Is this a case of extreme photoshopping?
Could this be the same dress below? I hope not...
But I am seriously afraid it is, because the photographs below proof how the real life orange translates to purple when you apply a blue filter:
|Orange pants are OK|
|but purple pants seem more 'luxe'|
I don't like how they do it. But that's not the only problem with the dress.
This dress has been in my B& M for some time. I always walked straight pass it since in my mind it was a tunic, a beach cover up or something like that, and I don't need any of those. I only wanted to try it after I saw the catalog image, since many JCAs seemed to be interested. I am afraid many of us imagined a different dress from that catalog picture.
|I am not sure about all those apples|
|You cannot let it down because of the stitching|
|$150 would make you think it is a dress|
Ema has a great review of this dress HERE, check it out, she has some other interesting items as well.
Do you like this dress or are you disappointed? Do you think this is the dress from the catalog image?
I tried it before in 6 and it felt very tight in the chest, so I thought I'd give it a try in an 8, especially since this seems to be my J.Crew dress size this year.
Now the chest fits (barely) but the bottom is huge. Whitney called it 'burlap sack' and she is so right.
|It fits in chest...|
Maybe if you are pear shaped this would be much better fit? But it would still be a wrinkled mess at the end of the day, I am afraid. And it is scratchy.
|The color is gorgeous.|
|Not for me, I am afraid :(|

Oh well. I still have my white Attache, in superfine cotton, from last year.
Circle eyelet dress
Some sizes of this dress are waitlisted until 07.09.2012. Is it worth the wait?
When I saw it on the hanger it did not look too promising. But I have been proved wrong in my judgement. I had a strong suspicion that I would look absolutely laughable but I am not easily deterred once I decide to do something. Did I detect a doubtful look on the SA's face? What does she know? It may be gorgeous once on...
|But she was right :(|
I tried size 8 and this would be a correct size, if I wanted to be so charitable (no way!).
|Goodness gracious! You have gotten sooo big my dear!|
|Was this an inspiration?|
Please J.Crew, if we are talking doll outfits, how about at least looking for some cooler, more fashion forward dolls?
|Chole (13 inch Les Cheries Doll)|
But maybe if you are shorter, younger and size 2 this dress would work? Maybe it is just not for me.
If you want to see the dress I actually liked a lot, check out my review of Ralph Lauren's dress in my previous post.
***How do you feel about catalog photoshoping?
Do you like any of the dresses?
