J. Crew September Sneak Previews & A Wedding

My J. Crew VPS is continuing to send me sneak previews of the upcoming collections, and I thought what an opportune time it would be to share these with the JCAs.

Liberty Catesby Floral seems to be the print to be had this fall, as it is used in quite a few pieces. My favourite is the Reversible Puffer Jacket in Liberty Catesby Floral .

Next is the Open-front Sweater-blazer, which comes in Heather Khaki as well as Heather Coal, and is made of merino wool. This will definitely be on my shopping list this fall.

Open-front Sweater-blazer,(G7746), $138 (similar here, here)

The off-the-shoulder tops are big this summer, and here's J. Crew's version of one. Off the shoulder is not for me, unfortunately. I have wide shoulders, and this look just magnifies them.

Striped Off-the-shoulder Tie-neck Top (H0853), $68
Avery Striped Pumps (G8160), $218 (similar here, here)
Peapod Earrings (H0212), $48 (similar here, here)

Lastly, shoes! I love J. Crew shoes, as I have quite a few pairs of them. I love the latest, colourful styles.

Velvet Slingback Flats (G8006), $128 (similar here, herehere)
Plaid Bow Flats (G8008), $168 (similar here, here)
Audrey Glitter Flats (G7855), $138 (similar here, here)

Hope you enjoyed seeing these new arrivals as much as I did and visit J. Crew soon to check them out in person.

And as my title is mentioning, I am attending a wedding soon... mine! I didn't think this would happen again, but here I am. Since I am not much for frills, this is a small affair with family and a few close friends. And this is the dress I am wearing. It is the Nima Short Dress from AllSaints. It is on sale in the stores right now. Although the colour is listed as 'champagne pink,' it looks very much like a very pale mauve to me. It is a beautiful, breezy cotton with lace accents, and hits me above the knee. And I promise I will not wear it with boots. :)

What do you think of this summer dress for a casual wedding? What do you think of the AllSaints offerings? 

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

J. Crew February Sneak Previews

Earlier today my online VPS sentme a few February previews, and I thought I'd share them with the rest of the JCAs. 

The first item is the Pencil Skirt in Ratti Striped Floral. It is made of cotton with a hint of stretch.

Next is the Cropped Ruffle Chinos. The ruffles are at the waistband and pockets.

A pretty top, the  Striped Boatneck Tunic with Tie:

And my favourite for last, the  Penny Windowpane Top with Cuffed Sleeves:

Have you seen any of the previews form JC yet? If so, what did you think? Please share!

Have a great Thursday out there!

J. Crew - January

I have had these photos for a while, but as I got busy with the holidays, I never got the chance to post them yet. On my last visit I noticed a few shirts that I liked, as well as the Wintress Belted Puffer Coat (size M, black). J. Crew has a version of this coat every year, it seems. I liked how warm and light this coat is.

The first shirt I tried on was the Buffalo Check-Shirt Jacket (size S, navy ivory). This was one of my favourites when it first debuted on the website and in stores, and it is currently on sale with code SHOPSALE (40%).

Another favourite, the Shrunken Boy Shirt in Coral Blue Plaid (size 6, coral blue), is made of a sturdy cotton flannel which I loved.

Inset Heart Striped Combo T-Shirt (size M, navy red grey) reminds me of the striped colorblock t-shirt I bought lat year, but with the cute heart inset. It is made of a thick cotton knit and it is machine washable.

Lastly, a pretty sweater: the  Tunic Cable-knit Sweater (size S, heather blue). The yarn is a wool, nylon and viscose mix and feels quite soft to the touch.

What else I am liking at J Crew right now:

How about you? Have you been to J. Crew recently to take advantage of the sales? Pleas share!

Hope you are all having a happy new year and a safe return to work tomorrow!
