Random thought... Did anyone else read the "beach, please" line as "bitch, please!" Because that is totally how I saw and heard it in my head. ;)

Good luck to all the J.Crew Aficionadas! :)


  1. Bitch please...lol! Rofl Alexis you can be so funny. I didn't read every word of the copy. Not even the grand, opening headline. I was too busy marveling at the fact that J Crew is actually utilizing social media, in the way of Pinterest, for a sweeps.

    1. Thanks Gigi! ;) I too was surprised by Jcrews move to use Pinterest. I guess they are trying to be hip on the nets.;)

  2. Alexis I totally read it as that. I thought "wait, what?!" And had to re-read it. I had a good laugh. Cheeky.

    I know that I am from St. Lucia but haven't been home in two years. Sigh. I'd die to go so I'm opening going to use my Pinterest account for the first time. Do I need to mention how beautiful it is there? The hotel is in a great location not far from the Pitons and the Sulphur Springs and of course a beach in St. Lucia is never more than 30 minutes away.

    1. Lol! Glad I wasn't the only one who read it wrong. ;)
