J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs!}

This is the weekly "J.Crew Reviews {straight from the JCAs}" post, to help each other share our reviews.

So if you have recently purchased, or stopped by a J.Crew store to try on an item (or two) from J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Also, this request is not just limited to clothes. Please feel free to discuss bags, shoes, jewelry, accessories, etc.

In particular, if you could mention a few of the noteworthy details like fit, size, fabric, and the like— that would be fantastic! Thanks in advance! :)

  1. There must be some site issues. Got an email that there are new arrivals but they are not showing up on the website. It seems like today is the release day with free shipping too. Hopefully the site gets fixed soon!

    1. Rigghht! I was about to post. I'm losing sleep over this. 😩😂 it used to update the night before by 10:30 PST, its 4 am..and it's taking forever.

    2. thought maybe it was just Canada...somebody need to get it together J Crew ! free shipping and nothing to order!

      Delete
    3. It seems like such a mistake to send an email announcing new arrivals and have it link to the last roll out. Most shoppers would just roll their eyes and walk away.

  2. Cannot open my shopping bag to complete my purchase.

  3. Totally psyched about new arrivals at the NYC flagship on 5th Ave last night. I went to pick up an online order and ended up buying 4 new full price styles -- a rarity for me! The SA said new stuff came in on Sunday night.

    They've brought back a Drake's style tiger print silky pant and button down top...loved both, bought both. I also tried a darling cardi with embroidered tigers but didn't buy.
    I picked up a pair of Sadie D'Orsay flats in glitter snake. So pretty!
    Tried the floral eyelet bell sleeve button front top in both colorways (navy and white). Loved both, bought the white.
    Sorry I don't have a blog or pics!

    2. Just ordered the Drakes tiger print Academy loafers online as well. Now someone dare me to wear this print head to toe : )

    3. How did the tiger cardi fit? I'm a Small for Tippis but Medium for Jackies and don't know what size to pick!

      Delete
    4. I will post pics of the tiger cardi in a little while.

      Delete
    5. @Alyssa....I considered the cardi to fit TTS but it's the first fitted cardi I've tried in ages so I don't have a reference point unfortunately!
      I tried it on over a t shirt and it fit nicely. My guess is if you plan to wear it over long sleeves, maybe then size up or choose your larger of 2 sizes.

      Delete
    6. Posted IRL pics and review of the cardi

  4. This cracks me up. A $248 pair of pants andtheinfo isn't even correct. A 34"rise? 23 inch inseam? https://www.jcrew.com/p/womens_category/pants2/straight/collection-tiewaist-pant/G8392

    1. Now that's what I call high-waisted ;-))

  5. I can see the new arrivals. There are a few new shapes that interest me, like the perfect top which is offered in a blue and a red floral, neither of which I'd want, but I think the shape is nice. It's like the square neck penny top (I think that's what it was called) but with a round neck.
    I find it interesting that jeans are still ranging from toothpicks to crop flare to straight leg, etc...maybe I'll keep trying the high rise crops I have and finally get used to them.
    A few new ballerina flats I like.
    Not as bad as I expected but I'm not whipping out my card just yet.

  6. OT. - Madewell has 30% off sale online and in stores. Unfortunately, a lot of items are final sale.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I saw that as I gave up on JCrew's site (still can't see all the new arrivals). I placed an order for a Timeoff tee and Holly Ankle Wrap sandal - both final sale, but the tee was $10 and the shoes $14, so I'm willing to risk it :)

      Delete
    2. I was contemplating those sandals, and then, poof! Gone. I tried them in store when they were $80 and didn't bite, but for $14 they're amazing.
      I ordered the time out tanks last week for $15 and they didn't ship yet so I emailed for a price adjustment and took a screen shot of them in my cart just in case.

      Delete
    3. @Suz - good to know, thank you! Yes! I did a screenshot the last time I emailed requesting a PA. It worked, even though the item had subsequently sold out. I have to say CS has always been so gracious, I really appreciate that!

      Delete
    4. Not sure if madewell will ship items the way jcrew will but the downtown Chicago store had both colors in several sizes of the Holly sandals

      Delete
  7. Site seems slow but I can see the new arrivals now. It the usual mix of cute and crazy. The new styles of tops - tiered, peasant, plus all the OTS - don't work for my chest (34DD) and aren't work-appropriate.

    I have to say - I like the camo. A little camo looks very "fall" to me. What do y'all think about the camo items? How does one over 40 wear it without looking like a fashion victim or Duck Dynasty extra?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. @Ruffles, I can't see the new arrivals online, but assuming the camo items as the same as the ones we saw last week in the sneak peek (Tippi, cargo pants, shirt-jacket), I'm game (& over 40)! And if you want to avoid Duck Dynasty, don't wear it like i did earlier this spring -- camo mini with a Traffic Safety Orange v-neck, hahaha! I told my stylist that I was very 'Duck Dynasty' that day, hahaha :-)

      FWIW, i generally like mixing white lace or other light-colored tops (light pink or blue) with camo. I bought a camo button-down from H&M this past winter and I like to wear that with my green JC moto pants. I definitely want that Tippi and the cargo pants, though I'm a little less optimistic about those (last season's cargo pants fit terribly on me -- either too snug or too loose.)

      What do you like, Ruffles?

      Delete
    2. Oh weird, I just saw that there is now a Camo T-shirt (wasn't visible in Sneak Peek last week), but the cargo pants in Camo are no longer showing up. Wondering if those were meant for the Fall release instead.

      Delete
    3. Omg i love the camo tippi! Will post pic soon.

    4. Jcrew posted a how to wear camo guide. https://www.jcrew.com/womens_feature/camoprint.jsp?intcmp=pdpfeature

    5. Thanks, ladies! First promo code and the Camo Tippi will be mine.

  8. I love the camo too! I was wondering if I could pull it off in a meeting with a hardware buyer? I love to mix camo with feminine. So some pink with the camo etc.

  9. I love the new signet bag. I want it in pink! But I won't buy until a sale code

  10. Not sure what is wrong with my phone but I still can't see new arrivals. Tried browsing in private mode, cleared my cache, and still nothing. Now when I go to the site I get a site error. Weird.

    1. I can't see them either, Liztriden. :-( I'm looking via my desktop right now, though I tried earlier via my phone -- I can see some NA items that are on the front page (Eyelet Floral Bell sleeve top, for instance), but not the rest of the items. Womp womp. Hopefully, it'll be fully straightened out later today.

  11. I couldn't see the new arrivals in Chrome. However, when I opened a new incognito window, I could see them... along with somebody else's name, cart and wishlist. Um...

    1. This kinda happened to me too. Someone's wishlist and cart. I'm worried whatever this glitch is will leave our accounts vulnerable.

    4. I don't believe the J Crew website is secure. Shortly after saving my card info to my JC account, I had fraudulent charges. It's the only merchant who had my card info saved in an account. To be fair, it could have been compromised some other way, but that is less likely, as I am actually not a big shopper overall. The constant website issues and timing make me suspect them.

      Delete
    5. Did you contact JCrew about this @SarahFolz?

      Delete
    6. @maryen I didn't, since it's just my best guess, and I'm not trained. I filled out some paperwork for the investigation, though, and I'm hoping they have tracked down and alerted the source of the compromise.

      Delete
  12. I still can't see anything online. Neither explorer or firefox are working, tried clearing cache, etc. Frustrating.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I can't see anything new either. In review related news, I'm styling the classic J.Crew suede pumps on the blog today. This is an older style, but fit is TTS. I really love these pumps, because they're a dead ringer for the Manolos.

  14. Same here and the sale side has not updated since yesterday. I keep checking my wishlist to see what pops back. Ughh

    ReplyDelete
  15. The website is crazy today. If you go to the new arrivals hardly any of the things that they sent us on the sneak peek last week appear. If you search for items individually they appear. An example is the camouflage Tippi. It does not appear in this sweater section or the new arrivals section but if you search for Tippi you can find it. Strangely enough there are many sale items that are not appearing in the sale section. If you pull up the sale page and search by category they don't appear but if you have them bookmarked or search by item number all kinds of things show up in stock and ready to order at an extra 60% off. Some examples: Linen skirt in palm tree print and the embroidered palm Tippi. Both show some sizes in stock but neither one is to be found on the sale section or comes up when you search for anything but the item number. I hope someone is able to use this info to find some treasures!

    1. Ooh I'm intrigued. I'm guessing it's like the silver one from last fall? Since they kept the same online comments. I like the color matched w the olive colored tee. But what color shoes do you wear with that skirt?

    2. It's a beautiful skirt, but hard to wear unless you have somewhere to go, no?

  18. Also, just a heads up that the early access doesn't show all the new arrivals. I could see them for a little bit earlier today, but not now.

  19. Love this item name: "Mens-y cardigan"

  20. PSA: the sale section updated randomly for me and the new embroidered top is showing up for 60% off and no FS.

      Delete
    3. So it updated for me and my sale goggles were on. I actually ended up doing ok and did not go crazy. I reordered two items (paley pant and Thorpe top) Also snagged the Drakes elephant dress which will need to be altered as I tried it on and it looked frumpy in regards to length but for the price i am ok with that. The other item was the linen striped dress. I had the Thorpe tie waist shorts in my cart along with a few other things but they ended up being of of stock by the time I checked out which is a blessing! I might have to stalk the Thorpe short but other then that i think I am done.

      Delete
  22. I still haven't use my rewards and I was hoping to use it on a new jacket or item for fall. I'm pretty much done buying for summer and most of the things in this new roll out are summer/pre-fall items in fall colors. Do we know when the actual fall merchandise will be released?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Shopping Celle - Next month's roll out (that's usually the time they release all their yummy fall creations)..I'm guessing it will be released same time, around the 3rd week of the month.

    2. Hahaha! Thank you for the intervention! Just say no to elephants and double breasted brightly colored pant suits, especially when one prefers black.

    3. maqsad, lol. nooooo. don't do it. Just talked myself out of the collection embellished striped button back bell sleeve top.

      Tried to make a few fall appropriate purchases - the Nico Point sur boyfriend jeans, ivory cashmere shell and a black Regent blazer.

      Delete
    4. I stopped myself. Thank you both for the B-slap. I can barely wear all white without my 15 yo cringing and I have a gray and black houndstooth suit that doesn't get worn enough either. And the Oxford check coat and skirt...

      I'll keep checking back, but I think I'm done. There's a necklace I might buy for my mom. That's it.

      Delete
    5. I have those pants and they are really cute with a navy top. I would not wear the matching blazer with it.... ever!!!! And Suz from seeing your insta I can tell that pattern is not you. Wait for something better. I placed an order yesterday and today and feel a little regret already. It is amazing how easily I can get sucked in when things are marked so far down.

      Delete
    6. Good job Suz Has. Way to be strong! Those sound like good buys Anne!

      Delete
    7. That's why I'm glad I bought two iffy things yesterday before final sale. The postcard shorts which I think are adorable but not sure I can deal with the print, and the ruffle mini in white, which I think I may like with a belt and nude sandals. But at least if I don't they go back!

      Delete
    8. Good job, Suz! The crazy sale goggles are so persistent aren't they?!

      Hey remember that collection skirt? The huge tulle one? Well, my sister immediately also called me out as Scarlett o hara in it, so I think I'll be returning. Sigh. It was fun while it lasted...

      Anne, good job on the fall purchases! I've been naughty and bought a bunch of camo to try, but it's unlikely I'll keep it all/any.

      Delete
    9. @maqsad, Agreed! Scarlett O Hara, that's funny. Are you referring to the tan one or the pink (or mint/navy, I forget which color you got?) tulle? I recall you got both. I keep looking at the striped ruffle wrap skirt. But I know it's way too "much" for me.

      In the grand scheme of things I really haven't bought too much this spring/summer. Especially with our pending move (which now isn't going to happen most likely, 😭) I didn't want to bring too much in and I know my summer wardrobe is pretty simple.

      Delete
    10. @jessf, thanks. I should realize it's not me because I have a microgingham blazer from last spring that I put on and take off all the time. I just can't figure out how to wear it for some reason. I feel like an old man in it.

      Delete
    11. Anne - thank you for buying the Regent blazer! They are *such* a good price, but I already have far too many blazers in my closet. So while I resisted, it's nice to see others taking advantage of the great prices right now. :)

      Delete
    12. Agreed. Great time to stock up,

      Delete
    13. Anne--I just bit on the black Regent after reading that you bought one! I also got the seersucker and now am super nervous that I'm going to regret it, but it's a nicer more muted seersucker than the deconstructed regent (I returned this one). Ugh I was so mindful about purchases for the past 7 months (I didn't purchase anything from JCrew for at least 4 months and then ended up returning everything I did purchase over the last few months aside from some workout stuff). So...hoping this wasn't a mistake!! -lep33shops

  25. Holy popbacks! There were some items from 2009! I *almost* ordered some, but then talked myself out of it. Who knows where these items have been, and with final sale, I think I am better off. 2009!!!!!!!!

      It's confusing as to why items show up in Early Access and disappear when the new arrivals are posted.

  28. Wasn't going to order as I don't need anything, ended up - somehow - with three orders #whathappenedto shoppingless .....
    On the other hand they came to a grand total of $27 ! I ordered a bag tag ($6), a hair clip ($5) and a perfect shirt in navy Stewart plaid ($16). This last one was inspired by the NYFW FW17 show where they paired camo with navy Stewart plaid, I knew I wanted to recreate that look! So In the end it was sensible shopping !

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for mentioning the hair clips! I am trying to grow out my hair and it's at that horrible stage where I can't do a thing with it. I'm hoping a few cute clips to keep it up with help me bear with it for the next two months. $5 is a good deal for a high quality clip, which I much prefer to elastics at this length.

      Delete
    2. And your above comment had me so tempted by the navy Stewart plaid. Lol...luckily it's sold out in my size

    3. @Suz Has it's a great combo. But who knows, it might pop back tomorrow;-)))

    1. Noticed that too... that's a great sweater and I was trying to catch another on promo. I just checked a little bit ago and the colors were all back (full price) with just the aqua color on sale.

    2. Same here. Hoping the other colors will go on sale soon! Such a cute cardigan, even at 40% off it would be a good deal.

      Delete
    3. Absolutely! I was hoping for a promo. I may buy one at my local store..Anyone know of any in store promos on items that aren't marked down? Sigh...J Crew has really trained us to not pay full retail.

  30. Aside from liking the Silk Tiger shirt, and the new Chambray shirt; I'm also liking the Collection Thomas Mason Ruched Popover.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I tried to click on several items in the sale section that will not load. I chatted with CS about one item and it was sold out - so my guess is that if the page won't load, it's not actually available. Shopping is hard...

    ReplyDelete
  32. @TeriLynn13, I meant to say that I saw your dress in store (the lace eyelet shift that we were talking about the other day) and I'm happy to report that it's 100% cotton, including the lining.

    Not sure why the description says 'poly', but it seems like JC Copywriter from Space really dropped the ball on a few items in this roll-out ('Tencel' is still 'Tencil', etc).

    Hope your dress ships soon! (I know you ordered Petite).

    Speaking of dresses, I'm really liking Petite short-sleeve shirtdress Item G8822. Saw the Regular in store but didn't have a chance to try on.

    1. Maryeb - I asked JCrew on IG and they said they didn't produce one, and that I should refer to their styles online. She/He didn't specify if that meant their online store or Pinterest.
      I understand not printing the July Style Guiide because it's always been very thin (less rolled out) but nothing for August??

      My guess September will happen.

      Delete
    2. The images in the Looks We Love and summer packing sections look like they would've been pages from the catalog. I hope JC's not being penny wise and pound foolish in scaling back on the catalog - I think that's always brought a lot of interest (at least from the JCA's!).

      Delete
    3. Thanks, @JSR.

      Agree, @silver_lining. I always saw things in the paper catalogue that I somehow didn't see in the online images, even if it was the same image, especially things like jewelry. Seeing the details got me to buy things I passed by online.

      Delete
    4. Ditto. I understand the cost is high on a catalog but a few times a year (like H&m) would be nice. If they could do one for the fours seasons and holiday maybe it would be better than none at all.

  34. Styling question: is it too matchy-matchy to match your purse to your shoes these days? I picked up these beautiful blush sandals and now I'm thinking about the signet bag in blush. Do you think these would work together or will I look like I'm trying too hard? http://m.shop.nordstrom.com/s/louise-et-cie-clover-sandal-women/4541675?origin=keywordsearch-personalizedsort&fashioncolor=BLACK%20SUEDE

    1. I think in a situation like this, it's fine. The colors are in the same family. What I'm not a huge fan of is leopard on leopard on leopard. I had to stop myself from buying the signet bag in suede in the sunset/dove/blush combo. Luckily it's gone now. 😉

  35. I posted this in a reply to Ruffles above but since this is a lengthy feed, people might miss it. JCrew posted a how to wear camo guide with some of the new arrivals. https://www.jcrew.com/womens_feature/camoprint.jsp?intcmp=pdpfeature

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's also a "pre-fall capsule" guide here and "four ways to wear eyelet" here. Between these, the camo guide, Looks to Love, and summer packing images that could be the August catalog in digital form. I don't see any updates to their Pinterest page.

      Delete
    2. I finally got a minute to look more at the new arrivals. This morning I was too worried about stalking the sale section. I love the Lottie suede flats. Great colors. The pink is gorgeous with the multi color tassel ornament. I especially want the gray because it is a wardrobe need. The camo Tippi is also on my wishlist. Of course these are not included in the 40% off section.

      Delete
    3. Definitely not the same! I've saved catalogs since 2007 (omg 10 years) and will miss them....but yeah, I'd take 4x a year over nothing. : )

      Delete
    4. I've saved many catalogs from years ago too and am sad that it seems to be ending. While I haven't enjoyed them as much recently I used to get so excited over them.

      Delete
    5. Thanks, Shopping Celle and all for the heads up on these online "guides." I would've missed them.

      I've also been obsessed with J Crew catalogs/style guides FOREVER. I look forward to them every month. Sad face.

      Delete
    6. You're welcome Ruffles. I love to page through the catalogs. Maybe I'll start reading more now!

      Delete
  36. I'm embarrassed to say that I've placed a few orders today, I lost all willpower. I've been so good not to scroll through the sale section but the free ship and % got me. My iPhone was so hot by the time I was done. :) I picked up some basics like perfect tank, hair clip, socks at great prices. Also a sweatshirt for my hubby. I decided to try the newish one-shoulder top as it was selling out today and the 40% off made the price appealing. I'm guessing that by the time I get to a store they'll be out of my size.

    I didn't buy it today but I just received the Marcel George beach scene tee which I can't believe I snagged on clearance (Reg cdn price was $52). It's lovely and a great price now.

    1. And here I thought I was the only one today. 60% off sale and free shipping isn't really fair to us. It's like leaving an alcoholic to watch the liquor store; you just know someone will over indulge. So... ah... me too on the more than one order. Oops ;)

    2. @jan, I'm happy that you got such good deals - no one can blame you!! IKWYM about being good about thoughtful shopping, not scrolling thru the sale section for days and then suddenly, BAM! Same boat ⛵! Enjoy your goodies! (I didn't buy today bc I bought some things last week ☺️

      @jcrew guy in Canada, haha on that comparison!

  37. Lord, someone stop me. I just trolled the sale section and couldn't stop myself on a few popbacks even though its now FS: METALLIC ANKLE-STRAP SANDALS (nervous about these, because the size reviews are all over the place); Audreys in Edenham floral (unsure about the fit - never tried Audreys before); SCALLOPED SKIRT IN WOOL-COTTON GABARDINE (got the tall even though I'm short) and PERFECT SHIRT WITH EYELET TRIM (also got the tall and 1 size up bc of the reviews). Ugh I hate FS. They need to stop this 60% promo before I go broke.

    1. Ha! You need a lifeline. I just DMd two IG friends about the ruffle waist leopard pants for $16...I hesitated just long enough that they sold out. But I did get my 5'10" daughter the popover in flax for a great price. She tried on my regular length one yesterday and it looked great aside from being a bit short, so the 2T should be perfect and it's a nice classic piece for her.

    2. I do need a lifelime!! But all my friends are enablers - they love JC too. I had the pants in my cart too but while I was wracked with indecision, they sold out. Probably the best for all of us. I did send a panicked email to my online VPS and she told me to hold off next time (HAHA!!) until I can get measurements from her on FS items. She even tried to cancel my order for me but it was past the window. But the beauty of having a VPS has been I've been able to return FS items (I've only done this for 1-2 items though - not a lot). Another reason I highly recommend getting a VPS.

  38. This sale is bonkers. Every morning it's like Christmas and J.Crew popbacks are the gift. I hope this sale ends soon because I do not need another random collection item that is **so beautiful** in the moment when I have my JC goggles on...
