J. Crew - June (IV)

Here are the most recent items I checked out in J. Crew this past weekend. First off is the Perfect-Fit Stripe Cardigan. I doubt I would have given this one a second look in the catalog, but I really liked it in person. It's a medium cotton jersey in size S, and fits TTS. The buttons are matte gold, which is not very visible on the website photo. I liked this cardigan quite a bit, in both colours.

Next is the  Linen Colorblock Sweater in size XS and 'cobalt black.' It's a larger gauge knit and quite sheer, if you look closely. I would wear this over a cami. I think it has some potential.

The Linen Cable-Knit Cardigan size S was on sale for less than half price, plus another 30% discount applied. I am not fond of the pockets hanging like that so I may stitch them closed.

You have seen the Margate Purse here before. Below are more photos of the purse and the detachable strap. It is currently priced at $149.99, minus 30%.

And lastly, a clutch in fun stripes. Currently it's on sale in the store for $49.99. See it on Tammy here. It seems quite a few designers had similar ideas this year, because I found quite a few.

I have a few more photos, including from the Factory store, for later.

Hope you all have a great beginning of the week!


  1. I can see why you like the stripe cardigan, looks great on you. And I really like the linen colorblock sweater but I hate fussy clothes so that's a maybe for me. By fussy I mean needing a cami or special undergarments ...

    The clutch is cute.

    1. Thanks, tiffany rose! It is a pretty one. Yeah, I see what you mean about 'fussy.'

  2. I like the idea of a detachable strap on a clutch, I'm all about versatility. If the color were a bit more vibrant I'd probably bite. The perfect-fit cardi looks quite a bit different than the solid versions - gold buttons, shorter sleeves, shorter body and no pockets. It's a totally different look, I may have to try this one. Thanks for sharing Rose.

    1. Yeah, this one definitely is not vibrant. Yes, it's the small details in the cardi that made it nice for me. You are welcome, and thanks for visiting!

  3. I like that candy clutch, I kind of wish it came with a strap to make it more versatile.

    1. I see what you mean, but probably a jute strap would have gotten dirty quickly, I think.
