Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. ~Coco Chanel
I am in lurve with this bow tie/necklace combo.
I could listen to Jenna talk all day. Her voice is so lovely.
Ladies and Gentlemen: After much clicking and scrolling, squinting and head tilting, I’m ready to share (the rest of) my favorite looks from NYFW.
My top 3:
Geek chic. Print mixing. What’s not to luv?
I’m a sucker for an oversized floral. Jenna Lyons talks about this particular one here.
These pants are killer. That floral applique down the sides? Mel-ting.
This is one of 11 clever ads in J.Crew’s fall 2012 campaign featuring a mix of successful and fashionable influencers, like Julia Sarr-Jamois, fashion editor for Wonderland magazine (above); Le Figaro’s deputy editor Virginie Mouzatand; and David Karp, Tumblr’s founder and CEO.
Check out the entire campaign here.
Over the weekend, I got a chance to watch “J.Crew and the Man Who Dressed America,” a CNBC documentary, and I really liked it.
The subject is J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler. If you’re into fashion or retail or marketing or corporate rockstars, you should definitely check it out.
One tidbit that grabbed me: A longtime customer emailed a complaint to J.Crew (addressed to Drexler) about a jacket that was only offered in small sizes. And within 20 minutes of hitting “send,” Drexler called her personally.
And the jacket was available in more sizes the next season.
