J.Crew's Jenna Lyons on Oprah

Dream Life: J. Crew's Jenna Lyons on Oprah

Check out this cool piece about J.Crew's Jenna Lyons from OnSugar blog Shut Up, I Love That Shirt on You.

When you're frolicking through your early 20s, bouncing from unpaid internship to low-paying job to under-the-table nanny gig, just sort of trying to make your professional life start — it can be frustrating. Confusing. Enlightening. Exciting.

Myself, I've done marketing, editorial, social media, retail . . . a serious variety of part time jobs and internships. I've always felt my path leaning towards fashion, but which particular aspect of the industry has been a bit unclear.

Then came Jenna Lyons, the creative director of J.Crew. She spearheaded J.Crew's brand makeover that took them from a dated, preppy classic to a fresh outpost of stylish sophistication and casual cool. She's an icon for girls everywhere as a woman in the fashion industry who's as successful and smart as she is stylish.

Read the rest.

The other day I was browsing the latest J.Crew catalog, and as I took in the gorgeous images and crave-worthy ensembles I realized — I could so do that. Forever, for a living.

Further investigation on the J.Crew website as well as viewing this piece from Oprah (via the Huffington Post) has only further confirmed that my current life goal is to be the next Jenna Lyons.

Behold her life, her apartment, her kid, her closet.

(and note her striped shirt!)
