Thrifty Thursday: Autumn Cashmere Ribbed Draped Cardigan for Less

My loves, to your left you will find Autumn Cashmere’s utterly ambrosial Ribbed Draped Cardigan; to the right, let your pretty peepers take in the sight that is Mossimo Black’s ravishing Rib Open Cardigan Sweater.

Though the Mossimo Black marvel lacks the cashmere construction of the Autumn Cashmere piece, instead finding itself crafted out of 100% acrylic; for just $27.99, in comparison to the $264.00 asking price of the original, it is an oh-so cozy way of adding a new knit to your wardrobe – at a price that won’t make you forsake your beloved daily trips to Starbucks!

Will Autumn Cashmere tempt you into being a big spender, or will Mossimo Black inspire you to save?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Neiman Marcus and Target for the pictures.

I always opt for the cheaper version, especially from Target, I adore that store! I've been so busy saving for grad school, it's the only choice I have... last week though, I finally got a new pear of over the knee black boots from Target, on sale for $25! Gotta love it! <3

Cute cute cute! I want to go to Target. I need face wash so I'll just have to meander over to the clothing section (like I do every time!)

She is Sara said...

Erika, those are so cute! They look like little cozy blazers! That qualifies as office clothing that I would wear :)

Anaiz said...

Oooh I love both! Next time I am in Target I will make sure to find this sweater :D

Ebony said...

I'd go for target. I love cashmere against bare skin, but since I'd have to wear a top underneath because of the open front, it's not necessary.

Target, for sure. It's my favorite store.

ellie said...

I love both, but do love how the Autumn Cashmere one is a bit thicker and looks cozier.

Ohhh another amazing find!! Though the look is identical, I would splurge on cashmere because the feel of cashmere is sooo worth it.

Margaux. said...

I love these kind of sweaters. I'd probably go for the save, my sweaters always end up kind of beaten up anyway.

Draped cardigans are so flattering on any body shape. I bought 2 of them already this season from Express. Gray and navy blue. Excellent find.

Fashion Court said...

Midtown Girl said...

Such a great look for Fall - the Autumn Cashmere is luscious <3

LIFESTYLE said...

I like the fitting of the Mossimo Black. It looks elegant than Autumn Cashmere and definitely the Mossimo Black is affordable.
