On my lunch-time wanderings, I happened to step into JCrew and saw this cashmere sweater lying solely by itself in a size XS (now mind you, these sweaters had just come in a week ago). Already, people had scooped them up and of course I had to have it too! Unfortunately, all the stores in NYC were sold out of it in this color and in my size small. So, I called the 800 number, got a personal shopper to scour the countryside for one in my size and was victorious!

Tips from a shopaholic - JCrew
1. Even if you don't see your size or color in the store, make sure you call the customer service number and have them do a nation-wide search. Often times, they'll find the item and it will be shipped to you free of charge!
2. Research, research, research. Check JCrew sales prices online and in stores. Sometimes, their prices do not match up, and you can find the same item online for much less than what it is in the store. Have the store honor the online price and vice versa.
