Dress for Less: Lusting Over



  Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
I decided to do another expensive Dress for Less post, ha ha...talk about an oxymoron.  The last time I did one everyone seemed to enjoy it, so I thought I'd try it out again.  This has no price limit and is an outfit from my dream wardrobe. All I have to do to get it is to marry a millionaire or win the lottery ;)
Sweater - J. Crew $70
Skirt - Preen Line $415
Boots - Burberry $995
Watch - Michael Kors $250
Black Tights: ASOS $6.90
TOTAL:  $1736.90
P.S. I wanted to pair it with this T by Alexander Wang sweater and oddly enough they had styled it with that skirt...HOW WEIRD! So I felt weird using it because it would look like I cheated and used their styling ;)

Once again I did a cheaper version, about 83% cheaper, oh yeaaaaa ;) (still a lot though)
Sweater - ASOS - $25.86
Skirt - ASOS $51.72
Boots - Mea Shadow $165
Watch - ASOS $51.72
Black Tights: ASOS $6.90
TOTAL:  $301.20

  1. Kohl's DID have a version of that watch for like 20-25 but it sold out really fast. I know because My BFF wanted it really badly and I couldn't get there fast enough for Christmas! It's in my Friday Fancies post that's going up tomorrow, in honor of Miss*B.

    I like the J.Crew sweater better with the Preen skirt than the Alexander Wang sweater, so good call in my book!

  9. You truly are a girl after my own heart- as beautiful as the first look is, the second one is equally so and really, how on earth could anyone possibly justify the price difference? Those Burberry boughts should be made of gold, considering their price! Fabulous comparison :)
    xox,
    Cee

  15. So cool!! I have been lusting after that specific MK watch forever but now I may just have to turn my focus on the ASOS option--so pretty and so much friendlier to my wallet.

  19. Love the MK watch of course :)

  20. Maybe it's the hint of a cute MiuMiu style top, and maybe it's the volume, but I prefer the second skirt! My weekly Sunday Times fashion magazine does this Skinted or Minted thing, and sadly most often the Minted wins for me, but sometimes there are some real treasures!
