My J Crew Obsession

A lot of you have taken notice of my LOVE of J Crew...

I realize that this chain retailer does not fit into my "shop small, shop local" platform... But 3 years ago I got into a major "Quality over Quantity" kick.  I had gotten a "big girl" job and finally had enough money that Forever 21 wasn't my go-to store anymore!!  By this point I was absolutely fed-up with Forever21 quality and how the clothes only made it through the wash for one season! Around this very same time, low-and-behold, Columbia, SC got a J Crew store in Trenholm Plaza... I fell in love!!  Its pretty expensive for just your run of the mill, I'm bored, shopping adventure.  But, if you're like me, you enjoy going in there once a month or so and getting 1-2 timeless pieces that have such impeccable quality that they will last you for as long as you can fit into them!!!  And also, if you're like me, you're ok with that... Because you understand that you get what you pay for, and that paying for quality is worth it!!!

Here is one of my favorite outfits I have ever gotten from J Crew...  The prices may give you sticker shock, and you may not be able to get the whole outfit today, but just get your favorite piece!  You won't regret it!!

Pants - HERE ($79.50) I suggest going down a size!

Buttondown - HERE ($69.50)

Sweater - HERE ($79.50)

Shoes - HERE ($138) They have sold out of my exact pair, but these are the same color!
