J.Crew of Seasons Past: July 2004 & Spring 2005
Fellow JCA Shariyu, from the lovely "viva la beagle" blog, posted the catalogs for both July 2004 and Spring 2005! To see all the images, check out her "JCREW JULY 2004" and "JCREW Summer 2005" posts.
Remember when the catalog covers use to bring a special offer like $20 off an order of $80+? Those were the days! J.Crew still offers special codes in catalogs (but they tend to be mailed to new customers).
Flipping through the pages, it is clear how far J.Crew has come in terms of style. J.Crew definitely is more fashion-forward today with their style guide. But there is still a lot of love for the older catalogs as they feature classic items that stand the test of time. (J.Crew still offers some of those same basic staples today!)
What are your thoughts on these catalogs from the past? Do you enjoy looking through them for outfit inspirations? Do you find these looks classic (like I do) or do you think they are dated?
