J.Crew Updates Website with New Arrivals!


"Thanks!" to many of you, including Lisa T & Dmitri (in this post), as well as TeriLynn13 (in this post), who let us know that J.Crew had an update to its website this morning (click here to view online).

There are some new arrivals for men (click here) & women (click here). {wahoo!} It looks like Crewcuts (click here) has been updated, as did the J.Crew Collection (click here).


The Holiday catalog (click here to view) is still up. Wondering if they will put up a new catalog anytime soon...

Early Spring is not my favorite season for clothes in general. Retailers want to switch to warm weather clothes and I am still living in my cold temperature coats. With that said, I did find a few items I am interested in...

The Structured flutter tee (item C0770; $55.00) is cute on the model. Will be curious to see if the fit is just as cute in real life.

I am a sucker for cute accessories and pouches. Of course the Eyeglass Case (item C1395; $19.50) called to me. This will be mine!

I am still in sweater weather mode so of course the Mixed-stripe sweater (item C0370; $89.50) caught my eye. Stripes? Yes please!

I love the Rose gold crystal necklace (item C5170; $45.00) for its simplicity and delicateness. Just a stunning necklace to wear with jeans or with that little black dress. Perfection!

PROMO TIME! J.Crew is offering 40 to 50% off Sale items using promo code SALETIME. This offer expires February 1, 2015. They are also offering free shipping on all orders for just today.

What items are you most excited about and why? Which items are you surprised (or not surprised) to see? Which items did you hope would be included? Were you expecting a bigger roll-out? Also, did you receive the latest catalog? :)

The Great (Weekly) Exchange {looking to sell}

Please note: this posting is not for resellers, retailers or businesses. If you are a reseller, retailer, or a business, your comment gets automatically deleted & you will get publicly called out on it. :( So instead of this, simply do not post in the Weekly Exchanges.

Please note that any transactions are independent of this blog. (Especially since you will be using an outside listing/ auction site like eBay or eCrater.) I have no dealings or interactions with any of the potential communication, listings, or transactions. :) Moreover, please limit comments about items to swap/sell/share to the "Great (Weekly) Exchange" posts. (Refer to "A Quick Note to J.Crew Aficionadas" post.)

Do you have any items you would like to swap/sell/share among yourselves through your outside listing/auction site?

Sidenote: What's up with JCAs writing "sub" or "subscribing" as their comment? It just means they are subscribing to all the comments (which are then automatically sent to their email) in that particular thread. This way they can stay aware of all the comments posted. :)

This is the weekly "sale watch" post, to help each other find sale items at our various local J.Crew stores. ;)

If you are stopped by a J.Crew store this past weekend to see what's available (if anything!) in the SALE, or to see some NEW ARRIVALS {sigh!} in person, maybe you might be willing to share that with us in this post. In particular, if you could share with us a few of the noteworthy items that are available, at what prices, and potential sizes the store is carrying (as well as the store location)- that would be fantastic!
