J. Crew is running a 40% off storewide sale for the first time ever (use code HOLIDAY at checkout), and it’s maybe too good to abstain from.  

There are a few exclusions, like the Signet Camera Bag and some collection items, but that list is short. The Rider Bag featured here, which is normally excluded, is eligible for the discount. My review of the bag can be found here.

I would recommend ordering a Double-Cloth Lady Day Coat with Thinsulate in a “classic” color like black, if you are looking for something timeless. Or you can follow in my footsteps and try to collect the Icon Trench in Wool-Cashmere in all colors. A more practical purchase may be to order the Resumé Dress (reviewed here) in a few colors, a decision that has few obvious downsides. 
 


Other styles to consider: Pleated Ponte Dress, Sailor Skirt in Double-serge Wool, Cambridge Cable Chunky Turtleneck Sweater, Edie Top in Stewart Plaid, Pencil Skirt in Pink Houndstooth, and Faux-Leather Pleated Mini Skirt.

As promised, I will be updating periodically with new sales, so check back for the most up-to-date information.

Happy shopping!
