If anyone finds a money tree, please let me know! I really wanted the J. Crew collection photo floral skirt, see it here, but it is way out of my price range at a whopping $600! In fact a lot of items from their fall collection were out of my price range forcing me to look elsewhere for less expensive doppelgängers of the real items I wanted (first world problems, I know). Has anyone else notice this upwards price movement at J.Crew? They have always been on the pricier side and I know I’ve read articles relaying that they were trying to move toward “collection” type pieces, but I guess I just didn’t want to believe it. I’m starting to feel like I’m being shoved out as a customer there. More power to you if you can afford the collection wear, but I am an avid bargain shopper. I liked buying the “mistakes,” as Mickey Drexler would like to call the sale items, but even those are getting pricier and pricier. It’s a good thing stores like H&M are there to pick up the pieces! Is J.Crew leaving the “little guys” in the dust and moving on to the high-end customers? Do you feel abandoned?
P.S. Thanks for letting me rant and rave today and for stopping by!
