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. Does anyone have the courier shirt from Madewell? I ordered the blue plaid and am sort of on the fence. I think it is as wide as it is long. I am thinking of wearing mine with J.Crew broken in boyfriend jean in Rogers wash (super sale)??? Also, I received the jeweled t-strap sandal yesterday from J.Crew in clear and hot diggity dog, I love them! They are so cute and comfortable in my normal size. I ordered them through a store and they gave me 75% off since they were a sandal, $24.00 I think. Talk about going with everything, these absolutely do! I would receommend you order a pair although I haven't worn them yet and haven't had plastic sandals in forever but out of the box were very cute and comfortable.

    1. I tried it on in another color and didn't buy it. It felt great on, but I didn't think it looked very good on me. It was very oversized, which I think would work with shorts or skinny pants or tucked into a pencil skirt maybe. I was not sure if it would work with a boyfriend jean, since the top and the bottom would be slouchy/oversized. DId you try it? Did you like how it looked? I wear boyfriend jeans a lot and I really did like the shirt and am still considering it.

      Which color did you get in the sandals? I've been eyeing those too.

    2. I went ahead and wore the courier shirt with a pair of the lookout highrise skinny jeans in white. I got the sandals in the clear color and I am wearing those today as well. I don't know if the shirt looks that great but I love the plaid and so comfortable. It comes down long in the back to cover my backside which is a plus.

    3. I'll bet it looked great with those jeans. thanks!

  2. Hello. Review of the ruffle sheath in Super 120s in this post.
