I will leave the New York Fashion Week reporting to the professionals, but I did want to share Kelly Bensimon in head to toe red from J. Crew over the weekend at the Luca Luca show.

The only time I would purposely ever wear that much red... SantaCon. Look, both Kelly and I had a touch of fur and animal print.
...College Flashback...In a rush to geology class, aka "rocks for jocks", I threw on my Sundance II Uggs over my burgundy velour Juicy suit. I was mortified when a friend said I looked like Santa.

It must be nice to pull off wearing anything... I sure can't.

Back to Fashion Week, J. Crew is presenting for the first time in New York. I found this quote in USA Today from lead stylist Jenna Lyons depressing:
"We had been labeled as a preppy retailer. And as much as preppy is wonderful, it can be a little bit exclusionary. We've been trying to make it a bit more modern."

Kelly's J. Crew look... yay or nay?


  1. I love wearing red, but I tend to stick to more subtle accessories..like nails or lips!!

  2. I've always had a thing for red pants, but I've never ever worn them. Unless they were sweatpants...

  3. They have done the whole labeling as preppy thing to themselves!!! Let's think back to the catalogs from the past ten years, I'm going to go with that they have all been reallly preppy!

  4. My love/hate relationship with J.Crew continues...I miss a lot of the old J.Crew stuff!

  5. I love J.Crew but I don't think I would ever do head to toe red. I love a good red dress or red accessories but head to toe red is a little much!

  6. Red is not really my favorite, but J.Crew is definitely one of my go to stores. I will have to go with nay. I think the top would be cute with another choice of pants.

    Thanks for entering my giveaway love! xoxo

  7. I love it! I wish I could pull it off without looking like a strawberry!


  8. You are adorable in your Santa outfit! Love that!! :)

  9. I think I bought those Red minnie pants she's wearing! They are on back order, so I'm just waiting for them to be delivered! And I bought a red JCrew dress for our Keeneland races! Hot color of the season!

  10. Thank god Kelly is leaving The Housewives. She is c-razy!
