New JCrew Part 2
Here are some more pictures from the new catalog. There are some lovely pieces and color schemes- as usual! I did feel that the in store pieces were more interesting than many of the catalog items, so tomorrow's rollout is certain to be exciting. My initial impression is that it was the first July roll out of Fall merchandise that I have seen in ages that actually is perfectly transitional both in color and fabrication. Many of the pieces could be worn even in hot weather. I have always felt that many of my favorite retailers missed the mark by thrusting tartan and cashmere to be admired from a distance by sundress and sandal sporting shoppers. AJC on her awesome blog is posting her reviews of some of the more "covetable" (okay- I giggle when I see that) pieces that are save your coins worthy, but there are also some lighter weight blouses and pants that more wearable now. Shop with M posted her polyvore today of great end of last season buys in anticipation of fall, and that just underscores the message that some of the great summer buys today are still worthwhile to contemplate. Not only is it still ridiculously hot (here at least), but some of those fun pieces on sale today will be the anchor for our next spring and summer wardrobe. After all, I think it is the timelessness of Jcrew's styles that makes us fans.
