{Splurge v. Steal} J.Crew v. Joe Fresh for JCP + launch pics!

Canadian retailer Joe fresh arrived at JCP this past weekend to excited customers (myself included). I was there on Saturday morning and was impressed at the affordable prices and strong resemblance to high end retailer J.Crew. When I first spotted the little checkered shirts, I knew it looked familiar, but it wasn't until I walked by J.Crew's store the next day (yes, I hit the mall twice this weekend) that I noticed a very similar shirt. I almost went back to JCP for a few more after that close encounter..and still might. Don't wait to pick one of these up, they seem to be their best seller and now we know why. Shop Joe Fresh Collection
 Did you shop the collection or are you planning to in the future?

 
Joe Fresh Gingham Shirt $19 // J.Crew $69.50 (reg $78)


{Joe Fresh for JCP}

  Joe Fresh is here!

 Apparently some of the Joe Fresh stores are located in supermarkets, which is where the "fresh" 
term originated (in case you were wondering ;-)

 The "store within a store" shop

The popular gingham shirts and solid voile shirts (thinner, lightweight material)

 Cardigan Sweaters for only $16 

Slim-fit Colored Jeans for $19  
I really wanted to love them, but they just seemed to have too much material in all the wrong places.

Blue and red printed dresses and tops looked more expensive than their price tag

 Cute striped dresses

This group reminded me a bit of H&M


Random same day pic at Marshalls:
 I was walking by and noticed the orange tag! This was the very first time I had ever seen Joe Fresh at Marshalls (only in the pj's dept), I think it may have been on my radar because of the JCP launch.



Thanks for reading!

  7. I just went to JCP this weekend. I didn't get anything from this line, but I was pleased with the store overall. A lot of cute stuff. Sad that there are rumors they are going under :/
