J Crew’s side-zip varsity dress (SP14, A1979, $98) comes in black and heather grey, XXS – XL.
ETA: Saw it marked $39.99 in-store on 4/24
Size S – There’s been a lot of discussion about this one on The Mothership, so I definitely wanted to review it. Here it is. I wish I’d taken the black in to try as well, but I got distracted when I saw it. The dres looks like it might be thick of heavy, but the fabric has a nice fluidity to it. I wouldn’t say it swishes when you move. It just doesn’t sit there like an elongated sweatshirt. Thumbs up on that.
Fit was ok. I’ve looked a little better in this silhouette at J Crew and other stores. It looked like a nightgown in this color. It probably wouldn’t be so bad in the black. I do think the cut is very, very straight. Tall girls will be happy that it’s on the longer side. I’m 5’2″.
Pic of the side zip at the hem. It’s quite long. Longer than on the anchor dress from 2011 (?). Yes, that’s the misty fog floral popover. TTS to just a hare tight in my usual 6. Will be reviewing another day. You can see the popover on J Crew Is My Fav Store.
