J.Crew Super 120's Suiting Dress

I don't think I realized how fantastic J.Crew is until I noticed that almost every blogging bride uses their clothing for inspiration. I wish I could remember who clued me in to this dress, but I can't. So if you are reading this, you rock!




It's the 3-quarter length sleeves with buttons on the cuffs that won me over, and it's made of wool so it should keep my best girls a little warmer during October. Finding modest dresses is enough of a struggle, I don't want to resort to adding a shrug or cardigan on top of a strapless dress if I don't have to. The answer just might be The Super 120's Suiting Dress. I gasp at the $195 price tag, and I know the girls will too, but who wouldn't want to wear this again? Seriously. I think when I ask the girls to be my bridesmaids I am going to give them some monetary compensation to cover the cost of the dresses. Alas, a dream such is that is part of the Ideal Wedding Budget Scheme. We will see how the budget creation goes.

ally-I would love to have my bridesmaids in this dress, in black. yummy. I guess we will just have to order one and see how it fits. We will put it on someone curvy like my sister to see how it looks.

kelli-I wish I was rich for a lot of reasons. But this dress is definitely making its way to the top of the list.

shay-I really doubt we are ever going to find anything we like more than this dress. Let's search the entire Internet to look though. Do you think I can get one too?
