Walked into a small J. Crew yesterday in a festival-style shopping center -- not one of my regular B&M's, I was out Christmas shopping with friends -- and was astounded to see this blazer in full supply, on sale for $110. Welcome to my Christmas list, Miss Thang! TarHeelDad a/k/a Santa gave me permission to wear it to a casual dinner party tonight, yippee!

I have a tip for those of you who, like me, enjoy J. Crew's Stretch Twill Minnies and Cafe Capris but often prefer a longer pant during colder weather: Order your usual size but in the Tall version. Inseam length will be 29" (30" in some styles) and every other measurement will be the same. And often the Tall versions are still in stock online when the Regular-length versions are long gone.
