J. Crew New Arrivals: What I'm Loving!

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited to see the new arrivals on the J. Crew website this morning.  Here's what I'm loving:

I love the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton in Warm Jade:

J. Crew really does color well!  I'm looking forward to styling this beauty!

I'm also loving the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Basket-Weave Tweed in Marine Blue and Grass Green.  I really like how the skirt is styled in the following website image:


I'm also loving the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Waterfloral; however, I do not love the price!  Again, I love the website image featuring the newest color of the Blythe Silk Blouse:


Finally, I'm loving the Blythe Blouse in Silk in the Royal color seen here:

J. Crew New Arrivals

Hi Everyone!

I'm really looking forward to seeing the new arrivals on the J. Crew website tomorrow!  I stopped by my retail store today to take a peek at the new rollout.  My store only got 50 boxes, so it was a very small rollout.  We can expect a lot of pretty colors including the Matinee Trench in a Modern Red color!!!

The lovely Fabulous Florida Mommy posted "sneak peek" images of new J. Crew items from the Net-A-Porter site recently on her wonderful blog here .  One of the images Fabulous Florida Mommy  posted is the Pleated A-line Skirt in Ashbury Floral seen here (Note:  this image is courtesy of Fabulous Florida Mommy.blogspot.com):

This wonderful skirt is in the new catalog, so hopefully it will appear with the new arrivals on the website tomorrow.  Thanks for the heads up Fabulous Florida Mommy!!!

Finally, I saw the following skirt in my store today:

This skirt is beautiful IRL; I wish that J. Crew offered my skirt size in store.  I can't wait to try this beauty on!!!  This skirt is styled to perfection in the catalog.

Have you seen the new arrivals in store?  What items are you considering?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

Review: J. Crew Wynter Sweater in Sequin Stripe

Hi Everyone!

I decided to grab the J. Crew Wynter Sweater in Sequin Stripe recently.  I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to keep the black natural color because I have the pink one as well.  Here is a quick pic of me trying the sweater on:

I really like the look of this sweater; however, I hope that it's not too short/boxy on me.  See the Wynter Sweater in Sequin Stripe on the following lovely bloggers:  Rose of 1 More Shopping Blog here, Tara of Mix and Match Fashion here, AudreyBella of Life is Short...Buy the Shoes here, Skylette of Sequins and Stilettos here, Ema of My closet, my Baby and I here, and Shariyu of Viva La Beagle here.  I hope that I didn't miss anyone!!!

Thursday Thoughts: Mixing Colors

Hi Everyone!

I stopped by the J. Crew store today to check out the newest arrivals.  I LOVE the new bright colors of the Tippi sweater. 

On my way out of the store, I noticed a styling combination that I can't get out of my head.  However, I'm not sure what to think about the different colors in the outfit.  The outfit featured the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Harvest Tweed with the Blythe Blouse in Neon Azalea with an orange v-neck sweater over the Neon Azalea blouse.

Here are the pieces:
What do you think of this color combination?  I love the Neon Azalea Blythe Blouse, but it is bright, so I'd like to tone it down a bit.  What do you think of the orange sweater and the Neon Azalea blouse together?  Do tell!

Review: J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton

Hi Everyone!

I really like the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton from last Spring, so I was super excited to see that it is being offered in new colors this year!  I decided to grab the Casablanca Blue color during a recent 30% off promotion.  Here are two IRL pics of the skirt:

Excuse these crappy cell phone pictures.  I'm hoping that a brand new camera shows up on my doorstep soon!

I intend to style the skirt like it is styled in the website picture below:



My online personal shopper told me that this skirt will be offered in other great colors such as Warm Jade.

Review: J. Crew Polka-dot Pencil Skirt

Hi Everyone!

I was super excited when I saw the Polka-dot Pencil Skirt on the J. Crew website a week or two ago.  I decided to grab the skirt recently.  Here is the website picture:

And, here are a few IRL pictures of the skirt:


I really like this skirt.  I'm just hoping that the pattern doesn't add weight to my bottom half.  I definitely don't need any added weight!!

Review: Talbots Damita Patent Kitten Heel Pump

Hi Everyone!

Talbots currently has a 40 % off everything promo going on!  I LOVE the J. Crew Mona pumps, but an ambulance would have to take me to the hospital if I tried to walk in a heel that high.  So, I decided to try the Talbots Damita Patent Kitten Heel Pump:

I LOVE these shoes!  And, if you're like me and you need a lower heel, these shoes are a great alternative to the J. Crew Mona pumps.  I sized up by a 1/2 size to a 9 1/2; I'm glad that I did.  Here are a few IRL pics:

I give these shoes 2 thumbs up!

Review: J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Engineer Coat

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Engineer Coat yesterday.  I really like this coat.  Excuse the bathroom photos; the UPS delivery guy, who interestingly is my cousin by marriage, delivered this package too late for me to take photos by the front the door.

Here are a few IRL pics:

I'm not sure what I'm doing with my legs here, LOL!

And, here is a grainy quick pic of the front of the coat:

Finally, here is the website image:



I'll try to get better pictures later today.  What do you think of the J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Engineer Coat?  Do tell!

Review: J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Glen Plaid

Hi Everyone!

Recently, I received the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Glen Plaid.  I really like this skirt, specifically the bow details.  I'm trying to decide how to style this skirt, but here are a few IRL pics:

I'm holding my hand in front trying to emphasize the bow details.  Here is another picture that I hope captures the beauty of the plaid pattern:


Here is the website image:


I can't wear yellow, so I will have to find another color to make this skirt pop! 

See the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Glen Plaid on the following wonderful bloggers:  Rose of the lovely 1 More Shopping Blog, the lovely blog J. Crew Obsession, and AudreyBella of the lovely Life is Short... Buy the Shoes.  I hope that I haven't missed any other blogs that have featured this skirt.  I often feel like I'm missing a citation in my book/research when I'm linking other blogs.  I always want to give credit where it belongs!

Review: J. Crew Cafe Capri Pants

Hi Everyone!

I've been eyeing the Cafe Capri pants from J. Crew ever since I saw the Warm Jade color paired with the Wildcat Scoopneck Blouse on the website:


I also like this image of the same outfit paired with red shoes:



I have a hard time finding great fitting pants, so I don't wear them often.  I decided to try the Cafe Capri pant to see how they would fit.  I actually like them.  Here are a few IRL pics:


An online personal shopper told me that the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in double-serge cotton will be available in this Warm Jade color too!

Review: J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Car Coat in Buffalo Plaid

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Car Coat in Buffalo Plaid on Thursday.  I really like this coat!  I try hard to post about items that are still available on the J. Crew website; however, it appears that this coat is sold out now.  Given all of the recent promotions, as well as how cute the coat is, I'm not surprised.

Here are a few IRL pics:

And, finally, here is the website image.  I really like how the coat is paired with all black here:

J. Crew 25 % off Promo!

Hi Everyone!

Oh my, another J. Crew promo!  I decided to grab the Stadium-Cloth Engineer Coat when I was up early this morning.  I really like how this coat looks with bright colors like vibrant flame in the website picture below:

Also, I noticed this morning that the Polka-dot pencil skirt is available on the website.  Given my love for a cute pencil skirt, I had to grab it with this promo too:

I really like this website image too.  And, I think that the red color really makes the skirt pop!

J. Crew 25 % off/Free Shipping Promo

Hi Everyone!

Another day, another promo from J. Crew!  Today, I decided to grab 2 things I've been stalking.  First, I've been wanting a few basics, namely the Vintage Thermal Tee in Stripe in black:

This thermal is currently on promo for $29.50.  The extra 25% off with free shipping made this a great deal for me!

Also, I have been stalking the Snowbound Sweater in Heather Jungle, but it has been sold out in my size each time I considered pulling the trigger.  Today, there was one left in my size.  I'm crossing my fingers that it ships.  I love this website image featuring the sweater:

Looking Forward!

Hi Everyone!

As I was looking through the new arrivals on the J. Crew website yesterday, I saw the following super cute skirt paired with a polka dot knit top:



I contacted my online personal shopper today to ask her about this beautiful skirt!!  Apparently I'm not the only person interested in this lovely skirt; AppGal of the wonderful blog, Musings on the Mountain asked for information about it on the wonderful J. Crew Aficionada blog. My online ps doesn't have a definitive availability date, but she said that the skirt should be available later this month!  My ps also told me that this skirt is a collection piece; the price is $250.00.
