The Truth about me and J Crew

I am an obsessed woman. O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D. with J Crew. I honestly can't help myself. Back when I was in High School I used to dream of owning something from J Crew. My closet was mostly American Eagle... and a few choice pieces from Abercrombie and Fitch (Hollister didn't come around until I was in college). Want to know where I used to mostly shop? Pac Sun. I worked there for a year during High School and why not? I got a discount! Oh, and I also wore colorful Dickies and Hurley pants (anyone else remember those?) And those mary jane doc martins-those were super cool. Needless to say my wardrobe was teeny-bopper to the fullest. And then it was time for me to go to college and my mom decided I needed a more sophisticated look. Did we go to J Crew? No. There was not a J Crew for miles and miles. So mom took me to Express. For 3 years she took me there buying me wardrobe "staples" but I always went back to my Pac Sun/Abercrombie staples. I wanted to be stylish! I really tried to look cute on Sundays... but those were the only days I felt like getting out of my old tshirt and jeans uniform. Then I met Devin. And he created a monster. He took me to my very first J Crew right after we were married. I remember walking in and hitting that warm store and my eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store. Oh the cardigans! The pencil skirts! Oh the color and the beauty! And I was a goner. Ever since that December day almost 4 years ago J Crew has been my go to store. Most of my closet now is in fact J Crew. Husband says I need a new store because I have most everything that they sell there. I disagree. Why mess with what works? I will always love J Crew for it's preppy goodness.
So thank you J Crew. For making cute stuff so I can fill my closet.
And that's the truth about me and J Crew
