Thrifty Thursday: Black Halo Classic Jackie O Dress for Less

Lovers, to the left we have Black Halo’s tres chic Classic Jackie O Dress; to the right we have ModCloth’s sassy Style Me Now Dress.

Though the Style Me Now Dress is a nautical navy hue, as opposed to the black shade of the haute Halo; for a mere $64.99, in comparison to the $345.00 needed to add the Black Halo beauty to your flirty frock collection, it allows one to add presidential style to their wardrobe – on a frugalista budget!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Black Halo, or be thrifty and spring for ModCloth?


Fashionably yours!

AMAZING find! but I am so not the big spender! definitely the $64.99 is more in my range :) have a great day!

Natasha H. said...

I really like the ModCloth version. That Navy Blue is awesome, as is the shorter hemline. Have a good day, E.

Ebony said...

It'd have to be the Black Halo. I can't imagine channeling Jackie O on a budget. Better fabric and the longer hemline is a necessity.

OMG!! I heart you!! I've been eyeing this Halo Dress since I saw Amanda wear it on Ugly Betty! Not to mention, I love how the Halo dresses look on pear-shaped gal (like America Ferrera)! So I'm stoked that you found a less expensive alternative!!!

BTW - You will get your magazine one day! You have what it takes! xoxo

Rachel said...

Both of these dresses are so classic and gorgeous. But I'm gonna go with the ModCloth one because of the shorter hemline! :)

ellie said...

That's a great price for that Halo dress. Just what's needed for all those party-times and what not.

Rocio said...

Definitely the Mod Cloth; the price is totally reasonable=)

such a sweet dress for so many occasions. I'd go for the cheaper one. of course.

Joanne said...

Definitely the Black Halo on this one. For me, I think it looks much better with that longer length. And it's a classic piece, a definite staple in the wardrobe.
