Here are some of the items I tried in J. Crew a couple of days ago. There was a mix of basic colours, which was nice to see, and brights, which was even nicer, since I love colour!
The first item I tried on was the Tie Top in Navy Tweed. Unfortunately I grabbed a size 0, which is one size smaller than I normally wear in tops. It fitted me all right, but this is supposed to be worn over a shirt or a turtleneck swaater, in which case size 2 would have been just right. The fabric content label is in the 2nd photo. The skirt is the new Pencil Skirt in Super 120s in size 2, my usual size. I might prefer this to the double-serge wool one since our winters are not so harsh, usually. The 'warm sienna' version seems darker than the 'heather acorn' of the double-serge skirt (seen here) and would go with more things in my closet.
Next was the Perfect-Fit Colorblock Tee size S fits TTS for me. It's not a must have, but it would be a good piece for casual wear (definitely not paired with the wool skirt).
The Excursion Quilted Vest in Herringbone size S fits the same as the one I tried on last year. It looks way better in real life than in these pictures, and I loved this vest.

And lastly for now, the Toni Tassel Loafers size 8 1/2. This was a display pair, and they fitted large on me. I then tried size 8 (my regular shoe size) and those fitted TTS.
I have a few more reviews coming up in the next few days, so come back for a visit. Some of the new items that I like:
I was told more goodies will be arriving into the store tomorrow, so I am hoping to pop over there briefly, since I will already be in the area.
How about you? Anything you found exciting in the new roll-out?
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Friday, everyone!
