End to J Crew as we know it?

I don’t heart J Crew. I have never met anyone who can wear their pants, I dont know who their fit model is and color combo occasionally is too much of a modern day Lilly Pulitzer. However COMMA that is not to say that I don’t wear Lilly Pulitzer and J Crew.

J Crew’s peacoat jackets are amazing, great fit and color selection. I also like their basic but good quality crew neck sweaters, again beautiful colors, I just bought light blue, oatmeal and briiiiight yellow which I thought I could wear with black leggings and gold Van sneakers. J Crew’s Regency jacket is an old favorite of mine, classic with a twist. And I was seriously considering buying these babies in forest green. Pointy toe flats are hard to find and pom-poms are so in for this summer.


Lot of my clients love J Crew and, for crying out loud, my 7 year old daughter Olivia just announced that she had torn her favorite leggings and asked me if I could get some new ones for her from Crewcuts as she thinks they fit her the best. Before you point fingers at me, she’s been like this since birth. Had to tell her she can’t wear a fur vest to school today. Sigh..

SO it comes as a bit of a surprise that J Crew is letting go of their head of design Jenna Lyons who has been there for 26 years and pretty much designed all these pieces I love. I can’t fault her style, she is beyond gorgeous. Can’t wait to see what she (and J Crew) do next.

How good is this? Amazing.


Couldn’t agree more.
