Long time no see! I'm going to jump in with some reviews from the latest rollouts at J.Crew. New arrivals online this morning! Also, there is a new promo -- 25% off your purchase of $150 (code: LOVEJCREW), and
cardholders 30% off a purchase of $150 (code CARDMEMBER). Nice with all the new spring items online and in store!
Eyelet-Front Sweatshirt and Linen City Mini -- The Eyelet Sweatshirt is really cute, in a nice neutral khaki (Marled Cloud). Behind the eyelet is an opaque chiffon material. It wasn't see-through for me at all. I went with a size small b/c the XS was too short.
I love the city mini. I don't do too many minis anymore, but this one doesn't feel too short for where I'm wearing it, it's over a swimsuit, to a BBQ, puttering around. I'm happy they came out with the nice neutral flax color. I can do a 4, but like to size up to a 6 in this so I can pull it down just a little bit. Pockets! I was pairing the two together, but in the bright light, it looked like the flax has just the slightest lavender tint to it compared to the sweatshirt. But I only noticed when putting them right next to each other.
The Colorblock Shift Dress is made from the Maritime dress material I'm pretty sure, but they finally realized it would make more sense to have this dress in short-sleeves. I really like the color mix they used in this one, and the neckline seems maybe a bit wider than the Maritime, but I might not be remembering right. I liked it a lot. I went with a small in this, as the XS was too tight around my hips. There's a small vent on the sides, but isn't slit too high, and no zippers in sight. You can see it's still short, hitting a couple inches above my knee.
Factory First members likely received an email this morning to check out new arrivals online, as well as a (unique) promo code for free shipping. The new arrivals are 30% off (as marked). Some cute pieces:
I also just received my catalog and it made me happy, because there were so many smiling models in there, and I didn't think they all looked vapid or crazy, and the styling was cleaner.
Another fyi, Madewell has 25% off $125 and free shipping with code 4SPRING. Some cute things there as well!
What do you think of these new items? I have a few more reviews for tomorrow too. :) Are you exited about the new catalog and rollout?
Have a great day!
