I was glad to see J Crew bring the Pom-pom shell back. I missed out on its original debut a couple of years ago and didn't want to repeat my mistake.
J Crew describes it as:
Based on a design from years past—we loved it so much the first time, we went to the archives to bring it back. Tailored to perfection and crisscrossed with rows of delicate pom-poms (a retro touch we can't get enough of), this pretty top dresses up denim and livens up simple summer looks with a touch of textural interest.
Exposed Back Zip
It retails for $128 and comes in citrus lime (yellow), sparkling sea (periwinkle) and white.
As for fit, I'm wearing a size 6...I would suggest going with the larger of your two sizes. It is fully lined and made from a substantial weight cotton, so no danger of being arrested for indecent exposure due to sheerness if you choose to wear it alone.
Worth mentioning...because I know some of you don't care for it, this top does have the exposed back zip.
I love the neckline...very Jackie O. I think this is a classic piece that can be worn for years to come.
