I have still, however, managed to eke out a couple of review post ideas and photos, so here goes.
I love this maxi, love the print.
Pros: cotton, lined, good modest neckline, machine washable.
Cons: no pockets, the skirt-border thing (what's the technical term for it, anyone?) is potentially dowdy, as is the elasticated waist.
Sizing: it appears that JCRew vanity sizing has taken a definite step forward this season and I am now squarely a 00 in all pants and dresses and possibly in knit tops. I stick to a size 0 in perfect shirts, though. I sized "down" to a 00 in this, having first tried a 0. See comparison side by side below. The size 0 was definitely more puffy and less flattering. Especially in the torso, if you're wearing the wrong size, it will puff up.
Verdict: I love the print, love the feel of the dress. I have styled it with a chambray shirt, for which, it turns out, the elasticated waist is perfect. Otherwise, the elasticated waist does my minimal hips no favours. Love. Keep.
