J. Crew updated the website a day earlier than we are used to, and as always, I have to peruse the new items. Some lovelies there but phew!... Did you see some of the price tags? Is every other item called 'Collection' now to justify the hefty price tag?
One of my favourites is the Inside-out Fair Isle Sweater. I tried this on in the store yesterday and loved it. It is all wool, and a thicker knit than the Tippis. The 'inside-out' knit might be troublesome (read snag-worthy), but I am usually very careful with my clothes, so I don't think it would be a problem.
Collection Sequin Colorblock Tank. The B&M store had this in a tan/ivory combo and I liked it quite a bit.
Jeweled Sweatshirt is all cotton and it looks dressier than it is. Don't recall if this is a new item, but since I only notice it now, it is to me. :)
The Schoolboy Blazer in Wool Flannel in both 'modern red' and dark grape' caught my eye. The store had the red one and the fabric felt really nice. I'll try it next time I visit.
I loved the Majesty Peacoat last year and perhaps this year I will add one to my coat collection. Since I already have 2 light-coloured ones, I might go for the 'navy' this time. But I promise not to wear striped tees and foulard print pants though.
The Snowcap Quilted Jacket will sell quickly, at least in the 'authentic red' which I tried on yesterday. It's still much lighter colour than the Gaps' version I reviewed here before.
