We Need To Talk

I'm sorry.  I have tried so hard.  I really, really wanted it to work.  I have spent hours trying to find something I like about you anymore.  I just can't. 

J. Crew, we are breaking up.  You currently fill 1/2 of my closet.  You and I have been together since the beginning.  But, now your clothes make me frown.  You have changed.  Perhaps you are just having an identity crisis?  When you get out of your hippie-ish stage call me.  Okay?

(messy)

(dirty)

(homeless)

Maybe there are one or two things that I still like at your shop.  Okay.  I admit it.  But they cost $250.  And really J. Crew, if I'm going to drop $250 I will just call up Tory and tell her to send me the presh little tunic:



So, now that we've gotten that out of the way...I accidentally just purchased this little dress:



Sure wish it would get here in time for this:

J Crew has sucked at life lately. The only things I like in the catalog (when it comes) are the things in the Wedding shop. Totally getting my bridesmaids dresses from there, ps, if and when I get married! :) haha

I just bought some staple shorts from them, but you are right about most of their collection. It really surprised me!

OK i have never been a JCrew fan and i think the shorts in that first pic are hilarious. like really? my brothers dirty old sweatpants, conveniently in SHORTS size :) haha BUT I have to say I love the shorts in pic #2.. i'm a fan of dark short jean shorts and tho i will never buy anythign from jcrew including these shorts (for reasons other than the 3 you listed) i very much appreciated this post :) hehe

What is up with J. Crew lately?! Everything is sloppy looking and in boring colors! I did just see a cute pink and green paisley blazer in their new catalog today...but it's like $250!

I hate to admit this..but I'm sort of a fan of the first shirt. Doesn't mean I'd pay a ridiculous price for it though. That's my main problem with J. Crew - far too expensive for what they're putting out!!

Love the dress you bought though..very cute!

I really did think you were exagerating about the new stuff... but now I see that you were so right!! BLECH! Good thing I only shop at TJMaxx and Marshalls these days ;)

You come highly recommended by my Trish The Pink and Prepply Lilly Girl. Can't wait to have time to spool through your archives, but let's get this party started, you have a new follower!
I'm Lisa The Bumpkin, not so much a bumpkin other than geographically speaking, it's a pleasure to meet you, come on over and visit me at the swing.

I'm right there with you. JCrew is really disappointing. :(
I go and look and haven't found much these days. I was excited to shop there a couple weeks ago... only left with a necklace and headband. How sad.
Foxfield?!?! I've heard about it, but have yet to go. I think it's like our Gold Cup, except on a race track? I love your dress you got! Have fun this weekend!! :)
XOXO- Vy
BTW- tagged you for an award!!

You are so right! I am about to write them an email asking why their models look like bums in hot pink socks and aqua shoes! What's up with this!?!?!
