Tightwad Tuesday: Tibi Sequin Blazer on a Budget

Lovers, back in November of 2009 I introduced you to Tibi’s tantalizing Sequin Blazer as part of a Café Fashionista Tightwad Tuesday post; but with the season of sparkle upon us, I felt that it was high time to revisit the spectacular piece – with an even more fabulous look-alike version for the frugalista!

In the left corner, take a peek at Tibi’s Sequin Blazer, sparkling in all of its haute couture glory; in the right corner, allow your pretty peepers to savor the twinkling decadence that is Shock Boutique’s Sequin Blazer in Black – a similar style of which has been seen gracing the form of everyone’s favorite stylist, one Ms. Rachel Zoe.

While the Shock Boutique beauty proffers a more feminine fit than the tempting Tibi; for a mere $54.00, in comparison to the $598.00 needed to take the Tibi home, it is the preemptive piece to add to your wardrobe if you’re looking to add a little shimmer to your style – at a price that no glamorous gal could possibly refuse!

Are you having a tightwad moment darlings, or are you plagued with a craving to splurge?


Fashionably yours!

I'm going to spend the money for The Tibi blazer. I like that it's longer. Have a happy Tuesday.

While I like the fit of the Shock Boutique blazer just a little bit more, the Tibi blazer offers a longer length and those super cute (and convenient) pockets. Tibi wins for me hands down. :)

I love, love blazers of any kind. They put just the right polish on an outfit. I'm leaning toward the Shock blazer here, mostly because it looks more fitted, which I prefer.

Rick said...

both look great, Erika and I can picture a lady sporting both at an early New Years celebration. but since she would only likely wear it on festive occasions and not as often, I'd suggest being a tightwad this time around! Great finds!

Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

I've been eyeing that Tibi blazer!!! You know me too well, my friend! :) I think I might look into that Shock version though -- it's still sparkly like the Tibi... but on "sale!" Thanks ;)

I wouldn't mind the cheapie version of this look. They're both fabulous!

They're both very, very tempting, but if I could, I'd do the Tibi for the extra length!

The Shock Boutique blazer is gorgeous. I think I'd prefer that one even without the much smaller price tag!

Thank goodness for Shock Boutique!

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

um are you serious? The Shock Boutique Blazer gives you the same look for only 54?! Wow. What a steal! xo

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

I was just looking at the black sequin blazer at J. Crew and of course the Tibi is a much better price and could easily be altered for a tigher fit! Love!!! Thank you dear for your great alternative deals!

xoxo Mary Jo

fashion provocateur said...

blazers are everywhere this season and sequins is HUGE so why not put them together.!! perfect i love finding "goodies" that are half the price but looks exactly the same.

Sherin said...

Anyone in a sequin blazer would look amazing at Christmas parties. They're really similar, so I'm going to have to go with Shock Boutique.

Angel.Pearls said...

I like the one from shock boutique because it's more fitted whilst the other one is more loose ^_^

The Blonde Duck said...

Sequins are always fabulous!

meg said...

I'm so glad there is one affordable.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Shock Boutique please! I appreciate the feminine fit. I can't pull of anything "boyfriend".

briannelee said...

$600 is def steep so I would have to go w/ the thrifty version in this case :)

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

They look so fabulous - but I definitely like the Shock one better. It's so fabulous and holiday-ish. And I like the way it's styled better.

WOOHOOO!

Grace said...

Haha, to be honest, I can't really see myself wearing a sequined blazer. If I did though, I'd go for the cheaper one!

style'n said...

Shock for sure! I want one of these!!!

ediot said...

nice picks. i actually like the shock boutique one the most. would like a blazer like that actually..

Style with Benefits said...

While I do prefer the Tibi one due to the longer length, I'm not going to really wear a sequin blazer on a daily basis... probably only every so often. That's why the Shock Boutique one would def. fulfill the sequin blazer need and the cost is the best part! Great post, Erika!

xx, becs
