Sunday Steals: Halston Heritage Stripe Lurex Pleated Cocktail Dress for Less

Kitty cats, to your left you will find Halston Heritage’s haute Stripe Lurex Pleated Cocktail Dress – the very same piece Sarah Jessica Parker wore while playing everyone’s favorite fashionista Carrie Bradshaw in the film Sex and the City 2 (LIKE); to your right you will see Go Jane’s Tiered Accordion Pleat Tank Dress (TRY).

(WHY?) While the shade of the jazzy Go Jane number is slightly less electrifying than the Halston Heritage original, and lacks the shimmer of the silver threading; for just $32.80, in comparison to the $435.00 price tag of the Halston hottie, it is every bit as glamorous – and leaves you room to pick up one in every color...coral, black, turquoise, and jade!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this saucy Sunday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I'm going with the tightwad today!

Pixie Drive-In said...

Oh, I just love this dress. It was my favorite look from Sex and the City 2. I think I would have to go for the Go Jane one though.

Joanne said...

I'll opt for the Go Jane. The pleats remind me of my wedding gown train, which was pleated like that (but in cream, not blue!) Happy Sunday to you ...

Rachel said...

The Go Jane dress is definitely a good find. It looks so similar to the Halston dress! But I think I'm gonna have to splurge and go with Halston just because I love the color more than the Go Jane one.

Sherin said...

I love the GoJane one. It's such a beautiful colour.

WeShop said...

I just really, really want the Halston one! xx

ak said...

xx

Oana Roxana said...

I pick the first one.I like it more and the color it's also better. But...I wouldn't buy it. ;))

Kristin said...

WOWZA, they sure copied that one didn't they? I think the color is still pretty on the bargain beauty..but I'm still trying to figure out how I can justify the HH!

ellie said...

I just couldn't think of wearing anything that expensive..I like that the Go Jane dress looks like something you could really travel with for the summer.

AH said...

spendthrift, definitely! the colour is just divine!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Ooo, I'll say the Go Jane one is so worth it when it comes to Price!!! Of course I want the SJP one but that's too much of a price difference. I love it!!

Leah said...

I prefer the color of the Go Jane dress... it's fresh and so perfect for summer.

Happy Sunday Erika! xoxo

Anna Jane said...

Oooh it's a tough one! I do prefer the cut and shimmery effect of the HH version, but the Go Jane price tag is all too tempting!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Again, I'll have to be on the tightwad side of things. I can't see that looking too fantastic on my body, so I would want to save a purchase in the hundreds for something more flattering to my shape. However, I can see how it would be a perfect lightweight piece for those sweetie summer evenings.

Jen said...

this is fantastic! my top two color picks would have to be black (of course, lbd!) and coral. :)

sapphirewhisper said...

Sometimes I can definitely be a spendthrift but I love the original. The fabric and color are so rich which compliment how light and airy the cut is. This looks like it would have to be a credit card purchase though and not my most pratical decision but I can't help it.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

The GoJane option is lovely! I saw someone try on the black Halston Heritage last week and it's such a fun, flirty dress.

I feel like it's been forever dear. Hope all is well with school and everything. xoxo

Nina said...

Love both dresses, Erika! But better to spend less nowadays, right?

Corrine/Frock And Roll said...

Both are heavenly, but the Go Jane version completely blew my socks off!

FASHIONconfectionairy said...

I do like both, but I prefer the colour by Halston, good cheap substitute though.

I like both versions..either one is a catch :) despite the price tag.

Josie said...

What a fantastic find, my dear! I do love the Halston Heritage color but can't beat that Go Jane price!

Keith said...

I love them both. Being that I'm broke if I was buying one for somebody it would have to be the Go Jane dress.

Mademoiselle Égérie said...

They are both lovely, but I think I prefer the royal blue colour. It looks more glamouros

Cindy Whitehead said...

They both look good - I'd go for the GO JANE (-:

Chandra H said...

dahling!

between the two I like the Jane most...because of that color... although both dresses aren't really my style so I'd probably pass altogether.

hope you're having a beautiful June <3
