This is a print that has gathered a few raves per my Personal Stylist. The Photo Floral reminds me of the Punk Floral from last Spring.

The style comes in a dress and a skirt. The dress felt like a sturdier cotton, but it was too short so I passed on it. I tried on the skirt. A quick review below:
Pros: very cute print, fresh and light, can be paired with whites, greens, blues, etc. It’s all cotton but…
Cons: No lining!!! I felt a little too exposed and with the summer heat, there could be sweat spots which are unflattering. I’d recommend a slip if you are considering, or wearing now in Spring with cooler temperatures. Also, considering the very light cotton, I am not sure the unique print by itself justifies the full price… 😦
Material: 100% cotton, no lining
Fit: Runs large. My regular size was simply too puffy and the waist did not hold. I’d recommend to size down or go with your smaller skirt size at the Crew.
Sissi’s verdict: I’d say wait for sales, but I hear it’s been going fast like the Punk Floral from last season. Up to you, I’d wait for a discount.
Saw some new updates on Friday Dec. 27th 2013. While most look to be a slight variation of previous offerings, I am fond of two new prints: the Misty Fog and the Moonglow Paisley. J.Crew is offering each in dresses, tops and/or shorts (why not skirts 😦 ). I am personally drawn to the tops…See for yourself below. Collection Blouse in Misty Fog
