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. Crabtree & Evelyn has soaps, shower gels, body lotions and hand lotions on sale for 60% off and free shipping. I got some for both me and my mother. We love the richness but don't usually splurge so this was a great treat.

  2. Also, Anthropologie in Short Hills Mall is having a popup shop this Saturday 12/01 from 12-4 which they describe as having "local makers and 'tis the season sips and snacks".

  3. Loved the clothes at Brooks Brothers, especially the Red Fleece line. Everything this 100 percent wool, fully lined, good price points.

    1. I am eyeing some items up there as well. I usually buy one or two pieces a year once they go on sale after the holidays.

    2. I walked by the store on Black Friday and saw a Stewart tartan shirtdress in the window that made me stop in my tracks. I was too tired to go in at the time but now I wish I had... it was really cute.

  4. I don’t know if this will help but my husband and I just returned from his home town of Paris to visit family and to spend Thanksgiving there. It dawned on me that there are two places I shop on a regular basis when I’m there and thought I would share —City Pharma on thé corners of Rue Bonaparte and Rue du Four. It’s a Mecca of skincare and beauty discounts! The prices on French Beauty brands are crazy!!!!
    The other shop that’s a must-do is Sophie Sacs on Rue de Rennes. It’s a tiny boutique filled wall-to-wall of great leather bags at great prices ( my favorite non-brand brand Nat et Nin is sold at discount there). Seriously—if you are not into designer luxe brand purses but want a great bag you should check this place out!
    That’s it! I don’t buy clothes there because I stick to J. Crew! Have a great day!
