I was looking through the J. Crew Fall 2012 preview since I hadn't checked them out in a while and I was pleasantly surprised by this little number.
For one, I just think it is so cute. I love a good illusion neckline and this one features floral appliques and a jewel neckline with sleeveless styling over a gathered, surplice sweetheart bodice sitting on the natural waist. The skirt is a nice and narrow A-line. This gown is very true to the J. Crew aesthetic and despite that illusion and floral applique neckline, it is clean and minimalist.
