks from JJill and I was looking for something to wear on top of them during summer, as I do not always like to show my arms, but like to be cool in hot weather. This shirt solved the problem. I can pair it with pink, salmon, green, blue, white, beige, even orange, and it looks wonderful all the time. I have received many a compliment when I wear it. To be noted is that it is a bit boxy, so those who like shaped garments might not like it or might wish to order a smaller size. Goes without saying that it is translucent and cannot be worn without "something" underneath. And now that I think of it, it could also make a great bathing-suit cover-up for the beach!
Yes, I recommend this product.

How warm is this sweater?

Is it for really cold weathers or can it be worn in more temperate places, like Florida, for instance?

A shimmering, elasticized cross-strap style. 3" natural jute-wrapped wedge. Lightly padded, canvas-lined footbed and latex sole. Made in Spain. European sizes (USA equivalents): 37 (6–6 1/2), 38 (7–7 1/2), 39 (8–8 1/2), 40 (9–9 1/2), 41 (10).
 

Is the latex sole noisy when you walk/step?

In other words, is it a hard or soft sole?
Topic:material
Hi, I would say it is a hard sole because it is not flexible due to the platform to which it is glued, but it does not make any noise when walking either, at least not on the street, on carpets or wooden floors, which is where I mostly walk.

Length of this shirt

Low hip does not mean much when you are 4'9" tall. Can you tell me the actual length of a Petite Medium from neck to tail. Thanks
Topic:Size, Fit
I am 5"1' and the regular one covers up to the bottom of my buttocks. The length from neckline to bottom is 28".

Whare are the care cleaning instructions for this item

Does this item require drycleaning? Or what are the washing instructions - does it require ironing?
Topic:Care
The instructions state "machine wash cold with similar colors" "and "warm iron if needed", but I wash them by hand with very good results, and do iron them because I like the seams very well pressed. However, I think it might be worn without ironing if removed quickly from the dryer.
