Review: J Crew Polka-Dot Popover

The polka-dot popover...the good, the bad and the dotty.  I love a good polka-dot piece so I knew I'd have to try this top.

Overall, I like it...my only complaint is that it's a bit sheer.  I wish they'd made it in a more substantial material. But with that said, for me, it's still a keeper.  I plan to layer it instead of wearing it alone and if I ever choose to, I can always put a cami underneath.


The fit is tts to a touch big.  I normally vary between 4 and  6 in J Crew blouses and went with a 4 in this top.  Unless you have broad shoulders, you should be fine with the smaller of your J Crew sizes.

Here are a few of the ways that I plan to wear it:






So, you've heard the good and the dotty.  Now for the bad...remember that i-phone that I was supposed to get?  I went to get it the other day and someone at the cellular store had given me incorrect information.  Instead of being able to upgrade in January, I have to wait until September.  What a bummer!!

Has anybody else tried the polka dot popover?  If so, what did you think?

  8. I don't own a polka dot popover but I tend to be drawn to polka dots in general (dresses and tights). I like how this top looks on you, especially the different ways you paired it.
