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. Banana republic has been offering pretty pieces, so has Loft. I was able to grab an eyelet skirt for less than $40 and some nice shorts at Loft; while am still after the floral black and white skirt at BR! Nice job BR!

  2. Hey, all!

    Boden has had a mid-season sale on for a little bit now, but they just recently added the "extra %" off to their clearance and CURRENT season sale items. They have never had an extra % off during the regular season on regular season sale items, so this is a change (and welcome, lol). You would need to go to the shopping bag page and enter the code 5V6G in the code box to receive the extra 15% off. It won't work on anything still full-priced (most of the summer new arrivals).

    I wrote more about this at the blog,

  4. Just to chime in here on Banana Republic. They are seriously KILLING it with their pieces lately. I was in NYC last week and went to their Flagship at Rockefeller Center. First off, the whole store was 40% off. They have consistently good discounts even for New Arrivals. I walked out with some gorgeous work clothes, mostly. Beautiful leather pencil skirt, great poplin, button up crop top (age appropriate if you are wanting to try the crop look but are not a millennial!), a great form fitting, interesting patterned swing dress and a great mixed media leather/ boucle baseball style jacket. LOVED everything and especially loved the quality and the prices. Awesome, fun shoe collection -- especially their jewel-toned suede pumps. Check out the BR new collection when you can. Marissa Webb -- you are doing a great job, girl. J. Crew misses you!

  5. BR has been offering incredible knits lately, both in fabric and in flattery (to women's figure). I don't know how they do that. But I am smitten and it's a serious threat to both JC and Madewell.

  6. Received today the Sleeveless Poplin Dress from Everlane. Really loved the style and simplicity of the dress. The seaming was perfect and it had pockets which I love. But I ordered an XS, I am usually a 4 at J Crew and it was too large for me. Plus it had the dreaded, too large armholes and so it is going back. I did get the Box Cut Tee, since I am usually an XS at Everlane. I did order this in a XXS, it is short but that is fine with me and sizing down made it more fitted which was perfect.
