Tightwad Tuesday: Kardashians for bebe One Shoulder Pleated Dress for Less

Dolls, to the left you’ll find the irresistible Kardashians by bebe One Shoulder Pleated Dress; to the right you’ll spot Shock Boutique’s blissful Exaggerated One Shoulder Little Black Dress.

While the sassy Shock Boutique number lacks the exposed zipper along the back, so prevalent on the Kardashian creation; for a mere $42.00, in comparison to the $129.00 asking price of Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney’s avant-garde frock, it is every bit as capable as wowing your many admirers – at a fraction of the cost!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Kardashians by bebe, or be thrifty and spring for Shock Boutique?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to bebe and Shock Boutique for the pictures.

although the shock boutique version is pretty, I am especially in love with the drapped part of the kardash-version ... 129,- isn't cheap but then again its not out of the world for a gorgeous LBD :) i would splurge!

I'd go for the Shock dress because it isn't something I, or most people, could get a ton of wear out of. I'd rather spend upwards of $100 on something I know I'll get to use all the time. That's too trendy for a splurge in my opinion.

Where have I been? I did not know that the Kardashian girls had a line for Bebe. I really need to go back into that store and check it out. Except Bebe is a little too expensive for my taste.

Melanie's Randomness said...

I'd spend the money in Bebe! That's not that expensive & I think the real one looks prettier!!

Maddy said...

I agree with Vicky, I'm digging the drapped bottom on the Kardashian piece too!! But it's Bebe, I'm sure it will go on sale in no time ;o)

Jamie said...

Another genius find!! I am definitely gonna be thrifty on this one!!

They both look great, but I think I prefer the less expensive version, less shoulder action :) Great find!

Heather {A Measure Of...} said...

Ooh, I think I even like the shock one better too! :) Isn't it great when you like the cheaper version more?

Valerie said...

Such a pretty dress! I can totally imagine Kim wearing this (or maybe I've even seen her wearing it). They look the same though, so I'd go for the cheaper one.

So gorgeous! The Kardashians dress looks slightly more elegant and for a fancy event, whereas the Shock Boutique looks more casual or a fun party dress, but just as cute. Love them both, great find!

The Anthology said...

This one, my dear, I'd cheap out on. I actually like it better, to be perfectly honest. It's less distracting on the model.

That, and I couldn't bring myself to wear anything by the Kardashians. I'm just not a fan.

Chiara said...

I would go for the Shock one, although I looooove bold zippers at the moment.

Oana Roxana said...

One-shouldered dresses are not something I woud invest in,but the Kardashians one seems more stylish,more elegant.

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

What a fabulous evening dress! Love it.

S.Elisabeth said...

Ooh I like cheaper version. I feel like it's better for day wear, whereas the Bebe one is more for one of those standout nights.

Toutou Ly said...

Kardashian one is so legit! I love the Kardashians; all of them have awesome style and they're all beautiful and hilarious! I'm so fiending for that dress now. :X

Mimi said...

IDK its not my thing...I can't do one shouldered and I'm not a huge fan of Kardashian style. But it is an amazing look for less!

Stephanie said...

Amazing!! I even like the bebe version better!!

Pixie Drive-In said...

Ok, I love the Kardashian girls and all, but their Bebe line is ridiculously overpriced!

They are both so stunning, but I'm going to have to go with the Shock btq. dress.
