Working on it. We are painting right now so it's all drop cloths and ladders.

I have been wondering the exact same thing! I think I'll have to be sticking with Payless :P

Maybe the endorsement of Michelle Obama has elevated J. Crew into a whole new league of prices.

Brilliant Asylum said...

I was wondering about the Obama factor. The sad thing is I was searching J. Crew trying to find a recession friendly alternative to some Jimmy Choo's I saw at Saks yesterday. Whatevs.

um, yeah ...because I would pay like $80 for J.Crew shoes ...but not $450.

Their prices went up a while back, maybe 1-2 years ago? But just wait for a sale. EVERYTHING goes on sale there. Or, even better, wait until it ends up at Rugged Wearhouse for $7.99, ha! I've bought tons of cute JCrew ballet flats there for $14.99. And the wedding dress that was $2,000 in the catalog was $9.99 at Rugged. I gave it to a friend:)

Sarah, what is this Rugged you speak of and why have I never heard of it? OMG, that place sounds like heaven!

I agree that J.Crew's prices have gotten ridiculous. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love so many of their items, but hate that I can't buy them all!

Not cool. Cute, but not cool.
