Sunday Steals: Joie 'Joyce' Lace Sleeve Voile Top for Less

Dolls, in the left corner we have Joie’s sophisticated ‘Joyce’ Lace Sleeve Voile Top; in the right corner we have the romantic Shaylee Lace Shirt from GUESS.

While the GUESS gem is constructed out of pleated cotton and embellished with fluttering lace sleeves, as opposed to the cotton/silk blend that makes up the Joie jewel; for $69.00, in comparison to the $152.00 required to take Joie home, it is every bit as magnificent as its high-end counterpart – and leaves a bit of spare change over for you to splurge on a haute new handbag!

Is today the day for you to please the big spender within; or will you play it cool and be thrifty?


Fashionably yours!

Susu Paris Chic said...

As you maybe know this by now, with my teacher's salary I cannot be a big spender... But luckily one can enjoy fashion with tighter means alike. This is what my outfit posts are about as well. Fortunately, the GUESS item looks non-the-less classier than the expensive one.

Thank you dear Erika, for you friendship and your always encouraging words! You are one of the sweetest bloggers I have come across and I just enjoy so much being blog pals. Hopefully one day we'll make it to the same place, same city. We'll have a glass of champagne and just talk our time away.

Sweetest of hugs to you dear Erika!

Joanne Faith said...

The Joie is actually much prettier...I love the detail around the neckline. I'd buy it. ;)
