Thrifty Thursday: Just Cavalli Zebra-Print Pencil Skirt for Pennies

Kitty cats, to the left feast your eyes on Just Cavalli’s zany Zebra-Print Pencil Skirt; to the right, take a peek at The Limited’s Printed Pencil Skirt.

Though The Limited’s lovely is ever so slightly shorter than the tres chic Just Cavalli number, and is fashioned out of stretch faille fabric as opposed to monochrome silk-satin; for a minute $59.50, in comparison to the $390.00 asking price of its high-end cousin, it is every bit as covetable – and priced just right for the budget fashionista!

Your turn loves…will you be thrifty or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Net-A-Porter and The Limited for the pictures.

Hm, I like the pattern better on The Limited's, but like the longer length of the Cavalli. So I'm on the fashion fence with this one!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Definitely the spendy one!


P.S. I have something for you on my blog!

Valerie said...

I'm loving zebra print right now and these are both too cute! I'd definitely go for Limited version.

Haha! I love your way with words! And yes, the Limited one is super cute.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I love the paneling on the Limited one- so fab! :)

Nikolett said...

Ahh I adore the pattern on the Cavalli one, I don't think I could ever pull that print off but I'd sure love to!

anhesty said...

as usual i am going with the thrifty choice. cute skirt find!

Sara Lynn said...

I actually really like the Cavalli one better, but the Limited one is a great cheap alternative. If I had the cash, I would splurge though, it's so cute and chic :)

Couture Carrie said...

Will have to be a spendthrift on this one ~ that Cavalli skirt is just too amazing!

Leah said...

Definitely the cheaper version for me... I love stretch fabrics and the length of the skirt is perfect.

Happy Thursday Erika! xoxo

nookie said...

I like the limited one more!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

What a great price for the cheaper version, and I love it! I will take the $59.50 adorable zebra-print skirt please.... :):)

Have a wonderful day my Love!

The Cavalli skirt is gorgeous! The length on the Cavalli amps up the sophistication factor. And to be honest, I'm also not thrilled about the seam coming down the front of the Limited number. Not all prints are created equal.

Yes, ashley tisdale is a very famous and good actress!
very good photoo!
kisses!

ellie said...

Cavalli! Cavalli!

Josie said...

These are absolutely gorgeous! I tend to be skeptical of animal prints in such large doses, but that Cavalli skirt really may have changed my mind.

The Blonde Duck said...

On this one, I'd have to spend and go with Cavalli. I like the pattern more.

Claire Kiefer said...

I gotta admit I like the Cavalli length more, but the Limited one is a pretty great alternative! Especially with some brightly colored shoes :)

Nikki said...

Oh I love "The Limited" one. :)


Thanks! :) Feels great to end highschool.

Melanie's Randomness said...

I'm actually really liking the Limited one. I wish I had a limited by me still.

MOLLYKT said...

BALLET NEWS said...

Love the pattern but I really don't think I'd have the confidence to wear them...

Jen said...

It's Cavalli all the way for me! Love the fit of the skirt and that zebra print is FIERCE! :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

This may be my favorite so far!!! I love the print and I love a good pencil skirt.... Hmmm... The Limited... I need to get my pencil shaped figure on over to a Limited pronto!
Great one!

SabinePsynopsis said...

$390 against $60... Ouch! But it doesn't matter, I need to be a big spender here. Mr Cavalli's is just too pretty.

Melanie said...

Love it!

i think this time i prefer the cavalli version!

AH said...

the cavalli one looks so much better, so i'd have to put on my spendthrift cap... definitely!

Sherin said...

They're both so pretty. But I think I prefer the Limited's.

Taj Acosta said...

I really like them both! don't make me choose between 2 zebras! But since I spent too much on shoes today, I would go with the cheaper! xoxo

All Women Stalker said...

Cheap, of course! The length is more my style :)

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Oo, I'm gonna have to go with the one from Just Cavalli. I love the silhouette.

J said...

thrify for sure! i like the fact its a lil shorter and the pattern a lil better!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Pretty skirts. I love the Just Cavalli. :)

Clare said...

Oh man I love the Cavalli one!! But I can't handle that price tag! OUCH! Time to start saving...
xoxox

Elle said...

I usually shy away from animal print but zebra in small doses might be worth exploring... on a budget sadly as all my shopping funds have gone toward shoes :)

Alicia said...

Bummer, I prefer the Cavalli pencil skirt over the Limited one. :(

Alicia said...

Bummer i prefer the Cavalli one, but the Limited is a great option!

Le Sigh of a Fashionista said...

I like The Limited version like 80000x better!!

Aury said...

That zebra print is amazing! but I think the panelling has totally won me over this time.

lovely post as always dearest!

S.Elisabeth said...

Ooh I'll take the Limited one! The shorter hemline works for me, and there's something so much more appealing about that $59.50 price tag...!

Cindy Whitehead said...

Love the zebra print - wish I could pull it off! (-:

ak said...

it really amazes me how sometimes the one for less usually looks better than the more expensive one

xx

Punctuation Mark said...

love both skirts... i wouldn't mind having one of each... ha!

meg said...

so cool. really a great find.

Join the Gossip said...

Both cute! The less expensive one has a bit more flair though =)

nicole said...

Great post Erika, and surprisingly I prefer the more thriftier version of skirt to the Cavalli one. It's weird how it's like that sometimes, isn't it? but you definitely save a ton of money! I really like this Thrifted Thursday weekly feature, it's awesome!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I like the Limited one better I think! Cheaping out is the way to go for me on this one, especially since it's Zebra and not too versatile- seems fun to just scrimp on it.

Death Wears Diamond Jewellery said...

not a fan of either! looks like it would be way unflattering

Audrey Allure said...

They both look really cute, I would definitely pick The Limited :)

Sara Bentley said...

I'll choose thrifty, thank you very much! The pattern is really cute -- I'm not into zebra handbags but as a print it's cool. I'm looking forward to dressing it down with a white tank and black Havaianas :)

J. said...

Love a good zebra print, but I don't own any (yet...)I'd first try the Express number to see if zebra and I were made for each other...

Rachel said...

I'll definitely be thrifty and go for the one from The Limited!

janettaylor said...

Love The Limited piece!


janettaylor said...

WOW! Love The Limited piece! :)


Emily said...

the limited skirt for sure ;)

Pixie Drive-In said...

Oh my, I LOVE zebra prints so much! Although I'd probably have to go thrifty on this one. These are so sassy and adorable!

Cynthia said...

I actually like the pattern on The Limited one better... Though that's likely because I'm not very into animal prints.

Cavalli is one of favorite designers - wonderful find, Erika!
