  1. New items are up (some not all though). Search for item type, not preorder. Tartan flats not online yet so I’m noticing everything isn’t there.

    1. Hoping someone will get an early access email, soon.
      From what I searched I added the white shirt w bows and leopard Topcoat to my wishlist.

      Lots of velvet again.
      The new Ratti print - polyyyyyy.
      Star print - one sleeve dress in winter?
      Prints are not sophisticated...not my cup of tea.

    2. I have two questions (for now):

      1. Why make the Ratti top in poly but the bottoms in silk? Would that look weird if you were trying to pair them together?

      2. Why release a star-print OTS top, skirt, AND a dress that looks like you wore those two together? This must have come from the "Department of Redundancy Department". ; )

    3. I would totally purchase the new Ratti pajama top if it was silk. Love the print but not paying $128 for polyester. Just no.

    4. @silver_lining Psst! Hey....do you like multi-colour star prints? Off-the-shoulder styles? Well then, you're gonna love our new rollout! What do you mean you're not so sure about off-the-shoulder in November? It's the *only* possible way to wear mutli-colour stars my dear, the only way.

    1. Thank you! Does anyone know if there will be another release before the holidays? I see a few pieces from Fall 17 Fashion week (light purple wide leg pants; light blue midi skirt) but don’t see some of the shoes and clutches. Fingers crossed. There are a few things I like including the leopard top coat but other were questionable.

    2. Hi through-these-eyes - Usually with these early access links, when the sitewide rollout occurs (our very own Ina mentioned this would be around November 6), there are a few additional items in it. That's probably where those tartan flats are. Also, if you go to the page with the Signet tote, there's a picture of a clutch with a grosgrain ribbon (I have no idea why) that looks to be similar in style to the mystery leopard clutch from NYFW. So that may still be released. There is usually another Holiday release between now and December, but with all of the change at JC this year, who knows?

    3. @silverlining thanks for the link. I sometimes get the early access mail And sometimes I don’t #sigh Did they offer a percentage off like they did with the last roll out?

  3. A few things I really like, but must shop wisely since I just don't dress up as often as I'd like. :( Love ❤️ the wide leg lavender pants from NYFW but I don't wear that color. If they came in the red Or olive I'd be tempted.
    The star print is very cute but agree with JSR, not sophisticated, especially not in a ruffle skirt.
    I like the velvet peplum skirt too but again, the colors are a little loud for me. Curious about the black lame pleated skirt, but I have my pleated faux leather skirt and although different, they might be too similar.

    1. Ive seen the star print IRL. Crewcuts made a top for girls. That’s where the print belongs...not Women’s.

  4. At least they are bringing back some pieces. Stoked about the 2012 boyfriend cashmere sweater. Hopefully it is the same quality too ...

  5. I'll be interested to see the full rollout but only a few things I'd like to try so far. I also can't understand the color choices for the blouses - it's November, I don't want coral or periwinkle, I want richer fall/winter colors.

    I love the Ratti print and the star print is pretty from a distance but...how about a silk blouse with no ruffles/one shoulder/off the shoulder? Overall the collection seems disjointed.

    From what was shown so far, I will be interested to try the wide leg crepe pant, the green drapey wrap top (which isn't showing in the color choices...),sequin tweed lady jacket, and heritage 1988 cable sweater (but acrylic :( )

    1. With you on the colors . . . the Resume dress was offered in Everglades green this past spring, which is a dark, forest green, while Bright Turquoise showed up for fall.

  6. If product H6664 is what I think it is...jeez...it’s not available till January?!
    Drake’s pajama top that was on NYFW.

  7. Sadly, I don't see a single thing I like except for some tartan pjs. :(

    1. Me too sadly. The only thing is the tartan pj set but $124 Cdn isn't very appealing. Can't believe it's the only item I'm interested in.

  8. I feel like this is the time of year when I would want everything! Sadly nothing to put on the wishlist. I agree with others that the colors seem off for fall/winter and there are still too many silhouettes/styles I am not into.
