  35. Hi, I'm looking for the metallic lulu peeptoe heels from last year. I normally wear a 6 from J. Crew, but I've read several reviews that these shoes run rather big. Not sure if I would need a 5.5 (I've never worn a 5.5 before). I have the fleur peeps in a 6, and they fit great. Any suggestions? Does anyone have the metallic lulu peeptoe heels in a 5.5 or 6, never been worn? Thanks girls!!

  36. Hoping that anyone who is cleaning out their closet for fall might run across these sweaters:

    First, pictured, is a featherweight merino from fall 2006 item number 78776, on inside side seam, in a size small or medium the color is a robins egg blue.

    Second a wellesley cabled zip-up hoodie from Holiday 2006 item #78609 in what was called heather mushroom a light heathered brown in size medium. I have a picture if you think you have it.

    If anyone has either one please contact me at
    I would be so grateful if I could replace these sweaters. Thanks.

  39. I'm looking for a couple of different items-

    -Cynthia tunic shirt in XS (any color but white)
    -Piper Tank in Size 0 (any color but yellow or navy)
    -Madison/Claire chino pants in Size 8 (color light gray)
    -Square neck tissue top in Size XS (any solid color)

    5) Marbella mesh bikini, S. Item 16545.

    * If anyone has the Marbella bikini (both top and bottom) and would be interested in trading for the polka-dot bikini from earlier this season, I have one NWT in the yellow (sour lemon?) color in size S. It is the twist-front bandeau and the glamour style bottom. I would be interested in either style of the Marbella for a trade as the lemon color of the polka-dot bikini is just not working on me, and would prefer an XS top and S bottom but could do a S in both.


  41. Looking for Lulu flats in cloud size 9.5. The 9 is way too small (I wear a 9-9.5).

    Does anyone have comments about how the flats fit?

    Also would love to find:

    Satin Rosette capri sandals sz 9 in the rose or grey colors.

  42. Still on the hunt for a JC Esplanade knit skirt 14133 dark slate, XS or S, EUC fine
    getfreshpress at

  43. Mags I agree the Lulu flats fit small. I'm a 9.5 and got a 9.5 and there was no way they were even going to stretch to fit. I didn't try a 10 though to see because it was a JCA deal on here. I've also heard the Lulu heels run big... and be curious to hear other comments because I'd love a pair myself but am a little gun shy because of the sizing.

  44. Hello JCAs,

    OT- I am going to be in the Philly area, and will be going to see the new arrivals tomorrow evening at the King of Prussia store. The PS there mentioned that if three people want to come with me and we all spend at least $125, then we all get 20% off our total purchase. I don't know how many JCAs in the Philly area up for going tomorrow evening at 7 pm (I know it's short notice), but I wanted to open it up to anyone else in case they want first (and discounted ;) ) dibs on new arrivals.

    If you and any of your friends are interested, email me at love2shop4bags AT yahoo DOT come so I can give the PS of how many people to expect.

    Hope to see you there tomorrow evening around 7 pm!

  45. Looking for:

    Rip-Stop from summer 2007 or 2008. Cargo pants, skirts, shorts or capris. Sizes 4-6. New or used, any color but yellow.

    I wear these for gardening and other outdoor activities (hence no yellow as the bugs like it too much). Thanks to my friend's young puppy most everything I had is nipped and holey now. :( Would like some new pairs if anyone wants to get rid of theirs.

  49. Mags: Hi there! I also own a pair of the Lulu ballet flats. I found that I was able to stick with my normal size. (Also, the length of the sole of the Lulus matched the lengths of all my size 9 in J.Crew ballet flats.)

    However, I remember reading comments from some JCAs who found it was better for them to go with a half a size up- and I could easily understand why. I think this is because the fit of the toe does seems tight, because of the leather. It's a bit stiff in the toe area, compared to the other fabrics J.Crew uses for their ballet flats.

  50. I'm looking for a Cotton Denim Safari Jacket in Small. If you've got one you're willing to part with, please let me know at Thanks!

  51. Thanks to you all who helped with the Lulu sizing, I really appreciate it! Sounds like a 9.5 is the way to go first, then size up if needed. I do like a good bit of toe room, since I'm on my feet a lot at work.

    I can wear a 9 in driving mocs and regular flats, so go figure!

  52. I forgot that I'd LOOVE either the wool or flannel roses dress (abstract or golden). Not sure if I'd need a 2 or a 0, but if you have either dress you can part with let me know. I see them on e-bay but they are nearly full price. Used is fine.
