J Crew New Arrivals Fitting Room Pics

Today I rushed to see the new Fall Arrivals at J Crew. Unfortunately, my store didn't get in a lot of the items I was hoping to find but there were some fun surprises.

Perfect Shirt in Leopard $78, Size 6. Okay, excuse the belt in this picture I was playing around with it and forgot to get a picture without it. I am not a lepard print person but J Crew always seems to find a way to so it well. This print is no exception.

Wool Cafe Capris in camel $118 I was hoping these would fit like the lollis and they do...whoo hoo. My stylist accidentally grabbed me a 6 instead of an 8 in these and I almost cried thinking I had to go a pant size up but luckily it was just a mix up....funny how we get so caught up on numbers isn't it? Anyways, these pics will show them a little tight because of that. These are the camel and I love them and want all the colors (well almost). They are unlined and light which is not typically what you think of with wool pants. I think they run TTS if not a little big.
Tippi Sweater $69.50 Size Medium. I don't know what to say except this sweater is a perfect wardrobe staple since it works with pants, skirts and jeans. The stylist grabbed me black (which I rarely wear) but the vibrant flame, viridian green and the heathered camel were my favorites. I found this to be TTS. You could size down  but I like the slightly slouchy fit.
No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Leopard, $118 Size 8. I would not have tried this skirt on if the amazing Cyndi at Fashion Valley hadn't pushed me. I love the fit of this skirt, the length is longer than recent J Crew pencil skirts and the fabric is so soft. The leopard print on the skirt is slightly lighter than the perfect shirt and the tippi sweater version.

Perfect Shirt in Medium Gingham $72 Size 6, artillery fatigue. This fabric is stretchier then my other perfect shirts so it has a little more give across the back which I like.
Stripe Boatneck Painter Tee $39.50. Love the fit and length of this tee. It is thinner and very soft , feels more like a fitted tissue tee. I am 5'9" with a long torso so if you are shorter it may not work as well.

Suede Hook Belt-On sale for $39.50 plus the current 40% off sale promo online (LOVEIT). This is a size Small. The medium was really big (see first picture). Fun little belt but it slips around a lot and you can't really adjust it.

Minnie pant in Stretch Twill $79.50, Size 8 Vibrant Flame. Love this color and the look of these pants. What I couldn't get comfortable with was my plump booty on full display. Even when I was a size 2, I still had bootie to spare. Maybe the matchstick cords will work a little better.

Featherknit Floral tank $39.50, Size M. I had this in a small as well but I like the relaxed fit of the Medium. I really like the flowy feel of this tank and I am planning to grab it in some solids as well. Great layering piece, tucked in or out.

Jackie Cardigan $62, Size M Laquer Yellow (?). I had just asked my stylist to grab any cardigan real quick and this is what I ended up with. I am assuming this must be the laquer yellow, it was much brighter then I thought it looked on the website.
Chambray Shirtdress $118-If this had been 6 inches longer I would have been happy but hello...short enough? It looks longer on the model. Also, the price is a little high but seeing it could be a "go to" dress for years you may want to splurge. For me it was a may be a sale pick...with leggings!
Here it is with leggings.....

I wish I had more to show you but most of what I was on the lookout for was not in the store ;( On the positive side, My purple Jardin skirt shipped Friday so I should have a review soon

Yippeee! Thanks so much for posting! I was dying to get there today, but couldn't, so I'm happy to see all your great pics. You look fabulous in all of them. Did you take any home? That leopard skirt looks perfect on you, and I want those camel capris as well.

Wow, everything looks fabulous! I'm hoping to get the leopard Tippi sweater. Thanks so much for posting the great pictures. Can't wait to get my hands on a catalog!

I like the Tippi & the leopard on you. You're looking great, in general. Are those the Minnies in the new bright red color?

You look fabulous in everything!! Especially that leopard skirt and the bright Minnie's. I tried those on months ago and just couldn't get over the legging like fit and how it just showed too much, but I'm now dying for a pair of orange pants.

I bought the Tippi sweater last month in bright dahlia and really like it. I can't resist that color. I definitely feel like a trip to the store is in order soon.

The Minnies look great on you! I'm really wanting a pair of bright orange-ish pants, but I know the Minnies won't work on me. The Leopard pencil skirt also looks fab on you...everything does! Thanks so much for the reviews. So happy to see you back posting again!

(ps...can't wait to hear/see what you think of the Jardin skirt!)

Debye, you look sooooooo good in all these things, but I have to agree that the flame Minnie's are Da Bomb. And I love that shirtdress! How's the sizing on that and what size is the one you tried? PERFECT on you!!!!

You look amazing in everything! Did you find the leopard shirt tts? Was it really thin like some perfect shirts of the past?
