Thrifty Thursday: Anthropologie Ripped Page Wrap for Less

My loves, to your left please take a gander at Anthropologie’s refined Ripped Page Wrap; to the right, feast your eyes on Wet Seal’s ravishing Raw Edge Fleece Wrap.

Though the Wet Seal marvel is constructed out of a mix of cotton and polyester, as opposed to the ribbed jersey which makes up the ambrosial Anthropologie accessory; for just $24.50, in comparison to the 78.00 needed to take the Ripped Page Wrap home, it is every bit as capable of keeping you glamorous and warm come fall, at a price that leaves over enough extra cash to splurge on a new pair of boots!

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


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Anthropologie and Wet Seal for the pictures.

Great choices, but I'd go for the Wet Seal version. I think Anthopologie is rarely worth the high price tag plus the color is so sensitive, it's better to opt for the cheaper alternative!

THAT COAT IS JUST GORGEOUS <3

I am never a Wet Seal fan and I just love Anthro so definitely Anthro.

Chic Geek (Devs) said...

They are both gorgeous! But just because they look so similar I would aim for the wet seal one!

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

This looks BEYOND cozy for fall! :)

oh just checked Anthro link and only XL left :(
maybe the store has it and maybe other colors???

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

love this coat, the color is gorgeous! think I'll take the wet seal...

Jamie said...

hmm...on this one I am leaning toward the Anthro version. I actually like the cut better and I think the jersey fabric will last longer. I do like the price tag of the Wet Seal version though...this is a tough one!

For me it would depend on how they fit. The Anthro version looks a little less bulky which I like.

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

hope you're having a wonderful week!

Ruby Mines said...

wow both of these are so feminine. I might get this..my evil plan is a fall full of romantic sweaters. I would really like some crochet ones- I saw a few by marc jacobs that were beyond lovely. I think people overlook that if worn with the right hair and jewelry a sweater can be as romantic as a dress. great post!

I'm going to have to go with Anthro on this!! $78 is not too bad and I just love the collar and fabric better :) Now if you had said the anthro piece was $278, then I may have to consider the Wet Seal option!

Dancing Branflake said...

Erika! You are a genius! I love the Wet Seal version and I can't understand how you always manage to find these things. Thank you for letting me know- you are so very sweet! I would gladly frolick in this one in the Fall.

ana said...

I love both! they are sooo pretty

Eszter said...

I was just at Antrho yesterday! They have the CUTEST dresses out! I was drooling.

FASHION SNAG said...

Anthro! I have never bought anything from there, but the fabric seems nicer. I might buy the Wet Seal for the beach though since it is so similar and great price. x

Tights Lover said...

I definitely love both of them! I guess I'd lean towards the Anthro since I find myself shopping there much more often.

I guess the boots will just have to wait!

Theresa said...

For once I'm gonna say the higher priced one, Anthropology. I prefer the material and the neckline looks a better in my opinion.
Wonderful finds. &heats;

ellie said...

The extra cash would definitely come in handy for boots!

Valerie said...

This is utterly adorable. Why not go for the inexpensive wrap, they look exactly the same! Great job, Erika!

As much as I ADORE Anthropologie, it's usually pricier than it should be. That being said, however, there's something about the Anthro version I like more than the Wet Seal one. Still, great find!

Emily said...

I actually like the wet seal version better :)

Sherin said...

I definitely prefer the Anthropologie one. It looks so much more elegant.

It's sooo dreary in DC today and I would love to wrap myself up in either of these and curl up on the couch!

I must splurge this time -- the Anthro one looks thinner and a bit comfier than the Wet Seal one.
