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. Loft is having a flash sale until 10 am this morning (October 1). The code I got was for 50% off full price merchandise with 'LUCKY50'.

  2. Lots of J.Crew-like items in this post. Included this week are alternatives for the boyfriend fatigue jacket, frenchie sweater, silk boy shirt in heart throb, and excursion quilted vest in herringbone, just to name a few.

  3. Oh, so much going on at Boden!

    1. Tonight and for the remainder of tomorrow, they are offering 25% off all dresses and tops. I wrote more here at this blog post:

    2. Boden also has the spring 2015 preview up, which I wrote more on here. Eventually I will do a picks post from the items, hopefully by next week.

    3. Starting next Monday, they are offering 40% off selected autumn/fall 2014 items. No idea which ones, but this kind of sale happens towards the end of the season when they aren't quite ready to move things to clearance.

    4. I was fortunate enough to be able to offer a $125 giveaway from Boden c/o Boden, so definitely enter the giveaway if you would like. That is here at this blog post:

    That giveaway ends midnight on Friday, October 3, btw.

  4. Bloomingdales is having their 20% off Friends & Family sale through 10/5 with free shipping on all orders. They have Vans slip-ons eligible for the promotion, including the perforated white leather and silver metallic, and some styles in sizes smaller than mens 4.5/womens 6. I ordered the silver snakeskin because it seems like it would be a versatile print.

  5. Madewell is offering an extra 20% off select dresses and shoes until tomorrow. More details in this post. :)

  6. Old Navy - Check out these sueded pumps. The color I tried is gorgeous.
