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. I bought the THE SIMPLE POUCH BELT BAG (Item #99105412780) from madewell. I originally ordered it on linen because the English saddle color wasn't available at the time. It's actually really cute! I can for my phone and keys and some misc things in there. Got a size small (dress size 4) and it's perfect. The linen color is pretty light and I'm worried about jeans rubbing off on it but it's not like you can flip the bag around. I just saw the English saddle pop up on the site and I ordered it. I'll see which one I prefer. Although for less than $40 each, maybe I'll keep them both?

  3. Hello JCAs! I shared a few similar alternatives to the J.Crew Bobbie Sundress (from 2008) in this post. I also shared a few for the J.Crew Portico Wrap Dress (also from 2008) in this post.😊

  4. Anthro is 50% off sale right now, but it's final sale.
