J.Crew: Shimmer Crinkle Shell

The Shimmer Crinkle Shell from J.Crew retails for $45. It comes in *Bronzed Twig* and *Heather Carbon*, sizes XSmall-XLarge.

The description on the J.Crew website reads:

An asymmetrical riff on the tux ruffle (it's our theme du jour this season), with some subtle sheen. We wove tiny metallic threads into this tank and then treated it to create a cool, crinkly texture. A perfect underlayer to a blazer or a long cardigan, it's also just as pretty all on its own. Poly/rayon. Crewneck. Sleeveless. Import. Hand wash.

I picked this up in the Heather Carbon color from another JCA on the Weekly Exchange post over at J.Crew Aficionada, and would like to try it in the Bronzed Twig, as well. This is the size XSmall:

This one is very comfortable and the *hint* of shimmer is subtle and pretty...appropriate for daytime, as well as the evening. I wore it the other day with my white *The Weekend* jeans, Skinny Flip-Flops in Metallic Pewter, and Metallic Silver accessories which included earrings similar to this pair, as well as this bracelet (in Silvertone). I also plan to wear it with blue denim, black, olive green and khaki.
