J. Crew Review: Lace Shift Dress, Long-Sleeve Dress in Floral Lace & Cap-Sleeve Sequin Dress

Sleeveless Lace Shift Dress (size 0)
 This dress is so user-friendly. Love that it skims the curves yet allows enough flexibility for my usual post dinner food baby. The lace is really lovely and solid - not worried about snagging it. I loved the bright blue but my husband thought that the color looked cheap. The grey is super elegant and not too bridal and of course navy is great for any occasion. A real winner!

Long-Sleeve Dress in Floral Lace (size 2)
Sorry about the socks. This dress is funky. First of all, I think it runs small. The size 2 barely fit. I could zipper it up I was just too lazy to do so. I just don't understand the lace, the flounce at the bottom, the waistband, the see-through sleeves. It is A LOT of look. It felt cheap to me. Both in quality and the way it made me feel in it. A big pass. I think if I try anything else in lace at J Crew, I would like to try the Collection Scalloped Lace Dress. Looks beautiful.

Cap-Sleeve Sequin Dress (size 2)
Yikes. Looks like I threw a bag over my body. I think I would have to take my usual shift size of 0. Even so, I'm a bit over the elastic waist thing. I need a little more structure in my dresses since baby #2 sort of stretched some things out in the waist area :) I do like the sequins and the color. So subtle. The high neckline is hard for me but elegant. Smaller busted ladies will look better. So take your smaller size on this one. If money were no option, I'd love to try the Collection Starry Sequin Dress. Or maybe even the romper?

What do you think?


  1. I agree with you on the floral lace one, it runs very small. I tried my regular 0 and it was really tight, not a good look. Also agree that it looks kind of cheap, at least in the blue colorway. I love the first one on you (very flattering) and also love the sequin one but it reminds me too much of a Calypso one from a few years ago, I am.having a bit of deja-vu...
    Thanks for the reviews!

  2. Nice blog collect very nice information .
