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. Anyone shopping the Madewell x Sezanne collection today? There's a few things I like: the leather mini skirt, the woven tote and the pullover sweater, to name a few.

    1. Although that skirt is 15 inches. That's a mini!

    2. I love the tote. The mid-rise jeans look like J. Crew's Matchsticks. I also liked that pullover sweater, the black blouse, the lace-up sandals. I'm going to admire them from afar, though, don't need any of it! I liked the striped dress too but it looks extremely short. Then I remembered that style never looks good on me anyway.

  5. Boden has a few Fall arrivals. MySuperluities blog has a Boden 20% off coupon in today's comment section of her post. I saw a few very nice items-----love actual dess/skirt lengths that aren't embarrassingly short almost all their pants, skirts and dresses are offered in petite, regular and ling lengths AND they always have the measurements and reviews readily available online. I'm seriously considering the Elena wrap dress and the Darcie pointed toe rose gold and tan leather flats that are gorgeous. They have some pants that resemble the cafe Capri pants, too.

    2. Love Boden, have been buying more and more from them as I buy less and less from J Crew. I bit on a few dresses and blouses on this newest rollout. Does anybody know if there is a good facebook group for buying/selling/trading tBoden clothes?

    3. cmg--thanks for the link love. I have been away a lot from the computer lately so I haven't had opportunities to get over here to JCA as much. :-/

      Alyssa--there are groups. Lou is part of one, I believe, the blogger from WhatLouWore365. But she may be part of a British one only. Hmm. Anyhow, I know they exist. I should probably join one since I have a lot of older Boden items to sell, but always forget to do that when I am actually on the computer. Maybe I can ask some of my readers if they know of any good ones the next time I write up a Boden Weekly Review Roundup.
