Thrifty Thursday: Alice + Olivia Chevron Dress with Tie for Less

Darlings, to the left you will find Alice + Olivia’s pretty in pink Chevron Dress with Tie – the very same one seen donned by Elisabeth Hasselbeck during a taping of The View; to the right take a peek at the sassy Summer at the Hamptons Dress in Pink via Lulu*s.

While the lovely Lulu*s is ever so slightly shorter than its haute couture counterpart; for just $56.00, as opposed to the $368.00 needed to make the Alice + Olivia original your very own, it is every bit as capable of giving you a crisp, nautical, high fashion look year-round, at a price that doesn’t break the bank!

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 Shopbop and Lulu*s for the pictures.

Some of us need it slightly shorter anyhow. Wow, great find.

Joanne said...

I'm liking the Lulu's. With the shorter length, I think I'd use it as a tunic over a pair of black leggings :) Happy Thursday to you ...

Diane said...

Melanie's Randomness said...

oOOOOOOOoOO that dress is oh so pretty!! I usually have problems with the lengths of dresses so I'll go for the shorter less expensive one. They look soo similar it wouldn't bother me at all!! =)

Natasha said...

I definitely love the Lulu's dress. It's a little more fabulous than the Alice + Olivia. Have a happy Thursday.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

GPB is based on a book?!?! How did I not know this?!

You just totally made my day. No, wait, my month. :P

And I love this dress but I just cannot get over how IDENTICAL they are. It makes me wonder if designers like Alice + Olivia can sue over stuff like that...it's pretty much the same dress! Lol. In this case, it's a no brainer to get the Lulu's one! xo

AH said...
