J. Crew Tie-Neck Dress in 365 Crepe (+ J. Crew Extra 40% Off Sale)

J. Crew’s Tie-Neck Dress in Italian Wool was one of my favorite purchases last fall, and while I was happy to see the design brought back earlier this year in a “365 crepe” in three colorways, I was disappointed by the polyester blend, which cheapens an otherwise classic design. I kept this dress because I missed the return window, and it’s certainly wearable, but I would’ve happily paid more for a true wool crepe.

Fit-wise, I found that it runs half a size small in the bodice, though online reviews seem to suggest that it’s more true to size. If you are about my size, the dress in size 00p measures 12″ at the waist, 15″ from underarm to underarm, and 35.75″ in length.
