I'm not sure why I'm struggling so much with S/S dresses, but I really am. None of these dresses are styled with jewelry or shoes, I just put on generic nude pumps.

1. J Crew cotton ladder stitch dress. The color is called sea spray. It looks mint green or sea foam green to me. I suppose a fancy name makes it more special? Whatever? I mostly like it and it's a sheath. The cotton fabric doesn't have much stretch and my hips aren't very wide so it wrinkles funny around the hips, plus there are pockets there. Same thing around the chest area. Is that a deal breaker?
2. J Crew sleeveless tweed dress. Navy. I think this one is okay too. Once again its a sheath. The fabric is stretchier here so there are no puckers. Same size as dress 1.
3. J Crew Knotted Maxi Dress. In case you can't tell, it's grey This one is tissue thin but I like it also. Good for the beach, and days I feel like I should be at the beach but have to work anyways. See how the skirt puckers in the front? I guess it looks like that on the model too. (FYI, it may be a bit short in flats also, but that's often the case with Maxi's on a tall girl)
4. J Crew Side Slit maxi tank dress. Neon Sea Mist. I like the color which is happy but not pea soupy, leprechaunish, or four leaf cloverish. It goes great with my glasses. It's a bit shapeless but may not be too bad? Maybe?
5. A Vince dress that I was looking forward to and thought I was going to love. The drawstring waist is low, it lands just above my hips so the fabric ballons out in a funny way. You can kind of see it here. What do you think?
