Hello-Hello, happy Friday!
We have all manner of tidbits today, so we shall jump right in with a look at the new Angela Adams for J. Crew bags. The collection launched today.

The bags are made of recycled sailcloth, an outstanding and highly durable fabric perfect for a tote.
All bags shown above retail at $198 at J. Crew, they are also available online.
We have long been fond of this designer, below two of the bags on the Angela Adams site.

In other Crew news, we have previously chatted about the J. Crew launch on Net-a-Porter, that collection has debuted.

This post on Australia’s version of fashion site FabSugar has more.
“Get those Visas out peeps, because this is one preppy-chic label which is just too good to ignore.”
A reminder, this is from the Net-a-Porter collection available internationally; currently only one J. Crew item is seen on the upscale discounter’s US site.
Next, a quick look at swimwear from Strong Boalt, described by the fab team over at Refinery 29 as Palm Beach Preppy.

“The prepped-out, sexy, and summery shots are totally Lilly Pulitzer-meets-Vilbrequin-meets-Saturday’s Surf NYC, with a vintage, Cali-cool aesthetic that’s putting us in a mood for an uber strong gimlet. So guys, pack up an L.L. Bean tote: You know you’ll be rocking these to some Vampire Weekend tracks come Memorial Day weekend.”
And then there is this: the List of Preppy Baby Names. Now, call us crazy, but we are a tad stymied by some of the names selected for the list:
And those are from the list of Girls’ Names.
Yesterday we offered a lengthy listing of just some of the new merchandise we’ll be adding to our Lilly Pulitzer Stationery and Gift line, available mid-summer. One of the personalized items to be offered is an acrylic tray; below we show the version we shall be carrying in our Jonathan Adler Nifty Gifties collection.

The network is only introducing two new shows, Nikita and Hellcats (ahem); the latter is described as a cheerleading drama. Indeed.
