The Good and the Bad

I can't seem to help myself with regards to J Crew. It's hard for me to give up on them despite their current lack luster offerings. Holidays is one of the things J Crew has done really well in the past so I had hopes for the new arrivals. Breathlessly, I went to the web site.

These beauties are the Sloan Plaid d'Orsay flat with bow. Yes, they are pricy at $168 but I jumped on line to order them at once. Unfortunately, they are sold out in all sized but 12. I'll keep stalking these though. Perfect with wool pants and a cashmere sweater for holiday fun. They also have a pretty pump in the same bright plaid but with an almost 4 inch heel, they are not in my plans.

Now we come to the bad. I just have no idea who would wear these.

These are the Collection Ultra Wide Legged Pant in Italian Wool. They are $328 and the description does not state they are lined which leads me to think not. Maybe, and I do mean maybe, someone tall, thin and very long legged could pull this off with a sleek tucked in turtleneck and some high heels. They look awful with the sneakers the model is wear.

So, maybe there is hope for J Crew. However, I still think the prices are inflated as compared to quality. Have you seen the new roll out? What do you think!

  1. I tried on Banana Republic's version of these today. Noooo bueno. lol They seem to be very figure specific. I think it's the pleats.
