“Drunk J.Crew” Is Your New Favorite Tumblr

Some genius with a Tumblr account has astutely observed that all the models in the J.Crew catalogue look mildly drunk off their asses. Drunk J. Crew puts words in the mouths of those tipsy ladies, and the end result is perfect. It’s hard not to wonder why it took us all so many years of shopping…

This cardigan combines the best thing about fall fashion (slouchy cardigans!) with the best thing about summer fashion (bright colors!), which makes it the perfect transition piece to bridge the seasons.
