Weekly Share: Other JCrew-like Retailers

This is the weekly "Other JCrew-like Retailers" post (similar to the "Off On A Tangent" posts), where we can share our finds from other retailers that have offerings similar to J.Crew (like Anthropologie, LE Canvas, Gap, BR, Talbots, Ann Taylor, and the like.)

If you have recently encountered items that are similar to J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Please feel free to share your story on almost any topic— including experiences with certain merchandise pieces, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.


  1. Madewell: New Promo-priced items added this week, plus 25% off & free shipping on orders of $125+ with code 4SPRING at checkout. Updated promo items list is here.

    1. My curiosity is piqued but for some reason I don't see it when I link up to your blog?

    2. bug pin, the link above should take you to my blog. Scroll down just a bit past the stock photos of J Crew items and you'll see the link. Hope that helps!
      If you still have trouble, you can email me, and I'll email you back the link. It's called Mint Bloom Strand, and I can't wait for mine to get here!

  6. I purchased the stretch colored jeans from C Wonder and found them to be of excellent quality. I ordered the "Pistachio" color and it's vibrant, but not neon. The material is substantial and comfortable because of the bit of stretch. Really happy about that purchase! One thing I did notice - I had to size down from my normal size.

  7. I have some codes I'd like to give to someone.

    $25 off $75 at Madewell, it says for first purchase only but it's worth a try.

    20% off $125 at jcrew factory, expires 3/31. I have two codes.

    Email me at musingsbyjacquelyn at cox dot net.
