COPYCATS & STEALS

Here's the deal. 
Other than Friday's Fancies, I clearly don't do fashion focused posts. I leave that to the pros. I love clothes, don't get me, but I am pretty sure I would be the most awkward person alive posing for outfit posts. Who knows, maybe we'll get there someday. One thing I am good at is finding a good deal, which is clearly equally as glamorous. Here's some copycat great deal steals I've found lately:
----------------------------
I'm sure you've seen the cashmere collection dot sweater from J.Crew. It's been on everyone's dang blog lately. They're all gorgeous, and also $268. Ouch. If you're looking for a [much] more affordable version, stick with these Old Navy dotted pretties. $25! No, they aren't cashmere, but if you're just feelin' like jumping on the polka dot trend for a short time, this is an affordable way to do it. 

In case you don't sense a theme here, I love just about everything J.Crew creates. Just ask Michael- I go in the store and grab just about everything squealing like a child about how pretty everything is. J.Crew nails their dresses, unfortunately most are $100+, so not all are within my budget. Dorothy Perkins is a great place to find dresses with a J.Crew vibe for a fraction of the price! Steal of the year? By far the Dororthy Perkins wide stripe dress for $12. $12!!!!!!!

  2. I might have to go to Old Navy and get a polka dot sweater! I've been seeing a lot of people put a chambray shirt underneath. I think I need to jump on this trend ASAP!

  3. I love Dorothy Perkins! However... I've had the WORST time trying to figure out my size with them! I've had to return the same dress twice. I'm usually a 2 but I couldn't even zip it up... So I tried a 4... I could zip it up, but I had a hard time breathing, so I ended up with a 6. Other than the sizing issues, their dresses are AMAZING and so affordable!

    PS. I was in JCrew over the weekend and literally wanted everything.

  16. Speaking of J Crew copycats, I got a bubble necklace on eBay! They claim to be actually J. Crew, but I don't know if that's actually true. They shipped from like Hong Kong or something so I kind of doubt it. The point is, they come in all kinds of colors and are $15 instead of $150. Just search "J crew bubble necklace" on eBay and you'll find it!

    And for a little shameless self-promotion: I've worn it a few times on my blog :) Sarah's Real Life

  18. Great finds Laura! I especially like the third DP dress...I just found that site a couple of months ago and it's been a go-to!

  19. Love this! Please, please keep sharing your copycat finds! I, too, LOVE J.Crew but it is NOT in the budget right now :) Seriously, keep sharing your finds!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love the DP dresses - all three of them! But I have to agree with you - J. Crew is perfection. Love/hate that store! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I do this too! The sweaters are a total match, too! No one would know that you spent a fraction of the price on the same style.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE JCrew!! I have a serious addiction to their online sales and buy something at least once a month. My closet is 1/3 full with JCrew....it's bad....Thanks so much for this post...i need to get over to Old Navy ASAP!!
