Here are some more of the new arrivals I was able to check out in person recently. First is the Collection Pencil Skirt in Electric Plaid. When this skirt first arrived I didn't read the description on the website, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this was silk, and not a tweed knit. The colours are bright, but not as bright as they appear on the website, in my opinion. This skirt also has an elastic waist, which made it more comfortable to wear. I am wearing my usual size 2 in pencil skirts at J. Crew.

Next was the Sandwashed Silk Tee in size 2 and 'sweet fuchsia.' This is my regular size in tops at JC, but was too narrow for me across the chest. The bottom part of the tee fitted large. It's unfortunate, since I liked the fabric on this - it is sturdy and would have been a perfect transition top, but I think it would look good on a pear-shaped lady. Here's also a detail of the side seam in the second photo.

Patent Janey Flats (similar here, here, here)
The Janey shoes arrived in our store a week or so ago. Here are the Collection Calf Hair Janey Flats size 8 1/2, or half size larger than my regular shoe size. I grabbed these off the display to try on. They fit slightly large on me. I am not a fan of the gold heel, but that's just me.
In comparison, size 8 Patent Janey Flats didn't feel as comfortable as the calf hair ones. These fitted me the same as the Viv flats I tried on before.
And finally, the much-talked about Collection Jeweled-Collar Sweater size S. It appears it is sold out online, but I have seen plenty in the store. Since it's still warm here, they are not selling much. The yarn is a mix of wool/alpaca wool, expect some itchiness. It didn't bother me, but then I am not sensitive to wool. Loved this sweater a lot. If you liked the herringbone, you might also like the Excursion Quilted Vest in Herringbone I reviewed here before. The pants are the new Cafe Capri in Herringbone and I will review in a future post.
And here's some store inspiration, since I love pink. Of course I cannot wear the skirt since it's too short, but I am sure a young gal would. One of the petite SAs was wearing this skirt and looked great on her.
That's all for now. Yesterday family and I visited friends in Seattle and stopped downtown for lunch, sightseeing and a bit of shopping, so I have more J. Crew to show you.
The LOVEIT 30% off sale items is still valid until midnight tonight. Several items I reviewed quite recently seem to be on sale already.
Have a lovely Thursday, everyone!
