My dear friend Maxine lives in America and always talks about how great the brand J Crew is. The company started in 1983 but 2012 is most certainly the year for them as they have expanded worldwide. Most of their expansion is credit to Jenna Lyons, the creative director who is also a style queen. J Crew has a slightly quirky take on staples, and uses pretty sequin details with lace. A winner of a combination. 

I read an excerpt about how her boss Mickey Drexler installed an in-office announcement system so he could be contactable with them at all times and it made me want to work for the company. Sounds brilliant...I like when people make fast, gut instinct decisions. 

"He even checks in from holiday — he's like: 'Hey, I'm in St.-Tropez; it's gorgeous here! Anyway, I'm having lunch at Club 55 and you should see all these people wearing white! We should do more white; it's Summer, do we have enough white?' It's hilarious — I love it."
