Fashion : Liu Wen for J. Crew Fall 2013

August 19, 2013

I happen to love summer so I don't want to to think about the fact that fall is just around the corner but the J. Crew Fall 2013 look book starring Liu Wen has me excited about fall fashion. I'm a big fan of the brand's trademark modern classic aesthetic which features vivid colors, bold prints and fun textures and embellishments. I already purchased the mixed stitch Tippi sweater in the 4th photo and it will make it's way into my sweater lineup when the weather chills. It looks like some of these photos were taken in NYC's Chinatown. I distinctly recognize Pell Street in the 1st photo with the hair salon I go to in the background and Doyers Street in the last photo. Do you like J. Crew? Are you excited about fall fashions?

On a personal note, I'm going to see an ankle specialist this afternoon. The ankle injury I sustained earlier this year just keeps getting re-aggravated and hasn't healed properly. It's probably weakened since I've sprained it a few times in the past. I went for an MRI last week which revealed that all the ligaments are sprained and I also have a tendon tear. I've already been told I'm going to have to wear a protective brace and go for physical therapy but I hope the prognosis won't be much worse than that. I'm just glad I'm not dealing with the vertigo anymore. By comparison this isn't as bad at all.

  5. While I love summer, spring and fall are my favorite seasons, and I couldn't be more excited at the prospect of the heat waves disappearing into the wild :) I won't miss those!
    And about your injuries, I'm so so sorry to hear that your ankle is still not ok and that it refuses to heal completely! Isn't there anything they could do or put on it to prevent it from misbehaving? I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for you, sweetie!

    Sending you lots of love

  11. On one hand, I'm glad to see models of other ethnicities fronting campaigns, but on the other hand, I wish that Jcrew could have been more creative and not place an Chinese model in Chinatown...I'm sorry to hear about your ankle, but whatever the prognosis, follow your doctor's instructions to the T! I have a surgery wound that kept getting aggravated bc I was lazy about follow up treatment. Big mistake!

    Argh! I hope your ankle condition doesn't end up severe! I can empathize because my mom also suffers from vertigo and foot conditions, so I really do hope your condition does get better! Don't over-exert yourself!

  21. I've loved JCrew since I was in university, which really was a looong time ago! And Liu Wen is very attractive -- I'm glad Chinese models are getting increasing attention and popularity. But o dear.. the ankle sounds painful. Keep off it as much as you can! (I know, it's like saying use your thumb as little as possible). Never mind, time heals -- you're in my prayers dear friend :)

  22. I love Liu Wen and J. Crew! The extreme bokeh effect here is awesome as well.
    You poor thing - rest up and i hope the ankle heals properly this time!

  24. Oh my goodness, this model is gorgeous. I've never heard of her before, wow... what a spectacular shoot for j.crew!! Thanks for sharing these pics. I'm so sorry about your ankle! It's true though... it just takes one bad sprain to weaken the joint, and then you're susceptible to more injuries in the future :( I hope it heals well and the therapies will help. Take it easy on that ankle! Will be thinking of you

  28. I am really excited for fall and also because, up to now, August has had the most amazing weather. I have mixed feelings about J Crew but when their clothes are on sale I am usually okay with them, I got a really cute shirt this summer.

    I hope you get good news about your ankle, I'll be thinking of you! I hope you get good news at your appointment. I'm finally getting allergy tested, it's probably long overdue. :)
