J.Crew had a roll-out of new arrivals this week and, overall, I was very under-whelmed by it. Other than the coats, which I don’t need, I didn’t add a lot to my wishlist. Collection had a few eye-catchers for me, like the Olivia Topcoat and the Down Parka. Who knew I would want pink faux-fur in my life? But let’s take a look at some of the items I did like.
I would pair the Oxford Skirt with the Tippi Sweater in Embroidered Stars. I really like that sweater. Of course, I wanted to get as many gold stars as possible in Elementary School so who wouldn’t want a gold star sweater? I am also happy to see the Vintage Crop Jean is back. I do hope it fits like the pairs from a few years ago. Also, I wish the Tunic Cable-Knit Sweater came in other colors. I would throw that over some of my shirtdresses. I do like the online styling of it with the curved hem of the Wool Double-Serge Mini Skirt.
Around this roll-out and the Holiday roll-out, I always look for warm socks. I have these from Anonymous Ism and a cute Santa pair of Chup socks. What do you think about the New Balance for J.Crew Performance? I liked the Striped Leggings and the Bitter Lemon color of the 711 Sneakers but that’s about it. I guess I just don’t think J.Crew when I need work-out gear, even though it is New Balance branded.
There’s a new promo for the weekend too. You can take 25% or 30% off with code SHOPMORE and includes sale items.
Are you shopping new arrivals or the SHOPMORE sale?
Hi AB, I agree, this roll-out had some cute items, but few total loves/must-haves for me. (I did buy the Star Tippi, in part b/c I haven’t bought anything from JC in about 3 weeks! Last thing i bought was a $12 ballet tee.) I do like that Silk Clip dot dress but, hello, not at that price! Plus it doesn’t come in Petite (tailoring costs). I don’t think I ever need to buy a pair of jeans in my life. Just so many. (I do like the Cargo Pants, with the zippers — didn’t catch the cabernet version last fall, so these would be nice.) Re) New Balance collaboration — exactly, I don’t think JC when I want work-out gear & that is the last thing I want to spend good money. TJ Maxx has so many good deals on that type of thing. Have a good week, hon!
