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. A couple outfit ideas here.

  2. I grabbed the cargo pencil skirt on a pop back yesterday. It has 100% 5 star reviews and sold out quick. I'm pretty short (5'3"). Is this going to look dowdy? Is wearing it with wedges going to look really '90s (been there done that)?

    I guess I'll have to try it on. I mostly just wanted to see what the hype was about. Ha!

  3. Some new boards getting started on JC's Pinterest page - March style guide here and NYFW Fall/Winter 2015 here. The March style guide has no images, but says the next rollout will be Wednesday, 2/18.

    1. Thanks for the info, silver_ lining. I'm waiting for new arrivals to use my rewards. So I guess we have til 3/15 to use them.

      What is everyone doing w their rewards this time?

    2. Wow, online roll-out next week? I was expecting it to happen on the last Wednesday of the month....
      Does anyone have any images shared by their VPS? Or an advance copy /images of the March style guide?

      Yes, NYFW for J.Crew on Tuesday, the 17th.

      Lame the rewards expire on 3/15. Planning to use mine on a navy Regent blazer w/ Catbird rings...unless something juicy is rolled out next week.

  4. 40/50% off sale is back, code WEEKENDMUST. Start dialing for those price adjustments....

  5. WellFedFred, called the new promo already. But just want to mention if you are looking for a Downing Tote, now is the time. They are showing up in the Sale Section as select colors $129.99-$136.00 Extra 40% off with code WEEKENDMUST and in the Spring Picks as select colors $129.99–$136.00 25% off with code WEEKENDMUST. Did a test check out and the Warm Taupe priced $81.60 and the Cocoa - $77.99. Maybe a glitch while they switch over the promo.
