Multistripe Dress (size 2)
I tried this on because the shape reminded of the Sparkle Dot Dress (review here) and it is quite similar. J. Crew is doing a lot of high-necked sleeveless dresses this spring and while they are cute I the fit is a little bit tricky. Much like the Sparkle Dot, the chest was slightly snug on me. I wouldn't size up though because the darling fit on the rest of the dress would be off. The main difference I noted was the length! This dress is pretty short! I don't mind it that much but if you are anything over 5'4" you might feel a bit naked. The cotton is quite thick and structured - good for the way the skirt looks, not so good for my boobs.
Lace-Stripe Dress (size 2)
Again with the high neck and sleeveless shift shape. The size 2 was snug on my breasts but the hips were huge! I'm trying to show how much extra material there is in the first picture. It's a shame because I like the idea of the dress but you must have a normal/small size chest or a very pear figure to wear this well. The lace in stripes is quite a cute idea. High necks are not always the cutest on me. Also fairly short.
Short-Sleeve Chambray Shirt (size 2)
I feel like this shirt has gotten a lot of love but I found the fit super awkward. It was almost pulling across the chest but really it was pulling across the armpits! The armpits hang sort of low (you can sort of see it in the RH Picture) which cause a tightness and a distortion of the proportion (say that 10 times) of the shirt. It looks very cute with the June's Meadow toothpicks which I did finally decide to purchase with the 30% + educator discount.
Anyone else loving/hating these high-necked short spring dresses?
