I had a friend in junior high that obsessed over J. Crew and because I looked up to her, I did too. It is a fabulous store, with fabulous clothes no doubt, but the prep look never really looked good on me. Actually, I never really knew if what I was picking was even preppy enough.
It's been a few years since then, but here is my stab at again. It is definitely making a comeback I'd say and here's how I'd do it, if I were to wear it.
