In a world where online shopping has become the preferred method, it's good to know which retaliers offer the best experience. In a survey published yesterday, J. Crew has been named the number one online retailer out there. The survey, conducted by StellaService, credits the high rating to a speedy delivery time and outstanding customer service.
Since just last month, J. Crew has sped up their average delivery time by two days. Their customer support-- especially phone support--has been exceptional. The Huffington Post reports that CEO, Mickey Drexler, personally called an upset customer to resolve the customer's issue. How's that for service?!
Brought to life in 2009, the High Line, New York's mile-long park-in-the-sky which runs along the city's West Side, has been known to provide inspiration and respite to tourists, locals, and creative-types alike. Diane von Furstenberg not only helped fund the park's construction, but has sung it's praises in a special-edition collection in 2012, as well as a commerative map highlighting the designer's favorite places earlier this year. Sculptor Carol Bove, commissioned by the city, created seven original works for display in the park's still incomplete section 3, and famed architect Zaha Hadid, who at one point was in the running to design the park itself, has chosen the landmark as the site for her very first high-rise condomium building in New York.

The Girly Girl
This year for the annual sponsorship of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, J.Crew has partnered up with inventive Pamela Love to come out with some new pieces for their collection.
"The collection was inspired by what my friends and I wear almost on a daily basis," Love explains."I'm a big fan of mixing bold statement pieces with more subdued vintage classics, and I think that blend is pretty well reflected in the collection."
This limited collection is a three piece line that includes denim elements which is a staple of J.Crew's style. All of the pieces are available online at J.crew.com and at select J.crew stores.

Here are a few great summery essentials we love that include trends of the season from floral prints, to white, bright, and color blocking. It’s time to start packin’!
Clutch or Bag- That is the question!
Whether it is an all weekend event, or a couple hours for the day, make your choice of handbag accordingly. We love these summery styles as the blue and white stripe clutch by Rag & Bone shows a little nautical spirit, and Club Monaco’s Goldie Moroccan Bag has that beachy feel to it with the wicker weave and the gold-dipped bottom.
