J.Crew and Madewell New Arrivals

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I hope all of you are having a fabulous day so far! :)  As most of you probably already know, both J.Crew and Madewell have added some new arrivals to their websites...YAY! There are some really cute pieces this time around...let's take a look, shall we? :)

On my J.Crew watch list:

*Doria Dress. I absolutely love maxi dresses, so of course I would love to try this one IRL.
*Perfect shirt in Casbah paisley. This print looks really lovely and has gotten positive reviews in the JCA community.
*Shrunken fisherman sweater. I love that it is now offered in Navy. I'm actually waitlisted for this one...can't wait to see it IRL! :)
*Sidewalk blazer in summer plaid . Love the color on this one! Hopefully I can snatch it on sale. ;)
*Oversize boy shirt in stripe. This reminds me of my Madewell Slim Stripe Shirt that I love. I've been looking for a similar one in blue, so this one may just fit the bill.
*Linen Maddie Pant in Gauguin Orange. I love the silhouette of the pant, not to mention the fabulous color. I knew I wanted to try them the minute I saw them on Marissa Webb in this photo from the Fall 2011 Preview. I really like the way she has them paired with the tan-colored blouse, so I will try a similar look by pairing them with this blouse(in Mineral Deposit) that I have from Old Navy.
*Summer plaid sidewalk short. Oh how I wish they would make these in with a longer inseam! I just cannot wear a 4 inch short, but would have definitely tried them if they were 7 or 9 inches.
*Tisbury bucket bag in Natural. What a cute bag to carry in spring and summer with more casual outfits.
*Double-strand charm necklace. Love the layered look and the fact that it isn't over-sized (especially since I'm absolutely loving delicate necklaces and earrings right now).
*Casbah scarf. I really like all three colors, but will go for the Jade if the perfect-shirt in the same color/print doesn't work out.

***J.Crew is currently offering Free Shipping on $100+ until 4.29.11 with code U39C8G OR 30% Off Sale Items plus Free Shipping on $150+ until 4.28.11 with code OURTREAT.

On my Madewell watch list:

*Noonday stripe maxidress . Maxi dress, stripes, plus it's blue(one of my favorite colors)...need I say more?
*Sleeper-stripe Boyshirt I like the lighter color...very spring-like.
*Noonday stripe shutterbug top. Love it in both colors and how they have it styled with the belt...very cute.
*Embroidered dot top. This one has been on the website for a little while now, but I still felt it worth a pretty and feminine. Love the embroidered detailing and both colors.
*The Shiprock flip-flop. The Desert Sky stripes are really cute...very fun to wear with a basic navy dress to add some interest to the overall look.
*Printed Twirl Tank...nice colors. Looks comfortable and easy to wear for warm weather.
*Striped sahara sunset blouse...yes, more stripes.;) I do like how they have it styled as a jacket over the tank. This is a nice alternative to wearing heavier weight jackets in the warmer months while still achieving a similar look.
*Pleated pembroke dress . Granted, it is short (too short for me to wear), but that Glam Pink shade is gorgeous!
*Palm Paisley Dress. Adorable print and I like the overall silhouette, too.

***Madewell is currently offering FREE SHIPPING/NO MINIMUM with code YESPLEASE at checkout until 4.29.11.

What are your thoughts on the New Arrivals at J.Crew and Madewell? Is there anything you're interested in? Have you already tried or purchased any of the new pieces? Please do share! :)



  1. I haven't had a chance to look at Madewell yet. I have checked out the J. Crew new arrivals and there are some things I really like. I must have the Jane dress.

  2. Hi Desert Flower! I also wanted to let you know that there is a new Madewell skirt on Shopbop that hasn't made it to the Madewell site yet. Click here. :)

  3. The shorts look super cute!

  4. I was checking out Madewell yesterday. They're going to open a store in SF this Summer and I can't wait. The Bronze Curator Top, and Bronze Curator Cardigan immediately caught my eye. Most of the dresses I like are either too short, or have spaghetti straps, which isn't an option for me.
    My J Crew Wish List for May is embarrassingly long. The Jetty Dress, The Caroline Dress, and the Farrah are just a few of my wished for items. Happy Wednesday, FFM!

  5. I adore that Casbah scarf in Jade! So gorge!!!

  6. For whatever reason, I much prefer MW's shoes and casual styles over JC's. And their sale prices are pretty steady, not crazy up and down like JC's. Eyeballing some of MW's new sandals and tops. May have to take a drive south for a shopping excursion soon ;)

  7. Its all so cute! I have some serious grabby hands right now!!!!!

  8. It all looks so cute... I need to check it out! Those little check shorts are pretty adorable!

  9. I love those black and white checked shorts and the big sunhat

  10. yogagirl: I agree! :) Thank you for stopping by!

  11. JulieStyles: Oh you are so lucky to be getting a Madewell store near you! I have been told that they have no plans at this time to build any here in Florida...very sad! Great items on your J.Crew wishlist btw! :)

  12. Andi: That scarf IS gorgeous, isn't it? I think it would be beautiful on you...I hope the color works for me. Let me know if you get to see it IRL! :)

  13. Closet Crisis: I'm with you on liking a lot of Madewell more than J.Crew, and it's been happening for a while now. I think I actually get more excited to see their new arrivals than I do J.Crew.

  14. THIS BLONDES LIFE: I also have a LOT on my wish/watch list. We both need to win the lottery, no?

  15. Desert Flower: You're welcome! Let me know if you decide to try it. :)

  16. Blushgirl: Definitely take a look...lots of cute pieces to love. I think the shorts would be adorable on you, too! :)
