Aislinn Gavin graduated from Fordham University in 2011 with a degree in International and Multicultural Studies. Her hobbies include spending money she doesn’t have, singing at inappropriate times, and being sassy. She once ate a chocolate covered cricket and, at the age of 12, was bitten by a mouse. Follow her on twitter @aislinnagra and on Pinterest. Props if you can figure out how to pronounce her name.
My name is AJ! I am a 22-year-old fashion fanatic from the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri. I am currently attending the University of Missouri—St. Louis, where I am pursuing a degree in public relations, and work part-time at the Crew as a Very Personal Stylist.
My style can be defined as classic with a kick of color. I love anything chevron or stripes. I feel naked without a third piece, and you can always find me in my toffee Lila wedges. I also completely agree with Jenna when she says, “it only takes one colorful item to make a grey day beautiful–or a bland outfit sunny.” Fashion is a way to express yourself, embrace it!
My other passions include photography, baking, and rooting on my St. Louis Cardinals. I Instagram entirely too many photos of my dogs, and I love a good adjective. I also love road trips, live music, and Essie’s “Tart Deco. Unlike most of the lovely ladies I write with, I am new to the blogsphere (that’s a thing, right?!) but I am very excited to get started!

Hi, I’m Lauren and I’m fresh out of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and currently living in Fort Myers, FL. My style could be basically described as preppy chic, and I love all things J.Crew, Lilly Pulitzer, and Kate Spade! My go to outfit is always skinny jeans, a comfy tee and flats, with fun jewelry (ahem bubble necklace!). I love to run, write, travel, read, and getting away to the beach.
Anni is a twenty-something marketing student at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management. She spends her free time exploring Minneapolis coffee shops, perfecting her yoga headstand and catching up with her three best friends, her sisters.
After purchasing her first Jackie while most middle schoolers were sporting hoodies, Anni quickly became a J. Crew addict. She sets her alarm a bit early on Fridays to browse the J. Crew Factory site before the rest of the time zone and can persuade herself into buying just about anything from the store. Dressing as a business student and an intern, she is nearly 90% Crew at all times. She credits her mom for learning to dress classy and chic
Her dream job is to get involved in a business where style is appreciated and sequins are always welcomed, Anni also hopes to combine her business studies with her passion for social and digital media. Anni believes in living every day like its your birthday, which includes dressing the part and topping just about everything with sprinkles. She keeps a diary of her life at www.xodiaries.com and is excited to be part of the Crew over here at JCR.
Diane is a senior at West Chester University, majoring in liberal studies with minors in nutrition and psychology. When she’s not running around campus, she is an active member in the Junior League of Philadelphia and a contributor to her school’s newspaper. After spending the summer in NYC working two public relations internships, she’s learned the value of a good ballet flat and the versatility of the Jackie. Diane hopes to work for a magazine post-graduation (this December!), but will be dreading the day she can no longer use her student discount at J.Crew. Diane also blogs at www.eastcoaststyle.wordpress.com
My name is Julia Wang and I’m a rising junior at Emory University double majoring in economics and chemistry. Despite my heavy academic load at school, I manage to indulge my interests in fashion by following a multitude of style blogs and perusing online retail sites (RIP my bank account). Outside of studying and obsessing about J.Crew, I’m a tour guide, am in a sorority, and like to run. I also just started a blog, Tailored Feast, and have a twitter under the same name.
As for my style, I like my outfits clean and classic with a few statement pieces to keep it fresh and current. Originally from Connecticut, I adore preppy pieces and timeless looks. I’m partial to neutrals—you’ve probably never met a person more drawn to every shade of taupe, beige, and eggshell. I just can’t get enough. Then again I enjoy neon and bold, bright colors too. My other loves include chambray button downs, rose gold, mint, and blazers.
Additionally, I’m obsessed with Rafael Nadal (we can’t be friends if you’re a Federer fan), Nike running shorts, Zara, Beyoncé, LORAC Cosmetics, Timeflies, and Blair Eadie’s style.
