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. Target - I reviewed a few toys I got for Mini G's birthday. Might be helpful given that Christmas is told to me by the aisles of the 99c store I was in yesterday. Yes, Christmas decor! Someone else mentioned that a Williams Sonoma had Christmas decor in-store already. Thanksgiving is crying.

  2. Anyone else having trouble viewing items on Gap, BR & ON?

  3. I bought the skinny mini zip ankle pants from Gap and like them better than the J.Crew variety because they are longer in the tall size--actually hit me at low ankle so can wear in the winter with socks and ankle books without looking weird. Quality also seems very nice (only washed twice so far) and fabric and finishing is surprisingly good for Gap.

  4. I've shared numerous J.Crew-like items in this post. Included this week are alternatives for the Endless shirt in stripe, Lady day coat, Jeweled-collar boy blouse, and Golden tassel necklace, just to name a few. :)

  5. I am sure that I am late on this account but there is a nice (mini-)article on Marissa Webb in the September Marie Claire.

  6. Nars - I tried on a very pretty shade called Sixties Fan in this post.

    1. ...uh that would be shade of lipstick and I tried it at Sephora.

  7. Ann Taylor - A few reviews. FALLFLASH for up to 50% off your order ends tonite.
