J. Crew - August (I)

The following photos were taken last weekend and thought I should post a few, given the SHOPNOW code at JC right now. The items are new arrivals, but already hot sale. Go figure.

First is the Boy Shirt in Snowcat size 4 and is already on sale. I sized up since size 2 was too snug for me in the shoulders. The fabric of this shirt is the same quality as the Liberty shirt I tried in an earlier post, I thought. The skirt 'goes' with a lot of colours on the bottom. The skirt is the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton size 2 and 'marrakech purple.' It looks blue on my monitor, but it is purple in real life.

Next is the Rugby Stripe Boatneck Top size XS and 'cabernet.' This is one size smaller than I usually wear in tops at JC. This top is a rayon/linen mix. I like the colour combo, but I am done with stripes (for now).

Next is the Liberty Perfect Shirt size 4 and 'indian red.' This shirt has a beautiful pattern and the colours in it would go well with several colour bottoms. The skirt is the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Herringbone size 2 (in the top photo). I LOVE the colour, but the fabric is so soft, it shows every single detail underneath. I sized up to a 4 to see if that was less of a problem, but it didn't help much.

Here are some detail shots of the shirt fabric:

That's it for now. Today I visited the store again (surprise!) and checked out some more of the new arrivals. I will have some photos in a couple of days or so. 

Summer is in full swing here but today I already got a fall/winter item since my size has already disappeared off the website and it was the last one in the store. You have seen the Two-Toned Cashmere Sweatshirt review here before.

Thanks for reading, and have a great Sunday, everyone!


  1. Great reviews. I like my skirts to hide every detail!

  2. I'm trying to be done with stripes but gosh that cabernet rugby stripe top looks good on you!

    1. I always think I am done with them and then another one catches my eye.
