J. Crew New Arrivals Picks

Last weekend I was able to get my hands on a very coveted August catalog. Pardon me, Style Guide. Today I noticed the website has also been updated with the new arrivals I had shown here before. This time it seems there are a lot more things I like than on previous occasions. 

First is the Pleated Chiffon Blouse in the 'mauve blush' colour. I can't wait to try this top on.

Jeweled Sateen Shell is cotton, so less pretentious than the silk, and hopefully easier to care for, even though the label says 'dry clean.' I usually wash my 'dry clean' items inside out in a garment bag on the delicate cycle of the front loading washer without any problems. If I wanted to copy that look, I would probably go for Anthro's Sanctuary Camo Chinos which I tried on last weekend and loved.

Next is the Liberty Popover in Strawberry Thief Floral. I liked the stylized birds on the fabric, so I was curious about the name. Wikipedia came to the rescue.

Lace-Front Sweatshirt. I am a fan of lacy tops or overlays, and I like this one as well. The 'heather natural' is on my wishlist. The intricate lace work is beautiful.

Heathered Fleece Zip-Up Hoodie in 'heather onyx' and 'heather pacific.' I love both these colours.

Merino Tippi Sweater in Embroidered Tile. This was one of my first favourites from the August catalog. I  love all shades of purple and geometrical designs.

Jeweled Sweater Tee in 'navy cabernet' is also on my wishlist.

Collection Silk Mohair Sweater. This one escaped me up until now. I love silk and I love mohair, but I have never seen them combined in a yarn before. Luckily I am not sensitive to mohair, so if it gets down enough in price, I will consider it.

Sara Dress in Lace. This one comes in four different colours. I love the 'black' and the 'poppy.'

Everly Leather Pumps in 'mulberry.' I have them in 'burnt sienna' suede and would love a burgundy pair.

Goodwinn Purse in 'pinot noir stone to go with the pumps above.

These are some of my favourites. How about yours? 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, everyone!


  1. I think I stared that at Goodwinn purse for about an hour on the website yesterday. SO. DAMN. GORGEOUS.

    Bold Subtlety

    1. I think a lot of us have that wishlisted. :)

  2. We have a lot of similar picks! I LOVE the Jeweled Sateen Shell; it's gorgeous IRL!

  3. Great picks Rose, I missed most of these items. The Goodwin purse looks like a Celine knockoff, so cute. I ordered the lace-front sweatshirt so I'll share my thoughts but you will probably see it in store before that happens. I still haven't been to the Calgary J.Crew store because Chinook mall is too much of a madhouse for me.

    I wish I had your ability to tolerate mohair. It feels so soft to the touch but I get a very different feel when I wear it.

    1. I am planning on a short trip tomorrow or maybe on Sunday. We'll see.

  4. I never noticed the lace front sweatshirt until you and xoxo pointed it out. very nice! Will wait to see how it looks IRL. I actually really like the goodwin purse a lot and that would be so nice with the boots i bought in the same colour last year, so that is now on my wish list. Am hoping for a good sale!

    1. We all are, WMM! Hopefully one is just around the corner. :)

  5. I love burgundy and those everly pumps would be the perfect fall shoe! Sigh, I will admire from afar.

    1. Just wait for a sale, like some of us are! :)

  6. Great picks! I'm loving some basics in this rollout: keeper chambray in dark rinse, no. 2 pencil in heather pine and tipped DS wool, jeweled short sleeve sweatshirt (don't know where I'd wear that thing @@) chambray boy shirt in embroidered dot. Oh, let's not forget twinsets, cashmere in heather sky and jackie in pale citrus. Yeah, I know. I need to win the lottery.
