Rebelling through Sweaters



J.Crew always gets you with their damn styling and their fucking colors which are outstandingly bright season after season. My roommate got the newest catalog today and as soon as I opened it I died for the colorblock sweater. It's SO Jil without actually being like, JIL, you know? Then decided I obviously needed the chambray shirt to go under it. I still don't have a long-sleeve denim shirt which is absolutely PREPOSTEROUS if you know how much I love (1) Canadian tuxedos and (2) button-down shirts.

And don't even get me STARTED on what's happening behind the sweater because I'm not paying attention. The sequined skirt is OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive so it's like, dudes, don't even show me that shit.

But this sweater? This sweater I really really want. Am I at the point where I'll drop 300 bucks on a sweater that could make all my dreams come true? PROBS NOT, but much like the Biebz, I will never say never.

I've kept my eyes open for a great long-sleeve denim shirt for yonks now and also keenly feel the preposterousness in not having found one yet. I had one, which I loved to bits, back in 1990 when I was nine, though. Inspired by a woman in a random movie, I used to rock the shirt with black leggings and a black leather belt fastened around my waist. I also had a perm. I walked a couple of inches above the ground every time I wore that ensemble.

JCrew is now my guilty pleasure! Here's the catch: you see shit in Vogue or Bazaar that you love bit is worth a gazillion $$$. Then you start looking for similar things, and find them in JCrew, for $300, and of all of a sudden they seem attainable. You add them to your bag, search a bit more, find nothing even close to what you already have in your bag, you hesitate a bit, do your numbers, and a 'what the heck' later, it's shipping your way!
Happens to me all the time! Its not the sweaters, its the flower print pants.

they are all quite small, much to my chagrin, but maybe you'll find something!
