Little red (bow back) riding hood // J.Crew Factory puffer review

bow back red flare party dress

I wanted to share a few more photos of this bow-back dress, which has just been re-stocked in all sizes (Update: for some reason page just became “not available” – maybe it’ll be back up in a bit!). It’s on backorder until after the holidays, but makes a darling cocktail dress for year-round. I’m wearing an XS regular…it looked very high-waisted on the model so I had hope, and sure enough it’s petite-friendly! Measurements are: 12.25″ across the waist, 13.5″ from top to waistline, and 32.5″ total length. It does come pretty wrinkled, but you can iron it at home on medium heat inside-out. The dress is fully lined, with a double lining at the skirt plus hidden tulle layer to help hold the fit & flare shape.

I also snapped a few photos of this Factory puffer coat below before sending it back (as you guys know, I got the faux fur hooded version reviewed here instead). For those who don’t care for the furry hood, I thought this is a steal for a puffer coat that fits a petite frame. There’s just a few remaining in petite sizing so don’t miss out if you wanted this!

Unlike the J.Crew regular wintress coat which I thought ran small with short sleeves, I found this to fit true to size with room for layering. The sleeve length was also amply long enough for the “thumb holes” to comfortably reach and hook over my thumbs. The hood is removable, and the pockets are lined in cozy fleece with snap button closures.

And one last picture of this red dress from another angle (ps – my pearlized statement necklace is 50% off today. They make great little gifts for friends!) ~
