edgy americana

being in business school has resulted to so many real-world case studies. this week, my management class analyzed the private equity firm, TPG, that controlled j.crew in the late 1990s when the brand was in trouble.... the case was boring and full of financial data. but inspired me to see the direction j.crew is currently heading towards.

the analysis: i love the fall 2010 lookbook. pretty much obsessed and cannot wait for it to hit stores! lots of slouchy layers and neutrals topped with the perfectly disheveled hair that screams: i just threw this on, but i know i look fabulous.

I always love the way j.crew styles their models, i feel like the brand is associated with being super preppy, but it never shows in their catalog and always makes me want to shop there.
