I have shared my love of JCrew’s Emmaleigh dress previously. I immediately fell in love with it when I first saw it and it fits like a dream (the colour is also gorgeous though it does come in others if lilac isn’t your thing). As with most items I buy, I couldn’t wait for an occasion to wear it and one arose, thankfully, only about a month later (I couldn’t have stood waiting much longer and may admit, under duress, that I may have put it on just to wear around the house a couple times and feel pretty). This is one dress that I suggest you should all check out. I see myself wearing it all the time, especially when I start teaching my undergrad course.
