Nice but small
PostedApril 8, 2016
I own several JJill wraps, and I was expecting a size similar to those, but this one is, by far, smaller. Other than that, soft and warm, and a good addition to a winter wardrobe, but I would have never paid full price for it, taking into consideration that it is only 20% cashmere.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A brass bangle with freshwater pearls, pyrite, silvertone and goldtone metal, and hematite beads with one silvertone snowflake charm. Hook-and-loop closure. Natural variances may occur. One size fits most.

Overpriced, small, not well designed
PostedApril 8, 2016
The charms are pretty, but they all pile up at one extreme of the bracelet. The bracelet's size is for average wrists only; anyone with a slightly thicker wrist will find it uncomfortable. Only worth on sale and with an additional discount. Have seen much better versions of this one.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Almost perfect
PostedApril 8, 2016
I love Born shoes. I usually find their sizing adequate and comfortable for my average size (not narrow, not wide) feet, and their designs very pretty. These sandals are not the exception. They match almost any outfit. But those who dislike glitter should abstain. A small heel would have made them perfect.

Yes, this tunic is really great
PostedDecember 21, 2015
Previous reviews have completely covered all points. This tunic is a go-to. Nice fit, soft fabric, pretty colors. Hopefully, JJill will continue to make it in more springy colors and short sleeves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Another comfortable cotton dress!
PostedDecember 21, 2015
I love it when JJill dresses are cotton and not rayon! This one is perfect for hot weather, and it has pockets as a plus. Some people might not like the loose A line, but I find it very forgiving for all types of body imperfections, not to mention extremely comfortable, and as breezy as it can get for warm places. Can be dressed up with not too high heels and a wrap.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Comfortable and beautiful!
PostedDecember 21, 2015
I recently discovered the JJill kimonos, and I already own four. The fist one I bought, in my usual size, M, was way too big. I bought this one in S and it fits the bill perfectly: loose without looking like a sack of potatoes. The fabric of this particular one is light, yet warm. It can be used in cool weather places like Miami, all the way up to Canada, with a turtleneck underneath. I love the easy elegance it provides, while being the most comfortable thing one could wear; it almost feels like my pajamas!

Not soft, no pockets, no good!
PostedDecember 4, 2015
I bought this over the Internet without seeing it in person. I thought the fabric would be softer, but it is a cheap, rough cotton, viscose, rayon and polyester blend. But the worse is that there are no pockets! First time I see a hoodie without pockets. It defeats the whole purpose of the jacket. Lightweight, good for Spring and Autumn only. Nice color.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Exceptionally light -but warm- vest
PostedOctober 29, 2015
There are already enough reviews praising the pattern and looks of this vest. What was very surprising to me is how light -but warm at the same time- it is. When I first touched it, I was sure it would be a "summer" vest, but after a few minutes of wearing it, I was so warm I had to take it off. The colors are indeed a bit darker than pictured, but that does not take anything away from the quality. Despite what other reviews say, I found it true to size in my usual medium. At the sale price with an additional discount, it is for sure a steal!

Pricey but so cute
PostedOctober 8, 2015
Even on sale, I find this tee to be somewhat expensive. However, it is so original and cute that it's well worth the splurge. In the picture, the shade looks grayish or white, but in the real garment it is more bluish. It makes it a perfect pair with anything jeans. Also with whites, blacks and greys. The sequins give a bohemian and/or a bit more dressy feel to the shirt. The fit is perfect: not too tight, but not loose either. I am not a big fan of slub, I would have preferred it in pima cotton, but this is no big deal, really.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Indeed slimming, flattering and comfortable!
PostedSeptember 17, 2015
This skirt is everything the reviews say it is... except for the fake front pockets, which are real; one just has to take the thread away to open them. At regular price it might be a bit expensive, but it is worth every penny because it has excellent tailoring. I wish all JJill skirts were tailored like this one! Even though it is a "summery" skirt, it's use can be extended to Spring and Autumn, by pairing it with leggings, tights, boots and thicker sweaters/tops.

With an ornate paisley print and a light, soft touch, our asymmetric poncho is feminine and romantic. Boat neckline.
 

Where is the other scarf poncho?

Up until recently, there was another scarf poncho similar to this one, with a paisley and flowers design in blue and peach hues? Now, it is gone from the site. Has it been sold out or discontinued?

Will this model be restocked soon?

This is an amazing tee, a modern twist of a classical, and it flew away from your shelves. I would like to see it again in more hues. Will you be restocking it soon? If not, will you consider bringing it back?

Styling?

To supplement Sarah's answer on fit, could you provide additional information on styling, please. For instance, which of the two models (pleated or smooth fit) has wider legs? Which fabric is heavier/softer? Which is more forgiving of body imperfections? Thank you!

Can this be fixed after dryer mishap?

My partner dried this in the dryer in a senior moment. It's shrunk and wrinkled oddly. I can't replace it since my size is gone. Is there anyway to fix it?

Have you tried washing it again in cold water and laying it flat to dry? Also, I see there are now plenty of sizes to choose from, at least in the Misses.

Would the perfect cardi in Red Ginger go well with this dress?

I think it would, but something redder, more like "pimento" would match even better.

Soft cotton pencil skirt in a fresh floral print. Elasticized waist. Shaped with darts at the back waist.
 

What is the blue/gray shirt shown with the skirt? Would "deep blue" go with the skirt?

Topic:Fabric
I bought this skirt, the pearl gray linen blouse, and the lemongrass tank to make a set, and they match perfectly together. I can also replace the lemongrass tank with a white, grey or black one, and they all match very well too. No blue shades would match, I believe.
