Window Shopping Internet Style: J.Crew

Well, since I was perusing the J.Crew website  trying to choose a bubble necklace, I figured I'd go ahead and check out what other kinds of goodies they had at J.Crew for the fall. And boy were there a few things I just loved! So, I figured I'd share some of them with you. What do you think of my picks?

Blythe Blouse $128

I absolutely love the Blythe blouse. When I worked at J.Crew over the holidays, I was always eyeing it. And now, I kick myself for not getting it. Don't get me wrong, I got some great stuff while I was there. I just never pulled the trigger on Blythe. I love a flowy silk shirt. It's great for work, a night out for dinner, heck, it's even great with a pair of shorts on the weekend. And now they have it in this gorgeous cobalt blue hue they've named Byzantine Blue. By the way, did you know that the color cobalt is supposed to cheer you up? I believe it. It makes me happy to look at it.

I'm also totally loving the retro jade color that J.Crew is featuring this season. It's absolutely beautiful. And in keeping with my silk shirt fascination, I'm totally lusting after this beautiful tie neck blouse. The tie neck makes it a bit dressy, I wonder how I'd make it work for every day, since I get to work from home and don't have to rock office attire very often. I'm sure if I had this, I'd figure out a way to dress it down and make it casual.
Tie Neck Top $110

I love J.Crew sweaters and the Tippi sweater with its playful and classic polka dots makes me smile. Another versatile pice that could perk up my wardrobe.

And if it's not obvious that I'm totally obsessed with retro jade, here's another piece to prove it. The Tippi cardigan comes in an array of gorgeous bright colors, but I gotta say retro jade is calling my name. While I need another cardigan like I need a hole in my head, I don't care. A cardi is a classic and I love to have one in every color. Cardi me!

I guess you could say I'm also a bit in love with Byzantine Blue, considering this gorgeous suede satchel is the second item I've featured in this color. You'd be right. I love a bright gorgeous bag. The picture looks like it'd be a good size, but it's called a mini so I wonder just how big/small it is in person. I love the fact that it has both a handle and a shoulder strap too. And how's that for a beautiful pop of color?  J.Crew's leather purses are amazingly supple and rival other high-end brands you see out there. You can't really go wrong. It's a classic bag in a color I think won't quickly go out of style.

You can't close out a J.Crew picks post without at least one cashmere item. If you haven't tried their cashmere you are missing out. It's absolutely to die for. Do I really need to talk up cashmere? Just look at how bright this neon pink is and imagine it all soft against your skin. Tell me you didn't swoon just a little.
