A Single Girl’s Guide: Your Best Friend’s Wedding

Quick update on my life that you don’t care about: I’m single.  That means I’ve been doing a LOT of therapeutic online window shopping… a favorite of the JCR girls.

A few of our PRO-TIPs for online window shopping post-break up: proceed with caution and hot tea, never approach the internet after 3 or more glasses of wine, and don’t actually BUY anything — trust us, you’re about to lose a lot of weight because you’re sad and eating reminds you of picnicking with your ex-lover in a meadow filled with daisies and your hopes and dreams, which absolutely never happened but IT COULD HAVE.

I haven’t been “real” shopping because I live in Brooklyn and my rent in one month is my clothes budget for an entire year.  Generally, I get by with my Christmas and Birthday presents, my roommates’ belongings, and $15 finds at Beacon’s Closet.  Bonus: when you shop at Beacon’s Closet you get to carry around a bag with a baby wearing hip glasses on the front.  It makes you look like you’re cool and from Brooklyn and I appreciate that because I’m not cool and I’m from Connecticut.  However,  I recently realized that a grand haul shopping trip is in store in the next month or so…

I had wondered back in January how I might continue on with my post as Resident Wedding Guest Blogger. I’d already posted about dresses twice; I’d covered my problem with shiny fabric; and now that I am in a romantic rut I’ve worried: Have I lost my Wedding Blogger Mojo?  But everything has a way of working itself out and one day, while online window shopping, I was reminded of all I have to look forward to… Which finally brings me to the Fashion portion of my post:


The JCR Girls Style Guide for Wedding Festivities!

The Bachelor Party

Bridal Parties aren’t always “traditional.”  For the girl who’s one of the guys, we suggest a laid back put together style:


We love the combination of classic pieces such as the nude/tan/peach wedges (J.Crew Lillian Patent Low Wedges) and a white blouse (MANGO Metal Fastening Blouse) paired with edgier pieces like a statement necklace (J.Crew Fan Fringe Necklace), and cut off/leather shorts (Rag & Bone Jean The Cut-Off Short.)  And while we’re all for breaking tradition and making things your own, we still think it’s bad behavior to wear white to weddings when you’re not the bride or not directed by her to do so! If you’re invited, sneak some white in at the Bachelor Party – you know you’ve been dying to show off your cute new spring top!

The Bachelorette

Girls, this is your night to go crazy!  While we don’t encourage behavior fit for a hollywood film, we think you should look like you belong in one.

There’s nothing wrong with getting noticed tonight, so go for it!  We love the combination of a fun, flirty dress (Ted Baker Penny Floral Embellished Red Dress) and attention-getting accessories.  The outfit above features OASIS Metallic T-bar Sandals and Modcloth’s Mint to Be Yours Bag.  What’s so great about these accessories is that they evoke a bygone era while remaining modern and fresh.  We love the idea of a modern pin-up cat eye with an outfit like this, check out  MAC Liquidlast Liner!


The Bridal Shower

Keep it light and classic for the Bridal Shower, with a few personalized touches.


Try a structured fit and flare dress like JCrew Loretta Dress in a summery shade paired with a flowy hat like JCrew Summer Straw Hat.  Add whimsical touches like Windsor Store’s Gold Love Signature Bracelet (similar here) , and Kate Spade New York All Wrapped Up Pearls Drop Earrings.  Then tie it all together with a staple piece from your closet, like white wedges (ZARA Block Sandal w/ Ankle Strap!)


The Rehearsal Dinner

For the Rehearsal Dinner, go for Ultra-Femme, Understated Elegance, in your clothes and in your demeanor: let the next 24 hours be about your family/friends without sacrificing fashion!

Peachy hues and lavender tones are perfect for a Rehearsal Dinner.   Find a dress that cinches in your waist and floats away from your hips like French Connection Berry Voile Fan Dress and pair it with a – dare we say it – COMFORTABLE low-rise heels (J.Crew Miri midheel suede pumps.)  Remember that you do NOT want sore blistered feet going into a day of standing on even MORE uncomfortable shoes! Remember to get creative – if you can’t find a necklace length you like with the neckline of your dress or shirt – check out the kid’s section like we did!  We found this JCrew Girls Ribbon-Tied Long Pearl Necklace, which would suit this neckline perfectly.  Finally, tie it all together with a peach-pink blush and lipstick like Nars Blush in Orgasm and Mac Creamsheen & Pearl Lipstick in Peach Blossom.

The Morning After

Ah, the bittersweet morning after.  You’ll probably find yourself partly glad the craziness is over and partly sad that something you have looked forward to has ended.  You will also probably be sore from dancing, tired, and possibly find yourself with a slight headache (21+ only!!!!)

Today, you will RELAX, sit by the pool, have a margarita, and think about how not married you are.

Ships Ahoy! J. Crew Nautical Necessities

Whether you are sailing the Atlantic, lounging by the pool, or catching a baseball game with friends, nautical attire is always appropriate. Anchors, stripes and ship wheels have long been a summertime staple when it comes to casual dressing. Learn to embrace the theme with the help of J.Crew’s talented team who expertly crafts a boat-friendly collection year after year.

This season, standout items are all about the anchor. From a charm bracelet, to a scoop-neck blouse or comfortable T-shirt dress, anchors are a coveted symbol that certainly makes a statement, in a modest way in comparison to other loud symbols.

J. Crew Review Nautical Attire Ahoy! Nothing screams nautical more than bold stripes, particularly stripes in the all-American, spirited colors of red, white and blue. Borrowing from the boys has never been so stylish, as the Saint James unisex tee is absolute striped perfection. Tailored linen and cotton shorts are, as J.Crew called them, the ultimate secret weapon for summer.

Crew Review Stipes, Nautical, St. James Tee The J.Crew catalog, coined as the style guide, is a fashion magazine that embraces what we all know and love: the never-ending possibilities of J.Crew ensembles. Who doesn’t want to look like they just hopped out of the catalog? To no surprise, June’s style guide featured a number of nautical looks,
