More J Crew Fall 2010 Pics

Sadly, I was unable to make it to my store’s Luxe event due to work, work, work. I was able to head over on Saturday afternoon to check out the new arrivals from this week and take some pics.

All-Spice Tee – Size S, #31249, Color IVO, $34.50 (not online)
I’ve started trying the size smalls in J Crew tees instead of the Mediums. I’ve found each material type give me a different fit. I think this is the Ringspun and it’s a little tight. The slub cotton tee below it a looser fit in the same size.

Eiffel Tower Tee – Size S, #30847, Color PEA, $36.50 (not online)
I believe this is a slub cotton. I saw the Eiffel tower on it out of the corner of my eye and knew immediately I was buying this.
See it on Ema.

Marled Boyfriend V-Neck Tee – Size S, Color-Heather Pewter, $72
The small was a little tight in the arms for me but fit loose in the chest and waist so I don’t think I’d take a Medium. It was very comfortable but overall, not for me.

Ikat Bustier Dress – Size 8
I tried this on for fun. The size 8 was too big in the bust but fit well in the waistband. The size 6 would have been too tight in the waistband. It’s a very pretty dress and has pockets and an exposed back zipper. My SA suggested putting the shirt underneath since I really don’t do strapless. It doesn’t look too bad.
See it on DrDrama – she looks hawt!

Drea Dress – Size S
I’m calling this the Drea Tunic, meant to be worn OVER skinny pants, like the Minnies. Cinching it a little tighter at the waist and raising it was not a pretty picture, so you won’t see it. 🙂

Sweaters & Outerwear
Marled Shawl-Collar Cardigan – Size S, $128
This is a really nice cardigan and it has two exposed zippers at the pockets. I just can’t justify buying it when I may only wear it two or three times. It also comes in Marled Saddle, which looks like a tan color.

Arrow Sweater-Jacket – Size M, $138, Color HEL-Heather Elm
I randomly picked this because I thought it looked cute. Not for me but cute none-the-less. I would have to cuff the sleeves as they were took long but a bit too boxy for me. It also comes in Black, Heather Caramel, Heather Carbon and Heather Grey.

Utility Jacket with Removable Faux Fur Collar – Size 8, Color SGR, $378 (not online)
This has an inner tie to cinch the waist and the collar is removable. The size 8 fit big through the body but well in the shoulders for me. The size 6 might have been a little tight in the shoulders.

Donegal Tweed School-boy Blazer – Size 6, Color ALU-Aluminum, also comes in Moss, $198
The fit of the 6 was great for me through the arms and shoulders but could be a little more fitted through the waist. I have too many blazers I rarely get to wear but would certainly love this one!

Sequined Jersey Bloomer – Size 6, $98
Tried on with Buffalo Check Boy Shirt – Size 6, $69.50, Color RDU-Rose Dust

Crinkled Silk Tempest Skirt – Size 8, $138, Color-Rust
This was sitting at my waist and was a little tight. No elastic waistband (finally!) to help out. Too short for me and a Size 10 would have added bulk/width, not length. There is something interesting about the print and color that I like. (2nd pic below is with flash.)

Sequin Pencil Skirt – Size 6, $138, Color-BSH, Brown Sheen
worn with Bayberry Flouncett Blouse – Size 6, $98, Color-DPL, Dark Plum
I like the pencil skirt but the sequins get stuck together so you have to CARFULLY separate them. The color is gorgeous. I couldn’t get a decent shot with flash, though. The blouse is pretty and goes well with the skirt (and another below) but makes the outfit a little too stuffy for me. I think the skirt with the Denim Perfect Shirt and the blouse, un-tucked, with the Minnies or rolled up jeans would be better.

Wool Flannel Fallyn Skirt – Size 6, $98, Color DRO, Dusty Rose
This skirt is very lightweight which surprised me. This size was a teensy bit tight for me but the length was perfect (21″). If I bought this I’d wear Spanx under or size up to an 8. (2nd pic is with flash.)

Felted Wool Mini – Size 6, $88, Color DCY, Dark Cypress
This is a very pretty green and would love if there were a little more length in the skirt. I think even with the shape and cut it would still look great a little longer in length. (2nd pic is with flash.)

Fountain Cami – Size 6, $98, Color MST, Metallic Stone
Meh…I’m not so into this. It’s a pretty top but I don’t care for how the ruffles are placed and it’s boxy. I think there was a side zip.

Khloe Jacquard Cami – Size 6, $88, Color BST, Blush Stone
This is very pretty but I would like to see the Cobblestone color IRL. Again a little boxy but would look great under a blazer.

Silk and Sequin Scoopneck Tee – Size S, $148, Color OMO, Olive Moss
This runs big (I sized down to a Small) but this is a pretty color.

Faded Paisley Flouncette Blouse – Size 6, $98, Color WAS, White Ash

Gingham Perfect Shirt – Size 6, $78, Color SHY, #29862
I wanted this shirt but I have the larger gingham shirt in the same purple from the summer.
See it on AppGal.

Vintage Bateau Top – Size S, $42.50, Color NAVy
I like the fit of the small much better than the medium (below in red-orange). I bought this and when I looked in my closet I realized I had the Perfect Fit Stripe Boatneck in Navy/White. So I’ll return and get the Red-Orange.

Vintage Bateau Top – Size M, $42.50, Color ROR, Red-Orange

Finally. I’ve been working on this post since Saturday!

    Thanks for all the photos! I do like the utility jacket with the faux fur, the flouncette blouse, though I know they were not in my store. I would not pay that price for the jacket and the boyfriend tee for $70+, OH MY, that is expensive!

    Good job for trying on the sequin bloomers!

    thnx for the pics! I am not loving the fall lineup so far, save for the accessories. You saved me a trip to the B&M, lol : )

    Thanks for sharing your pictures! I also tried on the Bayberry blouse and the Marled cardi and lovvedd them, but will wait for a sale price because they aren't the most practical of items. That sequin pencil skirt is gorgeous!

    You are sweet. I love the utility jacket the best! I have a couple of posts coming up about the newest rollouts at my local store.

    Thank you for the extensive review!

  6. August 24, 2010 / 11:44 pm

    Great reviews! I like the eiffel tower tee, the jacket with the furry collar, and the sequin pencil skirt!

    Thanks for all the photos. I had the same experience with the Drea *tunic*, the low drawstring was problematic. They have been doing a lot of dresses with the drawstring placed like that and it doesn't look great wherever you place it!
    The sequin skirt looks great on you, too bad it's so delicate.

    I missed out Luxe event too. Thanks for sharing all these pics with us the tees are great and I love that sequin pencil skirt (although I don't know when I'd actually wear it)

    Thanks for sharing! I think the saddest thing about most of these clothes is how they allow them to be placed on the selling floor SO wrinkled! I feel like customers will leave pieces behind as they have no idea what it truly looks like! J Crew really needs to set a precedent with their SA's to steam would go a LONG way in helping to sell some clothes.
    I tried that Drea is really cute but truly a scandalous length!
    I actually do not care for any of these pieces and my cart/list is rapidly dwindling as I see things first-hand. Seems I'm only liking essentially some season repeats in a new fabulous color. J Crew is so smart to offer those basics season after season but in superb colors..that is no doubt a strong-suit and something that draws so many people back in…gorgeous color choices.

    Thanks for the reviews! I really like the flannel skirt. I would wear it year round (well, maybe not in 90 degree weather) since it's lightweight. I tried the sequin skirt and thought it cute but too delicate for my purposes.

    Thanks everyone for your comments.

    Julie – I emailed you!

    Thank you for the pics. I went in to see the all spice tee. I was a little disappointed because it looked ivory in the pic and I even thought IVO meant ivory but its actually a rose/salmon color. I think I will still get it.
