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. What is everyone thinking about the Denim Vest for fall? I've been obsessed w it lately, but I feel like I'm too old to wear one, and it's kind of a stretch for me style-wise. I already have a Denim Nolita and a White Nolita and I dearly love them. I'm wondering if a denim vest is too trendy and the trend has already passed me by, and if it's too much "look" for me anyway.

    1. Hi ruffles - I'm not a denim vest person, but I did see an older JC catalog image (2010, maybe) that looked cute - the model was wearing the denim vest under a tweed blazer. It showed the denim without being too much look. I'll see if I can find a picture.

    2. Okay, if you Google "jcrew behati prinsloo" and look at the images, it's like the 5th one on the first row. It doesn't seem to want to fully focus on my computer, but it's big enough that you get the general idea.

    3. Hi silver_lining, thx! Ah those 2010 images are gorgeous. The denim vest looks really good peeking out of a tweedy jacket - a little more refined.

      Great eye, as always :)

    4. Doesn't it seem like a denim vest under a tweed jacket would be awfully hot? I guess if you worked in a very cool (as in chilly) environment...

  2. Hello all, I styled a few Jcrew shoes, dress and necklaces Here
