J Crew Style

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
J Crew top, skirt, and socks, vintage belt, Nine West shoes, Banana Republic necklace, Forever 21& Free People ring 

One of my favorite things to do is sit down with a cup of coffee and look through catalogs.One of my favorites is always J. Crew. The styling is always superb and they make the clothes so desirable, much more so then when I see them hanging on the rack in the store. I have this skirt that has been haunting me from their store for months. It is rather large and unflattering on me. Plus, it gets wrinkled within two minutes of wearing it (and I don't own an iron)! So, this was my one attempt to wear it and you probably will never see it again. I thought I would go for a very J Crew inspired look with this outfit. So, I did stripes, layers, oversized necklace (so Wilma Flintstone) and socks! I have to say it was kind of fun to try, but I m not sure I will do this look again and the skirt may have to go bye bye!
Do you have items that you try to wear over and over and just look like crap?

On another note I am updating adding a few more items to eBay that I am letting go of.

I love the heels + socks combination here. Since that was one of my favorite runway looks, I'm glad that j.crew has brought it "to the masses."

Highdee said...

Haha no willa flinstone, you look amazing.
J crew is definitely a brand to watch.

Jaime said...

You wear the socks and pumps look well! :) bravo!

Leah said...

Love it... and that oversized necklace is so fab. I feel the same way about easily wrinkled clothes, I'm having a difficult time wearing them.

Have a great day! xoxo

Melanie said...

I love the socks. Such a gorgeous colour

Jessica said...

I totally agree about J. Crew! The catalog makes me want everything but it's never as exciting in the store. I like this look though! I really want a shirt like that. I think the socks and over-sized necklace are such fun accessories!

I totally know what you mean about great clothes that hang unworn because every time you try to wear them, you remember what was wrong with them.
But this is not wrong at all... you look stunning! Love all of it, wrinkly skirt as well...

You look great! I love the sophisticated in a "I don't really care" kind of way. You have such great style.

I actually love this look. I have a very similar skirt from H&M and it sometimes makes me look very hippy, but other times it looks great. I just have to pair it with the right top. I dont know.
