J.Crew Updates Website with New Arrivals!


"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know that J.Crew had an update to its website (click here to view online).

There are some new arrivals for men (click here) & women (click here). {wahoo!} It looks like Crewcuts (click here) has been updated, as did the J.Crew Collection (click here).


The OCTOBER catalog (click here to view) is still up. However, the latest NOVEMBER catalog is not. As mentioned by several JCAs, J.Crew posted several images of the newest catalog over at Pinterest (click here to view).

As for the new arrivals... I am excited for this roll-out. Finally! There are so many items on my "want-list" this time around. Here are just a few...

The Buffalo check flannel shirt-jacket (item B4937; $118.00) is beautiful. Hoping it is as nice in person.

The Cambridge cable chunky turtleneck sweater (item B5281; $98.00) is what J.Crew is all about! The range of colors... gorgeous!!!

The Cece ballet flats (item 64408; $125.00) are back in both leather and in suede. I am thrilled over this!!!

The Chateau parka (item B3901; $365.00) is one of the most stunning coats I have seen from J.Crew. I love the hood with faux fur lining.

The Downing tote (item A4399; $168.00) in Cocoa is perfect for Fall. I love it!

The Majesty peacoat (item 49360; $298.00) now comes in more vivid hues. Amazing!

The Plaid tassel scarf (item B6447; $59.50) is the perfect accessory for this Winter. Another love for me!

Overall impression... Welcome back J.Crew, oh how I have missed you!!! :)

Don't forget! J.Crew is offering customers to take an extra 25% off select full priced items and an extra 30% off all Sale items (with some marked as an additional 50% off) with promo code TGIFALL. The offer expires October 26, 2014. 

What items are you most excited about and why? Which items are you surprised (or not surprised) to see? Which items did you hope would be included? Were you expecting a bigger roll-out? Also, did you receive the latest catalog? :)

J.Crew's November 2014 Catalog on Pinterest

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know that there are several images from the November 2014 catalog on Pinterest. (Click here for J.Crew on Pinterest.)

"Thanks!" to
Silver Lining
(in this post), also posted the catalog up on her instagram, check out here.



























Well I am cautiously optimistic about the latest roll out! There are a lot of items that look nice. I also noticed a lot of oversized scarves. It makes me wonder if this is in response to Zara's Blanket Scarf, which was seen on every blogger last year. (I own my fair share of them too!)

Once again, the Men's photos all look amazing! The styling is classic and cool.

On a related note, the catalog is already available in J.Crew stores. Plus, it is being shipped out to customers via snail mail.

Word among several JCAs is that the next roll out of new arrivals (online) is tomorrow. Brick & mortar stores might already have items on the floor.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming collection? Are there any pieces you are super excited about? Does your local store carry any of the new arrivals yet? If so, please share!
