Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to the 2014 J.CREW CHALLENGE! Ahh!
Can you believe it is finally here! Oh, it’s as exciting as Christmas morning. You know there are presents under the tree…you can see them…you can count how many…BUT you do not know what’s inside. Oh, decorating my apartment for Christmas is going to be so much fun! I think I want a navy blue tree with silver and gold decorations! Wouldn’t that be fab!
Okay–I am so sorry, y’all…I am quite distracted today. Perhaps three Pumpkin Spice Lattes were two cups too many *wink* Now, before I get distracted by something else, let’s take a look at the FIRST outfit of the 2014 J.Crew Challenge. Whoo hoo!
Oh, my goodness! I cannot believe it–the J.Crew Challenge is finally back! It’s been a full YEAR now…phew, time sure does fly when you are having fun *wink*
Before I reveal the very first outfit of the brand new J.Crew Challenge tomorrow, I want to give a little info on how many pieces I am going to be working with this year + how many outfits I have planned + a brief throwback to some of the hottest outfits from the 30 Day J.Crew Challenge! Ah–we have lots to do, so let’s quit our lollygagging and get to work *wink*
For this year’s J.Crew Challenge, I will be working with 16 items (that’s 4 more than last year) to create a variety of lovely looks. It is going to be so fabulous, and I cannot wait to share all of the awesome outfits with y’all!
For all of the new readers out there, here are the goals of the VIP J.Crew Challenge:
Encourage y’all to invest in quality and versatile clothing items and accessories.
Inspire y’all to get your money’s worth out of your apparel.
Now, let’s take a look back at five of the hottest J.Crew outfits from last year’s 30 Day J.Crew Challenge. Whoo hoo!
Hello, my fabulouses! Today’s Superb Seven outfit is so lovely and perfect for an internship meeting or a sweet lunch date with that hottie you met at the campus café. The chic combination of light petal pink and sleek black is so classic and charming. Accenting this look with shiny gold wedges, long tassel earrings, and handmade necklace adds just the right amount of shimmer and bling.
For a bit fun, I added a pop of color to this ensemble with the hot pink Nine West bag that I got for only FIVE DOLLARS…originally…originally? Y’all will have to check out my Grand Haul video below to find out the original price :)
Hello, my fabulouses! Have you every wondered what to wear to a college interview? Then this Superb Seven outfit is perfect for you! When putting together an outfit for a college interview, it is important to look professional and poised, yet youthful and trendy. Here are five easy steps to help you achieve that look.
Start with a classic black pencil skirt.
Find a patterned or brightly hued blazer.
Toss on a graphic t-shirt that is mature (yes, that means no cats), but with a pinch of youthfulness (sparkle, bright color, and so forth).
Look for a colorful and comfortable pair of kitten heel pumps that will coordinate with the blazer.
Keep your jewelry as minimal as possible. This is NOT the time for wild arm candy.
Blazer: Jones New York, The Outlet Shops of Grand River
Tee: Guess, The Outlet Shops of Grand River
Pencil Skirt: Guess, The Outlet Shops of Grand River
