Sydney Cotton Poplin Dress - J. Crew

was $128.00 select colors $89.99 item 97372
Our easy, all-occasion dress tailored to fit in comfortable, crisp cotton—it's a wardrobe essential. The fitted bodice boasts a scoopneck with pleating at the front and back, and a slight A-line skirt with two sets of pleats also at the front and back. It's a great piece to dress up or down. Sleeveless silhouette. Non-adjustable straps. Side-seam pockets. Back zip. Fully lined. Falls above knee; 21" from natural waist. Import. Machine wash.

Quickly, because it's Father's Day and we're heading out for dinner and ice cream! yea!

I purchased this dress as a "ride along" to get free shipping on my Cruise Shorts, reviewed a while back. I LOVE the styling of the dress, especially as a girl who is inadequate at the top... if you know what I mean... as the top is very flattering!

Anyway, I bought this dress is my usual size 2, and would probably have preferred a 0... or it's just not meant for me, because the 0 might have been a bit snug in the waist.

I decided to return it today because I would probably prefer a color-color (instead of the light pewter) and the 2 was just too big for me in the bust area. With a little tailoring, I could have made it work, so if it's ever a $39.99 dress in the sale section... I'm sold! But for $89.99... this was a pass because of the fit. I am so proud of myself for returning a less-than-perfect item that I loved to death style-wise! I know I never would have worn it, since it just didn't fit me great!

**Bottom Line: I'll buy this again if it goes on sale more. Runs a big large.
