J Crew’s Elinor dress ($138) comes in white, cerise & grappa punch. It runs 00-16 (72114) and P00-P12 (83354). 95% cotton, 5% linen, 100% poly lining.
Size 6 – Cerise. I couldn’t really figure out the tie. I think it’s a body type issue. There would be more length on the ribbon if there were less stomach on me. I tied it first in front….
….then I tied it in the back. It seemed to work better and make more sense in the front. I hadn’t seen the dress online before I tried it on so there was no recollect about the stock pic.
Yeah. Tied in the front. Same view at the first photo, but taken at closer range.
From the side to show where it hits under the arm. I was a 34C, but am currently breastfeeding. I imagine I’m bigger than that at the moment, thank youuuu fenugreek seed. It totally works, btw, if you need help generating more milk.
I like a v-neck, but when I saw the collarless style, this just did nothing for me. I don’t think this dress needs a collar. It’s that Marilyn Monroe white dress silhouette that I feel like I look good in. It reminds me of a black dress I had that I wore once. That dress wasn’t floaty. This dress is floaty, but I still wasn’t impressed. I will say that it’s probably very pretty in white and also I think I would need petite in it. It would probably make a world of difference for fit. I would expect the dress to fit closer to the body and be shorter. Both would be improvements. The color was…well, cerise. I have a few things in the colors so I don’t get excited when I see it anymore. There are only so many opportunities I want to create where people will feel inclined to slow for the cone zone. Kwim? Namely that martinee trench (irl pics). I ordered the P6 and it was a huge improvement over the regular 4. It is looking really cute. And I got it for promo price + 30%, bringing it to $96. I just have to decide if modern red (cop to it JC, it’s orange!) is a color I want to entertain in an entire coat. Surely I can expect some commentary from the general public. Probably someone in their pajamas asking me what I’m wearing. I’d have to be in the mood for chit chat when I wear that.
Have you tried the Elinor dress? Have high hopes for it? Not interested…?
