Look at the fun she's having while those of us who believed the hype that a knowledge of many languages would open many doors (maybe if you're a trilingual doorman) are reduced to correcting the spelling on cheesy t-shirts and smarming at maitre d's....
and those who opted for Medieval Studies are trying to illuminate and gild the bar menus for Ye Olde Goode Times while not having to wear a wench outfit - yes, I periodically hear from a poetically minded friend who keeps body and soul together by selling her (academic) soul and explaining that the lap dance was unknown before the Renaissance, at just such a place. We might hear more from her later on, she generally gets in touch around Christmas. Plenty of part-time gigs for a qualified medievalist in New York City in the winter....

Yes, the Copywriter from Space, with her guaranteed lifetime sinecure on the J.Crew website, has struck again!
The text below describes the Nili Lotan cashmere sweater as a "cropped silhouette" which "hits at hip." I see it "hitting" at what would most likely be "above the hip" on me, but who am I to fuss about such minor details? After all, if I don't consider my hip situation minor, who will? What I really don't get is why the word "streamlined" repeatedly crops up with reference to Nili. After the wrinkly caftan which I was told was supposed to look like that, the droopy drawers which are again with us in an autumn iteration, and the floppy sweaters, I'm losing track of where the streamlining is. Somewhere in production, perhaps? Don't think I'd rely on J.Crew's sources to produce a "special open-stitch weave" that would last more than one wear. Oh, and yarns are spun, not sweaters, which are knitted or crocheted, not woven? A close look (zoom, zoom) shows that this sweater is in fact knitted. And I think it may have been hiked forward for the front view, downward for the back view. Somewhere in-between may be a hip.
Our women's design team fell in love with the streamlined silhouettes from this much-buzzed-about Israeli-born designer. Like all her creations, this sweater was carefully crafted in the designer's intimate New York atelier. Spun from the most luxurious cashmere, it features a special open-stitch weave and so-right-now cropped silhouette. In a 7-gauge knit. Crewneck
