  1. Madewell is 15 percent cash back on ebates and some sale items are 50 percent off. A lot seems like summer, but the vegan leather pull on Paperbag pants are further reduced and available in several sizes. I ordered them a few days ago and they shipped already—unlike several Nordstrom Rack orders which are taking forever.
    Mail is very slow here too, and sporadic again, which may be because my regular carrier isn’t around or maybe the issue is higher up,

    1. USPS is super awful right now. I have a package that was shipped Nov. 30 from PA and all the tracking says is it left that post office and will be arriving late. It's probably just sitting in a truck somewhere. I think the USPS just can't handle the increased demand.

    2. Mail Innovations is a pain. I had one item that took 29 days and another that took 21 days. I'm just an hour away from the JC ware house in Lynchburg, so if it ships out of there via UPS, I get it either overnight or the next day.

  2. Some nice discounts! I bought the sock booties for $43. Been watching them. Would bid on few other things but Still can’t use my $10 coupons! Very frustrating!

    1. @Kate, I’m not sure what’s going on. It call a VPS. Mine are working fine. No issues ever

    2. I emailed CS. They say they can adjust my order after placement but my coupons don’t work. It’s annoying! Hard to use a gift card with adjustment process!
      I did use one on phone order. Then used 2 with other emails! Now they don’t work at all and I have 3. πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚
      Glad they working for you Lynn. Are you using your phone or computer. What browser are you using! I tried few things and still don’t work !!!

    3. This is timely since I just hung up from CS about these $10 JOY cards. I know that everyone here is savvy enough to end the call if an agent isn't helpful and call back again. Sometimes you just have to! My first call about this card was brief because the agent told me that I could only use the card once. I know that, but this is a different card with a different number. She tells me that doesn't matter. You can only use one JOY promo even if the number is different. Wrong. She also said they are not stackable with other promos. Wrong. I ended that conversation, called again, and got another agent named Brook. All went swimmingly--no issues whatsoever. She also said, "I'm sorry for this inconvenience. They are working on it." Since I had two separate (unused!) cards with different numbers, she did have to do separate orders for each card.

    1. Looks like a pant you might pick!

    2. I ordered those pants in all three colors in 00, and I so wish I could have kept them. They ran very large. I am 5'3", 100 lbs., and they were just hanging on me. I liked them a lot, but not enough to have to alter them that much.

    3. I used my $10 on one item, then tried to use another on a separate order and it wouldn’t go through.

    4. I also liked the lace paper bag pants, but I have more than enough pants. Paper bag pants work well on my small waist/hips and big rear/thighs.

      I have the black silk ones from Fall and they will work all year. I like those pants much better than some of the reviews.

    5. I also have the silk pleated pants in two sizes but haven’t worn them yet. They haven’t worked for what I needed the few times I got dressed, πŸ˜†.

      So re: Crochet-trimmed pleated trouser
      Item AQ778
      I started with my size 0 and they bunched badly around the crotch. To me this is typical of a pant where the rise is too low to sit on my waist (long torso) and the legs are made for less athletic thighs (an issue my trainer confirms). The 00 fit but the thighs were tighter than I would want. My favorite fit was the 2, but it sat low on my hips and reminded me of how Jenna wears her pants. It doesn’t necessarily enhance my shape but it has it’s own kind of appeal. Price in store was $68.99 with 50 off sale. I could have asked them to price match but honestly wasn’t sure. I should add they look nothing like the way they do on the model, where it looks like a super high rise and slightly tapered ankle. These were pretty straight from hip to ankle on me, not too much different than the high rise pleated linen pant of the summer. These also seemed very well made (fully lined) and just a decent pair of slightly cropped pants.

      For s#it’s and giggles I tried on several pairs of black pants.
      Peyton full length stretch in 0 (AB645). Would have to really suck it in to button them so I didn’t want to bother.
      High rise Cameron stretch in 0, huge everywhere.
      Pull on peyton velvet pants 0 fit but meh.

      Maybe this will help someone.

      The silk collection red chains shirt was on display and I saw it on sale today so I tried it. The 4 fit comfortably. The brilliant sunset color seems to be getting brighter and more orangey. I was wearing my chateau puffer in red from last year and even that seems a bit different in color, less red and more orange. I didn’t try on to compare.

    6. I took some dressing room pics but the lighting was so poor it was hard to tell. Now that I’ve gotten home and lightened up the pics I do think I like the 2. I’m really not into anything too fitted these days so I wouldn’t mind another loose pair of black pants. Gotta check my “inventory” and see if it’s makes any sense.
      The gray was really nice, with black trim but I know from experience that color feels too corporate for me.

    7. @pbanos, how do you get the silk pants to not get staticky? I just tried mine on with a wool sweater and they’re as comfy as sweats but I got static cling immediately.

    8. @Suz, try a quick swipe over your legs with lotion first. Also rub a dryer sheet over your socks. It's a dryness problem.

      Delete
    9. @SuzHas, thank you for the reviews! I’m always tempted by black pants. Thank you for posting the details about the crochet trimmed pants, I hate it when the model pics are really off.

      Delete
    10. @Suz Has thanks for the reviews. I used to really like the Brillian Sunset color, but now it is just orange. The last piece I tried was the scoopneck pefect tee- nice cut on me, but then I realized how bright orange it was, really no red to it, and I don't have a place for it in my wardrobe.

  5. Here’s a shipping tip. If you decide there are items you don’t need before Christmas Jcrew will send you a 25% off coupon at the end of this month or by Jan. 1st. A VPS told me this morning.

    1. I saw then when I put in an order this AM -- if you chose an after Christmas delivery date it said it would give you 20% off a future order. That was fine with me I'm in no huge hurry for my turtlenecks and socks :D

    2. Thanks for the shipping tip @lynn. Just ordered a scarf, don’t need it in a hurry and 25% off will come in handy as I have my eye on a few things.

  6. I'm not sure if anyone has posted about this yet, but I really enjoyed Jenna Lyon's new show on HBO Max. She talks about leaving J Crew and how hard the adjustment was, and I enjoy seeing the J Crew pieces that she wears. Light and fluffy entertainment! Anyone else watching?

  7. The $10 coupon works if you use a different email address each time.

  8. I was really surprised to see that the $50 off $150 worked with today's CHEER promo! Preordered some long torso swimsuits that usually sell out for a great deal!

  12. Any JCAs every try the men's flannel pj bottoms? I ordered the Christmas Sweater Dogs in XS because of the lack of cute/cheesy/cheerful women's options.

  13. Has anyone snagged the pink tartan parke blazer? how does it fit? I’ve been on the hunt for it, but it either disappears from my cart or my order gets canceled. hopefully it restocks plentifully before winter is out.
