You Look Very Familiar...Have I Seen You Some Place Before?

Hello Everyone! Today is Tuesday, and that means it's time for another *You Look Very Familiar...Have I Seen You Some Place Before?* post. This week is the Forever 21 Edition, so here we go:














Remember the J.Crew Snow-Leopard Simone Peacoat?



What about the J.Crew Jenna Bracelet?



What do you think about the F21 pieces? Have you seen any of them IRL? Do you own any? If not, would you consider purchasing any of them? Please feel free to comment. :)

  1. Wow, that Jenna bracelet knock off is a dead ringer! Some of the other items are very, very close as well.

    I was trying to go through all their tops to find something similar to the J. Crew imperial tee I missed out on and I wasn't able to make it through the multiple pages. Maybe I should try again!

  2. I just discovered F21 over Christmas break. I had never shopped there, but went in and was pleasantly surprised. I got 4 CUTE pcs (J.Crew and Anthro style knock-offs) for just under $100. Maybe not the quality that will last for years, but it's so much fun to wear for now. F21 is the place for cheap, fun, trendy stuff.

  3. Great finds - that bracelet is fab. I really do need to swing by there when I got to my usual mall. It just takes some energy... :)

  5. I agree with Coley! I will have to stop by Forever 21 today. A bit off topic: , I do have that jcrew sequin tiered top and i love it!! It's on sale too.

  6. I've seen the bracelet & it looks pretty good. One upside, in addition to price, is that it's lighter in weight than the J Crew version.

  7. I always see these great F21 pices on line but when I go into the store at Millenia I never see anything that I like. I also just don't have the patience to look though it all ...I always end up back at JCrew ;)
    These all look like great finds though - thanks!

  8. Desert Flower: I haven't seen one similar to the Imperial tee yet, but I did see the Eiffel Tower tee IRL yesterday and it was cute. The print is more subtle than it appears online. This is it. :)

  9. Hi Janna! Thanks for stopping by! :)

    Heidi: It definitely takes energy AND time to shop F21. Let me know if you see the bracelet IRL or find any other goodies. :)

    Thank you Coley and anon@12:33! :)

    Anon@12:33: I have the sequin tiered top in ivory and love it. I think it is so cute IRL, much more so than the online pics.

  10. Thanks for the info on the Jenna bracelet Gigi! I was in F21 yesterday but didn't see it.

    Hi melissa! I also think it's hard to find the online items at the Millenia F21. Have you been to the new one they just opened at Florida Mall? I haven't been, but I've heard that it actually has 2 floors, so I would imagine they are carrying more merchandise than Millenia does.

  11. I like the rolling ruffle tank knockoff. I am still kicking myself over not getting them (the nonsequinned version) from jcrew last yr! I do have the cupcake tank but it's not the same!
    fyi: I just saw a black tank with black sequins in a bow form, in the same spirit as the jcrew bow sequin top, at wal-mart today. it may be the miley cyrus line? I am not a clothes shopper at walmart(usually) and I didn't take a close look but, if you like lots of sequins and that look, it might be worth it to try it out. I am sure its a great price!

    sometimes, when I get out of my "crew haze" (hence, my username)and look around at other stores, I am truly amazed at the great knockoffs (that are sometimes even better quality) of jcrew items. and then I really know I need to lay off the crewlade, sober up, and shop other stores!!

    ps-I really like all your new posts!

  12. I have this bracelet in gold. My store also had silver. I think it's a good dupe for the J.Crew bracelet. It's very lightweight, which is nice. I hope it stays nice for a least a little while and the gold doesn't start rubbing off.

  13. crewlade drinka: Thank you so much for stopping by! I agree 100% with you about all the great knockoffs at other stores! I have also been finding better quality items at other retailers lately, since it seems that so many of J.Crew pieces are poorly made. Now I find myself mainly purchasing *special* pieces from J.Crew while getting my basics at other places for a lot less money. That is one of the reasons I've started blogging about other retailers...I think it's good for everyone to know there are other options out there. :)

    Sarah: Congrats on getting the bracelet! I've actually been contemplating buying it online since I wasn't able to find it at the store. I hate to pay the shipping, but at least it isn't that much to begin with. :)

  14. Thanks for the tip, FFM. Glad to hear that Eiffel Tower tee is more subtle than it looks on the website. I may order it!

  15. I feel the same way about the basic pieces can be purchased elsewhere for better quality than J Crew. I now buy my tees and sweaters elsewhere, Gap, ON, BR. J Crew pants and shorts give me the best fit, I love the matchsticks.

    I finally received my striped popover last night, UPS problems the driver took 3 days to deliver my package. I love it, I am so glad I sized down the med. would have been too big. I purchased the silk v-neck sweater in turqouise at BR to go over the shirt.

  16. I love the Animal Print coat. I wanted the Simone so bad last year and missed out. I may have to give this one a try.
