A Middle-Aged, (Upper-)Middle-Class Mom Kind of Post
I must confess my dismay at the news that Talbots is buying J. Jill. While cost makes J. Jill more often a wardrobe ideal than a presence in my closet (and the floaty embroidery doesn't do it for me), they make trousers that fit and enough clothes I love to make it worth combing the sales racks. Talbots, on the other hand--well, let's just say there's nothing there for me, though once my ex-stepmother bought toddler M an adorable bathing suit covered with orange slices at Talbots Kids.
