While in Union Square last week I stumbled non-chalantly into J.Crew. Recently disheartended by the majority of their selection, and the way that it fits pearshapes, I wasn’t expecting to find anything at all that I love. But that darn 25% off lured me in, so browsing I went. I wasn’t finding anything I loved, even on the rack, and then I spotted this black and white beauty. With geometric designs, a narrowed, banded waist and flattering length, I immediately went to try it on.
Lo and behold, a size 10 fit beautifully in the waist, was even roomy in the hips, and sat exactly where I like my dresses to rest on my natural waist. The black and white bands are not placed in awkward parts of the body, but rather work well to continue to enhance an hourglass frame. The straps allow for a bra and the buttoned front allowed me to fold down the sides, creating a v-neck look.
The thick, woven knit material keeps this dress from flowing in the wind too much and was perfect for a recent rehearsal dinner. Finally, the dress is fully lined meaning no visible underwear colors! In all, i’m in love. My perfect black and white Spring/Summer dress. The only bummer? It’s so weird but it is only sold in stores! I couldn’t find it on the J.Crew website and called to confirm. At this point, you can only pop into your local J.Crew to get it.
What do you think of this J.Crew piece? Has anyone else tried it on?
