JCA "Help Style Me!" Weekly Post

This is the weekly "Help Style Me!" post, where we can share items we are having trouble putting outfits together with. Elaine (in this post) says it best, "You know, that thing you bought because you love it and you keep pulling it out and then putting it away without wearing it?"

Please share your J.Crew item (either that you own or are thinking about getting) that you would love help creating an outfit with.

Also, please help out by offering your styling advice. Feel free to include links to your blog (where you incorporated that piece) or to Polyvore (where you showcased an outfit with that piece). Thanks in advance! :)


  1. Colors to wear with the factory printed pencil skirt in black plum? general color ideas and specific j.crew shades are both appreciated :)

  2. I want to know what shoes I should wear with my hammered silk flambe dress. That pink is BRIGHT. So do I go nude... metallic... black? I just don't know!

  3. @J.CrewJD: I think a nude pump or a strappy gold sandal would look pretty hot with that dress! The model in the picture has black strappy shoes on, which I guess would also work, but I think they might look a little clunky on a "real" person, if you know what I mean. Holy smokes though, that's a HOT dress!

  4. teeny84, thank you! I think you're right about the black strappy shoes looking... off. On a normal person, anyway :) when I get it (it's coming in a couple days!) I will just have to try a few things. I don't even have any gold strappy sandals, I will have to find a pair.


Dear J.Crew Aficionadas & Aficionados: Please feel free (and encouraged) to share your thoughts and opinions. :) However, please note that this is still a personal blog. So comments that are considered inappropriate (e.g. obscene, racist, homophobic, personal attacks, rude, and just plain mean) will be removed.

And now back to J.Crew! :)
