J. Crew New Arrivals: Peyton Popover in Stripe Crepe De Chine

Hi Everyone!

I stopped by the J. Crew retail store today to take a peek at the new arrivals.  I love all of the springy vibrant colors!  A couple of things caught my eye.  I grabbed the Peyton Popover in Stripe Crepe De Chine in Green/Navy pictured below:

I really like this shirt; it's paired with purple in the new catalog--the look is gorgeous!

There were other great new arrivals that I will discuss in another post.  I will note that I am super disappointed that one of the No. 2 Pencil Skirts I was really looking forward to grabbing, the Gardenshade Floral in Admiral Blue, does not come in my size.  I cannot stress how irritating it is that J. Crew does not offer size 14 skirts in retail stores, and that the No. 2 Pencil Skirt does not come in size 14 in all patterns.  Sorry for the vent.

What do you think of the Peyton Popover in Stripe Crepe De Chine in Green/Navy?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the navy/green combo -- so pretty!! I can't believe the sizing issue -- that is beyond irritating and you should send an email straight to DL asap. Ridiculous. I didn't get to my store today, but will get there on Wednesday and hopefully will get to see some pretties. :)

  2. I love the stripes! Such a cute combination of colors! I haven't seen the new catalog yet and am wondering what other colors these come in.

  3. shopwithm: I love this navy/green combo too! I squealed when I saw this shirt in the store. About the sizing issue: I've contacted Mickey and his assistant, I've left feedback on the Bizrate surveys when I purchase online, and I've asked my retail and online personal shoppers to convey my frustration. It's odd, things seem to improve, then they release a retail only version of a skirt that stops at a size 12. I really don't get it. Size 14 skirts sell out so fast that it's clear there is a demand.

    I can't wait to see your new arrivals wishlist and to hear your thoughts about the new rollout!

    Small Town Gal: I agree, I love this combination of colors!! The catalog shows a snippet of a black/creamish version of this shirt. I would scan the image, but it doesn't show the full shirt at all.

    Thanks for being here ladies!

  4. I am so happy to see all these great, preppy, color combinations! I am definitely ready for Spring! Can't wait to get to the store and check out the new arrivals. Patiently waiting for the new catalog...... :)

    As for the sizing issue - I agree. It's completely ridiculous, and I'm sorry that you have to deal with this frustration.

  5. ifky12: Like you, I am so happy to see all of these great colors!! The new arrivals are really gorgeous!

    And, thanks a bunch for your support about the sizing issues; I'm extremely grateful!

    Thanks SO much for being here!
