J. (S)Crew

J. Crew, are you serious???  We're supposed to buy drop a cool $328 dollars for a children's skirt?  A skirt you billed as a "pretty keepsake."   A keepsake?  Wha? It's Three Hundred and Twenty Eight Dollars!  For a kid.  Do you know about children?  Well there's the growing really fast and then there's messy part and the whole lack of judgement regarding not going into mud puddles while wearing $328 dollar skirts... you know, stuff like that.  Unless those little pom-poms are edible and the skirt itself turns into a life raft in the event of an emergency I fail to see the value of this skirt....er keepsake.  I know you want to cater to a certain demographic but lets cut the shenanigans and get back to making classy suits shall we?

  1. GRRR this makes me mad. Why why why? I guess the Upper East Side is why. But still, why?

  2. I think I have an allergy of paying more than $300 for something that I could make for $20 and one night at the sewing machine.

    Who do they have making this skirt? Socialites? That's a heck of an hourly wage.

  3. Fo real, yo!

    I saw a line of children's shoes at Nordstrom the other day. They're Nordstrom's European Collection and they were over $150. I about died. Kid's shoes get trashed for the most part. Crazy.

  4. Im with Azucar. You could TOTALLY make that- and I can (almost) guarantee that it will be better constructed!

  5. It sure is cute, but you could totally make this. What is up with the tents? Did you ever post them on etsy? You have a buyer here :)

  6. That is crazy but what blows my mind even more is that people will pay for it.
