waaaaay to preppy on me. Preppy I am not. Nope, not even a little bit. It makes me sad (you'd think I would have a better perspective, but alas...) because I love the polished/tattered mixed vibe that J. Crew is pulling off. So I thought about it...there has to be a way that I can work something out. Then it occurred to me, no one said I had to shop the women's section. So I didn't. I shopped men's for oxford shirts and button ups. I shopped the boy's for navy school-boy blazers that are shrunken and look just a bit off. I had resolved myself to the idea that the women's section just wasn't for me until J. Crew announced their Fenton/Fallon collaboration. It is, in a word, awesome. Yep. I have been wearing the Carrington chain bracelet basically nonstop. Very happy about it.

OK, so full disclosure...I like to shop a bit. And when I say a bit, I mean a lot. I am a big believer in buying what you love, assuming you can afford it/figure out a reasonable payment plan (kidding on that last). That being said, I have made a purchase or two that have gotten some raised eyebrows...most recently questioned are my AMAZING Miu Miu bird mary-jane. They aren't as obviously beautiful as a Louboutin pump, but (as I explained to my husband) that's the point. They're off, they're odd, they are so cool. And dificult to find, mind you. It made the actual purchase all the more exciting.
Wearing them with:
*Black skinny jeans and a men's shirt
*Vintage Levi's cut-offs and a t-shirt
