Love the Look

February 2, 2009

Thanks to a tip via twitter from Decor8 blogger Holly Becker, I perused the J Crew Spring Preview online this morning and stumbled upon this lovely ensemble:

I absolutely LOVE that skirt, and I love the muted, feminine shirt and sweater paired with the bright and shiny skirt. Perfectly done, slightly ecclectic [my favorite] overall look. Makes me want to go buy some ultra shiny yellow fabric and attempt to make a similar skirt. Oh that’s right, I still need a sewing machine… and to learn how to sew. Back to J Crew…

When I was at The Grove in L.A. last weekend, I took a brief minute to stop into J Crew after being drawn to the sight of a gray and yellow printed pencil skirt [which I don’t see anywhere online, or I would provide a link to it] and all this to say, I was quite impressed with everything I saw. I have always liked J Crew, but it has been rare that I have loved anything J Crew. It seems this spring collection, and the early spring stuff they already have in stores is striking the fashion chord in me.

Oh, btw, the look pictured isn’t available until March.
