Dress for Less: Only Dreaming



  Thursday, July 8, 2010 at 8:14 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:, 
Well...this is sort of the opposite of a Dress for Less since it is me dressing for less as if I were rich and spending $1000 on an outfit was cheap.  I also did a cheaper alternative below for under $100 ;)
Dress - Diane von Furstenberg - $300
Shoes - Valentino - $312.75
Bag - Paul & Joe - $195
Sunglasses - Forever 21 - $5.80
TOTAL - $813.55
Dress - New Look - ~$33
Shoes - Forever 21 - $14.80
Bag - Apt 9 from Kohls - $30.80
Sunglasses - Forever 21 - $5.80
TOTAL - $84.40

  7. What I like about this post is that it shows that high fashion looks can be found for much more affordable prices. I'm pretty sure most fashion bloggers are willing to pay the 84 total. Very nice dress for less!

  8. Great post! I love the sunglasses and the bag in the first set. It's actually pretty reasonably priced at $195...I might have to check into this. And it's funny, because I think I actually prefer the cheaper dress.
