Don't buy it, Recreat it: JCrew

JCrew is one of my favorite catalogs to get in the mail.  Their looks are always fresh, inspiring, visually interesting and even exciting!  Their November catalog, where I got the picture above did not disappoint. 

My first thought when I see an outfit I like is "what a great look" which is quickly followed by "how can I replicate it"?  For this look I chose a skirt that I felt mirrored more the style rather than the actual fabric of the JCrew skirt. 
I was thinking that it might be fun to receive catalog looks from you guys that you might like to see replicated.  What do you guys think?.......sound like fun?
