Adventures in Modifying a J. Crew Sophia Silk Tricotine Gown – Part 8

The other day I found some J. Crew shoes that, in the Pale Gold color, would go with the modified gown well.  They are called Paige Metallic Braided Flat Sandals and are on “sale” now at jcrew.com.

Adventures in Modifying a J. Crew Sophia Silk Tricotine Gown – Part 6

March 19, 2009

I’d like to talk briefly about the color of the J. Crew Sophia Silk Tricotine Dress.  On J. Crew’s website the gown looks whiter than in non-professional digital camera pics on other websites.  I think in bright or natural light this gown does look close to off-white or light ivory.  Even against the whitest white in person, this gown looks off-white to ivory.  However in some pics it comes out looking more like a dark ivory.  I think this is due to the creamy yellow undertones in the fabric.  I would say that if you wanted your gown to look white and will be using it in a poorly lit indoor area, you’d want to go with something other than the ivory silk tricotine.  My other advice is, if color really matters to you, purchase the gown with a return policy and bring it to the venue in whatever light will be typical throughout your event and take lots of pictures so that you can have an ideal of how it will look both in person and in photographs.  Personally I love the color as is.  It goes very well with my olive undertoned skin.
