A Glimmer of Hope: J.Crew's Holiday Roll Out

There may be hope yet, peeps, for J.Crew. I'm going to go on the record and say that Holiday 2010, though not 100% fabilis, is a standout compared to the rest of the year. I may just want to buy a few things full-price. I haven't said that for 11 months, so this is a day that may just be my turning point. It's like that scene from the first Sex in the City where Miranda and Steve have to meet on the bridge. She's hoping he's there, he's hoping she's there, and then... well, you know the rest. Let's hope there's a glimmer of that hope for the Crew et moi.

*Cue the Al Green music!

Dusted Sequin Shift Dress, $275
Perhaps I've been watching one too many episodes of Boardwalk Empire, but this dress is a fabilis, fabilis option for a Holiday Party. I find it tres speakeasy. With hair done in a loose, side-done chignon and red lips, this is something I would consider. I also believe it's Collection. Always an added plus for a J.Snob.

Starry Night Cardigan, $128
I know we've seen (and own) a plethora of sequined cardigans, but I like this one for the jacket effect, and the dreamy chiffon at the edges. I also like the three-quarter sleeves and the punk way the model's styled with just black moto pants and a grey tee. I would want to wear it with a white tee, those moto pants, and a pair of fab heels for a sit-down party, or slouchy and flat moto boots if I'm expected to stand all night.
This, peeps, is wearable. Finally.

THIS is wearable?

Really, now. Really. This, peeps, is being sold as wearable. This is something I am supposed to covet. In my humble opinion, if I was 15, and Urban Outfitter's website was down, and I was desperate for an outfit that was different, I would still despise this. This is what I get for not paying attention to the website for a few months. I get this. I don't even know how to describe this outfit, but I can tell you, this is probably the most flattering angle. & there are a lot of outfits like this on J.Crew these days. I wouldn't touch it with 40% off. I wouldn't touch this if Charlotte Russe made a knock-off for $24.99. & $248 for this skirt alone, peeps? Do you know what I can get at Ann Taylor for $248? Lots, peeps, lots. & the Hubs wouldn't make fun of it, either. Well... the hubs could. But for damn sure, he would make fun of me less for a teeny fashion faux pas at Talbots or ATL before I don this number.
