J.Crew hands you a tissue

As I was surreptitiously browsing the J.Crew porn New Arrivals today, I chanced upon a bevy of Tissue Turtlenecks.

I'd gone through turtleneck madness last year, once I'd discovered how useful and plentiful they were. (For example, C & C California marked theirs down to $10 a pop at the end of the season; sign up on their website for future sale and coupon info.)

But the 'Crew Tissue T's have proven the most versatile of the lot, due to our peculiar climate. I wore one today in fact, at the end of July, with a cardigan over it.

May I vent on "J.Crew haiku" for a bit?

I feel like throwing something every time I read, "You'll want one in every color." I do NOT want one in every color. (Even if I could AFFORD one in every color.) Thank you.

Back to the porn...hmmm...I like the Dried Rose above, and this:

Sure, it looks like eight shades of tepid, but the Champagne one I got last year is easily the one I reach for most. It goes with just about everything, and, as I favor dark skirts, dark tops tend to create further...darkness.

Without seeing the shirts b & m, those are the only two colors I'd want, even though the peach and purple shades look quite pretty to me. I know myself; there are colors I gravitate towards...not necessarily "flattering" shades, I don't think about it that way. It's--do I like it? Yes? Then that's what I want to see.
