I want something I want*

I get about a dozen emails a day from people who want to sell me things - or offer me things to blog about. Most of them are directed to mommybloggers, a group I was never really part of as I started blogging when my youngest child was ten and I never wrote about toilet training him. But I digress. Some of the emails are from my friends at Anthropologie and J Crew and Old Navy. Most of the time I delete them before I even look at them but yesterday I actually looked at the one from J Crew.

I don't know Jenna but I have to say: I think I like her "picks."

I like the blouse up in the top corner very much. And though I told K that I'd like to see it off the model ("I'd like to see it off the model too," he replied dryly.) I think I need to see it ON ME.

Anyway, I like it.
Ditto this jacket -

- which actually looks worse on the model.

But it could be the formal shorts that are throwing me.

I like these very very much.

Just a tiny bit of ruffle. Black or gray?! Lovely.

OOH! Oh. Love.
I think that's twill tape. I have a weakness and a great fondness for twill tape.

I
am
done.

Maybe there will be a sale?
Maybe I should unsubscribe?

Sigh.

I *want* those pink shoes, gray gloves, and that last necklace you posted. I love J.Crew madly, but their price points are absolutely ridiculous. I got an adorable blush cardigan in a perfect light cotton on sale for $30, though. I will keep stalking their sale section.
"Something pretty." You didn't footnote the asterisk in the title, so I will assume it's a quote from Love Actually. Mia?

So many pretty things.

Love all your picks and agree that the top is so very, very blackbird.

May have to buy those gloves. If I was buying anything and I'm not. Ever again.
Now that top is just how I imagine you - and see those anklet boots? so much better than those polio orthotics you showed us the other day.

The gloves look a little old lady but I must say, I'm in a clime where gloves are not that common so I could just have missed that whole boat. But def. in black rather than that gray that belongs in the whole colour wheel spectrum of menopausal purple.

That necklace - are they baubles or bells because dude, I'm going to start calling you reindeer if they so much as give the slightest hint of a jingle.

But I hear you on the whole twill tape thing.

I'm digging that pencil skirt too - and the heels. I'd look hot in those two items. If I was 20kgs lighter.

K and AB? Separated at birth.
I'm thinking that somebody with a crafty streak could whip up a necklace like that for not too much money.
I'll let you know if I can reproduce the thing.

This is why I do not understand fashion. I read Jenna's copy and thought 'what on earth are you on about'

I don't know why I subscribe to the JCrew catalogue. It's not available here but I do love looking at their goodies. And I don't even bother looking at the price tag.

Now, I love the way those formal shorts look.

I don't know if I'd love them on my thighs but I think, this summer, I might just find out.

And I think you should try to make that twill/pearl necklace. But only if you promise to blog about it, K?
