I purchased this Jay Godrey Rowell dress recently -- on sale, of course -- thinking it might be a few months before I could wear it. As you can see, the dress has long sleeves that go to the elbow, and it's made with a heavier, double-layer jersey, so it's definitely not ideal for hot summer days. Well, fortunately for me, the unseasonably cool weather meant I could break it out of my closet that much sooner.
This Jay Godrey dress is from the designer's Spring 2011 collection. I love the turquoise and chocolate brown colors together, as well as the simplicity of the color blocking style. Since the dress is several months old, I couldn't find it available online, but you can check out these other Jay Godfrey dresses, which I am just drooling over!
Side Note: SJP loves red and pink together, and this dress does a great job of combining two colors that seem to clash... but don't.
Of course, Chapin says I had better not buy any more dresses until 2012. I am really trying not to give in to my inner shopaholic, but she's very persistent!
