J Crew: Flare Dress in Watercolor Floral, Sleeveless Lace Shift Dress, Merino Striped Sweater Dress

Let’s move on to J Crew dresses today.

This is the same style as the Aquatic Floral Silk Dress. The neckline may be a little rounder on this one. But it’s the same down to the wide hem at the bottom with one HUGE difference. This dress is 100% Polyester while the other was 100% Silk. AND!!!! This dress is $10 more at $168 while the Aquatic Floral dress was $158. WTF!!
The size 8 fit fine. I wouldn’t be able to size down since it’s a fit-and-flare/A-line style. Take your normal size in this dress. I have no room to give in the regular size 8 so I can’t size to the Petite.
But gosh is that print gorgeous.
~ Sleeveless Lace Shift Dress, Navy Black, size 6 ~
I tried on the size 6 because there’s wasn’t a size 8 and it actually fit. It could use a little smoothing out with some Spanx but overall it fits well. The V-Neck is not too low that you need a cami. The length is just right for me but could be a little short on those of you taller than me. The overlay is Navy with the black underneath it. It also comes in Bright Ocean and Grey Ivory. That last color looks like it could really be dressed up for a wedding.

There always seems to be some iteration of the sweater dress each year weather in wool, cashmere or blend. This dress is 100% Merino Wool and is actually really comfortable on. It’s not itchy at all as some wool can be. The Small is a nice fit with room to layer if you need it. It has a slight drop-shoulder seam but it’s not too bothersome.
Navy and Ivory stripes are my favorite stripes to wear. It’s on promo (as of this writing) so I expect it to make it to the sale section by the time it cools down and is really needed. I do see this as an option for the Factory too. It’s seems like something that would be copied.
Dresses aren’t really on my radar yet. And when they will be I’ll be looking for those that can go with my Frye boots. You can still get them on Amazon. There’s a Leslie with a little bit higher heel, too. So I’ll be looking for casual and comfortable dresses.

How about you? Are you looking for any dresses for Fall?
