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! :)

  3. Quick question on sizing for Madewell. Anyone own the Billie boot? Does it run true to size?
    Same question on the J.Crew Aggie ankle boots. I really need a new pair of ankle boots and hate ordering them online. Let me know!

    1. I have the J. Crew Aggie boots. They run TTS. I wear 7.5 in the ballet flats and took 7.5 in the Aggie boots.

    2. The Billie boot from madewell runs so big! I went a whole size down and that NEVER happens.

  4. Are they comfortable? I know all boots take time to break in, but trying to not make an expensive mistake. :) And thank you for the feedback!

  5. I think I may use the bounce back card to finally pick up the beaded rose necklaces. I've been pining after both for months-- the white is on sale and the red is just about sold out now.

    Since it's close to the end of summer, I would love to hear how late into fall you think someone could wear these necklaces. Do you think this necklace is timeless enough to wear for the neck few years, or will it look dated? Do you think one color is more classic than the other? Or easier to pair with outfits?

    Thank you!

    1. I've only admired the necklaces through JC styling photos, but I'd like to try my hand at giving styling advice. Perhaps see if the white matches with any of your winter whites. That might make a nice combination to wear deep into the colder months since winter whites are such a refreshing trend right now. I think both necklaces will make great transitional pieces both into the fall, reminiscent of warmer summer days, as well as in the spring, anticipating the arrival of warmer weather. I don't mean my advice to be enabling, but if it is within your means and you really love the pieces, I think they are quite stylish and incredibly classic colors. For me, for a piece to have lasting value, I just really have to love it. That itself will determine if I keep wearing it, not whether other people think it is classic or stylish.

    2. Clotted creame--

      Thank you so much for the wonderful response. I think this is some great advice!

      I do really love both pieces and picked them up last week. My only concern is that the white seems to get dirty easily. Other than that, I am truly pleased! I wore the red this weekend and really enjoyed it.

      Thank you again for taking the time to post :)
