CommentsSo I realize I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I still haven't gotten around to replying to everyone's comments, and I'm so sorry! I am thisclose to being caught up on all my J.Crew reviews, and still have a ton of older Old Navy and Gap ones to post, as well (if anyone is even interested in them), so please bear with me for a little while more. I hope the new format of the reviews is helpful.
One comment I do need to respond to is Pixel Girl - I am 5'0", and if you e-mail me (jadorethesestores AT gmail DOT com), I will tell you how much I weigh. I hope it is not too late! Sorry to be all clandestine about that, but I'm not ready to announce that number to the world yet!
Other Fun Stuff
There are a couple of other things I'd like to mention. First off, I am wondering if you find it helpful to be able to request items for review on this blog. When I go to stores to try on clothes, I mainly pick out clothes based on my personal taste. I usually try to pick out some clothes I think are on the opposite end of my style, or clothes I know that I don't like, as well. So every Thursday, I will run a post that you can comment on to request specific clothes for review, and I will do my best to find these clothes and do reviews for you.
Please note that I won't be ordering any clothes expressly for reviews, and I may not be able to find requested clothes at my local stores, but I will try! It may also take a couple weeks to get to your requested item, as I don't go to the mall every week (or at least try not to!).
I know that the J.Crew Aficionada blog runs a very successful weekly exchange (and I'm not trying to encroach on that - I've scored some amazing deals there myself), but I'm wondering if any of the readers here would be interested in replicating that exchange on this blog, but including all of the brands that this blog covers.
The Boyfriend and I have been developing a website exclusively for selling clothes, and are hoping to roll it out for alpha testing soon, and I'd like to invite all of my blog readers to be the first round testers. I'm afraid I can't go into more detail at this time, but please stay tuned. In the meantime, let me know if you'd participate in an all-stores clothes sale/swap coordinated by me!
I want to wish the lovely Michelle good luck this week, and have a safe trip home! :)
