Thrifty Thursday: Vince Crop Sweater for a Steal

Lovers, on the left we have Vince’s gorgeous Crop Sweater in Ivory; to the right, feast your eyes upon the glamour that is the GAP's Cable Knit Sweater in New Natural.

Though it’s obvious that the fabulous GAP piece is slightly different in the sense that it features a more boatneck-esque neckline than the original; for just $44.99, in comparison to the $285.00 price tag of the Vince marvel, it is the perfect way to add a dash of cozy to your couture on the cheap wardrobe – at a price that is simply magical for the frugalista’s wallet!

Now the question remains…will you be thrifty, or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!

Hey Girl!

Almost the weekend! I love the Gap one, it looks a lot more comfortable than the Vince one. I could use that sweater in this cold weather! Stay warm! <3

Couture Carrie said...

Oh E this is such and amazing find! I actually like the Gap sweater more than the Vince because it doesn't have those side vents!
Thanks, darling!

Definitely the Gap version. I like that it's a little boxier than the Vince Crop Sweater and it's something I can either wear around the house or outside during the last few weeks of Winter. Hope you have a good Thursday, E.

I've always had great luck at THE GAP.

Oh my, love this sweater! Would look so great paired with a maxi skirt. I'd go for the Gap one, though I do prefer the Vince sweater due to the neckline. But who has nearly 300 bucks to spend on a sweater?! For that money, I'd splurge on shoes. :)

The Gap sweater is too cute!

Frozen Fashion said...

The Gap for me because the neckline would flatter allowing me to wear it better.

I like the sweater. I hope I could also have one like that since I'm really addicted to fashion, especially that I'm fond of collecting stuff like that.

spendthrift cap for me... the vince one looks lovely!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

This might be the first time I actually prefer the more expensive one, only because I love that lovely thick cable detail down the middle. Just wish it didn't have those side vents. I'd take either though! Wonderful find as always!

I love these sweaters, white sweater are really great for winter! And the two are really nice, I quite like the GAP one better because the neckline is lower, and that usually looks better on me

Really like the GAP sweater. I've been really happy with their last few seasons after what seemed like an endless line of misses!

I love knitted sweaters. They're so warm! I'm a huge fan of GAP, so I'm definitely picking that one.

Gap. I've always loved boatneck necklines.

FASHIONWITHP said...

I'll stick with vince on the right.
It is very nice, and you have chosen with great taste!

Kiss :)

Soho500 said...

I'm loving the Gap sweater. But I would bet that the Vince sweater feels better!

Rachel said...

Erika, you must have read my mind because I've been eyeing that Vince sweater for a while now! It's perfection! But a bit too pricy... I love the Gap version. I'm gonna have to check it out! :)

Liz said...

I'm going to have to vote for the Gap sweater this time! I like the more oversized feel of it, and it looks much more comfortable!

Rachel said...

Gap! The price really seals it for me...and they look nearly identical anyhow. :D

StyleID said...

I absolutely love the Vince one. I love how the sweater has the 2 'openings' at the end at as opposed to the classic Gap cut.
Nice find!

Both are lovely!

MarchMusings said...

The Gap one says 'winter' like nothing else. I love chunky knits.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

I'm loving the Gap sweater!

Fashionography. said...

If I could afford to spend nearly $300 dollars on a sweater, I would probably just get them both :) But seriously, I think I like how the GAP version seems just perfectly slouchy. :)

Grace said...

That Gap sweater is lovely! I actually like the hem of it a bit more.

Emily said...

loving the gap sweater!

xoxo

My Heart Blogged said...

Wow I really like the one from the GAP. You are so good at this, too bad Vogue won't give you an article like this every month. I think the readers would be in shock.

Haute World said...

Regardless of the price, I actually prefer the Gap one, because it's more slouchy and doesn't look as stiff.
