Sure. May be a week or so. I am going out of town for New Year starting tomorrow, but I am sure I will wear them. I'll take some pics.

I'm in love with that jacket in the first post, middle.

It's sold out at Neiman and Bergdorf. Anyone seen it anywhere else? I absolutely must have it!

Elizabeth and James is going to rely heavily on the celebrity of the Olsen twins to be successful and clearly they have enough weight right now to achieve it. The pieces I've seen definitely do not fill a void as it were, and I dont believe would be anything more than a blip on the fashion radar if it not were for the gimmick of celebrity.

Waistcoats and short shorts is far from anything new, as well as sequined frocks as an 80s reference. Who doesnt know tons of girls who shop at thrift and vintage stores for those dresses and really believe its their personal style that led them to do so? Its a tired look.

I really think the Olsen twins are very cute, but honestly believe that their style is nothing new. Mixing vintage or low end with high end is a concept that was big years ago. To me, there are TFers that if they had that tiny frame and an inexhaustible closet could do the same thing.

I think the price point is fine for what is is, but I'm sure there are a few extra dollars added on because of the fresh faces behind the line.

Anyway, if everything is sold out, my advice to you is buy something else in the same department and just tell people its Elizabeth and James if it makes you feel better, I'm sure they wont question it.

The Row has a higher price point while E&J's is considered "contemporary" and can usually be found among the diffusion lines of designers. Also, MK&A are far more involved with The Row from start to finish. With E&J it's a liscencing deal similar to the one they have for their tween line at Walmart Hope this helps!

i like the row collection much better than this collection of basically knockoffs. so lacking any need for talent or creativity.

I love the article in post #241, they seem incredibly down to earth for how they could have turned out with all the fame and money (Britney, Paris, ect lol).

What if they are doing it for the money?? Who cares? It doesn't imply that they have a "need" for the money, so much as it implies that they WANT IT. (And why shouldn't they??) I don't see what the problem is there with someone wanting to expand their portfolio financially or otherwise.

We used to provide stock coverage for such companies (I'll be as vague as possible in this regard), and people rarely did things like this because they NEEDED the money; WANTING it was a different story and was ALWAYS a factor - be it primary, secondary, or otherwise.
