    Has anyone seen this dress in person?

    I'm thinking of using it as a bridesmaid dress in this colour:

    But I'm wondering if it's too casual. It says it's "Cotton/modal rayon/spandex" which sounds like t-shirt fabric to me but I wasn't sure.

        I can't be sure, but I saw one like it in the retail full-line store. It was very cute! I was looking at it to wear when I was getting my hair done. I thought it would be cute in pics. Plus, it wouldn't mess up my hair or make-up. Call your local j-crew store and see if they have it in stock. I used to work for j-crew in college and many stores would get items in for you to try on, before you order on-line! Hope this helps! Good luck:)

          I'm in Canada so we have no local J Crew stores.

          I'm okay with it being not as 'bridal' as most bridesmaid dresses. It's just that since it was listed in the beach cover-up section I worry about it being too beachy. And that if the guys are in khaki's and short sleeved button up shirts then the girls will look too under-dressed.

              I like it and think it would be great. Your wedding is whatever you want to be. Keep that in mind.

                  I'm sure this dress will work for many people, it looks sooooo cute! I did try it on because I desperately wanted to minimize my packing for my key west trip and thought buying this in several shades would be awesome since the dress is so versatile. However, no matter how I styled the dress, it was not a great look for me. I am 5' and 3/4" (I know I should just round up!) and I think I'm too short for the dress. However, I do think this would work for those who are a few inches taller. It is a very casual and laid back look, but you should do whatever you want to do for YOUR wedding. Plus, everyone would totally be able to wear this again...most likely the next day! Good luck!

                    it's cute, i tried it on.... but decided against it because i thought i could get it cheaper at forever 21. of course j crew would be better quality

                      No, you don't need to round up. Us short girls all understand that size does matter, even if that means parts of an inch

                      BTW, I was 5' 1/2" for the longest time and then I grew to 5' 1" (must be all that time spent soaking my feet in fertilizer - LOL)
