J Crew is my New Obsession

...sigh.  Oh, Gap and Banana I have loved thee.  It has been a great few years, I assure you, you have run my family up some big bucks that we have finally paid off, but I think those days are over.  I have found a new love.

I have a wedding coming up at the end of the month and desperately needed a dress.  I HATE dress shopping, usually more than bathing suit shopping.  Well, that is, besides when I shopped for my wedding dress.  I have tried on too many dresses in the past week.  Finally, I gave J Crew a shot.  I know they aren't going to have any crazy party dresses but I figured I would give it a try.  It took a few tries, but once I put this winner on, I knew it.  It is not something that I would normally pick for a wedding, but it is an afternoon wedding so I wanted to pick something a) not black, b) not over the top cocktail and c) something I could wear a sweater over if it got too cold, since it will still be March.

So, drum roll please....

That's it ladies, I love it.  They didn't have this color so I got a tan and white design instead.  On top of that, I am obsessed with the spring/summer collection at J Crew.  I am going to wait another month or two, but I think I may need a few more clothes for this, yup, I'm pretty sure.  So J Crew, I'll be back


  1. My sister is a J Crew nut. I guess I'll have to go check that out.

  2. I am a HUGE J.Crew fan. I probably own more of their label than any other. To save my budget I resist the urge to actually "shop" the store but instead head directly to their sale area. I have found some amazing and expensive pieces for pennys on the dollar. The trick is to stop in often because the good stuff goes fast. Great dress choice too!

  3. Good to know! And you can be sure I will be trying that out! We have two outlet stores in the area!

  4. Love it! I think it would actually look cuter in tan.

    I found you via Friday Follow and am happy to be following. :)
