Sorry about the glare but I could not find a good angle to take better picture. I think this is a new pencil skirt in crimson maple. Very pretty color that is quite tempting. I have a persimmon skirt from I think 2009 but this one is more of watermelon red with some pink undertones pink, not the J.Crew's favorite color, persimmon/modern red/flame (aka orange).
Fuchsia/berry pink Majesty Peacoat, yummy.If I was looking for a bright coat this could be an option. I was not crazy about the gold buttons though. I don't mind them on my navy Majesty Peacoat but they seemed a bit jarring with pink. I like the puffer vest too but I never know when to wear them.
They must have been reading Dani's color story posts because there is a lot of pink with brown and camel here. The pants are actually very nice, 100% wool and fully lined in poly. They are modern version of grandpa pants with modern slim cut but full length, thank you!
Classic fall color combination in shades of Autumn leaves, crimson and golden yellow grounded by some neutral jeans, very eye pleasing, even if slightly predictable.
New pencil skirt. This is the one I missed photographing a while ago.
The sweaters were already available but the skirts were only on mannequins. Interesting to see a bold graphic skirt for the fall/winter.
Not sure how much you can actually see here as the glare was horrible but it is a new burgundy and blue sweater embelished all over with some mettalic squares.
Of course, since I was in the store, I took several items to the fitting room. I tried on French hen sweater, Look#16 sweater from Fall 2012 Lookbook, brown check wool trousers displayed above, couple of new pencil skirts and much more.
I also stopped by Madewell and tried on Flowersketch Peplum top.
I will have reviews of all these items coming up.
That's all folks!
What do you think of the new arrivals?
Do you like J.Crew color stories?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
