I want this entire outfit, but my sketch may have to suffice.

    I pretty much want everything in the fall preview! The outfit you sketched is adorable, and I can’t decicde which I like more…the coat or the shoes! Btw, your drawing is really good!

    I love your sketch and wouldn’t it be amazing if clothing companies did sketches to preview their new lines?

    EEK! Your sketch made me hop right over the j.crew website. I work sooo hard all year to curb my shopping habits, but one thing I can’t resist is j.crew fall collections. It makes me wish for actual seasons here in southern california!

    J.Crew can put together outfits like nobody’s business…and they are definately at their peak in the fall.

    I love the coat! I fell in love with an outfit I saw yesterday… the best thing is that the temptation is not so strong, since it’s 100% autumn clothes and this morning at 6:30AM it was 88F here. Summer dresses for now!

    Thanks and no thanks for sharing that! My wallet hurts already.

    That’s so lovely, Nicole! You’re too talented for your own good. ;)

    I would TOTALLY buy a print of that sketch. As well as the coat.

    Seriously, J.Crew has been on their game the past few years. I love their colors and shapes!

    Nicole you she-devil, how dare you send me over jcrew.com so that I will now pine for those gorgeous pumps with the pink bow.

    forgot to add… you should consider selling prints. i love fashion illustration and would love several chicas like the one you sketched above hanging on my wall.

  16. Brenda August 1, 2008 at 12:59 pm #

    I love fashion illustrations too, and would totally buy your prints! Do it! :)

    Oh, thanks. I’m eight months pregnant and have no idea when I’m going to lose the baby weight, and you’re taunting me with great fall clothes. Waaah! I guess it gives me motivation, though. ;) I love the orange jacket with the bracelet sleeves.

    beautiful drawing! if you like jcrew, you’ll like boden too – i just got their catalogue of fall stuff and i love it. not sure if they have a bricks and mortar store or if it’s cat only.

    I agree!! When I got the fall preview mag. in the mail, I wanted everything in it!! And while perusing their site ;) I discovered they also make stylish clothes for dogs too!! Its called CrewMutts, how cute aye?

    Hey, when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping or illustrating!
    Fun lines, makes me think of Peter Max and feeling groovy.

    I am such a fan of J Crew’s clothing. After I graduate in May (finally!) and have to get work clothes, this is definitely one of the first places I’m heading to.

    Your sketch is so pretty too. I wish I could draw. :)

    Wow. Your drawing of that outfit is spot on. Great outfit.

  23. Leslie August 4, 2008 at 9:59 am #

    Ditto!!! I thought I would die of gladness when I saw that coat. So stunning!

  24. Leslie August 4, 2008 at 10:00 am #

    And yes, your sketch is just as adorable.

    I have been loving the new fall collection since it appeared in my mailbox last week….I want it all. So classy, cute – colors are great…mm, love JCrew.

    J.Crew in the fall is so, so good. And the jacket with the bow, perfect!
