I really like my new Graphic Tee that I had picked up from Jacob last week. It's a dark Heather Grey with an abstract Lily drawing in a brush stroke design. The center of each Lily is finished with sequins. Note: The lilies are drawn on both the front as well as on the back of the tee. The Tee is an 80's style with a wide scoop neck, slight gathers at the shoulders and short capped sleeves. It's a longer style tee and when pulled down completely actually come to the top of my thighs. Since I don't like it quite that long (for it draws just WAY too much attention to thundering thighs), I have the top pulled up slightly to give it that ruching look around the waist as well as to raise the hem. I absolutely LOVE this tee and it was a steal for $19 from the original price of $38.
I have been asked by a few bloggers if we have stores in Canada that are comparable to J Crew. Based solely on my humble opinon, there are 2 chain-stores in the Lower Mainland (Vancouver) whose style is similar to J Crew. The first is Club Monaco. Club Monaco's style is similar to the dressier J Crew style. They showcase a lot more color, finer fabrics and classic styling with an edge. The other store is Jacob. I like Jacob's line of Khakis, Chinos, Cords, and Graphic Tees. Although both stores are about as close as they come to J Crew style, no store in Vancouver comes close to being J Crew and that's why I continue to shop at J Crew. Anyway, if you're ever by a Jacob, do be sure to check out their Graphic Tees. The last time I was there, they did have a fabulous selection at awesome prices!!! Anyway....
