J.Crew Updates Website with New Arrivals!

 "Thanks!" to many of you, including JCREWGAL (in this post), and Federal Agent Fashionista (in this post), 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, but not the J.Crew Collection (click here).

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

Some things important to note:
  1. J.Crew is still offering 25% off select regular merchandise with promotional code PACKME. This offer expires May 24, 2014. They just included an extra 30% off sale styles with this code too. Expires May 24th as well. This is an example where the promotion gets an upgrade... yey!
  2. Reviews are appearing and disappearing on the website. J.Crew seems to still be tinkering with the back end... good luck with that. 
I noticed that all the things I am interested in fall under the "classic crew" category. My top picks include:
I am loving the Crab top (item A5362), it is so cute with the crab print on the side, visible from the front and back. I am not loving the $98 price tag for the poly top. See you little guy on sale in a couple weeks. ;)

The Eyelet Stripe Dress (item A6588; $148.00) is a nice nod to the sundresses J.Crew typically offers during Summer time. Stripes and an eyelet pattern? Sold!

I think the Linen Embroidered Crab Sweater (item A5243; $79.50) is my favorite item from this rollout. I really like the graphic of the grab, woven into the sweater. Did you catch the heart in the middle? Cute! What I am worried about: "slim arms and an open body". I might be stuck between tight arms/true fit body or true fit arms/loose body. I will have to try on in-person now.

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? :)
