And Speaking of Shopping



This Definitely Falls into the Category of Impulse Purchase...

  1. It never even made it to the list.
  2. I can't wear it to work. (usually if I spend more than a certain amount on an item, I have to be able to wear it to work and on the weekend -- it's my rule...)
  3. It's not really something I would even typically buy...

But I loved it, and I bought it, and now I'm admitting it to you.

That felt good. Thanks.

p.s. it's not this short in real life.
p.p.s. gosh that model's legs are skinny...

it is EXACTLY what you should wear not-to-work! gorgeous and spare and just-right-wispy.

{you should've shown the back scoop...perfection.}

I love it...You can wear it in San Fran! I love shift style dress! Love it!

Joslyn said...

oooh amy...maybe i'll wear it to the party

karey -- yes the scoop back is what ultimately got me.

barchbo said...

Gorgeous! And you can wear it over trousers or jeans in the fall...

PS: I does look short!
PPS: I noticed the skinny legs before the dress!

Oh, that J.Crew. Gets me everytime. I love it and know you'll look gorgeous in it.

P.S. Who wants legs like that model's, anyway? They look like arms.

Elena said...

Could you wear it to work with some skinny capris or something underneath? Or is the back too reveling?
I'm all about rationalization...

Gorgeous, I love the back!

Joslyn said...

elena -- yes the back is what makes it not work for my office...unfortunately ;-(

Joanna Goddard said...

What about a plain cami underneath? Covers up the back and keeps it cute... (I love the Eloise [nylon and spandex] at Anthropologie; they have them every year.)
