Tightwad Tuesday: KAiN Label Side Drape Pocket Tank for Less

Darlings, in the left corner we have KAiN Label’s luscious Side Drape Pocket Tank – the very same one gracing the form of both Lindsay Lohan and Twilight’s Dakota Fanning; in the right corner we have NYC Boutique’s blissful The Shark Bite Tank.

Though the NYC Boutique beauty is crafted out of a poly rayon/spandex blend, whereas the KAiN Label lovely is constructed out of a mix of silk and modal; for just $22.95, as opposed to the $94.00 asking price of the Side Drape Pocket Tank, it is every bit as enticing to one’s summer wardrobe – and utterly ideal for satiating the frugal fashionista’s craving for something fabulous!

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


Fashionably yours!

$94??? They also have a shirt similar in Express for 20 something. I'll be going for the cheaper one this time!

Valerie said...

This is a tough one! I love them both, but the Kain tank is so thin and drapes really nicely. I might go for that one! Crazy, right? Either way, they're both great! Hope you had a nice weekend.

I have to go with Kain. It feels so good against my skin. The only downside is the dry cleaning! x

KAiN?
sounds like Indonesian language, means fabric in english
do you know this brand made in what country?

Midtown Girl said...

I have a similar tank from F21 and bought a similar dress from ASOS!! Love the cut of this tank - perfect for layering over leggings <3

Hope you had a wonderful 4th darling!

Gorgeous!

Tights Lover said...

These are both gorgeous, but I do like the KAiN a little better. It seems to have a touch of sheerness to it that I really love!

Joanne said...

In this heatwave? Cool and thrifty, I'd splurge on two :)

The Blonde Duck said...

If I wore that I'd look really hippy.

Alicia said...

johanna said...

OMG. I love the top love love love

Savvy Gal said...

I like the style of KAiN but like the material of NYC better. : )

Leia said...

I think I'll be thrifty today - the NYC boutique one looks more wearable :)

Sara Lynn said...

22.95 anyday! What a great deal :) I wish those kinds of tops fit me better, I have one with sripes that I have yet to pair with something cute :P

chaoskontrolowany said...

Grace said...

I really like the style of this top. I'd take the cheap one, though!

Jen said...

Oooh, there's nothing in it! The cheapie looks almost identical so I'll go with that. Cute with skinny jeans and chunky heels, I bet! :) x

Oana R said...

The left one is see trough.That's the only reason I would choose the NYC B one.In fact,not the only.The right one is also cheaper. ;)
Hope you're ok!

AH said...

i'd be thrifty - the nyc boutique one looks great!

Sherin said...

I love both of them. The NYC is the one I definitely prefer: the colour is so much better.

B a la Moda said...

Thrifty alllll the way! I think I need one of those tops now. :) Super excited about Thrifty Tuesdays at the movies... $5 movies! Yippeee.. that means a second showing of Eclipse for me. I'm so in love with that Vampire... le sigh... Edward Cullen.

xx Love & Aloha
Swing by to enter my Cake Dress Giveaway!!

Nubiasnonsense said...

They are both so chic but I would go with the less expensive one this time

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

While I like the sheerness of the KAiN tank, as always thrifty > pricy (I should come up with a cool catchphrase for that one!), so I'd have to go with the NYC Boutique!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

All Women Stalker said...

I'd go cheap and buy at least three :)

SabinePsynopsis said...

They are both fabulous, but I might be tempted to fork out a bit more for the nice material. Actually, I want them both!
(Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Erika - stupid blogger seems to have swallowed it, but perhaps it will reappear. I'm sure you had your comment struggles too today.) xoxo

How did you know I am loving the drapey look this summer? You always know what I need to see.

Clare said...

THis top is perfection for the summer!! It is so flowy!

Leah said...

I love them both... the other one because of the price and the other because of the material. Tough choices. Happy Tuesday! xoxo

Josie said...

I LOVE the less expensive one -- so cute, and the pocket is fab.

Emily said...

I love tanks like these! I've missed your frugal finds, Erika :)

Le Sigh of a Fashionista said...

I love these. Both are soooo cute! Good picks!

hélène said...

Loving the tank top, sooo incredibly perfect for this heat wave we're experiencing!

Pixie Drive-In said...

Thrifty for shore! It's a dead ringer for the more expensive one. Cute tanks!

Cindy Whitehead said...

I like the less expensive one as the fabric is a bit thicker - love my Kain tees but sometimes i think they are "too" thin (-:

P.S. Following you on twitter now (-:

K said...

Honestly, I'm not sure if I would be able to pull off the look at all! But if I did, it would have to be with the NYC Boutique one. I don't like uber-sheer tops.

Claire Kiefer said...

I love the color so much more in the pricey one . . . but not enough to pay $100 for a tank top! :)

Mara said...

oh I looove these tops! I just love the draping and the cut. So simple and yet so cute!

DafnaDiamant said...

copycat all over...I would take the cheaper one, 100 bucks for a shirt.haha

AMK said...

I really like none of them.. :S But I like the NYC version better.

XOXO

Sootjeelina said...

I love thanks like that! But I know an ever cheaper one at the H&M! I'm going to buy it very soon I think

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

For 22.50? I would def get that one!!! It looks just as special as the expensive one!

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Erika! My mouth dropped as soon as I saw this... I JUST (seriously!) ordered a Kain Label V-Neck Tee. What on earth are the chances?! So, eventhough it's not totally identical to this one you've featured here we are definitely on the same page!!

ellie said...

so simple yet very cool. interesting find.

meg said...

Now that's inspiring! Great find.

Meg said...

Both are really cool. I like the KAiN one better, but you can't beat the steal price!

J. said...

Thrifty for sure! Silk is not an easy fabric in the Texas heat!

ediot said...

L O V E both these- and also a similar top ive seen from wang.. such a great top that you can dress up and down depending on what you pair it with..
xxx

Faith J. said...

I like both, but the KAiN is toooo sheer. Why pay a lot for something that doesn't wear on its own?
