J.Crew & Nordstrom Collab is FAB!

Posted By: Terri

It was only a matter of time that two iconic American retailers banded together for a classic collaboration. Enter J. Crew and the new offering via Nordstrom. Yep you heard me. Jenna Lyons  has designed a beautiful collection available at Nordstroms and it is filled with pieces that flatter your figure with sleek styling and has everything a girl could need to put a little pep in her wardrobe. As in all things when designing fashion it starts with an “idea” (see preliminary sketch below)and  morphs into a constructed garment.

Sophia Webster & J. Crew Collab= Shoe Heaven

How does that saying go? “If it’s not broke than don’t fix it.” Well that would certainly be the case when it comes to the design talents of Sophia Webster (uber fabulous British shoe designer with her own line of shoes who FYI began her career under Nickolas Kirkwood) and J. Crew.

Wayyyyy back in Spring 2014 the first collaboration between J. Crew and Sophia Webster debuted-can we say “sold out” faster than you can click your heels together. So another collaboration followed for Autumn 2014 and you know where this is going-another gorgeous collection-another sell out.  So it’s really no surprise that J. Crew and Sophia Webster have embraced the idea of a Holiday Collection and right on cue the line is available as are most things for holiday-RIGHT NOW. The line consists of 7 styles in a variety of patterns, colors and designs. Price points range from $320.00 to $695.00 and can be purchased online and in select stores including London, New York and Hong Kong. 

Eva T-Strap $595.00

Each and every style is beyond beautiful and will certainly make the simplest of holiday attire attain glamour worthy status. Perhaps even more alluring is realizing that even after the holidays are over you could wear any one of these styles to “pump up” your outfits year round. Don’t you love a little early holiday shopping especially when the person you’re shopping for is you?!

Maybe  “The third try is the charm” but in this case we can only keep our fingers crossed that there will be a fourth collaboration. Thank you J. Crew and Sophia Webster-it’s a collection straight from shoe heaven.

Mini Make Up Kit….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Every once in awhile  I come across an absolute “must have” for every Glamour Girl.  I came across this mini make up brush set from J. Crew and was ready to push the purchase button when the SOLD OUT sign pops up from out of no where. WH.H.A.A.A.T!  Please tell me it isn’t so. I love this mini make up brush set and I thought you would too. For  $36.50 it’s a perfect for your purse not to mention a great gift idea for the impending holidays.  I hope that J.. Crew will reconsider to restock. Stay tuned…

I admit it! I am a major coat-a-holic. I LOVE coats. Short coats, pea coats, trench coats, faux fur, leather, suede…etc…etc.. you name it I probably would like it hanging in my closet if it’s a coat that flatters and is fashionable.   Today as I was busy sourcing numerous sale sites I couldn’t help notice all the gorgeous coats in a wide array of yummy colors from J. Crew.Take a look at a few of my favorites and see if you too might be signing up for my club: Coat-a-holics who never want to recover.

A peak inside J Crew’s Jenna Lyons home.

Through the Front Door...

Admit it, we all love to see how other people live. So imagine having the rare opportunity to take a peek into the home of one of the most notable trend setters and style mavens in fashion. Enter Jenna Lyons-President and Creative Director of J. Crew.  Ms. Lyons is currently going through a rather public (not to mention nasty) divorce from artist husband Vincent Mazeau. As most break ups go between two prominent people the first thing to divide is the home. Originally built  in the 1880’s this Park Slope home is  being sold  by  Sotheby’s with an asking price of  3.75 million.  The home is magnificent, decorated in a very stylish and uber chic aesthetic covering  4400 square feet. As in all things that Jenna Lyons has a hand in-the interior looks picture perfect. How sad that the marriage apparently wasn’t. Here’s to wishing Ms. Lyons and family happier days ahead.

***Update: Just minutes ago a newsfeed came across the web stating that the home has been sold for   4 million  (7 per cent above the asking price) to Vincent and Tracy Martin.

The Darling Darby….

The Darby Calf Hair $275.00 

Show of hands… (And be honest). Have you ever heard of the Darby Loafer? Me neither.  I had never come across the term: “Darby Loafer” until …well-.until I shopped the latest J. Crew Catalog. Yep-there I was… flipping the pages of the fall  J. Crew Fashion Flyer and wha-lah-the Darby Loafer. I immediately went to Wikipedia and found out that the Darby was a slipper originally designed for gentlemen. O.K. I’m getting it. Leave it to the peeps at J. Crew to come up with a Darling Darby Loafer that has the lines of the original gentleman’s slipper mixed with the upscale classic styling of the penny loafer and manufactured in a collection of uber stylish materials. We are talking calf hair, tweed and GLITTER!  The Darby is not only darling but comfortable. Who knew that loafing around could be so stylish?!  

 

 The Darby Glitter Loafer $215.00

Every Glamour Girl loves a GREAT tee. And if per chance that tee is adorned with a bit of bling (who are we kidding-it’s a sequin extravaganza), available in 3 captivating colors and priced at an oh-so-affordable $78.00…all the better! 

As the Glamour Girl saying goes:

There’s nothing like a little bling to make an outfit sing!

 Have a great weekend!

Category: Fashion

J. Crew just moved into Madison Avenue! Yes, you heard me right, my  dear Glamour Girls! The upscale, upbeat retailer just opened a two story boutique on June 2, dedicated to all things bridal. The one-stop dream shop for the recently engaged offers more than a lineup of white evening dresses. There are bridal jewels designed by Dana Lorenz, Miriam Haskel, and Lulu Frost; headpieces by Albertus Swanepoel; limited edition nail polishes by Essie; honeymoon-ready lingerie by Cosabella; and a new collection of sparkling cocktail dresses that work just as well for guests as they do for bridesmaids. Future brides take note to schedule early—more than 350 appointments have already been booked in the private dress boutique.
