J.Crew is offering a sneak peek of upcoming May arrivals for "cardmembers" only. I say cardmembers in quotes because I got this e-mail at two accounts: one that is associated with my J.Crew card, and one that is not (although more and more, I'm thinking maybe the second was at some point, and never updated). Either way, there are 4 items featured in this promotion:
- Metallic-Leather Minaudiere (item #14666) for $98. Described as: Vintage-inspired and so ladylike, in brilliant metallic leather with an Old-English brass-finish chain (just tuck it away to use as a clutch). Metal-frame closure with glass jewel top. Interior back-wall patch pocket. Cotton sateen lining. Import. 7 1/2" handle drop. 3 3/4"H x 7 5/8"W, opens to 2 3/4"D.
- Pearl-Cluster Necklace (item #14503) for $125. This doesn't seem to be new.
- Ribboned-Pearl Necklace (item #17763) for $55. Unsure if this is new. Described as: Our designer interlaced rayon grosgrain ribbon throughout this necklace—a lovely complement to its 14K gold-plated hand-assembled brass chain and lustrous glass pearls. 24" of beading and 18" of ribbon on each side. Ribbon-tie closure. Import. Full necklace length: 60". Catalog/jcrew.com only.
