Killing some time before the Cynthia Rowley event on Wednesday night, I took a window-shopping stroll down Newbury St. The window at Jack Wills caught my eye — the clothes were cute, but the styling got me inside. I had one of those “how did I not know about this store?” moments as soon as I entered; it was preppy paradise. On make-up packaging, umbrellas, jewelry, bathing suits — their signature navy and pink stripe was everywhere. Including on the walls behind a stellar art gallery going up the three-story staircase in the center of the store. Let’s just say – I kind of want to move in.
After making a pink and navy striped purchase I snagged their catalog and poured over it at home. Their home goods also have that signature ivy-leaguer-look — it makes me wish I had a dorm room to decorate again!
