    Love the JCrew blouse – wish it weren’t out of my price range!

    Belle, do you have any experience with Everlane blouses? They have some beautiful jewel tones.

      I have two. Sometimes, I think the styles are too short. But I think the quality is good.

    I’m terrible at layering, and have always wondered how you get loose sleeves like most of these blouses have to stay straight and ‘right’ under a jacket, or sweater or whatever. Whenever I layer I’m constantly tugging on this or that to get it to stay in the right place. Luckily I live in a warm climate where I don’t have to do often, but I love the look just not the experience.

    Belle, on the JCrew blouse I’m also curious about the sizing, if your wouldn’t mind sharing when you review. Good luck on your interview!
