JCrew love and mermaids?

JCrew love! I had a girlfriend in grade school who sent me a catalog from JCrew with a note inside saying "I know I can only afford socks, but aren't they beautiful clothes?" I'm in love with the gold sandals! I would wear them with the peacock blue silk shorts. Yummy!

So, thanks to the lovely comments from yesterday's post I'm determined to pick up any of Judy Bloom's books at the library tonight. I'm trying to figure out where I was that I didn't get the Bloom memo as a kid :)

Also, as quick request, does anyone know where to look for illustrations or images of mermaids?

They do have neat stuff - just wish it wasn't so expensive! Have you tried searching Flickr?

I love JCrew. Always a timeless classic.

Flickr, iStock, stockchange, google images??

I love Jcrew's bright splashes of color!! Have you ever looked at veer.com? It's a really fun place to look for images. Gettyimages.com, and definitely flickr! :) Best of luck! I can't wait to see where your mermaid thoughts lead!!

Hmm, mermaids? I'd commission one from Betsy Walton--- she'd make a lovely mermaid. :)

If I could afford it I'd be shopping there all of the time. Even the Goodwill charges a lot for their clothes!

Thanks for your insight on the Rules of Blogging. I don't like overly posting blogs either - I get anxious and confused! Haha. If blogs are in it for their own personal horn blowing...you tend to tell and I'm not really into that either.

iStockPhoto.com is MUCH le$$ than GettyImages for your mermaid search. There are also some mermaids at Etsy.
