J.Crew Updates Website with New Arrivals!


"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know that J.Crew had an update to its website (click here to view online).

There are some new arrivals for men (click here) & women (click here). {wahoo!} It looks like Crewcuts (click here) has been updated, as did the J.Crew Collection (click here).

The March catalog (click here to view) is still up. However, the latest APRIL catalog is not. As mentioned by several JCAs, J.Crew posted several images of the newest catalog over at Pinterest (click here to view).

Even better! It looks like J.Crew is offering 25% on all orders with promo code HEYSPRING. Plus, they are running 30% off everything for cardmembers (no min! both online and in stores!) with promo code CARDLOVE. This offer expires March 25, 2014. The fine print includes:

In-store discounts automatically taken at the register. Limit one promotional code per order. Offers valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms are subject to change. 
After checking the new arrivals, here are my top two picks:

* Thanks to J.Crew, I am into baseball caps. So of course I spied the Eyelet baseball cap (item A4331; $39.50), which is adorable for Spring and Summer. 

* The Stretch eyelet dress (item A2982; $158.00) is such a lovely dress for those warm-weather days. Looks super comfortable, yet dressy, at the same time. Just not feeling that starting out price point. Ouch!

With my top two picks in mind... I am once again kind of "meh" with the overall April roll-out. I am left to wonder where all the cute, cotton dresses under $100, are? Where are all the cute skirts? Where are the dresses *and* skirts that are knee length?!? (Some of us JCAs would like to bend over without flashing a crowd. Seriously.) Here is to hoping Summer has a little bit more for me.

While I am questioning some things, I have to ask about the styling of the Point Sur slim stacker Japanese selvedge jean in klutey wash (item A3614; $258.00). According to the description: "extra-long inseam... You're gonna want to cuff it to show off the premium selvedge." Is this the new trend now? I only have seen Sarah Jessica Parker rocking this look for what seems like ages. But I am not sure about it. Thoughts?

What items are you most excited about and why? Which items are you surprised (or not surprised) to see? Which items did you hope would be included? Were you expecting a bigger roll-out? Also, did you receive the latest catalog? :)
