I absolutely adore this Fairisle crew neck from J Crew. I really madly want it, but I think I am sort of set for sweaters this winter, I’ve got about 17. Plus, I’m writing a piece about compulsive shoppers at the moment and I think I might be one. So I’m trying not to buy anything for a bit.
But you must get this – you can never have enough sweaters until you get to 17 or thereabouts. And you must must have at least ONE Fairisle/Christmas sweater.
Do not get one from Gap. J Crew knitwear is the absolute best and it will be a flattering and cosy fit. Also, there is an absolute embarrassment of sizes available, which there won’t be forever, so if you want it, get on with it. I know I always say that but honestly, there’s nothing more crushing than thinking “Okay I love it I’m going to get it” and there’s only one sweater in an XXXXS left. The multi-coloured version of this sweater has now completely sold out, so, you know, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
J Crew comes up a bit small and you’ll want this to be cosy, so go a size up – if you’re a 12, get a L.
It’ll be worth the wait for shipping – J Crew do like to take their cool time to ship stuff to you – and also the expense, though £89 for a sweater isn’t actually too bad. And you will love it like a pet.
Go on, buy it. You love J. Crew. You can use the money from the thing on compulsive shoppers to pay for it.
I’ve tried it in store…too itchy for me, but depends how sensitive you are!
Jess this is valuable information!
Waiting with bated breath for the verdict on the Johnnie B jumper? (A potential future of VAT-dodging opening up in front of my eyes…)
yes sorry – must post a pic… coming soon! xx
Hmm. not sure I like it, looks a bit like the jumper of a mental-mass-murdery-weirdo on Criminal Minds once?? But that might just be me.
In other news, snoody snoods of snoodiness have arrived and I’ve been wearing mine constantly since 1pm. Am so cozy!! Thanks for the tip off x
I’m so happy to have brought such intense warmth to what seems like the ENTIRE Spike crew
