Fall 2008, Ladies. That was the moment I lost all self-control and went full-speed ahead with a 99.99% J.Crew filled closet. I dabbled before that, peeps. I started to get the itch that summer and fell for a very cute skirt/top/cardigan look. But Fall 2008 is what got me.
Hook. Line. Sinker. Put a fork in me.
This was the release that included the infamous bug pin, the over-the-knee socks, spectator open toe heels, the super popular rose tee that we are still seeing versions of, the silver shot metallic tweed dress and skirt...
The rose print abstract poplin dress, the double-serge pencil skirt that I still love to this day... On and on, folks. I could wax poetic forever on this one season. Which leads me to two conclusions to ponder:
1- Do you think that first season you really went gaga for the Crew was their best season / release ever? I mean, are we biased to believe that was *the one*?
2- Did you ever feel the crazy need to covet the entire collection? Do you scour eBay looking for pieces from your favorite season? Do you literally die a thousand deaths when a pop-back hits Final Sale?
I know I'm not the only girl who does this crazy $h*t. If you are also similarly suffering, tell me:
What was the season / release you fell in love with and knew there was no turning back?
