rendez vous-ing with j. crew & their head of womens design tom mora in SF!

As our late Indian summer decided to high tail it's crazy self out of San Francisco (it was amazing but I've been craving some REAL Fall Bay Area weather!), the rain (that's more like it!) ushered in J. Crew's Head of Womens Design Señorito Tom Mora into the newly revamped J. Crew store at the Westfield Center for a little private rendez-vous.

While I sipped up all the wine and gobbled up all the hors d'oeuvres - I'm not lying; there was a point where none of the ladies wanted to drink nor eat anymore and since I was 1 out of the 4 guys at the store & a college man at that, plus my mama taught me to never be a rude guest, the waiter just parked himself next to me - fellow fashioncritters oooh'ed, aahhh'ed, and bagged up the current stellar Holiday Collection.
Head of Womens Design/My FSBFL Tom Mora @ the SF event.
I was able to get some time with Tom and to stop myself from trying to successfully manage to sneakily highjack his ridiculously rad cobalt blue accented scarf (you all know how I'm a sucker for a good MANcessory!), I asked him what he thought was a Fall must have item for our lady friends. Surprisingly, it was not a dress, nor heal, nor it-bag, but rather an it-color that he referred to as Tomato Red! I've already professed my affinity for pops of bold colors during the grey season, so right then and there, I knew Tom was my FSBFL [Fashion Soul Bro For Life]!

Tom has beautifully embedded this Tomato Red within his current J. Crew womens collection and here's some of my favorite pieces:
Cashmere Tee Dress $228
Natasha Top $88
Hacking Jacket in Double Serge Wool $250
Excursion Quilted Vest $98
Teddy Dress $198
Café Capri in Wool $118
Edie Purse $238
And the gents aren't left out. Tomato Red is an equal opportunity Fall color!
Chambray Shirt $98
Heavyweight Flannel Shirt in Big Basin Plain $98
Cashmere V-Neck Sweater $198
Stanton Pant in Urban Slim Fit $75
Many thanks to Tom Mora and J. Crew SF for such a charmingly delightful event! Now hurry up and head over to J. Crew to snag up some blazing pieces that will waken up your hibernating senses during the upcoming Fall/Winter days. Get some, mothalovahs!
