There are lots of markdowns at J. Crew and a good number of things moving to final sale. We'll continue to see more of this trends as we head towards July. Can you believe that the first wave of fall merchandise will be out in a month?
I'm so glad I was able to try on some jewelry last nite so you can see it in-person. If it's not available online, perhaps the photos will help you decide if you want to hunt some of the pieces down in-store.
Painted flower bracelet (C9493, $78) - now $59.99. The color is white. Pretty design. The flowers are so interesting. They feel like they're going to be a little spongy, but they're not.
I cannot be bothered with the foolishness of the string closure. I wish they'd stuck to a traditional jump ring closure.
I hate the friendship bracelet closure. It makes it difficult to fasten. Sidethunmb because that's a personal preference. Other than that,the bracelet is pretty.
Floral wreath necklace (C9421, $158) - now $119.99. I've been wanting to try this on since it came out. The texture of the flowers is interesting. They feel like smooth, dry ceramic. Not in a bad way. The feeling isn't slick like shiny, ceramic bangles. I like the rhinestones in the center of the flowers. The off-center placement of the one in the right-hand side of the pic doesn't bother me. The asymmetry gives the necklace interest. I also like the cloudy, white rhinestones. I did not like the yarn balls. They're made of cloth and can attract dirt and stains.
Another unique design from J. Crew. It's a beautiful necklace. The dirt attracting yarn balls were a deal breaker for me.
Beaded blossom necklace (C9432, $110) - now $84.99.
I liked the idea of this more online than when I saw it in-person. It's a mix of seed beads and yarn. It sits high on the neck. I found it to be a bit costume-y. However, I owned a similar necklace a few years ago. I think it was mostly black. It was a fun, summer piece. I didn't get the feeling on this one, though. If you also have textural issues, you might not like it. That yarn.
I can't get into the yarn design, but that's a personal preference. The number one thing I love is that the colors will go with J. Crew clothing; past, present and future. And the touch of rhinestones is nice.
These are the same yarn balls that are in the floral wreath necklace above. See how they can get dirty easily? I"m not sure what this necklace is doing. It looks very industrial. Not a bad thing. Just not my style.
Not a personal like for me. I like the bright orange, though, and love how it goes with my J. Crew blouse from a few years ago.
Garden party necklace (C9493, $150) - now $109.99.
This was released earlier in the year. It's my first time seeing it up-close. The design reminds me of a few necklaces released over the past couple years. Names escape me. Basically, you might already have something similar. That's how I felt when I tried it on. There are lot of rhinestones. Some in-between the flowers and some inside the flowers.
I liked it on. I did wish it sat a little lower, but that can be fixed with a necklace extender.
Thumbsup. It echoes a couple past designs, so check your collection before purchasing.
Tortoise chandelier earrrings (C9510, $85) - now $64.99. I didn't try them on because weird. I held them up and they're beautiful. I agree w/online reviewers that they're heavy. However, I differ on why. The pieces that make up the design aren't too heavy for the materials. I think they kept it as physically light as they could. It's the hook that's weak. It's too dainty to support the design. They should've used a stud as the base and supported it with an earring backing that has the plastic circle around it. Beautiful earrings, though. Thumbsup.
Linked bangles bracelet (C9013, $88) - now $64.99. Color choices are gold and silver. Each bracelet has a hinge. I found it to just fit my wrists, which are medium. If you have small wrists, there will be more room. In that case, you might be able to position the bracelets higher up on your arm or further apart to show off the chain. I preferred the silver over the gold. It's very Fifty Shades. Plus -- I'll be honest -- with all the things going on the United States today, some people are going to see shackles.
