Sunday Steals: Anthropologie by Eva Franco Aniseed Skirt for Less

Darlings, on the left we have Anthropologie’s utterly adorable Aniseed Skirt, the very same one that completely sold out Online within the blink of an eye – or so it seems; on the right we have ModCloth’s majestically cute Cricket Match Skirt.

Though ModCloth’s marvel lacks the ever so slight crinkled appearance of the Anthropologie piece; for a mere $41.00, as opposed to the $128.00 price tag of the Aniseed, it allows the frugal fashionista to truly show her stripes – at a fraction of the price!

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


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Anthropologie and ModCloth for the pictures.

The modcloth one is even nicer than the anthropologie version! Love it. The material looks less likely to wrinkle and if there's anything that can completely ruin a cute outfit, it's wrinkles.

And thank you for the congratulations/comment. I really appreciate it :)

Natasha said...

I like the Anthro version of the skirt, even though I'm not fond of either skirt, really. I think I can grow to love them, though.

Meream said...

The cheaper version is definitely nicer. I'd go for that.

I CAN sew me something similar, though....

*brain making whirring sounds*

Tasha Gregson said...

Love this!! It's so cute, and the detail is great :) Tough choice, maybe the modcloth one as the stripes are far apart, thanks for great finds xx

Melissa said...

Wow, these are ridiculously similar!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I like the Antro skirt more.

Sarah said...

I actually like the ModCloth one a little bit better,so I would go for that one. Great find, Erika!

ellie said...

I actually like Modcloth better..it seems much neater.

London's-beauty said...

I need to be a bit thrifty now because I need to buy new smart clothes for school. I'm losing money *gasps* but that skirt is gorgeous! The modcloth one looks good :)

Chic Geek (Devs) said...

That is such a cute skirt! Loving the nautical vibe.

Josie said...

I've been OBSESSED with that Anthro skirt for such a long time -- your Modcloth find is spectacular, dear!

I like the more streamlined modcloth look more anyway!

DiamondsandTulle said...

Considering I already bit the bullet a long time ago - the Anthro version is the one I have. I think the ModCloth version is a great affordable alternative but worry how short it is. I can actully wear mine to work - it's long enough. Happy Sunday Ericka!

Modcloth please! It is nearly the same skirt. I think that anthro is way over priced anyway and I am happy to support modcloth

Clare said...

Love this skirts! And since it is basically the same exact skirt I will definitely buy the Mod Cloth one!

Style with Benefits said...

Again, how do you find these?! I actually prefer the ModCloth one b/c of the crinkle-free material. Super adorable and chic skirt.

Hope you are having a fab weekend!

xx, becs

Mruna Mistry said...

The modcloth one is better than the anthro...

Becca said...

I actually prefer the Modcloth one. I think this would be a really fun skirt to layer up with some tights and really chunky boots.

Both are great and nobody would be able to really tell the difference I'm sure.

MarchMusings said...

Good spotting on your part. Love the Modcloth version

Pixie Drive-In said...

Haha, cute skirts, but they really do look the same! I guess I would go for the more affordable Modclothe then!

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Sweet -- kind of little girl-ish but grown up. I actually like the Modcloth version better and I'd definitely have fun wearing it with something simple on top and maybe a sparkly pair of sandals! Great picks!!

Maddy said...

Love Anthropologie!! Visited the store yesterday and if I could buy the whole store, I would :) However, your cheaper alternative is right in my price range!!

Krystal said...

Oh my goodness, I LOVE this skirt!

vdcouture said...

Keith said...

I think the modclothe one is actually the better looking of the two. Hope you had a great weekend.

Sara Lynn said...

That Modcloth one is perfect Erika! I love stripped skirts as it is, that is so cute!

Caitlin said...

Gahh! so cute...ummm, the bank tells me to go with the cheaper version. And so does my student loan. :(
Alas , I must listen and ignore the brand name.

Love these kinda posts, splurge or steal! I'd go for the Anthro but yes for much less money, I'd probably go home with Modcloth in reality!
