J.E.M. Apparel

By Friday, September 14, 2012 11 , , Permalink 0

As an online window shopper, and with Christmas just around the corner, finding new clothing brands is something that I quite love. Recently I have discovered quite a few online stores that are beyond awesome, jaw dropping, and drool-on-your-keyboard amazing. And j.e.m. apparel just so happens to fall in that category!

As soon as you reach their landing page you will be pointing and smiling just like a little kid at a candy store (or toy store) does! Every single piece is simple yet elegant and classy.

j.e.m. apparel is the kind of store that I wouldn’t mind having as my closet. Every single piece they have I would love to own! I mean, look at the tench coat! Little black dress, cute black pumps, and the coat, beautiful!!

Jenny is the mastermind behind j.e.m. apparel, which was born thanks to Jenny’s passion for affordable and timeless clothing and accessories. I was lucky to get to review the Peacock Print Top, and I have to admit that I am enamored with it. And I don’t say this lightly. There are very few items in my wardrobe that I would use on a daily basis if it were possible (besides my pajamas), and this top falls into this list.

The top is described as a top that makes you want to twirl. And true to its word, I do feel like spinning in my shirt…I actually think I did twirl once, and my boys thought I was crazy (’cause who twirls when only wearing a shirt anyways? isn’t twirling for skirts only?).

What attracted to the Peacock Print Top was the pattern. Gold chains and feather attracted my eyes. It was the tops that popped out from all the others (I’d still love to have all of j.e.m. apparel’s items in my closet, don’t get me wrong).

The shirt is fun and feminine. Its fabric is light. The very first I wore the top was on a very hot day (as very as it gets in WA). But the top made the day more tolerable, it was airy and light weight. I couldn’t say the same for the jeans I was wearing who made my legs toasty.

I must say that while choosing my favorite piece I was not 100% settled on the top. Yes it is beautiful and different, but I simply had to absorb every item. Skirts, dresses, sweaters, accessories. But I always came back to this top. It is that awesome, so me.

What kept me going back was the gathered fabric on the back. The hemline is longer on the back, it makes it look unique! The gathering starts on the sides and goes all the way around the back. A truly standout.

The top is easy to put on and off with or without the zipper on the back. Bu tI honestly think that the thick zipper is an extra touch of awesomeness.

There is one minor flaw…and it can simply be me and my lack of perky girls, but the seam on the under arms is a tad too big for me. It can easily be fixed, no problem, and I have actually worn it as is. It is not that much of a diss, but if you are very picky about the way your clothes look you might want to fix this one spot. Aren’t we “supposed” to tailor our clothes anyways?

    I love this new style where the shirt has a little tail. That’s coming from a Mom with teenagers that wear the LOW jeans..Even though they are pretty modest..sometimes there little behind sticks out! Yikes So I love this! Blessings!
