J.Crew: Tiered Spaghetti Strap Midi Dress in Eyelet

I found the Tiered Spaghetti Strap Midi Dress in Eyelet in one size, a 4, in-store. I had no expectation that it would fit me, being a size 4, but I took it to the dressing room with me anyway because it just seemed to “call to me”. I can’t explain it but I know you know that feeling of some item speaking to you. LOL!

I wanted to make sure I shared pics that would show shoes I’d wear with this dress like these strappy sandals from last year’s collection. I really cannot believe the size 4 fit me. The bodice is perfect but not too tight or form-fitting. The skirt is dropped and starts around the hips. The length is at the end of my calves but still above the ankle and looks fairly close to the online image.

I was thinking of getting this altered, maybe bringing up the skirt portion a few inches but with the pleating at the seam I’m not sure it would be possible without deconstructing the skirt. Not to mention expensive to do. I loved the fit of this dress so much I was tempted to order the Lemon color. I also thought about ordering this similar shorter version, the Ruffle-Hem Spaghetti Strap Dress in Eyelet, but the bodice is not the same.

Here are some other shoes I’d pair with this dress.

    What! I hadn’t even seen this dress, how did I miss it! It looks really flattering on you, especially in the bodice. Would hemming it an inch or two be enough? Or enough so that it hits mid ankle, maybe. I hope you make it work, as it looks really lovely and those shoes would all work. (My favorite would be the pink!)

    Oh, and YES, I totally know when clothes speaks to me! No harm in trying stuff on, you know?! Sometimes you just want to know what it’ll look like on you. And sometimes you try stuff on and you see that it doesn’t work, and it feels a little like a relief, like you just had to get it out of your system and see for yourself!

    Thank you for pointing this dress out, I have been looking for something for my son’s graduation ceremony. Ordered two sizes-hope one works out!

    I read your blog, but I don’t think I’ve ever commented. I just had to tell you, though, that this dress looks AMAZING on you! I wouldn’t mess with the length, as it might change the proportions for the worse.
