J Crew October Arrivals

I haven’t received the latest J Crew catalog in months so I was surprised to find the October catalog in my mailbox this week. The first image that I immediately wanted to buy and duplicate was the cover, similar to the one below with the Saint James Slouchy Tee and Campbell Blazer in Tweed.

So the Vail Parka came out at the Factory this week but J Crew also brought out more colors in the Chateau Parka for this season. I am loving that Heather Mustard color which reminds me of the Dark Ochre from seasons ago.

I want to find Silk tops over Poly and I think the Silk Blouse in Cobalt Leopard will fit nicely into my Fall wardrobe. It like that it is similar in color to the Midnight Floral print (Jumpsuit).

The other item I immediately loved from the Style Guide was the Patio Pant with Leather Tux Stripe in Bi-Stretch Wool. I stalked those all day on the site yesterday and then ended up ordering the Patio Pant in Bi-Stretch Wool in Blue Stone. I have no idea why I changed my mind. Probably because of the leather tux stripe and how expensive it would be to have them dry-cleaned since they have that leather on it.

Lastly, the Boy Shirt in Dawson Plaid is one I’m hoping to see IRL before buying. I think I like the colors but want to make sure. The colors on the model image are light while the stock image shows it more saturated. I want it lighter than the stock image.

Take 25% off your purchase on most items with code SHOPNOW, through Sunday, September 20. The Patio Pants are excluded which is a huge bummer for me. All the blazers are included in the promo except the Rhodes Blazer which I what I would be ordering. Of course third party like Saint James and Thomas Mason are excluded too.

What have you added to your Wishlist from this roll-out?

      Kate – There really are. It's the first time in a while that I dog-eared some pages. I have reviews coming too!

    The online colors are pretty true on the Dawson plaid shirt.

      cate – I was able to see it IRL yesterday. I wasn't a fan of it in person. And I couldn't think of anything I had that would layer with it so I passed on it. I'll have reviews starting tomorrow!

    I was randomly dropped from the catalog mailing list too and went to the store to pick one up earlier this week. Lo and behold, what catalog decided to show up in my mailbox yesterday!!?? So random.

    I thought I had enough striped shirts but that St. James one has a very intriguing/interesting color mix. I added several things to my wishlist but there is nothing I'm dying to have although I really like the Maddie pant in the mosaic jacquard print. I was hoping my store would have them but they didn't, so I keep going back and forth as to whether I should order it. The price is still too high with the discount for a cotton blend pant, but I can just see myself wearing them.
