Jason Wu Looks & Review

I took some pictures yesterday after my excitement from the Jason Wu collection died down a little. I needed time to think with my brain and not act on impulse. That's what happens with highly anticipated collections like these -we run out and buy anything and everything we can get our hands on with our eyes closed!

Blouse with Tie in Blush Dots ($34.99 size small)
The style of this blouse is nice fairly nice. I like that it's long and flows enough to wear with leggings or jeans but can be easily dressed up with a skirt. I like the polka dot detailing that runs through both the collar and the rest of the top. A size small fits a bit loose but I prefer looser tops. I'm only unsure about the color.

 Blouse with Tie in Navy Dots ($34.99 size small)
I also picked up the navy version of the same top which I like much better. I feel that navy suits my skin tone better and it also gives off a more casual and relaxed feel.

The sheer long-sleeve blouse caught my eye while looking at the collection lookbook so I knew I'd have to give it a try. I didn't think the flouncy top part of the blouse would suit me but to my surprise, I kind of like it! However, it's very sheer (you can see the waistband of my leggings in the photo.) Another downside is that the sleeves are too baggy for my arms. I'm still undecided on this top.

I really liked this top and then gradually grew to really hate it. The rayon material is super thin and wrinkly. I've seen the style millions of times before. I do really like the blush with black combination but I'm sure there are better tops out there that are made better or cost less.

Dot-Print Shirt Dress in Cream ($39.99 size x-small)
This is one item that I really, really adore. Upon first glance, the dress looked bland and dull but with the my favorite ribbon used as a belt, I love it! It just seems very modern yet classic at the same time and the bicycle wheel pattern is simply fabulous. (P.S. I thought they were fruits at first!)

 Poplin Dress in Navy ($39.99 size 4)
Oh the popular poplin dress. Honestly, I don't really like this. I tried to like it. I wore it around the house and sat and blogged in it. I tried different cardigans and shoes with it. I just really tried to love it and couldn't. Don't get me wrong, it's very pretty. But the sleeveless style probably just isn't for me. I also don't really like the colors of the stripes and the material gets horribly linty after just a few minutes of wear. The size 4 fits with some extra room -a size 2 would've been much better.

 Trench Coat in Navy ($54.99 size x-small)
The navy trench coat was one of the pieces that I had to get my hands on. I love the navy collar along with the pretty floral trim. It's a very fun, whimsical piece. However, as you can see, the sleeves are way too long for me. This is one of my definite keepers though and I'll either have to get it tailored or wear the sleeves cuffed a bit.

What were your favorite pieces from the Jason Wu collection? I hope you all have a lovely day.


  1. I got the blush dress with the yellow /black stripes (currently wearing it!) and I love it! I felt the same way about the blush blouse with dots... with a better fit in the sleeves and sides,it would have been top notch!

    Sidenote... if you're not going to keep the navy poplin dress in 4, would you consider selling it?? I've been stalking the Target website for days....

  2. The blue dress looks fab on you! Some of the other pieces look a little big on you though!

  3. I love the navy blue blouse and that trench coat :) Looks great on you :)


  4. I love the dresses on you! The navy dot blouse looks so chic tucked into your skirt. I bought a few of the same things as you, and also wrote a review, as well as a tale of my experience with some shopping tips. I can relate to the frenzy and having trouble making clear decisions amidst the rush and crowds.

  5. Glad you got the Jason Wu collection. The outfits look nice. I like the casual feel from that blue shirt.

    Great fashion tips girl.

  7. Wow, your store had a lot of selection! So disappointed that the navy dress didn't fit you :( I agree that the Blush Dots shirt was kind of a weird color - I chose the navy version too.
