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.

  4. I really need that JCAs help tracking something down - sorry if this is the wrong thread, although I think my request will be non-J.Crew.

    I was excited to buy matching glitter flats for my flower girls/jr bridesmaids for my January wedding, and just found out while one 12 year old wears a girls size the other wears a womens 8! Flats for the girls at J.Crew aren't a problem, but they no longer have the glitter Lula (or similar online or in stores.) I asked at my local store and they said they had no idea if they'd be back for a holiday rollout.

    So (sorry this is soo long!) any recommendations on stores that might sell matching kids and womens shoes (specifically glitter or metallic flats?)

    Thanks so much in advance!

    1. Hi, I found some shoes at Boden that could work. They have a teen line called Johnnie b. and it carries women's sizes, and because it is meant to work as a sister line to mini Boden (for littler girls), they will often carry similar styled shoes. So while these aren't exact matches, they are pretty close:

      http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/Girls-1H-12yrs-Shoes-Boots/Shoes/39119-GLD/Girls-1H-12yrs-Gold-Glitter-Ballet-Flats.html?NavGroupID=11

      http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/Girls-8-16yrs-Shoes-Boots/Shoes/99042-GLD/Girls-8-16yrs-Gold-Glitter-Pointed-Ballet-Flats.html?NavGroupID=11

      There are other options all over the lines, including in the women's line, but these two choices are likely your closest match (unfortunately the Johnnie b gold glitter shoes are pointed and the mini Boden shoes are rounded).

      Hope that helps!

    2. Shannon, you might want to check out Boden. I'm not sure what color you need but I know I saw some glitter flats in their Johnnie B girls section (8-16 yr olds) that go up to a women's 8 and beyond.

    3. Also, I have found that mini Boden shoes run rather large, since I have a pair of size 39 flats from them (back when they carried that size in their line) and I wear a 9.5 US. The 39 is meant to fit a size 8.5 foot, btw. It is very likely the flower girl with a size 8 foot could very well fit into the glitter flat size 37 in the mini Boden line.

    4. You are all wonderful life-savers! Ordered the Johnnie B glitter flats (pointed toe) in an assortment of sizes that I think will work - although I did order 10 pairs for 4 girls to try on, so hopefully something with work! I would never have thought of Boden and you saved the day!! Thank you!!

  5. Review of some Anthro cardis HERE

    Review of some Anthro jeans HERE.

    Also recently purchased Repetto Cendrillon ballerina flats at a crazy discounted price and am shocked at how comfortable they are. Will post a more in-depth review soon, but basically, if you can get them on sale, they are miles (pun intended!) better than Tory Burch or J. Crew flats...

  6. Back at the computer, but time is short, so I will be brief.

    Boden started their mid-season sale on Sunday, quite a bit on sale from 20-40% off. I wrote a very quick post here on the sale. Lots is getting snapped up from the selection of sale items, but popbacks and restocks have occurred nearly daily since the sale started, so if you don't see something you want now, check back later. :)

  8. Banana Republic has a very similar vest to the beloved Excursion Herringbone. I did not try it on so can't comment on fit. It was $98. BR seems to have a number of promos going on though.
