J. Crew must employ some very clever marketing folks. I'm always thrilled to receive their catalog in the mail, and must sit down immediately to pour over the new (or new-to-me) treasures contained within its pages.
I like to pretend I have Jenna Lyons' job, so here are my picks from their November 2010 mailer. My picks are a motley bunch, as always...
Love this retro glam necklace.
|J. Crew Soleil Necklace (Antique Gold), $98 at ww.jcrew.com.|
I think if I had an unlimited amount of discretionary income, I'd own about 1,000 tuxedo jackets (Yes, I'm a big fan of hyperbole). I'm always drawn to them. This one seems particularly versatile.
|J. Crew Knit Tuxedo Jacket (Heather Carbon), $168 at www.jcrew.com.|
This looks like it could be the perfect casual button-down. I might wear it with a pencil skirt and jewels to dress it up.
|J. Crew Fine Cotton Desert Shirt (Mossy Oak), $65 at www.jcrew.com.|
I'm not sure, personally, how I'd wear this, but I'm intrigued by the corset styling and I'm loving anything gold this fall.
|J. Crew Silk Jacinta Vest (Golden Topaz), $168 at www.jcrew.com.|
This drapey lace skirt looks like a dream. Love it!
|J. Crew Lace Tulip Mini (Black), $138 at www.jcrew.com.|
This is a gorgeous, neutral staple of a dress. So easy and elegant.
|J. Crew Washed Crepe Jane Dress (Dusty Cedar), $250 at www.jcrew.com.|
I've been admiring tan belts of late...I especially like the repeated-buckle motif. It looks hip yet whimsical.
|J. Crew Multi-Buckle Belt (Toffee) $45, at www.jcrew.com.|
Victorian-esque granny boots and hiking-style booties are quite the rage these days. I admit it; I'm being drawn in.
|J. Crew Eliza Lace-Up Boots (Olive Moss), $350 at www.jcrew.com.|
Pretty peep toe platforms.
|J. Crew Lindy Platform Peep Toes, $265 (Warm Taupe) at www.jcrew.com.|
A perfect specimen of the equestrian boot.
|J. Crew Britten Tall Flat Boots (Black), $350 at www.jcrew.com.|
