J. Crew Factory - June (I)

I have a few factory photos to show you that have been sitting on my computer's drive for a while. Some are from back in May, but since the items were not on the website yet, I figured I should wait with my reviews.

Here's the Factory Long-Sleeve Maritime Boatneck Tee size S. This is made from the same thick cotton of the Maritime Dress. There is a small zipper detail on the left seam. I liked this in all 3 colours it comes in: orange, blue, navy.

If you haven't had enough of sequins, here's another one for you: the Factory Graphic Zig-Zag Sequin Tee size S. It's pretty, but a pass for me. The skirt a No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton item #59369 in size 2 and 'golden sunflower' that ended up in the Factory store. There was a pile of them, including quite a few in neon pink.

Factory Short-Sleeve Anchor Cardigan size S. It fits TTS and if you are a fan of anchors, you will like it. This one is also a pass for me. The Factory Printed Pencil Skirt in Stretch Cotton, size 2 and 'dark pumpkin,' however, is a favourite and I ordered it with the SHOWPNOW promo. For once it seems the website is well ahead of the B&M store and offered better deals.

Factory Cotton-Linen Tank size XS fits large, so size down.  It is not sheer at all, which I liked. The edges are frayed, which I know a lot don't care for, but for a summer casual top, I'll take it. The jeans are item 24679 size 28 and liked them quite a bit.

I also liked the Factory Thandie Sweater in Rugby Stripe size S. This one fits TTS and is cotton, I blogged about the solid version here before.

The SHOPNOW code is still working for any J. Crew orders through midnight tonight. The B&M store still had the 30% off sale items as well. 

I was told July 18 and August 8 rollouts at the Factory store will be quite large and will have fall items. I cannot think of Fall just yet. We have just barely started to warm up our bones up here. How about you?

Thanks for reading, and hope you have a great end of the week!


  1. Thanks for the reviews. I am underwhelmed by the latest Crewlet rollout but am looking forward to what's to come in the fall!

    1. Same here, Jenni, although a few pencil skirts were quite nice this summer.

  2. I love the paisley pencil skirt, I have the retail version and wear it a lot. I'd definitely get the factory version if I didn't have it already. I'm Intrigued by the maritime sweatshirt. Thanks for the reviews Rose.

    1. I didn't go for that one last year, but when I saw it in the factory rollout, I knew it was a matter of time before I'd bite. You would love the sweatshirt, I'm sure. You are welcome, and thanks for stopping by!
