j.crew’s fall collection… and my silly hobbies


I stroll into J.Crew at least once a week, sometimes more. They always greet me with a friendly “Hi Lauren, how’s your day going?” (Yes, they know my name, and I am tremendously embarrassed by that, especially because I never buy a thing.) I usually try to sneak in and browse the sidelines without anyone noticing me. I continued with my weekly ritual yesterday, journeying 4 blocks to J.Crew on my lunch break and was once again blown away. The gorgeous colors, prints, and attention to tiny applique details was just too much for me to handle; oh, and their famous cashmere sweaters! I wandered the store, touching everything, holding things up in the mirror, and trying on shoes, pretending that maybe this time I will splurge and buy these $240 dollar wedge boots. It’s fun to pretend. Good job J.Crew, I believe that you win the award for most fun, everyday festive, and wearable fall collection of all time. And if I could take home every piece that you ever made, I would. Thank you J.Crew, for providing me with inspiration and a break from my daily work routine. And thank you to everyone at the City Creek J.Crew for not judging me for coming in all too often, and humoring my silly hobbies. I love you all. And I love you, J.Crew.

    Mom hahaha you’re killing me. Lauren I share your affinity for JCrew as you know. I always say if I lived in NY I would want to work for them, I think Jenna Lyons is so inspiring, and Mickey Drexler is too. Their business strategy is so interesting. They have such a strong brand identity and point of view which translates through their merchandising techniques. I think that’s why girls like you and I love them so much! 🙂

    • WHY don’t you do it?! Oh please please move to NYC and do it. Then it will be Lindsay’s picks instead of Jenna’s picks! Sounds much better. I dont know a THING about their business strategy… I would be so interested to know though!

    Love all of these! I think that you and Lindsay should be the next Jenna Lyons. Do it! And do it big.
