Are you planning to participate in the J.Crew Accessory Contest? Have an Instagram account? If so, please share your link in the comments section!


  1. I also hope a JCA wins. That would be really cool.

    OT: silver_lining -- I sent an email to you.

  2. Nice! J.Crew is finally joining the bandwagon again to increase their social media marketing efforts. They really haven't been doing a lot comparing to some of their competitors. Maybe J.Crew knows the company doesn't need to spend that extra marketing money to an already well established loyal customer base? Either way, looking forward to participate. Thanks for sharing JCA!

  3. I'm old fashioned and would love to get a catalog. I would have expected February already. Has anyone seen one?

  4. IG user @monlinglee pairs her outfits with unexpected colors, very well.

    Good luck to all JCAs participating! $1500 is a lot of money! Too bad there isn't much to buy...I wonder if there's an expiration date on that prize money?

  5. Interesting contest! Since most of the jewelry I wear is JC, I'll probably enter, could be fun. Though I have to say right now I'd be hard put to find $1500 worth of stuff I want there lol. Waiting for spring with hope in my heart!

  6. Bah. Quebec resident here. I always wonder if I can get around these rules by giving another address. I've never won, so it's moot, but I'm sure going to try!

  7. With the Canadian dollar losing 20% I have pulled back on my spending. But that $1500 would really help scratch my J.Crew itch. I'm in!

    1. As a fellow Canadian....I to have stopped spending. I used to ship to the states (live in Vancouver) but with Visa you are looking at around 24%. I will now only shop in Canada and will have to wait for 50% off Sale to come even close to what I would get items for last year.

    3. Absolutely right. Have not ordered from JC since Xmas, when the dollar started its plunge. And let's face it - even when our dollar was worth more than the US buck, we did not get any breaks. So I will also be limiting my purchases to b&ms, and the sale rooms in particular.

  8. I plan on participating...especially since I at wear either J.Crew shoes and/or jewelry daily! They may be older pieces as I haven't found as much to love in the jewelry section lately but they're still J.Crew! My Instagram account is @fablifeforever

    I love checking out all of the JCAs on Instagram :)

  9. I also want to say that I like that J.Crew is attempting to get more involved in their social media channels. As a daily Instagram user, I always get excited when I get "likes" from retailers such as Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, etc. Even if it's just their intern going through their page and liking photos, a little goes a long way! Some retailers like Loft even post photos on their websites and it's always fun to see "real people" wearing their clothes. So hopefully there's more to come from Crew on the social media front.
