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. I have no blog, but just discovered Polyvore. I have a few sets up that may be of help to someone.

  2. What's with the puffer vests? I got the buffalo plaid one at 30% off a few weeks ago and want the white excursion vest, but it's been excluded from every sale. I don't get it!

    1. Greetings Stray Cat - I ordered the Bright Ivory Excursion Vest the day before Thanksgiving. J.Crew's promo - either 30% off full-price items or 30% off everything (they all run together in December it seems) - applied to that item at the time. The fine print on the current offer indicates that select women's jackets and outerwear are excluded which is a B.U.M.M.E.R. I imagine outerwear is such a big holiday gift item, they can get away with hit. Jennifer

  3. Hi JCAs. Two reviews here - the merino side-slit sweater & Hugo Guinness dazzling sweater.

  4. Some outfit ideas over at Mainly oldies paired with rain boots. Let me know what you think

  5. Review of the silk fringe scarf in pink & an in-store only, metallic trimmed scarf on 1060 Pairs.

  6. I styled the Ski Sweater, as well as other current pieces, on my blog Partial to Pink.

  7. Some styling ideas for various J.Crew and Madewell items in this post.
