J. Crew Phases Out Petites In Stores…Again

The other day, I trekked from my barre class at the King/University area to the Eaton Centre.  Whenever I’m at that mall, I make my usual stops, which often includes J. Crew.  After the December holiday season, I noticed that the store started carrying a small selection of petite sizes.  Good news for a short […]

An Evening with J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons and Somsack Sikhounmuong

Earlier this week, I had the chance to go to an event at the J.Crew store in Toronto’s Yorkville area. The RSVP-only event was billed as an evening with J.Crew head Jenna Lyons, but also in attendance was women’s wear designer, Somsack Sikhounmuong, who I learned last night is from Oshawa.  The event was very […]

Petites at J. Crew Brick and Mortar Stores!

Well, at Yorkdale and the Eaton Centre in Toronto, anyway.  I am unsure about petite availability in other cities.  While the collection is very small (for example, only two washes in the Toothpick jean, perhaps three style of dresses and a handful of Tippi sweaters were among the pieces available).  We shorter women no longer […]

J.Crew Switching Canada to Borderfree

Currently, Canadians can shop J.Crew’s clothing using a similar method as Americans, with the exception that prices include duties charged.  While the prices are in US dollars, we enjoy the same (or similar) coupon codes at the same time.  However, all this is about to change.  This morning (July 29, 2015), I received an email […]

Petite Sizes: Is it Getting Better?

I’d say, to a certain extent, yes.  Most major brands that carry petites have launched their spring looks, and while many of the pieces still lean towards office-friendly, the choices are growing, sometimes with almost as much variety as regular sizes.  But, it’s not quite there…yet.  Sometimes, certain looks aren’t available in petites at all […]

That In Between Weather and the Wardrobe

I hate this time of year.  It’s not cold enough to be completely bundled up, but definitely not warm enough to be strutting around in sandals and capris.  It’s that in between time again.  And yes, I’m still stuck in my ugly tall boots.  They’re dirty from the snow (I don’t bother cleaning, since they’re […]

J.Crew Brings Petite Denim and Sweaters Back for Select Styles

I just came across the news this morning (after clicking on an email from J.Crew regarding new styles).  J.Crew has NOT sold petite length denim or sweaters in at least five years.  The jeans are available only in the Reid line and have a 30″ inseam.  Sizes are the standard 24-30 and come in six […]

J.Crew Launches Size 000: Vanity Sizing Gone Too Far?

I didn’t notice this until I browsed J.Crew’s latest pieces where sizes 000 and XXXS are now available in its regular sizing (petites still end at XXSP and 00P).  Even as a relatively tiny person, I think it’s getting a bit too crazy.  Do women really have such low self-esteem that they need to feel […]

J.Crew Yorkville: Now Open!

Last week, J.Crew held a party to celebrate their Yorkville store (located on 110 Bloor Street West, at the former home of Escada), which is the only Canadian location that carries the J.Crew Collection, a line premium priced items. The store also has regular items, but selection is not as big as the Yorkdale or […]

She’s Got Coats of Many Colours: IFB Project #116

I try to avoid buying black or charcoal coats.  When everyone has a similar coloured coat, you just blend in with the rest.  Besides, winter’s cold and it gets dark early, so why do you want to…disappear?  One reason why I try to look for brighter colours (or at least, not something dark) when I’m […]
