An Outfit (Deconstructed) ...

I'm not so much a J.Crew gal...

A bold statement I realize, and quite frankly, I wish I were...I love their styling, and I love that Jenna Lyons (complete genius), and oh my, how awesome was that "French" video that was making the rounds in blogland. (I personally watched it no less than a dozen times...)

And I like their clothes. I do. I just *usually* don't like them on me.

So I was a bit surprised when a quick stop into the J.Crew store a few weeks ago resulted in a handful of new things (way on sale) that I really, really like. There was the striped dress (tunic) that I wore over jeans in NYC and then the ruffled (again with the ruffles) black knit dress making an appearance in this week's outfit + a couple of necklaces.

Hmm...maybe the tides are turning. We'll see ;-)

What a gorgeous dress and shoes and accesories and all. I love it!

I know what you mean about JCrew. I love the styling and Jenna Lyons, too, but the clothes just never seem to fit me quite right. BTW, I'm loving this deconstructed series you're doing. Would you consider including bags sometimes with your outfits? I'm a bag lover, and I'd love to see what you pair with your outfits.

Are there pockets in your dress? I love pockets in dresses!

p.s. i'm going to nyc on sunday for a week! super excited but i wish i knew how to properly fill a suitcase. i know you can't do it in time to help me for this trip, but would you consider doing a post on PACKING as i am an epic failure at it and you mentioned that you are somewhat amazing at it. thanks! =)

So fabulous! I am obsessed with J.crew - especially the styling. going in the store makes me think I can wear a pile of necklaces, an army jacket and a floral dress together. LOVE how you styled your looks!

J. Crew is one of my favorites! I love the pockets on the dress and I can't believe those wedges are from Old Navy! Nice find!

Stephanie -- yep pockets...i'm with you, pockets in dresses are pretty genius!

The nail polish is OPI "Over the Taupe." It's my current fave for toes.

Anon -- the video used to be on the J.Crew homepage but there's a new one up there now. I've searched and can't find a link to the old one.

Does anyone out there have a permalink?

happy friday!
