Anyway, I had the experience of Deja Vu a few weeks ago when the J. Crew factory rolled out its new arrivals for spring. I usually relish scrolling through the new arrivals since the Factory "re-issues" old styles from J. Crew's past. But this time around all of the patterns and styles looked very familiar. I realized this was because they were already residing in my closet from last year. The experience of all these items being "already seen" and possessed by me led to another feeling: relief. I was relieved because since there was nothing new and crave worthy being featured in said new arrivals, there would be nothing for me to covet.
One such repeated item from the J. Crew Factory, already owned by me, is this short sleeve stripe necklace sweater. I'm not sorry that I bought this last year as opposed to waiting for the Factory version because I get a lot of wear out of it. It goes with everything. In fact, it's like Deja Vu wearing it and seeing it over and over again!
