J Crew, Classics with a Twist
A couple of weeks ago our local J Crew asked me to come in and do some styling on the spot. As a J Crew junkie that fell out of love during the last few years, I was excited about it for a few reasons…
1. I love meeting all of you guys IRL (in real life)
2. I’m in my zone when I’m styling someone or there’s a fashion challenge that needs to be fixed (like what do I wear with this?? or what do I wear to my high school reunion, a funeral, a work presentation, my kids’ soccer game – you get the idea)
3. And, I was able to get all up close and personal with J Crew’s latest collection – it’s the first collection with new head designer, Chris Benz (who originally worked at J Crew under Jenna Lyons back in the day).
Like J Crew Back in its Heyday
I’m happy to say this new collection gives me all of the classic J Crew feels, but updated for 2020. For a while, after Jenna Lyons left, it was like J Crew lost its identity, and quite frankly the quality seemed to plummet as well. But, this collection is back on track. Yay for us all!
