J Crew Reds and a Juicy Pink

I completely missed out on the Bubble necklace originally but was lucky enough to find a gray necklace on the JCA Exchange. J Crew has brought this back in Black and Modern Red.

Description from J Crew: We brought it back: the defining J.Crew statement necklace (it’s an icon) in 18K gold electroplated brass with hand-set resin cabochons and beads. Lobster clasp closure. Import. Length: 24″ with a 3″ extender chain for adjustable length.

Here it is IRL. I’m not sure if it is worth the $150 price tag. A pair of shoes or a pencil skirt, definitely. A necklace, umm…not so much. But, the Modern Red color is a gorgeous red. A true red in my opinion. I’ve seen the black in-store as well and it is just as pretty.  I’m on the fence with this one.

Next up is the Cashmere Lined Leather Gloves, in Holiday Punch.
The chicest way to keep cold weather from getting out of hand, in the softest, most supple Italian napa leather (luxuriously lined with cashmere). 

As soon as I saw this color I had to see it IRL as well. I ordered a size Large, which is a perfect fit. This is such a juicy, vibrant color. It comes in Black, Light Walnut and Celestial Blue, which looks just as gorgeous as the Holiday Punch. Both colors look like they will liven up a nice camel or black winter coat. The leather is soft and supple and the lining is comfortable and cozy.
Lastly, I have the Cafe’ Capri in Wool in Maraschino Cherry. As soon as this color popped up online I ordered them. They were back-ordered until last week and arrived Tuesday. They come in Black, Yacht Blue, Navy, Baked Citron, Bright Dahlia, Camel and Port Wine. 
I already have these in the Camel and ordered my normal size of 8 in J Crew pants. It was very hard to capture the true color of these pants. I am wearing them with the Juliet heels in Poppy and the Silk Polka Dot Tee. The heels are a bolder red, like the Bubble Necklace. The last picture was the best I could get with my point-and-shoot and standing about 15 feet away, zoomed in and flash on.

What do you think of these reds and pink? Are you interested in the Bubble Necklace this time around?

    Love those pants on you.

    I have the black bubble from the first time around and I wear it a lot. I got it on sale and my cost per wear must be pennies by now. Maybe this will go on sale!

    Delicious colors. I ordered the gloves in the pink and the blue and they should arrive this week. Your IRL photo of the pink looks gorgeous, can't wait to try them, it is getting cold in Canada already so I may be wearing them the minute I get home.

    Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Love your reds and pinks, how fun!
    The gloves are on my list right now, I just love that holiday punch.
    Love the outfit you put together with the red pants, so pretty!

    I love the bubble necklace, but $150 is too rich for my blood. You know, H&M recently put out a piece just like it-in red, for I think $12.

    I love the red pants and polka dot top. You look so great in that cut!

    I have the bubble necklace in grey. Not sure I really need another color, although it's a great necklace. Love the red on the capris. Thanks for sharing pics.
