^ Bump!

I know there's a SS thread on J. Crew, BUT, this thread needs to come alive again! Has anybody bought any J. Crew items lately?

I just recently "discovered" J. Crew. Knew the brand, but always labeled it as 'mom wear'. Oh man was I wrong!

I found the most perfect cigarette pants there and their cashmere is wonderful. I didn't buy anything in store, because I just couldn't decide. And even though I put myself on a shopping ban, there are some items that I would really love to pick up.

And from reading this thread I can now save 15% if they still honor the student discount that is.

Meg do you remember if they included duty in the final price or did you have to pay when it arrived?

Some of the items I'm currently lusting after...

Sold out, but I'm hoping they'll restock.


I'm envisioning these to be almost a nude/peach shade.


These haven't been getting great reviews, but I personally love them.
I think they work better on slender frames.

^ Beautiful, Party Vixen. And that bracelet... definitely one of the many pieces of jewelry I am really lusting over this season.

J. Crew has really improved over the years... a while ago it would have been fair to label J. Crew as "mom wear."

Oh my, I had no idea! Love the orange with white. But will people purchase this luggage at nearly $2k a piece?

That luggage is gorgeous. But those prices are insane!

I find J Crew's prices really reasonable but some of the other brands they carry are way out of my price range.

Party Vixen - yes, they include provincial taxes and duty in the final price you pay online. They do some interesting luggage collabs - the stuff with globetrotter is gorgeous. There are lots of things I want right now but I probably won't get anything until my mum heads to Florida so I don't have to pay Cdn duty and taxes. The delphina dress (I think that's the name) that is full length and the oat color with the pink painter's stripe running down the middle is so gorg

I was in the store yesterday, oooh-ing and aw-ing by myself... I really feel like I'm at my style home when I'm in there. The fiance waited outside patiently... I of course didn't buy anything (had they had an additional percentage off clearance, it would have been a different story), but definitely added MORE to my virtual wish list. I saw a long, peach-colored dress for $98... not too bad, really... so pretty.

And the jewelry. Don't even get me started! I really wish I could find a special piece to wear with my wedding dress, but most of it is just a bit too over-the-top or larger than what I'm looking for... there was an antique-gold necklace with huge pink stones that look fantastic... would be perfect if it was 2x smaller, I'd say.

their ballet flats are very comfy, but stretch a lot.

^ It's about time! Can't believe it's taken them so long to expand... I wonder why?

About time! Would love for them to open a store in Toronto. Although my bank account may disagree :p.
