Why To Shop J. Crew Today…

So, if you haven’t heard, J. Crew is collaborating with all the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award winners.  In case you are behind, CFDA stands for Council of Fashion Designers of America and for the past 10 years they have been giving away awards for design excellence in womenswear, menswear and accessories as well as extraordinary accomplishments in journalism, creative vision and lifetime achievement.  This years winners were:

As usual, I digress.  The reason this has to do with Jay to the Crew is that they have teamed with all of the winning designers to give us little people a signature J. Crew collection.  You may have seen some random Prabal Gurung dresses online and thought what is this about?  Well, he clearly won an award and teamed with J. Crew to give us some affordable pieces to purchase online.

I digress, again.  The reason you have to shop today is because Eddie Borgo’s jewelry line was just released and it will not last long.  Reason it’s fabulous?  It’s super edgy and totally not J. Crew.  It’s mostly leather and studs.  Check out the line below and start shopping!
