Thrifty Thursday: Torn by Ronny Kobo Peasant Lace Long Skirt for a Steal

Darlings, in the left corner we have Torn by Ronny Kobo’s perfect Peasant Lace Long Skirt; to the right we have Forever 21’s luscious Lace Maxi Skirt.

While the Forever 21 pretty harbors one very slight difference – a hemline that is one-inch longer than the Torn by Ronny Kobo creation; for a mere $19.80, as opposed to the $194.00 required to add the classy Kobo to your closet, it is every bit as capable of adding a pinch of haute hippie whimsy to your wardrobe – at a price fit for the budget babe!

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 Forever 21 for the pictures.

I am not a long skirt fan. Neither.

TSF New Fashion said...

They both look so similar I am not sure that I could decide between them so I would go for the least expensive.

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

oh these are very similar. i guess i'd go with the F21 skirt since it's so inexpensive.

I freaking LOVE the F21 one!! It makes me realize I haven't been to the store in ages and that shocks and worries me. LOL. ;)

Sootjeelina said...

The skirts are both really pretty, but not really my style. But I'd definitely choose the Forever21, they are almost the same!
Btw, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, I really appreciate it

Omg I used to have a skirt like these! I wish I knew what happend to it...

I am happy to see that F21 sells longer stuff. I feel like most of their skirts and dresses are really short.

ellie said...

I love the Forever 21.

I am too small for these, but love them!

This is lovely. Yeah Forever 21!

Natasha said...

I love long peasant skirts. The F21 one is definitely one I want under my tree this Christmas.

Designer's Wifey said...

I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to wear with either of these skirts lol=P

kris said...

Both are great skirts. I love designer labels, but I shop at the Goodwill to find them. A recent purchase of mine, a Diane von Furstenberg blouse, retailed for $185 and it was on the runways. Bought it last week at a Goodwill in Marin while I was up North visiting family.

Thrift is a great way to get the designer labels for next to nothing! : )

I am not a maxi skirt fan, but I would def go with the Forever 21 one if I was.

Happy holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tights Lover said...

That is a gorgeous skirt. At the F21 price, it is a steal!

Sherin said...

Lace skirtsd are so lovely. Although, these are a tad too long than what I'm used to wearing. I do love the F21 one.

L'Amour et la Paix said...

They are identical! Don't know if I could pull off long skirts, but in any case I'd go with the Forever one! xo

Ruby Mines said...

Lovely find! I definetly prefer the F21 version not just because its cheaper but beacuse the Torn version has a several tiers and I think the classic maxi skirt silohuotte is more in fashion. Esp with a chunky sweater and one's favorite necklace. Great post as always :)

I don't think I would buy either skirt, yet it is sort of eery how similar the two are. Hope you are having a gorgeous day!

Josie said...

Pretty... But not for me. Long skirts just weigh me down!

not loving them but would love to send you the best wishes for Christmas and thank you for all the blog love!!!

I, for one, can't stand F21. Everytime I walk in, I want to run back out. Their pieces are so badly made! Sure, they might have fashionable styles, but they are made in such poor quality that they end up looking bad. This skirt here is no different. It looks horrible.
