J.Crew In-Store New Arrivals - July 2012

Green Brompton Hobo



Leather Polka-dot Invitation Clutch

Navy Downtown Field Jacket -Style 19034 - $148 (if I remember correctly)


On me in size XSmall which felt very comfortable, even through the shoulders. I am normally a size 0 or 2 in J.Crew jackets, and the XSmall is the size I will buy. (The store mirrors really need to be cleaned. The spots in the photos are not from the camera on my phone.)

What are your thoughts on the J.Crew New Arrival pieces? Are you planning on purchasing any of them? Have you seen them in person already? Please do share! I always love to hear from you! :)


P.S. Be sure to check out my post from earlier today: 'J.Crew Runway - Get The Look...'{Part Two}. :)

xoxo,

    1. You're welcome, Rynetta! The Navy Downtown Field jacket is super cute in person, and seems to be really well-made, too. It's definitely on my wishlist. :)

  2. What a treat to see these items, thanks so much FFM!
    Love the green Brompton, one of my favorite bags, and a navy field jacket seems genius to me.

    1. You're welcome Dani! The Brompton is one of my favorite J.Crew bags, too. I hope they offer it in even more new colors this fall. Isn't the Navy field jacket divine? It is definitely on my list for fall. :)

    1. simplydreaming: I really hope they run a full-price promo soon, especially since final sale has returned. It seems like forever since the last one, so it seems like there should be another one at any time. Maybe with the fall rollout...fingers crossed. :)

  5. See, this is the stage where I moan and drool, not a pretty sight. Love the Green.Leather.Brompton. Honestly, I have more green leather accessories than Robin Hood. Not that that means I have enough!

    I wish they would bring back the Foxtrot Jacket. That was a much better cut for me than the Downtown. I live in hope.

    1. wellfedfred: Your comments always make me smile, and the line about Robin Hood had me cracking up...too funny!

      I think the odds that they bring back the Foxtrot jacket are fairly decent. We've seen the return of numerous other jackets in different shades, so maybe the Foxtrot's return is still yet to come! :)

  6. FFM- thanks for the sneak peek! My personal shopper told me that the Thursday arrivals includes a No 2 pencil skirt in snakeskin print.. that could be my undoing! I am trying to do Dani's 3 Things for Fall. I am not sure if I will make it!!!

    I am like WFF - that green bag is gorgeous and would be a different approach to the fall. And think of it with the green Valentinas... but that would be 2 of 3 items... oy vey!

    1. You're welcome WMM! The pencil skirt in snakeskin sounds amazing...can't wait to see it!

      I shop from a list of new things I need or would like to have each season. I have done extremely well with sticking to it over the course of this past year, and it really does make me feel better about my shopping habits and my wardrobe in general, since it isn't filled with impulse purchases and other things I don't need/use. :)

  7. The summer is really flying by, I can't believe it's fall preview time already! The Downtown Field Jacket in navy looks great on you. I love mine (in black). It is so versatile and adds a bit of chic edge to any outfit. I have been wanting the Brompton Hobo for quite some time and this color is tempting for the fall. Thanks for the preview. Have a good Sunday.

    1. Thank you Awakening my Wardrobe! I agree that the summer is flying by, although here in Florida we still have at least 4 or 5 more months of very warm weather, unfortunately.

      I have also wanted the Brompton Hobo since it's debut, but didn't care for the larger size. However, once they came out with the mini, it made me want it all over again...I just haven't been able to decide on a color. I do have the mini in Safari cat and love it, so I'm hoping this fall will bring a new color in the leather bag that I can finally decide on purchasing.

      Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your Sunday, too! :)

  8. I have to have that navy Downtown Field Jacket! I've had the Brompton hobo in henna for years and have worn it to death...that green color is lovely. Thanks for posting the pics...would love to see some styling ideas from you with the jacket, you and I have a similar style, I always love your suggestions!!

    1. Hi Kelley! Yes, I think I will have to have the Navy field jacket, too. It really is very nice in person, and the color is gorgeous. Since I didn't buy the jacket, I can give some styling ideas using Polyvore sets if that works...just let me know. :)

  9. The navy Field Jacket looks amazing on you! Such a pretty navy too!

    I love that polka dot envelope clutch! I didn't see it Friday when I stopped in the store but it could've been due to the fact that I had my two children (both under 7) with me and I was quite distracted attempting to keep them entertained (Whew!!! That makes for a tiring shopping trip! ;)

    I did see the beautiful green Brompton but I ended up buying the Henna on Friday. I called J.Crew and inquiring about any new fall colors of the Bromtpon, I was specifically wondering if the espresso would be available again, such a pretty, rich brown. But, sadly, it won't be. They only mentioned the green for the Brompton and a new blue color for the Binnenial bags.

    Thank you for the great reviews, as always!

    1. Thank you Nicole! How disappointing that the espresso color isn't going to be offered in the Brompton again. I was also hoping for additional new colors, as well. Too bad they didn't do it in the new blue color that the Binnenial bag is going to be offered in. :)

  10. The polka dot envelope clutch is really pretty I like the navy field jacket however living here in the south I rarely wear coats as it is so that would not be something I need as you say as I have a closet with jackets i hardley wear as.it is!

    1. (original) Genny: Yes, the polka dot clutch is really pretty, more so in person than in the pic I took, too. I really wouldn't mind having one...hopefully on sale eventually. :)

      I completely understand what you mean about the jacket and living in the south. There just aren't that many days for us to wear it, unfortunately. It really is nice though. :)

    2. Good to know about the clutch being even better in person:) Hopefully I can get it on super sale or request as a gift. Thanks.

  11. Looove the Downtown Field Jacket in navy on you. :) I have last fall's version so I probably won't get this one. Must say the jacket is so versatile and wonderful. I wear it over casual, dressed up, really any outfit!! I also love the jeweled collection sweater you showed in another preview post. Thanks for all the sneak peeks!!

    1. Thanks Roxy! I don't have last year's version of the jacket, so this one is high on my list this year, especially since it comes in navy (which I absolutely love). Isn't that Jeweled sweater absolutely lovely? I am placing a pre-order for it, and can't wait until it actually ships out. :)
