2014 - 2- Feb - J Crew Style Guide

If you saw my Insta this morning, I was at the doctor's office. I've long been back at home, but can't sleep. So what better entertainment than to look thru and share the latest J. Crew catalog. I only went thru to part of Crewcuts. I will add the rest of that and mens later today if I feel up to it. In the meantime, I'm trying to hang out in bed, even if I'm not sleeping.

The flu is kicking butt and taking names. If you have flu symptoms, get to the dr within 48 hours to possibly get Tamiflu. I thought I had a cold that would go away, but have been sick on and off for awhile. This last time sick for a week. I will admit I only went in because Mini G was very lethergic yesterday and we took her in. After her need to get meds I decided I should have myself checked out. Next time I'll act faster. And next time I'll get a flu shot. This is the first year in awhile that I didn't get one. My dr. said she had one and she still got sick anyway, but I'm still going to get one next season.

I'm really digging the silver mirror bow Viv flats, paneled zip pocket Pixies and Hughes purse, The lace-stripe silk skirt probly isn't a match for me, but I like it anyway. There's a lot of denim, as mentioned on The Mothership. I already wear jeans all the time, but not sure I'll be sporting it up like they're depicting in the catalog. Today I found out I'm only 5'. WTH! I thought I was 5' 1/2" and rounded up to 5'2" since I'm rarely in my stocking feet. Five feet? I need to get a treadmill desk to combat this shrinkage. Shoutout to silver_lining, who kicked off the catalog party this morning on her Insta. Another source if the slideshow doesn't work for you for some reason.

1/27 ETA: J. Crew is adding catalog pages to Pinterest.

  1. Too much denim... I can't wear that to my office since I work in a bank.

    I am liking the campbell capris in abstract wave print. I will wait for some reviews to decide if I order them or not.

    1. chercherry - Oh, definitely no denim in banking. I like the look of those print capris, too. Will review if I see them irl to try on.

  3. Thanks for the shoutout, Gigi. I think there's kind of something for everyone in this catalog. I'm not a fan of the neon pages (they remind me of Manhunter), but like the red braided leather belt (this one's actually in the current sale section), cashmere basketweave baseball sweater, stretch matchsticks, merino tunic, and hooded basketweave jacket. Looking forward to seeing IRL reviews and pics.

    Hope you and Mini are feeling better - the flu can be so nasty! Stay hydrated!

    1. silver_lining - We are on the meds and I expect to be much better by the end of the week. I added Gatorade to my hot tea, water, apple cider vinegar, and water/oj/cranberry juice line up. My lips look like the cracked desert right now. I get to have codeine syrup, but they were out and Rx has to wait until tomorrow afternoon. A big thaaaaank you to Lil Wayne and his sizzurp for helping clog up the pharmacy system. They couldn't send the request via computer. They printed out what looked like a proclamation on security paper and I had to take that to the pharma.

      I don't like the neon either. Forgot to say I like the Callie metallic sandals. Although J Crew sandals tend to be hard and flat as wool.

    1. Laura - I'm still sitting in bed. I'm not messing around. 30+ deaths in the Bay Area, I believe. I don't stay locked to the news, but that's one headline I saw. Apparently some had pre-existing health conditions, but a few did not. I didn't want to take any chances, so I went in.

  7. I hope you feel better! I have been drooling over the Teddie Satchel in henna since it came out in the last style guide! I want to buy it - but I wish it would go down a little in price!
