my poor, sweet bank account has no idea what is about to happen.  as the day has finally come when i spend all of my extra income (ha, juuust kidding.  i don't have any of that) on EVERYTHING j.crew.  the american retailer has just opened its second canadian location in vancouver and this city couldn't be happier!


i was lucky enough to attend a private grand opening before the store opened to the public.  but the question was of course, what to wear?  i opted for preppy brights, trying to be as j.crew as possible.  despite last minute doubt about too much green, i think it turned out and i actually had two j.crew employees compliment my attire.  and that, my friends, is the ultimate compliment!


anyway, i am supposed to be "relaxing" on a "weekend vacation" right now, so i should probably go.  but, i will leave you with quite possibly my best blooper to date.  this was me realizing there was a hair stuck on the bottom of my iced coffee, while the wind blew my skirt everywhere and i was still, for some reason, posing...
