Back in my rat-maze daze, my immediate "supervisor" was a Coldwater Creek devotee. Consequently, I've always equated their stuff with safe, boring, middle-management looks, with no emphasis on natural fibers. In other words: another "Made in China" emporium. Good riddance.

I'm surprised they didn't garner enough business to survive. I've always like their clothes - instead of thinking of them as safe and boring, I always thought of them as classic and timeless.

Some of there clothes are a bit stodgy, but others are timeless and smart. Just stay away from the florals, pastels, and matronly prints.

I bought several pairs of shorts and tops, and stocked up on cotton cardigan sweaters. Snagged an open weave olive green sweater that will look nice in fall and white jeans that fit like a glove.

Bought a cute pair of beach glass blue and green beach glass earnings with a craft fair look that are far from frumpy.

I'll miss Cold Water Creek. There is a need for clothes for fashionable woman of every age. You can keep Juicy Couture. My 18 year of finds their stuff trashy.

I did, too. Everything I bought was natural fibers.

Why are they in bankruptcy? They had great clothes. Not super cheap and not expensive. Well made, too, compared to much of the trash that is sold in most stores around the country.

It's too bad they are in bankruptcy. They had some really cute items. I'll check out their site. Thanks.

J.Jill caters to the same crowd so you could shop there instead. I just wait for their clearance sales because their stuff is so pricey.
