I don’t know about you but I think J Crew has their mojo back. Last year everyone was questioning whether J Crew could find their way and get customers back in the stores? You can read about their struggles in fortune here and Forbes here. The stores were really looking shabby (well they still do). They have hired Chris Benz as the creative director to replace Jenna Lyons (you can read about that in Vanity Fair here). and the successful Madewell has filed for its own IPO. Last I heard they still had not hired a CEO, but I am rooting for their success. You gotta love a brand that isn’t afraid to use older models.
They still have a ways to go but I personally found a heap of things I am loving right now at J Crew. Here are some of my Over 50 Fashion J Crew Fall Picks.
First off I will confess I am coveting these leather leggings.
The reviews are amazing. Honestly,I have never heard such good reviews on leather leggings. I have had some before and they were kind of disappointing. The only problem with these…the price. I know…I know if you wear them a lot it won’t matter. I am going to put together some looks with these fabulous leggings as a base. Maybe they will send me a pair in the mail (dream on). They have a vegan version here that is much more reasonable.

I feel like you can wear jeans almost anywhere as long as you dress them up with a pretty shirt or jacket. J Crew has a slew of interesting blouses and shirts right now. Here are some of my favorites.
I am not a silk person but for those who are this roamin tiger number is a beauty, love this red lace number, love anything leopard even if it is silk, black lace what is not to like, pale pink lace yum, burgundy velvet at a good price, I don’t care for florals or ruffles normally but love this gold floral beauty, love the autumnal colors of this floral perfect shirt, gold eyelet what’s not to like?
Joni from Cote de Texas has a great fashion post up as well. You might want to check it out here. I think she could just do my shopping for me. She has great style. Her sidebar always gets me into trouble.
I hope you enjoyed my over 50 fall fashion picks from J Crew. I am heading to Rountop tomorrow. With the humidity index it should be around 130. If you see someone gasping for air and sweating like a pig, that would be me!
Stop back on Thursday, Annie Mary Ann and I have a great group of bloggers who are sharing their fall mantles. It should be lots of fun!
