J Crew bell-sleeve crepe dress (E7848, $128) runs 000 – 16. Color choices are black and dark papaya (DPA). I didn’t grab the exact fabric info. The website says poly/viscose/elastane. The lining is likely 100% poly. This dress was cut in the past week or so to $99.99.
Size 6 – The dress fit. I’m pretty sure I was able to get it fully zipped. Unlike many other garments in the marketplace, there’s actually some structure to this cut, so it nipped in at the waist. I would need Spanx to tighten and smooth. I don’t wear a ton of brights like this, but I loved the color. That in combination with the cut made it elegantly spunky. The style looked very modern, with a slight nod to the 60s,.

Cotton Jackie shell with neon tipping (SP16, E8649, $52.50) runs XXXS – XL. The color is called neon white persimmon (NWP).
Size S – This one is fitted. I would need a M. It’s probably a pass for me. At the beginning of the year I found out I have an umbilical hernia. Until I have the surgery, there’s going to be a small pooch out no matter how much exercising I do. Or don’t. (slaps knee).
I like the tipping at the neck, arms and hem. It grounds and frames the stripes, which can sometimes be too much when they’re this width.
I love the stripes and the neon tipping.
