J.Crew Event

I'm such a huge fan of J.Crew so I was so excited when I received an invitation to their opening party for the new location in Pacific Centre. And to top it all off, I was one of the lucky few girls to have a private tour from Tom Mora, J.Crew's head of women's design!
It was really interesting to see the designs from his point of view and understand his vision and inspiration. He was such a down-to-earth man and meeting him made me even more proud to wear the label. He draws a lot of his inspiration from menswear and loves to incorporate it into his women's wear designs, mixing the masculine with the feminine (classic J.Crew). He also mentioned that working with such stylish women inspires him everyday (I definitely don't find that hard to believe -- how could you not be inspired working with Jenna Lyons?!) They've brought back a few of their retro prints this season (the sail boat print is especially adorable) and as always, lots of fun bright colours, beautiful light materials and plenty of nautical inspiration.

My favourite J.Crew pieces always tend to be their striped tops. You know how much I love stripes! And J.Crew just seems to do them so perfectly. Add a cute pair of shorts, a menswear blazer, and a statement necklace and I'm a happy girl. And now I have a new striped obsession and this time it's a skirt! The way it was styled in the store couldn't be more perfect -- paired with a floral sweater over a white button-up, a tangerine clutch, and a chunky gold necklace -- I need this entire mannequin.

For the occasion, I wore my striped J.Crew top and floral statement necklace with an oversized blazer and short leather skirt. I love this sort of combo and always feel super comfortable and cute whenever I wear it. Nothing is too tight or restricting, but you still get a good amount of leg. Win-Win.


I was wearing:

J.Crew Top
J.Crew Necklace
Zara Blazer
BlueJuice Skirt
Kookai Belt
Zara Heels
Botkier Bag
Sass & Bide Sunglasses

Thanks so much for visiting!
