I haven't been wowed by J. Crew recently, but Madewell, on the other hand, has been impressing me A LOT. If i didn't control myself, I would buy something every time I stepped into their store. Recently they launched a collaboration with Alexa Chung, which initially didn't excite me as I figured all the designs would be best suited to someone skinny like her (and not like me, heh-heh), but I couldn't resist trying some stuff anyway. Boy, was I wrong about the fit!
This Alexa Chung Betty Tea dress is extremely flattering on, and I really didn't think it would be. I knew immediately I was going to buy it. And coincidentally, the very next day as I was reading some blogs, I saw this photo of Rachel Bilson wearing the same dress in a different colorway. I like the navy as well, but I'm glad I purchased the cream one.
