J.Crew of Seasons Past: {a look in the closet}

It's that time again, to take a look at an image of J.Crew pieces from seasons past! As caribbelle (in this post) so beautifully termed, "ye olde j crew of yore".

This post features another image from J.Crew's Spring 2008 Collection Look Book. I love the use of blues for the simple outfit and the pop of color for the intricate shoes. Marvelous!

What are your thoughts on the look(s)/item(s) from the past? Do you find the look(s)/item(s) classic or do you think they are dated?


  1. All of the top designers- Karl L, Calvin K, Donna K, Ralph, even YSL, all look to their archives to maintain the integrity of their unique identity and vision of their lines...They know who their customer is and keep that is mind at all times. I wish JCrew had that institutional memory. It seems they are forgetting "who brung 'em to the dance"...

  2. Totally love the whole look and I have those shoes :)))

  3. I wish they still made shoes like that. They always had such unique footwear- and they never go out of style. I bet you still wear those shoes. My favorite "go to" pair are the black and white tweed w/ gold metallic threads, peep toe with a little medallion and leather wrapped heel- still perfect and I think bought them in '05 or 06

  4. The girl looks she is ready to go potty.sans toilet.

  5. What are those shoes called? They are gorgeous. I wish they would re-issue them!
