Reply Sarah August 1, 2008 at 9:55 am 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! Reply megan August 1, 2008 at 10:04 am j.crew has really been right on the mark lately.like someone else said, they just get it. Reply Kyle August 1, 2008 at 10:05 am J.Crew can put together outfits like nobody’s business…and they are definately at their peak in the fall. Reply Gràcia August 1, 2008 at 10:07 am 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! Reply Tonya August 1, 2008 at 10:35 am Thanks and no thanks for sharing that! My wallet hurts already. Reply Jules August 1, 2008 at 10:48 am That’s so lovely, Nicole! You’re too talented for your own good. ;) Reply anh-minh August 1, 2008 at 11:56 am I would TOTALLY buy a print of that sketch. As well as the coat. Reply dangerdorge August 1, 2008 at 12:17 pm Seriously, J.Crew has been on their game the past few years. I love their colors and shapes! Reply Fall preview from J. Crew August 1, 2008 at 12:28 pm […] not quite ready for a heavy palette while it’s still 100 degrees outside. I think Nicole from Making It Lovely should join their fashion illustrator team, don’t […] Reply michelle August 1, 2008 at 12:33 pm 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. Reply michelle August 1, 2008 at 12:34 pm 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. Reply Brenda August 1, 2008 at 12:59 pm I love fashion illustrations too, and would totally buy your prints! Do it! :) Reply Pencils August 1, 2008 at 7:12 pm 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. Reply yvette August 1, 2008 at 7:58 pm 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. Reply Genevieve August 2, 2008 at 12:12 pm 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? Reply patricia August 2, 2008 at 11:04 pm Hey, when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping or illustrating! Fun lines, makes me think of Peter Max and feeling groovy. Reply amy purple August 3, 2008 at 9:19 am 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. :) Reply puglyfeet August 3, 2008 at 7:13 pm Wow. Your drawing of that outfit is spot on. Great outfit. Reply Leslie August 4, 2008 at 9:59 am Ditto!!!
