JCrew round 2- Rumi and Shoreline Stripe Dresses

Good morning!

Two more JCrew reviews for you- because you know I can't walk into a dressing room empty handed. Even at a way to high for me price point ($118), I snagged the Rumi dress on my way towards the back. Why? Because of this gorgeous in store only violet color!

I grabbed a size 4. It looks good in the pictures, but I remember wanting to size down at the time. This is a definite sale watch item. It's a tad low cut and high hemmed for the work place, but I could see myself walking around the city in this with a cute pair of brown leather sandals all summer! The tie waist hits just under the rib cage, making your legs look just a little longer (and leaner!) than they really are.

I wish the pictures did the color justice. It's such a vibrant purple. LOVE.

Next up was the Shoreline Stripe Dress. Adorable, but again- not for $78.

I grabbed an xsmall here due to the sizing (xxsmall-xlarge), and could definitely go up to the small since the dress fit very close (the top should blouson- and well. It simply didn't). The adjustable straps are great, but you're stuck going strapless here since it's essentially a long tank top. With no lining, I'm going to wait until this hits the $40 mark.

The heat is supposed to be more bearable today, but it's already steamy! I need to find some summer dresses stat!


  1. Thanks for the reviews! :)

    I am glad that you posted that you did these reviews over at JCA! You have a great blog here! (And it is fab that we have similar body types--I can purchase with confidence something that looks good on you knowing that it will suit me--yay!)

  2. Yay! I'm glad it helps :) a little side note- I adore your blog (it inspires a few shopping trips) and love seeing "real" body types. It's so much easier getting a gauge on clothes from another woman than the lovely JC models. Thanks for stopping by!
