A Montage of Colors!!!


So this outfit is a NIGHTMARE for some of you...citron and dark mushroom together...even CW is wearing citron...you all must be truly appalled. :)

Just some COLORFUL memories for you all!!!
Just some COLORFUL memories for you all!!! by dinagideon on Polyvore.com

To celebrate the end of the poll on "yuckiest" colors that J. Crew has ever created, I wanted to create a polyvore to showcase some of the best colors that J. Crew has ever dreamed up...the images are mainly Fall 2007 (and probably the best season of J. Crew yet).

I am not going to do a poll until I have enough color choices to pick from...so if you have a FAVORITE J. Crew color, please leave the choice in the comments. (I love Burnished Yellow and Peacock, for instance.)

And don't worry, Citron lovers, I will include the "LEAST FAVORITE" choice of Citron in the poll on best colors...I happen to ADORE Citron...

I don't think dark mushroom will make an appearance on the favorite color list unless one of you REALLY REALLY wants it on the list!!!

Have a great night...if I am not too tired (first day of kindergarten summer school today), I will post on the Coccodrillo pencil skirt...

ahhhhh - I love the paris catalog images so much...

as for fave colors - welsh purple (from the paris season) and honey glaze! And I totally agree - bright peacock is another fave of mine just like Dina!

Favorite color: soft azalea

I enjoyed dark peony. Tried to like citron but it was oh so bright against my tan skin.

AppGal said...

my absolute favorite color so far was HONEY GLAZE!!! ahh...i'd love it if they brought that one back this fall!

bright peacock is also another fave (goes well with honey glaze...hehe)

HeidiG said...

paris...love love love.... Love your citron & dark mushroom - too funny!! Great outfit on you!!

Favorite is either dark charcoal (ducks head in shame)...ok, how about cerise?

kater said...

iheartgreen - I totally forgot about dark peony! that is another great one. As well as spearmint - I went crazy with that color this winter/spring.

bring back the color j crew!!!!

AppGal said...

ooh i love spearmint as well. i also loved...was it bright pacific? the really pretty bright blue? i also loved the chartreuse color they put out this year. :)

GingerSnap said...

I have that silk blue dress at the bottom right of your polyvore set! I love it (just had it altered) and cannot wait to sport it this fall! :)

Hexicon said...

My favorite J.Crew color is azalea, by far! I also like dark peacock and cantaloupe.

I also love the 07 peacock print--I have more items that I would care to admit--from head to to, hairband to ballet slippers! I don't have the Emma dress in peacock, though I've watched it on eBay

Hexicon said...

whoops, dark peacock was supposed to say dark peony

gigiofca said...

I vote for brilliant blue. So pretty.

cdp said...

I like citron too!! Have quite a few pieces in that color. My top favorite shade is PUTTY. I went crazy over that this past winter. Spearmint is a close second.

I love citron! My 2nd or 3rd fave jc color. dark mushroom is ok, depends on the application (cords- yes! silk dress-- not so much). :)

My favorite JC colors:

1. BURNISHED OLIVE! I have green eyes, so I wear lots of green. But this color has a lot of depth and really pulled me away from emeralds and grassy greens, and over to the realm of something a little more sophisticated.

2. Honey Glaze/Citron. a few years ago, yellow became very prominent in my wardrobe. Honey glaze is great year round, and citron is more of a spring/summer color for me... but sometimes on dreary winter days I will add a splash of citron via a tank under a sweater. Oh, and my bright saffron lady day!

3. Royal purple/regal blue: these shades are very rich and also bring out the green in my eyes. Looks good with my fair complexion (but I think they are universally flattering).

4. chocolate, acorn + heather graphite: my favorite jcrew neutrals. Because I love the aforementioned colors so much, I often balance them with jc's browns and greys. Because I am so fair, I find black to be a little harsh, so I only have a few black pieces in my wardrobe.

Julia said...

Spearmint!! And azalea, so pretty! I'm hoping for lots of deep purple this fall though...fingers crossed!

Elnobe said...

Hi Dina,
I love the royal purple, and the poppy.
OTT - I noted you are wearing the pearl cluster necklace in a previous post. I am undecided whether to buy it or not. It looks beautiful on ly, but would you find it too big for someone 5'2" like me?

Em said...

Dina, I thought of you today when my Lexington jacket arrived from another JCA from last week's exchange. It is not a nice soft yellow like I imagined... instead it is definitely CITRON! I am going to try really hard to make it work but I have no clue what to pair it with.

I love Dark Peony, too. Honey Glaze, Spearmint, Regal Purple, are all colors that appear frequently in my wardrobe. I also like Fresh Guava. Spiced Mustard was awesome too, from 08.

A Bigger Closet said...

Too many favorite colors to name each one but standouts include pale and vivid pinks, bright peacock, plum and honey glaze.

I actually ordered the oragami tank in mushroom after seeing it in Patina's outfit. I'm thinking it's a neutral that should work with some brights to 'pretty' it up. :)

luvallthingsjcrew said...

WEll--my color choices will be different from yours I think--but I loved MISTY LAVENDER and SALMON--but top favorite is TEA ROSE!

dinagideon said...

Hi all! I am going to put up the fave color poll now and because all of you love so many colors, I will totally allow for multiple answers!

Elnobe: Get the cluster necklace. I am fairly "petite" on top and this necklace does not overwhelm me. I have worn it with so many outfits...it is such a beautiful piece. I think it is worth the money, imo, but I probably think that because I wear it so much! Hope this helps!

Elnobe said...

thanks Dina!

JaneK said...

I am so in love with the Peacock print!
I only managed to get the silk sash, and I have paired that as a belt with jeans and my pony brown velvet jacket.
I would practically kill for the silk tote in that print.
I know I had this exchange with Hexicon when I first started following JCA about a year ago!
She has nearly everything in that print. So envious!
