Seeing as my crutches and leg boot are preventing much in the way of style in my life, I thought I'd indulge in a bit of fantasy shopping on J Crew. I often play this game on the Net-à-Porter site, where I add all the items I would love to splurge on to my wish list. It's a futile exercise, as my budget barely extends to the cheapest items on NAP, but still, it's fun to dream.
As we know, the J Crew site doesn't have a wish list function. It's a bit irritating, really. Nevertheless, since ankle surgery, I've spent a fair bit of time adding items to my shopping bag on the JC site. It's highly unlikely that I'll be able to afford the cashmere items below unless they are massively reduced, but I adore the colours.
The Pixie pants are something that I keep almost buying, but I'm a bit horrified at the price. Are they worth it? Any reviews of them? They look as if they'd be quite flattering, but would I be better off buying black Minnies? What do you think?
The blue pencil skirt is another piece I would love, but having already bought the Clover Tweed and the Pixilated Houndstooth (hasn't arrived yet), I'm thinking it would be overkill to get this as well. Unless there's some huge extra % off.
Finally, a pic of today's crutch-friendly outfit: JC blue 5" chino shorts and black singlet. I was also wearing a JC factory cardigan in a flowery print, but it was 29 degrees C so I took it off. By my side is a green Tillary bag bought on eBay.
Hope you're having a fab weekend!
