Did I actually write that my J.Crew-affair had peaked? Hm. I've done a fair amount of mall-crawling, in this our never-ending holiday season, and have only come to appreciate the 'Crew more. It's like Macy's, only with better clothes, in a much smaller physical space. Rather than floors and floors of stuff you don't want, you can be in and out of the shop with relative speed, and there's always something useful for which to write a mental Post-it note.

Ya, another boring J.Crew silk tank top, but wait! It's machine washable! Was I not recently grousing why the 'Crew did not produce more washable silk tops, in a wider color range?

I saw this in person...not something I'm likely to buy, but quite pretty. White skirts frighten me; they scream, "Drip coffee on me!" but I like the lace skirt concept.

Mmmm...might be nice for summer. I was looking for something like this, actually: a casual pull-on skirt in a neutral color. The drawstring would be a bonus (you could make the skirt fall longer), pockets are handy....
