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

Hello Everyone! It's time for another edition of *You Look Very Familiar...Have I Seen You Some Place Before*?

This is an ongoing series of posts in which I share less expensive 'look-a-like' alternatives to pricier clothing items from J.Crew, Madewell, and high-end designers/retailers, allowing you to get their look for less...let's get started, shall we? :)

*Ponte Peplum Hem Top in 'calia stripe white' or Sleeveless Peplum Top in 'navy stripe'

*Similarly is the Ruffle Mixed-Media Tank

*In a different silhouette but very similar print is the Lightweight Printed Shirt in 'blue bandana'

Similarly is the Plaid Button-Front Shirt

Kate Spade capri espadrille francis tote bag in 'painterly lemons'

*Similarly is the Kennedy canvas tote in 'lemon'

A big THANK YOU goes to AnneG for sharing the next 'Familiar Find' with us:

***If you have a 'Familiar Find' you would like to share, please feel free to email it to me: allthingssimplified.me@gmail.com.

That's it for this week's edition...I hope you've enjoyed it!


  1. Another great post Melissa ! Such great alternatives. I have a favor to ask; I love the Chartan Croc sandal by rag & bone. They would be the perfect summer sandal for me but the $350 price tag is insane & way out of budget for me. would it be possible for you to find me a substitute ? Thanks, Dawn

    1. Thanks Dawn! I'm glad you enjoyed this round of alternatives. As for the Chartan Croc sandal, I will definitely do my best to find you a less-expensive alternative. What color are you interested in? The Tan pair?

    2. Any color will do: I just like the style. I think it is stylish & would be a supportive sandal. My feet are sensitive & tire easily. Thanks for your help :-) u r the best ! Hugs, Dawn

    3. No problem Dawn...happy to help! Hopefully someone out there in the retail world has decided (or will decide) to make a copy-cat pair. Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

    4. Hey Dawn, I just wanted to mention that finding an alternative for the rag & bone sandals could take a little time. Of course I'll try for next week's post, but I'm just not sure that will happen unless someone has already made a similar pair that I come across. Rest assured, I will be on the hung for them though! :)

  2. Hi Melissa! I bought the jeweled cluster copycat Kohls jeweled sweater a few weeks ago in black on super clearance. It looks really cute over a black/white gingham shirt with a stack of silver bracelets. I found it to fit on the smaller end to true to size in my usually small. Hope that helps anyone interested! Thanks as always for the suggestions to keep us all helping out the economy!

    1. Hi Shopping Celle! Thank you so much for the review of the kohls sweater! It's always so great to hear how the products are IRL. I'm glad you like it, and the way you paired it with the black/white gingham shirt sounds supercute, too! :)
