I had such a wonderful evening at the J Crew Sloane Street store event on Wednesday – it’s safe to say it was a success (if only for the stripey top and sunglasses I managed to purchase!).

I have to say I have really amazing readers and it was so lovely shopping with everyone and talking all things fashion and style. I hope everyone enjoyed the evening.



My mum bought these gorgeous sandals!

The lovely team at Bobbi Brown did my makeup for the evening, and I’m wearing my most J Crew lippy – ‘Bright Poppy’. I went for a gingham shirt – the print of the season – I love it dressed up with a skirt but equally, I’d wear it on the beach with denim shorts and a bikini.
Chiara from Lamplighter London was on hand to draw calligraphy letters for guests to take away on the evening – she is uber talented (she even makes her own neon ink to get the perfect hue) and her book, Nib and Ink, is fab, it makes a great gift.

Here’s a little video my husband made via Lucky No 13:


A huge thank you to everyone who came along, it is SO much more fun shopping in a big group (with a nice discount!), let’s hope there are more to come…



  1. Me and J Crew have a long history. Of course that was when my mum would pay for my shopping. Now it's a toss-up between paying the water bill and a new pair of shoes! x

  2. Thanks for such a fab evening Alex, you are so right it was so much fun shopping 'en masse'! I managed to order one of those stripe tops in my size online, cant wait to get it. Cat and I loved catching up with you and Nicky and loads of other wonderful ladies and having a good old shop (still loving the navy blazer with stand up month it will be mine!) great evening, brilliant hosting, thank you xxxx

  3. Fran, lovely blog. I'm wondering which J Crew stripe top you got? I'm thinking of getting the stripe top with the frill sleeves, I'm a generous size UK 8, do you know which J Crew sizing this is? Also which sunglasses did you decide to get?

  4. I'm sorry Alexandra my mother in law is here and her name is Fran I was typing this and listening to her talking at the same time hence the typo.
