I'm bummed that Coldwater Creek has gone bottoms-up. Who's their best online replacement?

Best answer: Try NorthStyle, Acacia or Soft Surroundings. Those are all online sources, though I've seen Soft Surroundings in some brick and mortar.

Also, Coldwater Creek is back up online, if you didn't know that.

I've been finding the selection lacking since they came back (where, oh where, are my favorite jeans?), so in case you're still looking for some alternatives - I've also found some of the same clothing niche in my life filled by Sahalie, TravelSmith, and J. Jill.

Seconding JJill

I have so much Coldwater Creek in my closet, I can't even.... I seriously just about threw a funeral this spring when I found out they were going out of business. I don't think the new online-only CWC quite catches the vibe of my old friend, although its hard to put my thumb on just why.

NorthStyle and JJill are good recs; Sahalie is part of the Blair group of catalog retailers that also includes Norm Thompson and Appleseeds (NT comes closest to CWC IMHO and is good quality, but it's got a very small selection); you can search the entire Blair group lineup at Orchard. Serengeti is owned by the same group as NorthStyle and overlaps slightly in style, but maybe a little brighter/more vibrant color palette. Chico's if you haven't already tried that. Anthropologie if you are regular-sized and have money to burn.
