Dress Till Your Heart’s Content

J Crew has just kicked off a "20% off all women's dresses" special -- so let's take advantage of it.  There are tons of styles, shapes, colors, and textures but, one of my all-round favorites is this Crinkle dupioni dress ($118.40).  Why you ask?

  • the textureof the dupioni lends itself to the informal Saturday grocery run and the slightly more dressy Sunday brunch
  • the drapey shift shape is ideal to cover up imperfections or, with a belt, highlight some assets
  • for now, wear a mock t-neck and tights -- for later, wear it as a dress or top with some heels or flats!
  • the length works great by itself now (with a pair of thicker tights) or bare-legged in spring with sandals
  • the three-quarter bell sleeves make it work for work but easily add a little less stuffiness to a girls night out
  • it comes in black forest and dove; and runs from size 0 to 14!
  • with the sale, the dress is $95!
