J.Crew Says ‘J.Crew Mercantile’ is Just a Name They Own

'J.Crew Mercantile' might be nothing more than a name after all.

On May 2, people "familiar with the situation" told the Wall Street Journal that J.Crew owns the name J.Crew Mercantile and is developing a more budget-friendly line. According to the people, the new line will feature merchandise and prices closer to what shoppers would find at J.Crew's outlet stores, J.Crew Factory.

However, on May 7, J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler told WWD that the company bought the license to the name 'Mercantile' simply because he liked the name.

"Mercantile is a name we own. There's not much beyond that," said Drexler. "It's a name that was available and we liked. The way we run the company, we are always thinking creatively, innovating , and managing our assets. We have secured names and trademarks with either loose ideas or intentions, or with our imaginations. Sometimes things come of it, or they don't."

So will a lower-priced line called J.Crew Mercantile actually happen? We'll have to wait and see.

A Morning Spent in Cambria

Spring is a beautiful season. Especially when you're on the central coast of California.

A few weekends ago I spent a beautiful Saturday in Cambria, a little seaside village located on the central coast.

If you're looking for a lovely little breakfast or brunch spot in Cambria, Calif., stop by Redwood Cafe. It's very home-y and delicious. Whatever you do, get their hash browns.

By the way, ranunculus are in season! I picked up these beautiful pink flowers from Trader Joe's.


I paired a light cropped knit sweater with jeans for a simple spring look that was perfect for the breezy, sunny morning spent in Cambria.

Not sure how to wear a crop top without showing off too much skin? Yes, it's possible! Pair crop tops with high waisted pants or a high waisted skirt for a nice look that only shows off a sliver of skin. For more ideas, check out Lauren Conrad's tips on how to wear crop tops the right way.
