Size 6 - chest = 37", waist 29.5"
Size 8 - chest = 38", waist 30.5
Size 6 - Festival green is very striking. What's great about this cut is the waist isn't too high. That's a big problem in many of the other dress silhouettes from J Crew.
The fabric isn't too dressy, imo. I think it looks more formal in the shirred maxiskirt ($119.99) (irl pic).
I like the idea of a skinny belt on the dress. If I don't want to wear a belt, the long necklace creates a nice line down the torso. Check out the dress on 1 More Shopping Blog in green and in black, on A JC Shopping Habit, on Ema and on One Too Many Closets.
