Expensive, but oh so worth it. I love me some JCrew. What colors did you decide on since you didn’t go with gray?

It won’t help a lot but if you are a teacher or a student you can get a 15% discount… they are beautiful

Oh that dress is so lovely, but I agree; Jcrew is just too expensive for me.  I wish I could afford it though.  Their clean lines and simple designs make me swoon.

Yah I’m planning on using the short dresses in the same fabric so I checked into being able to use the discount on that and they said it was fine.  Also, sometimes they put out 20% coupons that can be applied to the bridal section (I know they do one around the holidays, not sure if they do another one in the Spring).  Expensive, but I think so rewearable and beautiful!

I love yellow, I think I am going with yellow/gray or yellow/green.

J Crew is expensive because they are really high quality. The clothes I have from there have lasted years and years!

I’d be psyched if I had to get a bridesmaid dress from there – the styles are so beautiful and simple that i’d actually be able to wear the dress again!

Love J Crew.  I don’t think they are expensive, but I would have a hard time asking my bridesmaid to spend $365 for her dress.  Though, I kind of think the bride should buy the bridesmaid dresses anyway. 

The dress is stunning!!

Yea, they are! I was wondering why everyone on here recommends them because they are so expensive! Pretty stuff, but I can’t afford it…even with the 15% discount!

Someone on the Bee has posted about JCrew’s big warehouse sale at their headquarters in Lynchburg, VA. Not sure when it is but you could always call and see if they tell you.

OP have you checked to see if they make the color in a shorter version? I got the same dress from J. Crew online but the short version in “espresso” and it was only $57 after taxes and my 20% off coupon.
