Minor Update to JCA Blog {finallly, a "search"}

I just wanted to quickly mention that there is a new search box on the J.Crew Aficionada (JCA) blog, located on the upper right hand side. The new search box (powered by Google,) will allow JCAs to search within the *entire* JCA blog.

So what's the big deal? Well the existing Blogger's search feature (on the top left) only searched the blog's posts, but not the posts' comments (and the comments are where the best information is shared).

Hopefully this will make sharing information with one another much easier. {wahoo!}

Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Alexis: what an AWESOME feature. I can't tell you how many times I've searched entire posts/comments for reviews on a particular item or how an item might fit. This is a godsend...you are the best!!! Thanks so much!

  9. Thank you! Awesome addition!

    On another note --

    I must tell you J Crew fans that I am sooo disappointed - I was one of the few who snagged the Aurora T straps during this last sale and they arrived today and DO NOT fit!!! So, I am debating what to do next - I didn't realize I needed to order up - anyone else have a problem? I am so sad as I was soo looking forward to them!

  10. One more thing - speaking of searching - anyone looking for the Auroras in size 6 or 8 - if you google them, it will direct you to the crew site where you can buy them. However, if you search on the website directly, they don't come up in search results!

  15. Thanks for adding the search! I love it!!

    OT: there was a HUGE update this morning, but a lot of the items gave the red sold-out message :( that is so frustrating! I was so excited! :)

  16. Alexis, this is WONDERFUL news. I really rely on the JCA reviews, and since I mostly wait for things to go on sale, it will be so helpful to be able to go BACK to earlier reviews.

    BTW the dotted Victoria popped back this AM if anyone is looking for one.

  17. Everyone: Thank you *so* much for the kind words! I really appreciate. I am also happy that the search button works, because all the best information came from the comments. :)

  20. Why can't I find the collection pieces on line? I don't see the link under new arrivals.

  21. Silver_Lining & Cyclone: Thanks so much!!! I am excited about it too. :)

    ladolcevita: I don't think they have updated the Collection link yet. The original collection link (click here) still works, but it has not been updated. But there are Collection pieces because we did get to see the Fall Look Book awhile back (click here).
