I ordered a few items from J.Crew Factory and they finally arrived today!
For size reference I’m 5′ 2.5″ and I’m usually size XS petite in tops and 0/25 petite in pants and jeans. If you’re new to my blog I typically share the link to a short video clip below each image (the same video clips I share in my Instagram stories swipe ups during sales). My Pinterest is also up to date if you prefer a more visual catalog of my reviews. Please refer to my other reviews organized by retailer here.
J.Crew Factory Utility Rain Jacket, size XXS | Ann Taylor Curvy Frayed Hem Performance Stretch Skinny Jeans in ecru, size 00P (review here) | Ann Taylor Mila Leather Pumps in camel (true to size, review here) | Click here, here and here to view the clips from my try-on
This rain jacket is water repellent since the beads of hot water rolled right off of the material when I was steaming the wrinkles out. The jacket is unlined so it doesn’t feel soft inside. The sleeves are loose fitting and the jacket has an oversized fit making it comfortable for layering underneath. It has adjustable ties at the waist inside if you want more waist definition, a hood that is not removable and the front pockets are functional. The measurements of size XXS are: 38″ chest, 14″ upper arm circumference, 10.5″ at the wrist, 15″ shoulders, 22″ sleeve length, 36″ waist (measured uncinched up to where they knotted the pulls for the adjustable waist), 42″ along the bottom hem and 30″ total length. The material is 84% polyester and 16% cotton.
This J.Crew Factory sweater blazer is a great option compared to the regular J.Crew Sophie open front sweater blazer (review here) which I have in black and camel (heather khaki). I had tried on the Factory version with the sweater blazer with the buttons before so I ordered this one in size XS since I didn’t want the sleeves to be too snug. I prefer the sleeves to be more loose fitting for comfortable layering. Size XS fits like size XXS regular from regular J.Crew. The Factory version is machine washable, 100% cotton and it has longer sleeves which are bracelet length versus 3/4 sleeves, 35% cotton, 35% polyester and 30% merino wool (recommended dry clean on the tag) for the regular J.Crew version. I purchased the regular J.Crew version on sale for $75 in February last year and I recently purchased the Factory version for $41.65 last week.
The measurements of size XS are: 38″ chest, 14.25″ shoulders, 11″ upper arm circumference, 8″ wrist, 27.5″ total length.

I had high hopes for this adorable button down top but it’s boxy and the button gaps at the chest. I tried using fashion tape to close the gap since fastening the second button looked too stuffy but the fashion tape did not stick well to the material for some reason. The top doesn’t have much room at the hips so if you are curvier then you may need to size up. If I sized up the chest would be too loose and the bust darts are already a bit awkward on me (I wear a size 32A or 34AA in petite bras). Size XXS measurements are: 13.5″ shoulders, 35″ chest, 38″ along the bottom hem, 24″ total length.
I ordered these Mary Jane flats in both ashen khaki and black without much thought about how I would style them. I think I would have liked these even more if they had a little heel on them. They run true to size and the patent leather isn’t too stiff. Straps do not come off so if you have larger ankles or a higher instep them they may not be easy to slip on.
Thanks for stopping by!
