Happy Holidays to All! :)

Dear J.Crew Aficionadas and Aficionados, a quick note to wish you all a wonderful & safe HOLIDAY season!!!


  1. Thanks, and happy holidays to you too, Alexis!

  2. Happy Holidays to you as well Alexis - thank you for making JCA what it is.

  3. Merry Christmas Alexis, to you and all those close to you. Thank-you so much for everything.

  4. Merry Christmas to Alexis
    Whose wonderful blog has been the nexus
    Of the gleeful and the grumpish
    Of the sylph-like and the plumpish
    And of me when I’m down in the dumpish.

    A sale, a code, a catalog find
    That barely covers my behind--
    Perhaps not quite what I had in mind?
    The breathless wait for new releases!
    The wonder of the perfect pieces!

    A season of forty shades of brown,
    Models hanging upside down,
    Dear Leader storming another town:
    We read about it all here first,
    JC addiction, JCA thirst!

    As we close another year,
    Thank you, Alexis, for your good will and cheer!

    Perusing final sale with dread,
    Merry Christmas from wellfedfred.

  5. Merry Christmas, Alexis and fellow JCAs! Thanks for all you to do make this such a wonderful, fun community.

  6. Thanks to Alexis for creating this web site and thanks to all of the others who participate. It's been very very helpful to me, I don't have much time to shop. Am I the only person who bought something on the J Crew web site today? :)

  7. Happy Holidays, Alexis! Thank you for all you do for us JCAs here -- Here's to another great year!

  16. Dear Alexis,
    Merry Christmas to you and your family! Thank you for another wonderful year, looking forward to many more.
    Happy Holidays!

  17. very nice, wellfedfred! I had a blast reading it!

  18. SHOPNOW for 30% off + free shipping on $150 (net subtotal after discount) has officially been posted to the site.

    It's good all the way thru Sunday, 1/2.

  19. The sale is really underwhelming. They are out of almost everything and the deals really aren't very special. I will skip this one. Does anyone else remember the December 26th J.Crew sales that REALLY were worthwhile? I miss those days...
    Thanks for this site Alexis. Have really enjoyed it this year!

  20. The American Observer, there have been daily updates until the past couple of days. Now that the holidays are over, there might be daily updates again. Except for 1/1, also a holiday. We shall see.

  21. Happy Holidays to everyone(& a wonderful little poem/carol wellfedfred!).

    I have a sizing question. I am looking at the downtown denim trouser & stretch bootcut on sale in tall. One comes only in 0 and the other in 2. I just learned that i am a 26 in gap jeans & the 2L in their black pants is a bit too big.

    Can anyone tell me if the cord stretchs? I'd love waist/rise measurements... But will i fit in the 2 denim trousers?? I can't find another company that makes that style... the 4 was much much too big with no shape to the thigh area.

  22. Thank you Alexis! Merry Christmas :)

  23. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

    Alexis, thanks so much for all you do!

    Marisa, every pair of cords and denim that I have bought from JC has stretched. HTH

  24. How long has the Candy Wrap dress been online? ( Are they putting up new arrivals or did I just miss it?

  25. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!
    Especially, much gratitude to all you do for this wonderful JCA community, Alexis!

    Wff: I enjoy all your lovely poems! You're truly talented!
