J. Crew New Arrivals: A Few Quick Pictures

Hi Everyone!

I stopped by the J. Crew retail store earlier today to check out the new arrivals.  Here are a few quick pictures.  It wasn't a big rollout.

The Optic-Dot Top:


I really like this top.  I love this website image featuring the Optic-Dot Top and the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Graphic Print.  However, I'm not sure that I can pull off this bold pattern mixing:


The Optic-Dot Top came home with me.  There is a new Tippi Sweater hanging up behind me in the dressing room.  Here is a picture of the sweater:


There is also a new Schoolboy Blazer:



And, finally, I grabbed the Silk Hen Blouse:



I will post a review of the hen blouse later this week.  Initially, I purchased the hen scarf, but I returned it.  I decided that the blouse is much more functional for me.  

Also, I have the following reviews scheduled for this week:

Tuesday:  J. Crew Medium Biennial Satchel in Blue Grotto 
Wednesday:  J. Crew Factory Printed Pencil Skirt in Polka Dot and Charley Sweater in Polka Dot
Thursday:  J. Crew Silk Hen Blouse

What do you think of these new arrivals?  Do tell!  

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. The hen is in, the hen is in! I want that hen shirt! I also purchased the optic dot top. I love it with that skirt, but try it with a skirt containing a finer pattern. I plan on wearing mine with a pair of fine glen plaid pants. Love the stripe tippi too! Thanks for pics Rynetta!

    1. Michelle: LOL, you're right, the hen is in!!!! I don't know if I can pull the pattern mixing off with the Optic Dot Top and the Graphic Print Skirt. It looks great on the model though! I love how the shirt is styled with the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Festival Blue in the Style Guide! You're very welcome!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  2. Thanks for the reviews, and I'll check in this week for the rest! I am intrigued by that hen shirt.

    In this rollout, I am in love with the Snowcap Quilted Jacket (item 97326K) in "Authentic Red". I don't need another jacket, but ... I will probably order this to try. This is something I would wear a lot, if it fit etc.

  3. Hi Rynetta! I am intrigued by the blazer! I am still passing on hens, although my son's girlfriend loves the hen, so I may order the sweater for her when it goes on sale! I think you should give the pattern mixing a try since you have the skirt..

    1. Hi WMM! The blazer was really cute. And, the quality is definitely there! I may try the pattern mixing, but I'm a bit nervous that I can't pull this bold look off. We'll see!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  5. not crazy about the hen sweater, but yes on the shirt! Was thinking about the scarf, but I would get more use out of the shirt!

    1. injanuity: I'm with you about the hen sweater. I really liked the idea, but the sweater fits small in my opinion. I love the hen shirt!!!! Like you, I'll definitely wear the shirt more than the scarf.

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  6. I just bought the Graphic Pencil skirt, and I love it. (Thanks to seeing it on this blog!) I am on the fence about the optic dot top, it may be too much for me to pull off, but I have the horizontal striped navy & off white silk shirt from last Fall and a navy blue Tory Burch Simone cardigan that will go well with it.

    The Tippi sweater is very nice! Thanks for posting.

    1. Buffy Alten: Thanks!!! I am SO glad that you got the Graphic Print Skirt. It's a really great print! I'm not sure that I can do the bold pattern mixing with the Optic Dot Top either.

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  7. Thanks again. I love merino and have the Tippi cardigan. I may try the pullover, although I rarely wear them. It is pretty!
