Random Question


When did J. Crew start doing the elastic waistband? I was thinking how cute this skirt was and then I saw the elastic waistband . . . might be okay for cotton, but for silk taffeta? No thanks.

It looks so disco and shiny.

I agree the elastic waistband isn't too hot either.

That is absolutely horrible!

Bad, bad, bad, but then again I think their whole fall collection is not-so-cute.

Definitely not a fan, which is good since I'm boycotting them until the site's fixed!

As much as J Crew cost, they really should give you more than elastic! Most of their clothes are adorable.

Oh that is horrible! What a disappointment. Good call on checking the back of it, who knew!

Hi....got your sweet note yesterday! I have a pair of gold sandals that look similar to the J. Crew sandals. I'll do a post on them.

I have one just like this but in cotton (from the jcrew outlet) and looks cute but still "bubblish". I cannot imagine how it can look good in silk taffeta...ewww
