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. Hi JCA's - my 2009 Icon Trench finally bit the dust. It was a good run, and I'd like to replace it, but my wallet is cringing at the price. Does anybody have a 20% code that they're not going to use? silver.lining.jca at gmail

    1. What size do you need? I think my size 0 is just chilling in my closet as a "I probably show own this, but I don't actually wear it" sort of thing.

    2. Hi Monica - I think I need a 6. My old trench is a 4 and all the reviews say it runs small in the arms/shoulders. Thanks for the offer, and I know what you mean about the "I probably should own this" piece. I've got one or two of those. ; )

    3. I replaced mine with a shorter less yellow khaki trench from Banana Republic Factory - it was less than $50 and I'm very happy with it as an interim replacement. I loved my icon but it doesn't fit anymore. I picked it up on promo + % off so definitely not looking to pay the FP! I hope you're able to track one down - they're hard to come by on eBay, etc.

    4. Hi Anne - I've tried a lot of other brands over the last year knowing I'd eventually have to replace this one. It makes me feel like Goldilocks...none of them has been just right! : )
