J. Crew‘s sale section just got a big refresher and everything is an extra 50% off with code GOTIME. Please note that most items are rendered final sale with the code, so take that into consideration before you check out.
The Signet Flap Bag that I reviewed here is now on super sale in two colors. A few more picks: Ribbed Scarf in Everyday Cashmere, Oversized Plaid Scarf, Ribbed Beanie with Striped Faux-Fur Pom-Pom, Cable-Knit Scarf, Button Boatneck Sweater, and Faux-Shearling Poncho (ordered!).
I reviewed J. Crew’s Signet Bag last fall here, and want to share some comparison photos of it with the new Signet Flap Bag (which J. Crew advertises as Signet 2.0).
|Left: Signet Flap Bag with Printed Strap in Italian Leather in “Sun” || Right: Signet Bag in Italian Leather in “Dark Peony”|
These two styles are similar in numerous ways: in dimension (the Signet measures 6-1/8″T x 8-3/8″ W while the Signet Flap measures 6″T x 8-3/4″ W); in material (both are constructed from the same supple napa leather); in design (one main compartment with one slip pocket and one zippered pocket on either interior wall; one slip pocket in the back); and in detail (same hardware and key fob and lock).
The biggest/only noticeable difference between the two is the addition of a flap on the Signet Flap, which protects the main compartment and allows for a front slip pocket.
Both of these bags are perfect for hands-free activities like shopping and sightseeing. They hold a reasonable amount of items that you might need for shorter outings. I generally throw my my phone, glasses and sunglasses, keys, a small cosmetics pouch, and a full-sized wallet into the Signet.
J. Crew also sells accessories for these bags, like coin purses, pom-poms, and the striped detachable straps that I picked up some time ago.
J. Crew is currently running a 30% off sale (use code SHOPFAST at checkout). Shipping is also free on all orders today.
I ordered the 2007 Italian Stadium-Cloth Wool Toggle Coat, which to my surprise is already on sale in all four colors. I missed it during its original release so am excited it’s been brought back with updates.
More picks: Academy Loafers in Leather, Sweater with Ruffle Sleeves, Gingham car coat, The 2008 Andover Peacoat in Italian Wool, Gingham One-Shoulder Ruffle Top, Button-Front Puff-Sleeve Top, Lady Jacket with Fringe Hem, Tie-Waist Short with Bees, and Field Trench Coat.
