When a dress isn't just a dress

This dress is simple.
As in reductive?
Yes, it says forget about fabric, drape, and line: color is everything.
Nothing should ever be everything. That dress is a reductio ad absurdum.
No, it's just a dress, a really stupid dress.

When a cardigan is a state of mind

What does timeless mean to you?
Classic, not bound by culture, trends, or provincial values.
Then timeless can't be fashionable can it?
Ok, then, it's fashion that defeats or transcends the idea of fashion.
Then a cardigan can be a state of mind.
You say true, my friend!

Ballet-sleeve tunic. Hmm. I'd emphasize the neckline.
What would you say?
Scoop-neck tunic: or, the many faces of decolletage.
Nice!

It's dull.
It's supposed to be dull--as in chambray: the new black.
Black's not dull; it's vivid.
Ok, then, how about: chambray, the new neutral?
Neutral may be a bit toned down but that's not the same thing as dull in my book.

Sure, you could wear them to work, but I wouldn't. I'd rather keep them just for me, for knocking around or just being on my own.
You mean you don't dress for other people?
Not primarily. I used to, of course, but now I prefer to dress for me--or rather for me, myself, and I. How about you?

Looks more like a tunic than a dress to me.
You're right, it has to be worn over leggings.
But does that mean it can't be regarded as a dress?
Well, not a dress dress.
Is a dress dress a classic dress?
Yes, it's a dress narrowly defined.
So what kind of a dress is this?
An undressed dress--simple, unadorned, pared down to the essentials.
In other words, a classic or quintessential dress.

The fit is a little looser than in the photo.
You mean it's baggy?
No, but it fans out a little at the bottom.
Like a peplum?
Not exactly, but instead of clinging, it sort of skirts the pants.

The flame within

She wears it always: a necklace comprised of a metal disc surrounded by cherry quartz stones. When she takes his order, he can't help but notice the way it drifts left, seemingly of its own accord, to find a place near her heart. The disc is scored with little marks which on closer inspection resemble dagger points--it is as though the disc is her very heart. On the necklace's far right are two stones more richly colored than the rest of the pale pink crew, separated from eachother by one pale cherry pit. He can't help but personify the two richly hued stones: are they a father and daughter or perhaps a husband and wife, separated by circumstance, grief, time, even death itself? Does she mourn his absence? Yes. Does she await his return? Surely. His imminent return? Why did I think that, he wonders, and then sees that her careworn face is preternaturally alert today. Her eyes reflect the morning light and seem to throw it back again, as though this light had kindled a flame buried deep within her, a flame that is suddenly asserting itself.

Our famous Peruvian pima cotton tee is versatile enough to wear all year ‘round. Ballet sleeves. Low-hip length. Machine wash. Imported.
 

Do these tees have a uniform u-neck?

In the pictures of the different models, the U-necks all fit differently. Does that mean that each color has a different size neck?

Monday through Friday approved, too. Sit below the waist. Easy-fit, 5-pocket style with slightly tapered leg shape. Subtle whiskering detail. Ships with 1 1/2" cuffs, rolled twice. Unrolled: 32" inseam, 30" petite, 32" women’s. 100% cotton. Machine wash. Imported.
 

Are you discontinuing the weekender jeans since they are not included on your denim fit video?

All the other jeans are featured--Tried and True (boot cut and slim leg); Authentic fit (boot cut and slim leg); and the Boyfriend. If the weekender is not being discontinued, why isn't it included in the line-up?

Stitched horizontal stripes on our one-of-a-kind sweater. Relaxed fit with dropped shoulders. 3/4 sleeves. Low-hip length. Cotton and polyester. Hand wash or dry clean. Imported.
 

Could this sweater be washed in a machine on delicate cycle if it was folded into a laundry bag for delicate items?

I don't have a washing machine with a hand wash cycle, nor do I want to be bothered with washing manually, and dry cleaning is too expensive. I might buy this sweater but only if I were sure it would be easy care.

Delicate floral embroidered button-front shirt with pearlized buttons. Long sleeves. Low-hip length. Cotton slub jersey. Machine wash. Imported.
 

Would you choose the white or the blue version of this shirt?

Granted both versions are lovely, but this is an imperfect world and some of us can not afford both. Therefore, I ask you, which shirt would you buy, which one would you recommend to the inquiring consumer?

Scalloped edge with stitch detailing on supersoft leather. Microfiber lining. Padded footbed. Flexible rubber sole with slight hidden wedge. Made exclusively for J.Jill.
 

Will J. Jill in the Paseo Mall carry shoes?

I have bought shoes from J. Jill in the past but have had to return them, because even when they fit, they are sometimes not altogether comfortable. I would like to be able to try them on at my local J. Jill, just as I try on your clothes.
