J.Crew & Nordstrom Collab is FAB!

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.

Spot on Style….

I have always subscribed to the notion that any sort of animal print is a neutral and I guess I’m in good company. (Just a little side note-I am a TOTAL animal lover so when I say animal print I do mean FAUX).

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.
