a resounding kudos.

Got the J.Crew June 2010 catalog in the mail today.
Strong work J.Crew, strong work.
I was immediately drawn to the jewelry they paired with the swimsuits. I was ooo'ing and ahhh'ing over the color combinations, soft vs. hard, and overall look.



But then I had to slap myself around and get back to reality... who the hell wears jewelry with their swimsuit?! And not just any jewelry - costume jewelry! I'd get run off the Charleston beaches for being too high maintanence.
Nice try J.Crew. You almost tricked me.
One thing I am loving, however, are the lipstick colors on these models with the slate dresses. So unexpected. It's hard to tell in this picture but look online at the their catalog and you'll see it's this amazing shade of magenta.

Have a great night! I'm off to support my friend who is having a trunk show of sorts. Should be a great time! I'll try to take pictures for you - the location is a cool one.

I've been loving some J.Crew lately! They've gotten so much edgier/more daring than they were in their earlier, more tailored/conservative days. Today I'm wearing a light gray tank I recently bought with some bold ruffly accents down the middle . . . it's on my radar for sure now. (And now I want that catalogue . . . loving the look of that polka-dotted swimwear!)

that's hilarious... before i scrolled down past the photo i was asking myself the SAME THING... "who wears jewelry with a swimsuit? wouldn't that totally ruin your tan lines?" haha!

I love the purple floral bikini in the second spread. Too bad it's probably $90, and while I did it once, I can't imagine spending that much on a bathing suit again.

While I'm liking J.Crew's look more these days, I can't justify their prices. Out of control.

Love the gray bridesmaid dresses with the pink lipstick. The one on the far right in particular. Very classy color combo don't you think?

i noticed their lipstick too! love how it ties the different dresses together, along with the cute messy bun!

jcrew is the best, even if they do wear jewelry with their swimsuits. i ordered two since they are on sale with free shipping!

If you ever go to South Beach you can pull off the jewelry swimsuit look. But then again you can also pull off the no swimsuit look there. That just South Beach.

Beautiful pictures. I love those statement necklaces, although I agree that I probably wouldn't wear them with a swimsuit!
