Sunday Steals: Robert Rodriguez Tiered Lace Skirt for Less

Darlings, in the left corner we have Robert Rodriguez’s tantalizing Tiered Lace Skirt; to the right you will spot Forever 21’s luxurious Tiered Lace Skirt.

While the piece of Forever 21 frippery features an elastic waistband, as opposed to the leather top band of the ravishing Robert Rodriguez; for a mere $17.80, in comparison to the $360.00 asking price of the Rodriguez, it is every bit as capable of adding a dash of romanticism to one’s wardrobe – at a price that is perfectly suitable 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 Zappos and Forever 21 for the pictures.

I like lace in only little, little ways. I just don't go for this style, so I'm passing on both today :/

Audrey Allure said...

Such a pretty skirt, love both!

I'd definitely go with Forever 21. I really think this would be a piece I could easily ruin..just because I'd be out in it with friends. Lets say I sat in sticky soda pop or well, some adventure..I'd be out big bucks with the other piece.

Both are beautiful! I think i might make the splurge on this one :)

Sarah said...

I love Forever 21 and that skirt! (:

Marrisa said...

If I wasn't on a part-time high school retail salary, I would definitely go with the Robert Rodriguez one. I feel like the Forever one would fall apart. But under the circumstances, I would have to go with the one I can afford at this point :).

J Crew also has a really cute one on sale right now.

Sherin said...

Such pretty skirts! They look perfect for every occassion. Absolutely love the F21 one.

lucy and sarah said...

I would so go for the Forever 21.

Liz said...

These pieces definitely look a lot alike, but I'm going to have splurge on this one and go with the Robert Rodriguez one today!

She is Sara said...

F21 for sure! What a cuuuuute skirt too! Gotta love lace!

Natasha said...

Definitely the Robert Rodriguez skirt. Haha, just kidding. I would get the Forever 21 skirt, but only if it fits.

Maddy said...

Even though the F21 skirt looks identical to the Rodriguez skirt, I bet the lace is MUCH nicer in the Robert Rodriguez skirt!

meg said...

This is so pretty, I'm really glad you can find it at Forever 21.

Rick said...

Both are nice but, the Forever 21 piece is the way to go here for the price. No question on this one :)

la petite fashionista said...

i own wayyy too much lace. i cant stop buying it! it's just so pretty and feminine

Meg said...

They're very similar. The lace looks a bit nicer on the Rodriguez, but you can't beat the F21 price.

modanista junkie said...

OMG looks exactly the same!!! I'm going to go with F21 because it can totally pass for the Robert Rodriguez skirt. I would totally lie and say it is. Lol. :)

molly said...

So sweet. Just what everyone needs. Yeah, for Forever 21!

better days said...

Thank goodness! for Forever 21!

ryan said...

I would go for the F21 piece, it's trendy, and I wouldn't wear it enough to justify the price. I would probably wear it out for drinks and stuff, and the F21 looks close enough to me : )

Josie said...

I adore when I find pretty, on-trend pieces at Forever21. This skirt is perfection -- so sweet!

I can trade the leather band for the elastic one with no problem.
They are both very cute

Dina's Days said...

They are very similar! The elastic waistband can be a little awkward sometimes, for the price I'll take it!

Kristin said...

The F21 version will do just fine!

D. Marie said...

So adorable!!! I love the lace! My stepdaughter just got a skirt like this one and she loves it! :)
