J Crew’s Blythe silk dress (15498) – $59.99 now on final sale, down from $185. It comes in
white ivory and shocking pink, which appears to be sold out. Or maybe J Crew is hiding it right now.
About the hook/button at the chest. It really needs to remain buttoned, from what I’ve tried so far. It’s the least attractive part of the dress because there is essentially a white thread crossing the front for no good reason. Why make a functional slit when it doesn’t look good unbuttoned? No, no pic of it unbuttoned. It just looked weird.

Me loveth this dress. The fit is great. It feels like it can go dressy or casual (cardi party!). I meant to try it on with flats and forgot. OMG…when I got the dangling pearls necklace, I opened it, took these pics and then went to sleep. I had a dream that the pearls were falling off and I was stepping on them. When I did, they crushed like pieces of chalk and, of course, I was trying not to cry. It felt like my teeth was falling out…in the dream. Don’t you hate that dream? Only how sad is it that my teeth are J Crew dangling pearls? *slaps knee* That’s what I get for sleeping in the middle of the afternoon!
Editing to add…there are 2 seams that come up from the waist and stop at the nips. This is the 2nd drawback to the dress. I am hoping that the situation relaxes after I steam the dress. The seams will end in different places on different people, I’m guessing, so it’s something to consider. It’s not noticeable enough that I want to return the dress. Thankfully.
Likey? No likey? Chime in…
