Sunday Shopping: J.Crew New Arrivals

Hello Everyone! I hope you're having a fantastic weekend so far! Sunday Shopping is back this week and we are taking a trip to J.Crew. They just debuted New Arrivals on the website this past Thursday, so let's go take a look. :)
I actually found numerous items that I am interested in this time around and thought I would share them with you on our trip...let's go! :)

Madras Popover. Very cute and I love the colors. I'm sure it won't work for everyone, but I'd like to give it a try personally.

*Katie Eyelet it in the color *Aged Driftwood*.
*Lace-over Tank. Taupe is my favorite color on this one.
*Neon Leopard Spots Tee. The colors on this are really cute and perfect for the spring and summer months.
*Sailor-stripe boy shirt. As you know I love stripes and this shirt is no exception. I hope it doesn't disappoint IRL.

Lady Lace pretty, but the price tag seems a tad obsessive to me.

*Star Spangled Sweater. I'm undecided on this one until I see it IRL, and like it best in the Black Linen color. It appears to be the less-expensive sister to the Natalie Studded Sweater. (J.Crew did the same thing for the Crystal Constellation Cardigan and offered the Shimmering Constellation Cardigan which ended up being about $170 less than the original.)
*Rialta Tweed Jacket. Here's another one I'd like to see IRL. It looks as if it has potential, but again the price tag seems a bit obsessive.
*Liberty Bouquet Shirtdress. The shirtdress is one of my favorite silhouettes and is very flattering to my particular body type, so I'm thrilled to see J.Crew offering one this time around. Yes, it looks a bit short on the model, but I am only 5'4" so I don't think it will be that short on me. Hoping to try this one soon. :)

Crosshatch Chambray Shirt. Love the color on this one and it would be perfect to wear with white pants this summer. If I didn't already have this one from Madewell, it would definitely be in my shopping bag.

*Letour Floral Maxi Dress. Love, but again with the price tag...give me a break!
*Gallerista party dress. I'm listing this one because I love this print. I hope they offer it on some other pieces like a scarf or skirt. Oh, a cami in this print would be pretty, too.
*Dorrie Skirt. I think this skirt is very cute and pre-ordered it with the last promo. It has gotten quite a bit of negative discussion on JCA due to it's length, but once again, the model is much taller than me so I'm hoping it's going to work.
*Madras bermuda short. Love. Love. Love.

*Calais silk tunic. This is listed as a cover-up, but I'm hoping it will work over jeans or pants for a casual summer outfit.
*Islet paisley ruched underwire bandeau tank. Love this print and it's offered in two-piece swimsuit versions, as well.

What are you interested in from the New Arrivals? Have you seen any of these items IRL? Have you already made a purchase? Is there anything you love and would highly recommend? Please do share!

Have a beautiful and blessed day! :)



  1. i always love your picks FFM, and no exception this time around.
    I did buy the Liberty shirtdress online yesterday, I am definitely hoping it won't be too short. I love the Dorrie skirt in the red and may end up trying that as well. If you get yours soon maybe you could review it for us.
    Have a great day.

  2. FFM, i'm loving this collection too and have quite a few picks. From your list, i'd love to pick up the Katie cami in aged driftwood (though i like it in many other colors as well), lady lace popover, Bahia hobo, Calais silk tunic, and Dorrie skirt. I'm waiting for the the lace-over tank and ruffle tulip cami to arrive.

    Please let us know how you like the Dorrie skirt. The red is more of an orange red than true red if it's the same color as the silk twill pencil skirt.

  3. I like the Dorrie, too. I think 19.5" is a good length for a spring skirt. There were some pencil skirts last year that were 20". I guess if you're on the taller side, 19" is still an issue.

  4. I love the katie eyelet cami in driftwood as well. The color is beautiful and I love that you can see the eyelet detail so well on it. I think the color would wash me out though - I'm fair skinned, light blonde hair, brown eyes.

    If you get to J. Crew, can I ask you a HUGE favor? Please try on the katie eyelet cami, and the toothpick ankle jeans in white denim, and let me know fit for both? I really want to order them but have no idea with sizing for these items! I'm in china so I can't go myself!! haven't seen reviews for either on any blogs - have you?

    BTW I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale!

  5. Thanks DaniBP! I can't wait to hear what you think about the Liberty shirtdress! I will definitely let you know my thoughts on the Dorrie when it arrives. :)

  6. Cleo: It seems as if we always have the same items on our lists. :) I would love to hear what you think of the lace-over tank when you get it.

  7. Gigi: I'm with you...I think 19.5 inches is a decent length for a spring skirt, as well. I do sympathize with the taller ladies though. It really isn't fair that the skirts aren't also offered in tall sizes.

  8. MsHark: If I get the chance to make it to J.Crew I will definitely try on the jeans and cami for you. In the meantime, I'll keep my eye open for others that may review them and let you know. :)

  9. I purchased the Dorrie skirt (nightfall blue) and the double-row link necklace. I love both of them!!

    I think the length of the skirt is great, but then again I'm a bit on the shorter side.
