I am not a massive fan of J Crew. I do like their jackets and skirts but I have never met anyone who could make their pants/shorts/jeans work. I do like this dress. It comes in other colors but black looks best and classic. Perfect work, school, club, fundraiser dress. Wear with pointy toe pumps but not black, it gets too business like and severe; nude, snake or silver would be a better option. Red lip would nicely take it to evening with a small metallic clutch. And the price cannot be beaten even you need to use a tailor to make sure it fits perfectly.
