Ok, anyone who knows me knows I am not exactly loaded (I am an artist, folks). Not exactly starving, but thin. LOL. I love quality and stylish things, but I am also a bargain hunter (my mom turned me into one). I believe it's better to have fewer things that last and are good quality, than a closet full of trendy junk. That's why I love J. Crew. I could wear nothing else and be perfectly happy til I am an old lady. Their stuff is perfect for my casual lifetsyle. Right now, they are having an UNBELIEVABLE sale. For my stateside readers, I would recommend a visit to your local branch or their website and pronto. Things are getting snapped up by smart people. The t shirt above sums it up. The pink Julianne dress is only 49.99 and it won't be out of style next season. That is a steal. Hard times demand resourcefulness and J. Crew is a terrific resource!
