J.Crew: The Look For Less

{Updated here}
I got a new J.Crew catalog yesterday. I was delighted with the idea of perusing it's pages for new inspiration. I found this outfit (sorry for the poor quality, I had to take a picture of the catalog). Here is my version on a budget:

The Scarf:

Glam Lux Scarf - Forever 21

Fringed Linen Scarf - J.Crew

The Top:

Boyfriend Tee - Wetseal

Cashmere Short-Sleeve Crewneck Tee - J.Crew

The Belt:

Floral Applique Stretch Belt - Urban Outfitters

Bouquet Sash Belt - J.Crew

The Skirt:

Metallic High Waist Skirt - Newport News

Mica Mini - J.Crew

The Sandals:

Women's Embellished T-Strap Sandals - Old Navy

Dauphine Metallic-Leather T-Strap Sandals - J.Crew

What do you think of this combination? Leave a comment!

Thanks for reading, and as always,

Happy Shopping!


  1. this is the perfect outfit for work...good job.

  2. I saw this one too in the catalogue and loved it! I like all the alternate pieces you found to put it together for less, such a good idea!

  3. Hi Madeline! First, I love your name! I just started following your blog which is fantabulous :-) Second, great job on the alternative version of the outfit!

  4. Great post, and what clever finds for a "look for less". I actually just ordered the Mica Mini from J Crew (for $150, ack!) and I'm hoping it works out. If it doesn't, though, I think I'll definitely try the one from Newport News. *wiggles*

  5. Chloe- The Newport News one is longer than the Mica.... you can see it on a form at the website. I actually today saw a cute mini with subtle gold tone at forever 21, http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=BTMs&product%5Fid=2060036352&showBACK=OK. It's pretty sweet. Thanks for checking out the blog and commenting.
