Spending Those J. Crew Gift Cards!

J. Crew E-Gift Card via JCrew.com

The holidays are over and now it’s back to the grind. On the bright side, many of my holiday gifts included clothing and gift cards, and I’ve indulged a bit in post-holiday sales (additional 30% off sale items and J. Crew and 50% off at Banana Republic, how could I resist?) so I’m feelin’ a stylish start to the new year.

Armed with gift cards and an ambition to make the most of my 2013 wardrobe, I’ve hit a roadblock. Finding new things to purchase at J. Crew is never difficult, but whittling that shopping cart down to a reasonable amount is quite the task…

New to Crew featuring ‘Mediately Must-Haves

My most recent visit to J. Crew dot com was delightful. Out of the corner of my eye, scratch that, blatantly plastered across the center of the screen, I saw two beautiful, deeply emotional words…NEW ARRIVALS.

Here are my ‘mediately must-haves. We can call them “Martha’s Mediately Must-Haves”

Nickleby Bib Top

If you would answer yes to: Would you wear a little British boarding school uniform?

Then get excited because: “Our designers were inspired by ’60s-era English boarding school uniforms when creating this sweet popover.”

Silk Serenade Dress

I like the sound of it. I like the look of it. I am most edgy and most elegant. Therefore, I need it. Additionally, “the pebbled texture reflects light beautifully. Finished with an elastic waist for an easy fit, leaving an unstudied yet alluring impression.”


Ankle Stretch Toothpick Jean in White Denim

Do you want to look stylish and skinny as a toothpick? I’ve got the jeans for you!

New season, new reason…to love a fresh white jean.




Speaking of new seasons…summer (or spring break) is just around the corner, a very suitable time to buy a new suit. Of the swimming variety of course! Loving the new styles and colors, but this Solid Ruched Betty French Top in Bright Dahlia caught my eye!

My oh my I ‘mediately must have it!

You know the saying: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue? Well…we forgot something old! (As for something borrowed please consult your closest crew.a.holic’s closet.)

As for something old…How about the Medallion Lattice Top from a few seasons back?

$59.99 NWT on eBay.

(Cue eBay commercial song)

Enjoy the old, new, borrowed and Crew with these forward-thinking spring pieces.
