Altuzarra for J Crew Patricia Dress (XS)
I normally only take photos when my daughter is asleep but I wanted to return these things in the afternoon and had to take photos in the morning. The blue crinkly stuff beneath me is my little princess all dressed up and vying for some camera time. Hilarious. My first reaction when putting on this dress was - ugh, chain gang! But, the shape of it is lovely. Really flattering on the body and yet relaxed and comfortable at the same time. I love the little fabric pieces that look like epaulets on the shoulders and the nice thick cotton. This dress also seems to have a slight waist unlike the maritime. The stripes are still a bit bold for me - the blue is VERY dark like a black and I think I would prefer it in a slightly lighter color. This dress appears to be sold out now.
Collection Luxe Silk Crepe Blouse (size 2) in Neon Azalea
I feel like this top has been around forever and yet never goes on sale. I also think it's funny that they only offer it in two colors. NEON and NEUTRAL. I don't think I'd pay $200 for a neon shirt. The color is pretty true in these pictures. I think this shape is exactly the same as the Lucinda blouse from last year. The silk is certainly MUCH heavier and has that feeling almost like the Elodie blouse = a sort of sueded silk. I love it and if they came out with other colors and something less than $200 I would be tempted.
Anyone else own these lovely pieces?
