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. The good/bad news is that none of my recent Boden dress purchases fit, so I sent them all back. All we're the same size (10L) as the two dresses I bought and loved in November, but two were too small and one was too big, so much for consistent sizing! As much as I would have been happy to have any of them if they'd fit, I'm also looking forward to the large credit coming on my credit card.

    1. p.s. The rejected dresses were the Pippa Tunic Dress in Vintage Denim (too loose/shapeless in front), the Denim Dress (way too tight, especially for a dress that snaps up the front! A shame as the fabric was lovely and soft), and the Summer Lace Dress (too tight, could barely move my arms).

  2. I have a love/hate relationship with Boden - I've not been able to nail down my size and their sometimes slow shipping doesn't entice me to bother with ordering multiple sizes. However, I ordered the red Pointed Slipper Flats when they had an additional % off sale a week or so ago, and wow - they are nice. Comfortable right out of the box, beautiful color, can't wait to wear them.
