In general, things from J Crew do not fit me. Today, I saw some things in the window and went in anyway, even though I was pretty sure I would strike out. But I found this dress. On sale, no less. Perfect for traveling and teaching--just add a cardigan.
A week or so ago I went to MaxStudio.com, a store that I always pass and sigh as I see all the little dresses I want to buy but can't fit in or afford. Apparently, there was a tear in the space-time continuum and I slipped into a world where I could fit into and afford their dresses. I took 3 dresses into the dressing room and all 3 were very flattering. I couldn't afford all 3, but I did get these 2.
This dress in a really bright green. It's so freaking cute!
Sundress in blue. The length is perfect (not too short) and with one of the cardigans from my stable, I wore it to church last week and felt very comfortable.
