Personal Shopper – Sans Price Tag!
The luxury of having a personal shopper has always been reserved for the rich and famous. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered that J. Crew offers their own personal shopping service – FOR FREE! You can take advantage of this service online, over the phone or in-store — which is what I did yesterday….
I had the good fortune of meeting Max – my new J. Crew personal shopper – who shared some insider tips on the very Fab & Fru side of J Crew. In addition, he also took the time to show me the proper way to roll a shirt sleeve and tuck the tail of an extra long belt. Needless to say, I’m in love! Not only did Max help me find some classic staples that look and feel great, he helped me find affordable pieces that fit my my budget constraints.
Check out my Fab & Fru FINDS that are so versatile, I can wear them all year round!
No. 2 Pencil Skirts
This skirt is so flattering I felt like I lost five pounds the second I put it on. But the most FAB part of all – the fabric options. As I tried on this little number in the “Sovereign Paisley” fabric, Max told me that this elegant print actually comes from famous Italian mill Ratti – who, by the way, also produces designs for Prada! Thankfully, at $148 this day-into-night piece comes without the Prada price tag!
Have you heard about this one…?! Coming in fall, this super high-end, famed designer is teaming up with J. Crew to produce a line of heels. Now I’m not saying they’ll be cheap, but they will be cheap-er than Manolo’s original line. Why am I mentioning it now – other than it’s time to start saving? Because if you sign up for a J. Crew personal shopper, you get sneak peaks and early access to new products – so you can bet I will be speed dialing Max to get a look-see at these bad boys!
J. Crew Cashmere Tees are one (well, two) of my year-round, must-have Fab & Fru items. Get one in long ($158) and short ($128) sleeve – you won’t regret the investment. This wardrobe workhorse, made from high quality cashmere, is usually seen at much higher price points (believe me, cheap Cashmere is just not worth it). Give a warm welcome to the most versatile piece in your closet!| Print
