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. Hello JCAs! I’m finally going to trot out my Linen Shift Dress in Iridescent Sequins that’s been patiently waiting in my closet for 4 years. I’m wearing it to a late afternoon wedding and reception at a winery next weekend. Any thoughts on shoes? I’m thinking of staying neutral with some high raffia heels from Anthro (they have some jewels that I hope will complement but not complete with the sequins). I’d like a lower option for dancing if necessary. I have the fuchsia Penny sandals from last summer, but the colour is a bit strong with the dress. My gold block heels (also from last summer) seem a bit plain (which I guess was the point when I bought them). Any suggestions for colours and styles are ver much appreciated!

    1. Whoops, proper name is Linen sundress in iridescent sequin, style C7916

    2. Its a pretty dress, and you need to let the dress star. Easy on the shoes and jewelery. I would like to try a sandal with thin straps in metallic.

    3. Wise words, pbanos! Thank you!
