J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs!}

This is the weekly "J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs}" post, to help each other share our reviews.

So if you have recently purchased, or stopped by a J.Crew store to try on an item (or two) from J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Also, this request is not just limited to clothes. Please feel free to discuss bags, shoes, jewelry, accessories, etc.

In particular, if you could mention a few of the noteworthy details like fit, size, fabric, and the like— that would be fantastic! Thanks in advance! :)

The Great (Weekly) Exchange {looking to sell}

This post (of weekly posts) is for individual members who want to swap/sell/share among yourselves. This post is where you can mention your items and outside listing/ auction site (like eBay and eCrater & the corresponding user ID).


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. Thanks in advance for your cooperation! :)


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. :)

The Great (Weekly) Exchange {looking to find}

This post (of weekly posts) is for individual members who are looking for and interested in buying certain items. Please feel free to share a J.Crew store location and/or your outside listing/ auction site if it matches the requests made in this post.

Sought & Found: Did you visit J.Crew this {past} Weekend?

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!

Also, please let us know if your local store was/ is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

Madewell Promotion: Get Up to 30% Offf Your Purchase!

"Thanks!" to  many of you, including R (in this post), Silver Lining (in this post), as well as Liza (in this post), who shared the following email & promotion from J.Crew.

Madewell is offering 20% off purchases of $100+ and 30% off purchases of $200+ with promotional code WINWIN. This offer expires September 22, 2014. The fine print includes:

**Offer valid in Madewell stores and at madewell.com from September 18, 2014, 12:01am ET through September 22, 2014, 11:59pm ET. 20% discount valid on purchases of $100-$199.99 before shipping charges and taxes are added. 30% discount valid on purchases of $200 or more before shipping charges and taxes are added. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer. Offer not valid on jeans; denim jackets and vests; the Transport Tote (styles 53228, B2427, B3367, B1671, B2241); and merchandise from any of the following third-party brands: Chimala®, Dr. Martens®, NSF®, Penfield®, Rachel Comey, Saucony®, Sessùn™ and Vans®. In-store discount automatically applied at checkout. To redeem online, enter code WINWIN in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promotional code per order. Terms of offer are subject to change.
Of course the Transport Totes are excluded! Of course, I had my eyes on them! ;) That exclusion aside, this is a great promotion to check out Madewell.

I am L-O-V-I-N-G Madewell. (Dare I say, I have been buying more from Madewell's current collection than my good old fave J.Crew... whoops!)   


My latest recommendation from Madewell is the Coated Roadtrip Jacket (item A9951; $138.00). The pictures online really do not do it justice. This jacket is so beautiful in person that it is worth visiting the store to check it out. (My local Madewell store did an excellent job of featuring it on practically every mannequin in the store. It was just styled so beautifully!)

I took my normal size (size extra small) and it fits wonderfully. I have options on how to wear it: (1) If I want a more loose fit, I leave it as is. (2) If I want a more fitted look, I use the internal elastic draw string (so convenient!) Moreover, the interior lining is so preppy/beautiful with its blue/green plaid design (seen in the picture at the cuffs rolled up). Plus, it comes with a detachable hood... enough said!


Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Any items from Madewell that you would recommend? If so, please share!

Take an Extra 10-15% Off J.Crew Factory Purchases

In last week's "Latest Promotions at J.Crew & Factory" post, we learned that J.Crew Factory is sending out a postcard via snail mail to customers with a new promotion.

Well, they just got around to sending out an email with the same promotion: Customers can take an additional 10% off their online order at J.Crew factory using promo code FALL. Cardmembers enjoy an additional 15% off their online orders with code CARDPLUS. This offer expires October 5, 2014.

Customers can take advantage of this promotion in stores as well. Just click on the image above or HERE (which will take you to a larger version of the image) and print it out (so the associate can access the barcode).

Happy Factory Store Shopping!!! :)

JCA "Help Style Me!" Weekly Post

This is the weekly "Help Style Me!" post, where we can share items we are having trouble putting outfits together with. Elaine (in this post) says it best, "You know, that thing you bought because you love it and you keep pulling it out and then putting it away without wearing it?"

Please share your J.Crew item (either that you own or are thinking about getting) that you would love help creating an outfit with.

Also, please help out by offering your styling advice. Feel free to include links to your blog (where you incorporated that piece) or to Polyvore (where you showcased an outfit with that piece). Thanks in advance! :)
