30 For 30 Remix, Day 3: Loving J. Crew

Chambray shirt: J.Crew, floral skirt: J.Crew, orange flats: Nine West, bag: Coach, belt: Target, ring and necklace: The Limited, shades: Urban Outfitters.

In 2011, I fell in love with J. Crew. I love going to their store and touching everything—the sequins, the cashmere, the corduroy. I love their jewelry. I love their flats and scarves. I love their colors. I love the timeless style of J. Crew. I do not, however, like their crazy ridiculous prices.

Unless they’re on sale. Or better yet, clearance sale.

I bought this chambray shirt last June on sale. I don’t remember how much it was, but it was cheap. This skirt is brand-new and this is my first time wearing it. It was originally $98, but I got it on clearance for $23. Bam. Definitely worth being elbowed and pushed around by the post-Christmas shoppers on December 26th.

In fact, everything I’m wearing today I got on sale. The bag was bought on sale at an outlet on a Black Friday a couple of years ago. The belt was in a random clearance pile at Target. The shoes were bought on Black Friday last year at an outlet for 30% off.

What can I say? I love a bargain. And loving bargains...and fashion...and J. not have to be mutually exclusive.

You're one of my best-dresed friends. Your style is really cool. Just saying.
