First of all, apologies for my silence in the blogosphere over the past week. I was suffering from a vile, pestilent lurgy of the gastric kind. It was horrid, but fingers crossed, I'm the only person in the family to succumb to it, so far.
Today, I dragged myself to work and that made me feel a bit more human, although it was fiendishly cold today here in Sydney.
On my arrival home, I had a look at the J Crew site. I must say that I've been very underwhelmed by the Spring/Summer collection so far, and the final rollout is no exception.
It's probably due to it being winter here, but that never usually stops me perving and lusting after clothes of inappropriate seasonal or lifestyle relevance.
Nevertheless, I can't stop myself from an almost Pavlovian checking of J Crew, especially when there's new stuff coming out.
Here are the few things that got my attention:
No 2 Pencil skirt in 'academic green'
love those colour names!
This necklace is very pretty, too. Rather pricey, though.
Even though I'm not a floral person, this print looks lovely:
I won't be getting any of the above, though. I'm saving myself for other things.
And perhaps the Fall/Winter collection, which looks far more interesting than the very blah stuff that's online at present.
Before I stop my rant about J Crew, can I also put it out there that I think their sale prices for International customers are outrageous. OUTRAGEOUS I say.
Lower your prices for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere and we might buy some of your languishing old pieces from the sale section. We're the only customers who need winter stuff, so why on earth not try to flog them off to us at a lower price?
Here's what I wore today. You've seen it before, but it cheered me up as I'm still feeling a bit off colour.
Any new J Crew for you? Or are you jaded and tired like me?
Any weekend plans?
We're off to the beach. Yippee!!!
