J. Crew - July (III)

I have a few photos from a couple of trips I took to the J. Crew store lately. The first one I am showing here is that of the Textured Eyelet Jacquard Dress (size 6, black). Usually I don't favour A-line dresses, but I liked the way this one looked on me. It's a cotton/nylon mix and is machine washable. The dress is the larger of the two dress sizes I wear at J. Crew.

Next I tried on the Vintage Scarf Dress (size 4) we saw earlier in the sneak previews. The dress is made of a beautiful silk and it is lined. Unfortunately it is a bit short on me at 5'6". The size is the smaller of my two dress sizes at J. Crew.

The shoes I am wearing above are the Elsie Suede D'Orsay Pumps (size 8, ornamental red). They fit TTS and are extremely comfortable for a high-heeled pump. You may have already seen the version in black here before (scroll down).

Lastly, another pair of shoes I really liked seeing in the previews: the Gemma Leopard Flats (size 8). The upper part is a cotton/poly fabric, while the lining and the sole are leather. I loved the fit and the look of these shoes a lot.

That's all for now, but I have a few more photos to show you soon. 
Hope you are having a great weekend. We celebrated rain yesterday, and hopefully again tomorrow). I  never thought I would have said anything like this before, given that it usually rains about 250 days a year around these parts! It has been extremely dry and water restrictions are still in effect, so let's hope we get a reprieve from Mother Nature.

J. Crew - New Arrivals Picks

Yesterday I noticed the new arrivlas on the J. Crew website and, as usual, I have to pick my favourites. First, I went straight to the Skirts section to check some pencil skirts. The Collection Pencil Skirt in Autumn Floral is already calling my name. It is made from the beautiful silk/wool fabric that J. Crew uses in their skirts and which feels great to the touch.

Peyton Bag reminds me a bit of the Brompton bags from a few years ago. I really love the red:

Gemma Leopard Flats look gorgeous and I was told our stores will be receiving these beauties.

More shoes in kitty print, the Collection Colette Calf Hair D'Orsay Kitten Heels:

Fall is far away at this point, but I couldn't help noticing the Shiny Downtown Puffer Jacket, which comes in four (4) beautiful colours:

And lastly, the Textured Eyelet Jacquard Dress. It comes in Petite and Tall sizes as well. I tried on the black on the weekend and it was a pleasant surprise:

I have a few more favourites but I will stop here. How about you? What did you like in this collection? Please share!

Thanks for dropping by, and have a great rest of the week!
