J.Crew inspried

The orange ruffled blouse is one of my most under-worn pieces. It's J.Crew piece that I'd wanted when I originally spotted it in the catalog, but thankfully did not spend $80 on.

It came into my possession years later while perusing the racks of my favorite secondhand store, Coco's on the Green. Thus making the fact that I've only worn it a handful of times more palatable.

Mostly, I just like to go back to the way it was styled in that original catalog and try to replicate it.

  1. Gotta love Coco's haha. We both had some pretty amazing finds. This one for you and when I found the matching jacket for my pants ;)

  2. What a lucky duck you are to find that secondhand! It is a lovely blouse. I have a similar one that I bought at Kohl's years and years ago and while I haven't worn it in a while, it has gotten so much use. I love this one under the cardigan(s).

  3. That is so awesome that you scored the blouse at a fraction of the cost! I love how it looks with the cardigan and pearls for a preppy look.

  6. I had a very similar blouse from J. Crew in an identical shade... which I also did not wear enough. Now that I see you in yours, I'm wondering what happened to it, because I'm feeling inspired to give the unusual colour another shot - I never imagined it could look so fabulous with navy!

  16. Pretty sure you'll be able to replicate the entire J. Crew catalog one day with your fashion sense, Miss Lydia! Or they'll be comin' to you. I love the yellow under the black and white--yummy combo! :D

  21. I can't even count the times I've tried to copy the J.Crew catalog on both hands. I love their styling so much and I think you did a great job in replicating the original outfit :) I always "have to" buy J.Crew full price as their online outlet does not permit shipping outside the USA :( xo

  22. I'd love to visit this Cocos place you always talk about. You do so well there. Don't you just love using the J. Crew look book as a dress-by-number guide. They make it so easy.

  26. What a beautiful blouse!! I'm sure once the weather warms up in a few months you'll find new ways to wear it. I'm sure it'd look lovely with a skirt!

  28. I love the blouse, it is a pretty colour and the ruffles are beautiful. It looks so classy against the black and white. I must get some use from a few under utilised pieces that I have in mind too.
