Here is my quick review on the Gap Jersey Maxi Dress. This dress comes in “jade stone” and “true black,” and is also available in three striped variations. Sizing ranges from Petite, to Regular, and Tall, from XS to XXL.
Likes: Soft, drapy material. Grecian-inspired pleating is pretty, and higher waistline elongates legs.
Dislikes: I’m on the fence about the length. Also, my chest can’t seem to fill out the pleated area.
Verdict: Unsure. Got this for 50% off. I’m probably keeping unless I find a more affordable version from F21/H&M.;
Here’s how the length looks with flats on. It’s more of an ankle-length dress than a full-length maxi, so it’s not maximum lengthening for the legs. However, the ankle length made it very easy to move around in – no tripping. See how the Petite XS looks on Cher, who is a little taller.
Flat Sandals: Miss Trish of Capri for Target (old). I collect these cute, affordable flats every year. Check out the adorable version for little girls this year. I would just cut the middle horizontal strap off. Sz 3 or 4 in little girls should fit like a womens 5 or 6.
In other shopping news, Khatu and I popped into Ann Taylor’s new “concept store” in Chestnut Hill, MA. The store is the same, but got a major face lift complete with easier-to-browse sections and pretty pretty chandeliers. I left with this striped boatneck tee that I am now in love with (marked down to $17.99). Outfit posts to come soon : )
