J.Crew New Arrivals & Love Lace

J.Crew February 2013 Style Guide

I received my J.Crew style guide on yesterday and I was excited to learn (thanks to JCA) that they had updated the website this morning with some new arrivals. Looking through the latest catalog has made me very excited for spring.

Here are some things that caught my eye:


Sera top in traced medallion (item 65235)  – Loving the ‘medallion’ print.
Postage stamp sailor mini (item 70676) – Adoring this nautical skirt in red with gold buttons.
Crewcuts girls’ organdy amore dress (item 40557) – A heart print dress. Need I say more? I was surprised to find no womens’ equivalent.
Mini medallion tie-neck dress (item 31427) – Pleats, a beautiful wine red color and an eye catching print.
Noir tweed dress (item 21691) – This looks like a great way to start off my ‘tweed’ collection. I’m currently tweedless.
Pleated dress in Super 120s (item 64958) – Feminine in peach.

Shoes  & Bags

Etta cap toe leather pumps (item 98530) – Navy. Chunky heels. Love.
Collection Contessa snakeskin-bow pumps (item 64788) – I am head over heels for this pump in black with a fetching white bow.
Collection classic snakeskin ballet flats (item 42002) – The ‘ivory’ color is a the perfect neutral.

Colorblock Tartine satchel (item 53166) – A bold bag with clean lines. It’s not nearly as awesome as this bag I missed out on but it’s a close contender.


Shoe sketch scarf (item 35067) – I have a weakness for sketch prints. This one is so feminine.
Pastel and neon statement necklace (item 56168) – Just plain awesome.
Translucent stone bracelet (item 95969) – Minty must have.
Crystal embroidered bib necklace (item 35403) – This statement necklace looked gorgeous in the stock image for the Carenna gown (see link below).

Wedding Whites – I need to start dress shopping and these seemed like a decent start.

Percy gown (item 47605)
Carenna gown (item 47555)
Corliss gown (item 47534)

J.Crew is currently offering free shipping with no minimum but I’m holding onto my spring rewards card and eagerly anticipating their next promotion.

I also received this Ann Taylor Factory lace top in the mail today. I fell in love with the top when I first saw it on Annie. She even helped me score this top in XS Petite for $24.99 with free shipping (see it on her here and here). Thanks Annie!

AT Factory Lace top (style 285714 color code 5052) – purchased in sz XS Petite

The scalloped lace is so pretty (I purposely stood directly under the recessed light to take this picture) and this top has the best liner that
I’ve ever come across. The lining isn’t see through, it’s not too low and
it’s sewn in so that it won’t move around and expose your bra

    Love the prints for spring! I'd have to avoid those style guides and catalogues though as they are proving to be very dangerous for my bank account.Abihttp://thebelatedbloomer.blogspot.comtwitter and instagram: @BelatedBloomer

    I'm loving so many of the new arrivals! Great picks Jess! I have my eye on the bow pumps and so many other things. We are going to be in trouble! The lace top looks perfect on you. I'm so happy you got it. We can thank my hubs for dragging me all the way out near the outlets that day. Lol

    I ignore fashion magazines the way you ignore these style guides. 🙂 I used to buy so many beauty products that never worked out. ha

    Thanks Mary Irene! That's so sweet of you to say. :)I hope I see some of these items in stores. Sometimes it looks different or fits different in real life and I can begrudgingly cross another item off my list.

    Thanks Celena! You should call an AT Factory in store and give them the style and color I provided above. They can look it up in their systems and ship it to you.

    lol… One of these years I should try to shop at one retailer exclusively and see if that saves me more money. I've always been curious if it pays to be loyal.
