Tightwad Tuesday: Stella McCartney Puff-Shouldered Lace Jacket for Pennies

Kitty cats, to the left take a gander at Stella McCartney’s pretty Puff-Shouldered Lace Jacket – the very same one seen worn by Victoria Beckham, Rachel McAdams, and Anouck Lepere (in the pages of Vogue); to the right feast your eyes on Shock Boutique’s Lace & Bead Jacket.

Though the Shock Boutique piece features a faux-silk nude background, as opposed to the off-white true silk underlay of the stellar Stella; for just $84.00, in comparison to the $3,365.00 price tag of the McCartney marvel, it is just as capable of casting a ladylike glow upon your wardrobe – at a price that no frugal fashionista could ignore!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this terrific Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Thanks to Net-A-Porter and Shock Boutique for the pictures.

It has to be Stella's jacket, nothing any less than the best.

Joanne said...

Lace is so in right now, and I like seeing hints of it. The subtle look of lace in the McCartney piece works for me, so it's Stella this Tuesday :)

Krystal said...

This is such a feminine jacket. I love them both but $3,365 is like 4 months rent so I'll take Shock Boutique. :)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Gorgeous look, I love either one.

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh my goodness! This is the perfect holiday piece! An essential, I dare say. The cheaper one looks real nice and I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Anaiz said...

Oooh that is a cute jacket, Shock Boutique for me! :D

She is Sara said...

Omg this ROCKS!! I would, knowing me, go for the cheaper, but it is a perfect replica! This is the perfect mix of classic and rocker-chic!!

Tasha Gregson said...

Love this!! It's amazing how close the less expensive one is to the stella, but if I had to choose stella all the way :) xx

Yvonne said...

OMG!! I LOVE THIS!! I don't have $3300 for a jacket so I guess I would have to go the way of the $84 copycat. What a great find!!

I LOVE lace right now and these are a great match, but I have to go with the Stella -- it's just too easy for lace to look cheap!

I'd have to see it up close but the shock boutique version looks very nice! I agree though that there are many levels of quality for lace so I'd want to really examine it. Love, love lace!
