Cherries Jubilee aka J.Crew October New Arrivals

I am back from my mini-vacation just in time to see all the new cherry print items J.Crew rolled out for October. We had a little sneak preview when the Flutter-Sleeve Top (review) was put out in stores at the end of August. Now it’s truly rolled out along with all the other items in the print, but with a black background and red cherries. I was at the store Wednesday and tried on every piece I could find. Those reviews are coming soon.

I liked the Tippi Sweater but since I haven’t had the opportunity to wear my Embellished Bee Tippi I probably won’t buy it. I love the ruffle bottom of the wrap dress but the top is a little low-cut. A short block heel is on the Ankle-Wrap Heels and you can choose a necklace or bracelet with cherries. Finishing up the accessories are a pretty little silk scarf or socks.

I sure do wish J.Crew allowed more than 100 items in a wishlist. Or at least allowed you to create separate categories under your account. Mine is completely full and I’ll have to start making more purchases if I want to add anything from the November and Holiday rollouts coming in the next few months.

Have you tried any of the cherry print items? What is your favorite?

    Hi AB! Can’t wait to see your pix and reviews! I thought I would like this print more than i do — it’s cute, for sure, but i don’t LOVE it, you know what I mean? I don’t like red and black combos in general, so I wish they’d used a darker navy instead. I do really like the Wrap dress with all the ruffles, but it IS very low cut! Wish it came in Petite. (A JCA pointed out that it had a flamenco dress to it and I can totally see that.) Still, I liked the cut of the dress in general. I prefer the Ivory/gray version better (though I have too many flutter sleeve blouses, can’t get another one.) No must-haves for me from this roll-out, which is fine with me, need to let my c/c recover from the summer!

      It’s always good to see a fun print from J.Crew. I know I’ll wear the top I bought but you are right about the black background. It seems a little harsh or something. Though red cherries on white or ivory would have been cliche’, right?
