Sunday Shopping: J.Crew New Arrivals

Hello Everyone! Sunday Shopping is back this week and we are headed to J.Crew to take a look at their first rollout for the fall season. I scanned the August 2011 catalog and posted it HERE on Friday in case you missed it. I thought it would also be fun to do some window shopping together today to take a look at the new arrivals, and I'll share some of my personal picks with you, as well. Let's go! :)

*The Hacking Jacket in Herringbone first caught my eye on Net-a-Porter last month, and I have been in love with it ever since. It is offered in 5 lovely colors and sure to be a great staple piece that can be worn for many years to come.
*Perfect shirt in indigo the color and the print. How pretty this would be peeking out from under a blazer this fall, too.
*Linen Crespi Tee. It has been a long time since I've even looked at an embellished or graphic tee, but I have to say that the print on this one is quite interesting and cute. The only hesitation I have is the fact that it's 100% linen...need to see this one IRL for sure.
*Edie purse in Italian calf hair . {sigh}I really, really, really like this one...why oh why does it have to be priced so high? Fingers crossed it makes it to sale.

*Watercolor Floral Scarf. What a beautiful color combination and more than likely it's even prettier IRL.
*The Skinny Leather Belt is back with some new color the Bright Cobalt.
*No. 2 pencil skirt in double-serge wool. Oh what gorgeous shades of color on this one! I am currently waitlisted for the Viridian Green, but may have to consider picking up additional colors in the future, depending on how I feel about the quality and fit of the one I am waiting to receive.
*Leopard Tippi Sweater. I really hope this one doesn't disappoint IRL, as I think it would be a great option to pair with my Lolli Pants in Bright Dahlia, and nude Fiona Mid Heel pointy-toe pumps from Cole Haan.

*No. 2 pencil skirt in leopard. I have been looking for a leopard pencil skirt for awhile now after seeing this image of Giovanna Battaglia, as I would love to create an *inspired* version of my own to wear this fall. I hope the print and colors of the J.Crew skirt are really nice in person, as I am very particular when it comes to my animal prints.

*I am loving all the colors the Café Capri is offered in this time...especially the yacht blue and baked citron.
*Cabochon and pavé link bracelet. Pretty, pretty, pretty. Both it and the Stone Charm Necklace remind me of pieces that were offered back in 2008 with the debut of the Morocco Catalog.
*Albertus Swanepoel™ for J.Crew fedora. I bought this in the Camel Leopard last year and LOVE it! It has such a flattering silhouette and fit...always gets tons of compliments, too.

*Maisie Dress. This is just so adorable and I'm sure it will probably be longer on most of us than it is on the model. I love the Graphite color in the solid version of the dress, but my absolute favorite is the *Waterfloral version of the pretty and feminine. Another one I hope makes it to sale...fingers crossed again! :)
*The Velvet Schoolboy is back again this year in new colors, as the Poppy and Bristol Blue!
*Cashmere cable sweater is so cute. I love every color this one is being offered in.
*Puff-sleeve popover in French Blue. This one also comes in 3 additional colors of Black, White, and Vibrant Flame. This is a great little blouse to tuck into skirts and wide-leg trousers for a bit of an extra feminine-feel.

What are your thoughts on the New Arrivals at J.Crew? Are you excited to see fall pieces even though temps are soaring into the triple digits in a lot of places? What are your must-haves from this rollout? Please do share! :)

Have a lovely day! :)



  1. I really want a pencil skirt, but I need to work out what my size would be, either 00 or 0 - still waiting on them to get back to me. Love your choices.

  2. I love your picks! Here is another animal print pencil skirt that you might like if the J.Crew one doesn't work:
    It is currently on sale, with and add'l 25% off and free ship with code JULY2011.

  3. Thanks for stopping by ladies! :)

    laurie_miw: Thank you for the link! What a great deal on that skirt, too. :)

  4. I am so grateful to you for posting the whole catalogue since I didn't get one. I like seeing the outfits, not just the individual pieces.

    You have some great picks, FFM? I am also salivating over the leopard Edie bag but I can't bite at that price.

    My short list as of right now is the same leopard skirt you want, the wool cafe capris in yacht blue (my personal shopper says the wool is lightweight so they may be 3 season wear for me) and the boy shirt in stripe crepe de chime, although I'm not sure which color.

  5. I have and love the Hacking Jacket (am anxiously awaiting cooler temperatures so I can wear it!). I also ordered the Index Dress in red and the Double Serge Pencil in heather acorn from the new arrivals.

    My other must-haves are the Maisie Dress in green, the Puff-Sleeve Popover in vibrant red and the Cashmere Cable Sweater in camel and possibly one more colour if there is a good promo. I'm anxiously awaiting the Toronto store opening so I can try a few things on in person!

  6. My list is too long to leave the colors. Some of the dresses might be "must haves". I'd love to see more trousers-skinny and ankle pants are tough for me. I'm hourglass/pear shaped, so I need a full length pant 'cause the capris are adorable. Thanks for posting the catalog. I'm planning to stop into my store later this week once the roll out is in.

  7. I'm super impressed with this rollout...however the prices just seem to creep higher and higher. Ugh! Loving all the color and prints though...a nice change! I've felt the crew was getting a little blah before this!

  8. amazing picks. thanks for another lovely post. I hope you had an amazing weekend. Would love if you'd check out my latest post featuring pictures from my favorite little treat shop in Beverly Hills. Thanks love. xoxo

  9. Desert Flower: You are so very welcome! I'm glad I was able scan it for everyone to see, especially since there are so many who don't get one.

  10. Caitlin: The Heather Acorn pencil skirt is another one on my wishlist. Please report back about the color IRL if you get the chance! Love your must-haves, btw! We have very similar taste in J.Crew clothing. :)

  11. JulieStyles: Your comment about your list being too long to leave here made me smile. I know how you feel! There really are many, many nice pieces this rollout. Let's hope the quality is good and they don't disappoint IRL! :)

  12. Jenni: The prices do seem to creep higher with each new rollout, and sadly a lot of the quality seems to be decreasing with each new rollout, as well. Like you, I am loving all the prints and colors this time around. It's really nice to see the change. :)

  13. Fash Boulevard: Thank you and thanks for stopping by as well! I'll be stopping by to visit you soon! :)

  14. Great post, FFM! Loving the cashmere cable in heather camel, though I didn't love the price :( Oh well, sure seems like a wardrobe classic for years to come!
