I stopped by J Crew today, first visit of the year, and saw a few new Resort items to try on. This is a tunic in the same fabric as the Maritime Dresses but it is more of a tunic and not a dress. There is a deep V-Neck requiring a tank underneath, a little bit shorter length and the sides don't have a zipper. This blue is a Small. The Ivory below is a Medium. The style # is 69609 and is priced at $78. The blue is BIN, blue indigo maybe? I do like the fit of the Small. The Ivory would be versatile now with colored leggings and a colored tissue Turtleneck and/or belted.
Next up is the Rosie Dress in Colorblock in a size 6. This is pretty short, even by my standards, so I'd recommend this as a tunic. The silk was pretty static-y and was snug in the shoulders and arms. The ruffled trim at the end of the sleeves is a little long. I think if it was just and inch or two it would look feminine but not girlie. I'll pass on this.
Lastly, is the Jules Dress in Scroll Print. The first image is a size 6 and the second is an 8. This fits like all the other Jules dresses and it seems that although the length bothers a lot of people there is only a size 2 left, not shipping until February.
This is truly a gorgeous print. I wish it would come out in a regular or Petite length skirt or a cardigan. The print on the sleeves match up to the print on the body of the dress. The side seams on both also match up pretty well too. The yellow is not as bright as my pictures show. There are side, not front pockets, and a back button at the top, no zipper anywhere.
Are you interested in any of these dresses/tunics?
Happy New Year! Have a Great Evening!
