I was able to stop in at my J.Crew and snap some pictures of the new Striped Necklace Tee in dark red/navy, which isn't online yet, but is in stores now, for $65. It also comes in navy/ivory and a dusty pink/ivory. I felt like the burgundy/navy was a new color combo for me, and reads slightly more fall/winter as well.
I was just saying that I do not need any more bling in my closet. I have a jeweled sweatshirt and a jeweled collar blouse, and, well, some sequins. And yet, this one called to me when I put it on. It didn't scream bedazzled to me, as the colors tone it down. I'd wear this one out during the day and not feel too fancy pants. This is a size small and it's a great fit and a nice length. I could fit a button-down shirt under it, and it's thick enough that the buttons don't show though. Nice and sturdy. If you have a 20% off bounce back card, I think it's a pretty reasonable price.
The Quilted Tack Jacket in navy wasn't on my wishlist, but I thought I'd try on for those of you interested. They didn't have a small, so I tried an XS, and that's the size I'd go for. So I'd say it's running a touch big. It's not as short as I imagined it would be, but it does look pretty boxy on me, so it wasn't the most flattering option for my body. I think the idea is preppy cute, but there are other brands that have done this one a bit better. The color can be popped in a fun way, which is a nice option. My store didn't have any Excursion Vests to check out, boo.
Oh, and this crystal bracelet in a total autumn palette was marked down to $15 before the extra 30% off. It's the stretchy kind. (Maybe hide it away as a little holiday gift for a friend/sister/mom?)
What do you think of these items? Are you looking forward to new arrivals on Monday?
