Garments for Good with J. Crew + VCU Massey Cancer Center

jcrew and vcu massey cancer center charity event

This past week I got the chance to pop in J. Crew and see some of their new arrivals. While their aesthetic can be a little too preppy and sweet for my personal style and tastes, I love the classic cuts of their pieces when worn as separates or with some strategic styling.

I scoured the store which is full of super cute pieces and came out with four of my favorites:

  1. Jean jacket - This is the ONE item that I tell ALL my clients they need to have in their wardrobes. Light wash, dark wash, white, you name it, it's a closet staple. 
  2. Army green pants + white top - This color combo is A+ - it's great for summer/spring and can be easily transitioned into fall with, you guessed it, a jean jacket!
  3. Cute sunnies - I LOVE the fun + retro look of these colored frames and mirrored lenses. This would be the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe.
  4. Black ruffle top - You can't get more classic than black, but the ruffled top gives it a little bit of interest and good styling can make it work for anyone's personal style.


I am proud to partner with J. Crew to host an event that will support cancer research at VCU Massey Cancer Center. Together with Avery of Avery Frank Designs, we'll be enjoying refreshments and bubbly (yesss) while helping you put together looks from J. Crew's newest arrivals. Come see me, grab some bubbles, and get styled!
