I love seeing behind the scenes photos, interviews and clips of how big, stylish brands filled with smart female employees actually work. This is why I'm loving the new blog on Kate Spade and the video/photo Italy series on J. Crew. Not only is it incredibly effective marketing (in the J. Crew videos, I'm not only watching them selecting fabrics for new J. Crew products, I'm also drooling over whatever Jenna Lyons is wearing and her enviable personal style. Talk about a brand ambassador. Maybe if I wear J. Crew I can live this life, too...) it's done with such style and professional quality. This is not an amateur operation.
A sidenote though, why doesn't The Weekly Spade or the J. Crew Tumblr have an RSS feed? If I can't add something to my Google Reader, it's dead to me.
