I always laugh when someone says, I’m well dressed, assuming, I spend a fortune on what I wear.
HAH, is all I can say.
I have 3 words for you. J. Crew Factory.
Alright 5, tossing in The Gap.
The Gap continues to be the best deal in town, while the Factory preens online like a call girl awaiting your call.
When bored, check in to see their...new arrivals, as if they’ve just disembarked the QE2.
If you have a J. Crew Credit Card, easier to get than one thinks, you never pay shipping, that, let’s face it, could break a girl. How often have I ordered something that cost 20 bucks, and the shipping 25? Not often since…

But back to cheap glamour…a look so easily achieved.
Of course, and don’t get insulted, but too many women blame fashion on weight.
Oh, it’s because you’re so thin, you can wear that.
No, it’s because you’re blaming me for those 8 desserts you had. And being fleshy, as my old pal Camille would say, doesn’t mean you can’t have a little pizazz when you hit the streets.
There’s a woman I see who’s anything but skinny, who wears the loveliest clothes. Well tailored cotton shifts in pretty pastels, a sweater tied around her shoulders. Jack Rogers sandals, a scarf or silver chain showin’ off her girl.
I’ve told her many times how great she looks.
The plain truth is, it doesn’t cost much to look nice, doesn’t matter what you weigh.
Invest in a few staples, like a navy blazer and classic trench. A little black dress for evening. The Factory always has them on sale, but I suggest getting everything a size bigger because there is a downside…ALAS…
So, you take the jacket to a tailor, that yes, will increase the price, but you’ll still walkaway with a great deal, and you should have a good seamstress anyway.
Ask any French woman who looks great, rich or poor.
Jeans, khakis…long and short. A white button-down. A French sailor shirt, a cardigan…navy…off white.
All available at the GAP, also a great card to have, especially during their Friends and Family Sale.
Toss in a hoodie, a pair’a plain, black Audrey flats, and one more thing…
I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves.
