Thrifty Thursday: Joie Morning Dew Ribbed Sweater Leggings for Less

Darlings, to your left allow your eyes to take in the loveliness that is Joie’s Morning Dew Ribbed Sweater Leggings; to the right prepare yourself to fall in love with the marvelousness of Mossimo Supply Co.’s Rib Sweater Legging.

While the gray shade of the Mossimo’s is ever so slightly lighter than that seen upon the Joie pretties; for a mere $14.99, as opposed to the $198.00 price tag of the Joie gems, they are every bit as capable of keeping the wearer cozy, whilst ensuring that she looks très chic at the very same time – all while adhering to her frugalista budget!

So mes chéris, what are you up to today? Will your AmEx take a beating with a splurge, or will you stay safe and thrifty with a frugal buy?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Bloomingdale’s and Target for the pictures.

I like the Joie ones more. The cheaper version reminds me of thermal underwear.

Gotta love Target! Mossimo's items are really good quality too, if I can I usually get their brand over f21 or soemthing like that because it lasts pretty long :)Happy Thursday Erika!

Joanne said...

Leggings are kind of a fun addition to a wardrobe, not a real staple, so I'll be thrifty with these.

Fab find, darling!

Maddy said...

$200 is a bit excessive for leggings, so I'll have to pick the Mossimo ones. Enjoy the much-deserved break, Erika!! And good luck on the MBA. It's not a fun test though. When the time rolls around to start taking practice tests, I can hook you up with some. One of my many "jobs" is test proctoring for tutoring company. I have access to some of older versions of the GMAT. Let me know when you're ready to start practicing and I'll send you some :)

Oh and come visit us in NYC/NJ while you're on break ;o)

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

OK those Joie leggings are $200?? That's insane! Target to the rescue- great find :)

Tights Lover said...

I love leggings, but I'm going with the Mossimo's. At that price...maybe I'm going for multiple Mossimos!

Anaiz said...

No $200 leggings for me, Mossimo it is! :D

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

Valerie said...

I actually JUST saw these when I was at Target yesterday and debated about getting them. They're super cute in person too! I decided against it because I'm trying to ban myself from shopping for a while, but I like how you're thinking, Erika!

I like the textured look of the joie, but I would still go with mossimo, because it is leggings!

Those leggings look really cosy for the colder weather. I would definitely opt for the thrifty option.
