Factory First Look: New Arrivals {free shipping and a sale}

"Thanks!" to many of you, including st and audreybella (in this post), who shared the following news/email from J.Crew Factory with us.

J.Crew Factory is offering a sneak peek at the latest arrivals with prices up to 30% off! They are also throwing in free shipping (no min! no code! just click through the email). Both these offers are just for today! So check your email to see if you got the invite.

The offerings at regular J.Crew and J.Crew Factory are really overlapping now! The Factory jacket used in the email image has its counterpart at J.Crew in its current season. Kind of interesting if both are selling well...

  1. I saw a couple things that I liked. Has anyone bought a cotton maxi dress from Factory? I'm wondering about the fit and if I should go with a small or XS.

    1. I have the Factory cotton floral maxi dress and the striped tee/tank maxi dress. I'm consistently a 0 in JC dresses and usually a XS in tees (unless sleeveless, then an XXS). I ordered my regular JC sizes. They're fine and I've kept them, but I'm small busted and could have probably gotten an even better fit going down a size. If you have an average or larger bust, in my limited experience, stay with your JC size.

    2. Friendly femme,i tried the maxidress today and willost a review later.

  2. Does anyone have the link to the new stuff and would be willing to post? Thanks in advance JCAs!

  4. Review of factory new arrivals:
    -Riller girl dress,popover and tank
    -tank dress slid striped
    -eyelet dot tank
    -printed jersey maxi
    -white lace blouse
    See it on my blog here.

  5. These items are so cute and preppy. I wore my J. Crew (retail) whale critter linen sweater today and everyone loved it. I always get way more compliments on my clothing when I go more preppy than any other "style." *It could be a Northern Virginia thing though, lol.*

    Anyhow, liking a lot but will wait for a better price on all the items.

    I wore the factory beach print shorts (the peach ones with little printed pictures of beachy things) and the umbrella tee yesterday and they both fit well and felt great in the 90+ humid weather. The linen/cotton shorts wrinkled but not nearly as bad as I thought they would. Eventually I'll get photos on the blog, but probably not till next week.

  6. Love the dotted chambray bermuda, so cute

  7. Does any JCA see/try the Factory Embroidered Floral mini in neon lemon in the store?

    Can you comment on the fit and color? Last year the retail store carried a similar mini skirt. I live far away from an outlet store ... Thanks in advance~
