A FUNNY STORY WITH ILLUSTRATORJulie HoutsHow our friend and former J.Crew designer (who you might know better as @jooleeloren) is finding comedic relief, and sharing her own sense of humor.
How she’s wearing our new shirt collection: with extra stripes and her scruffy sidekick, Rue.
5 things that are making her 😂 right now 1. “My boyfriend Gabe, always. He’s a comedy writer, so thankfully, he’s good at his job!”2. “These comedians on Instagram: @bejohnce, @kateberlant, @coleescola, @spaceprincejulio, @party_harderson, @fayedunaway, @gcharlesrogers, @gkuhlenschmidt, @ayoedebiri and @catccohen. It’s a really long list, but unfortunately, uneditable. All essential.”3. “I hate to be this person, but my dog Rue really kills me. Basic dog behavior has me crying with laughter and demanding, ‘WATCH HER PAW!!! THE WAY SHE LIFTS IT IS SO FUNNY.’”4. “The show Stath Lets Flats on HBO Max.”5. Taking preening selfie videos with an aggressive plastic surgery filter and pairing them with Celtic fusion music. I send them to my friends and, as far as I know, nobody thinks they’re remotely funny, but no one has told me to stop, so…”
