Requested Dress for Less: The Madewell Dress and Belle Sigerson Morrison Flats

  Tuesday, October 12, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
Here are 2 recent Dress for Less Requests I've received.  First Emily asked me to find a similar dress to the Alexa Chung for Madewell velvet dress, under $100 (basically she said she wanted a velvet dress with a vintage-looking collar).  B a la Moda asked me to find similar flats to the Belle Sigerson Morrison ones featured in this post!

The dress was quite I cheated a bit..there are hardly any velvet dresses with Peter Pan collars out there :/  Not many simple velvet dresses that aren't skin tight or nasty, either XD  So sorry this one stinks, I tried my best I also posted a not velvet one that's pretty cute.
Alexa Chung for Madewell $168.00
Velvet Dress - ASOS $67.40
Peter Pan Collar - ASOS $13.48
TOTAL: $80.88
Yes Style - $40.50

I think I was a lot more successful with this one, even though there are only 2 matches, the Steve Madden is pretty darn close :D  The ASOS ones have a similar vibe even though they aren't as similar.
Belle Sigerson Morrison $107.50
Steve Madden $84.25
ASOS $13.48

  19. I love the alexa chung for madewell dress, and the alternative is great too, good finds!


  20. Hey! Thanks so much... and I love the grey Yes Style dress. And don't worry, I know it was a super-difficult task, because I've been scouring the web like a mad person myself. (Some vintage velvet dresses on Etsy are the closest I could find, and most look a bit like Irish dance costumes)!

  21. loving this inspiration
    MAD perfection, so great
    thanks for your comments on my blog, they mean the world!


  22. I think you did a fantastic job with trying to match the dress! So cute!

  23. I need to invent an occasion (and $67) to wear that ASOS velvet dress :) I do have to warn you, I ordered from the US site but it still takes quite a bit of time. Haven't got my hat yet. I ordered the silliest thing too, that hat that looks like a bear with poms on top, haha!

  24. I think you did a great job with this one. That Yes Style dress is really cute. Do you know how they are on sizing?

  25. Man, I do love that madewell dress! I'd probably just scour a bunch of thrift stores to find a velvet dress and get it tailored to fit then make a peter pan collar if I was desperate...which I just may be ;)


  26. I'd almost be tempted to just buy the real thing... ahh.. it's tooo cute! x

  27. WOW!! Thanks a lot for doing my request! I love the ASOS ones. They are so cute! Love this kind of posts. Thanks again.

  30. The collar detail is just cute =) love both of Yestyle's and the piece on Alexa Chung. Both are very sweet :)xxbarbiejunk

  31. Love how structured and feminine is this season! These dresses are killer! Have you seen all the bows everywhere?? I love when adults can still dress up for back-to-school season!


  32. Free shipping at Asos?! Woohoo!


  33. That Yes Style dress is so cute! Great find!

  34. I know this comment is a wee bit late but just FYI I have the Alexa Chung dress and I don't think the price was that far above $100- Also, I wear it constantly so if you are thinking price per wear then it is actually quite inexpensive : )
