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 Embroidered Denim Tank from Gap is a beautiful piece, so much detail, and it comes in Tall sizes. It was 40% off during their F&F sale and I grabbed it as I knew it would sell out. I'm 5'9" and the Tall M was great, I needed the extra length.

  2. Can't recall if I mentioned this last week, but the Seamed Denim Dress from Banana is a winner, great cut and fabric, and not nearly as short as shown on the model. It's on sale for $77 right now, I think it's a great buy.

  3. Yesterday, I hit Macy's and they are literally giving stuff away! With every purchase you receive instant store money! I bought 2 clearance purses one Michael Kors and one Ralph Lauren, got them cheap then the gal gives me $35.00 in store money! I was walking by jewelry and I about fainted! I've been lusting for some Kate Spade earrings and I had just seen them over at Nordstrom. I decided to think on them a little longer and there they were at Macy's! They were $98.00 which I would have paid at Nordstom...but at Macy's I got $35.00 bucks off from my instant store money AND an additional 20% due to some store sale thing. DANG! Then that sales gal gave me more instant store money that I used on two pairs of shoes by Betsy Johnson. They are exactly like the J.Crew knotted block heal sandals but they have a back on the heal and an ankle strap. They came in navy and white gingham and a gorgeous orange, hot pink silk floral. I got them for about $38.00 each after all the sales!! They are adorable! ...and yep, I got more instant money and bought a super cute Ralph Lauren denim shift dress. I got another instant money card, but by then I was exhausted...hee!

    1. Sounds amazing! Nothing like some Betsey Johnson shoes to brighten up an outfit! My favs, Betseyville pumps with little chocolate bars on them, were also a highly discounted Macy's purchase.

    2. Those sound adorable! I think these are my first Betsy shoes. Can't wait to wear them...when it's stops raining!

    3. Same here, rain, rain, go away! Finally put my winter boots away but have had to wear rain boots all week! Now I need to find an excuse to wear those Betsey Johnson shoes....I haven't worn them in years.
