It's That Time of the Month: Junkie Cravings.

At around 4:30PM, like most afternoons, I hear the jingle of keys and the screeching of my building door and immediately jump off the coach, tip toe to the front door, and stare out the peep hole.This time it was different,  " I know he has what Im looking for". I see the postman divvy the mail from his messanger bag and i see from the corner of the peep hole he has what I have been waiting for. What could I have so eagerly been waiting for? My J.Crew catalog of course. I have been in love with J.Crew as long as I can remember, and receiving their monthly catalog or rather "Style Guide",  for those in the know, is like waiting for the September issue of your favorite magazine. Its definitely an event. In my previous post you could see that my personal style is classic, but has modernist twist. Morever, I like distictive and well-made pieces and J.Crew contines to parallel my style and visa versa.

J.Crew's July 2012 Style Guide delivered the results as expected, the pages bursted with jaw-dropping hues and the most impecable prints. So without further ado; here is what I am lusting over from J.Crew this month...

Garment-dyed vest in "Neon Peach"
Cece colorblock ballet flats in "Bright Dahlia"
Tillary purse in "Bright Mint"
Edie attaché bag in "Oasis Green"
Valentina patent pumps in "Apricot Mist"
High-waist double-serge short in "Dazzling Sun"

  1. I got the garment-dyed vest in neon peach and it is truly neon. The pictures I saw did not depict the color of the vest, I mean it is seriously so bright I violently regret buying it. I'm also naturally tan so it made my skin look even darker, don't lust after it unless you want to look like a construction worker!

    1. Thank you so much for letting me know. I was hugely considering making this purchase because the vest has gone on sale. Perhaps if your interested in selling it, you should put it on Ebay and let me know!
