Sunday Steals: Rebecca Taylor Striped Sailor Tee for Less

Lovers, to your left prepare to swoon over the ravishing Rebecca Taylor Striped Sailor Tee; to the right allow your kohl-rimmed peepers to take in Talbots’ tantalizing French Fair Stripe Tee.

Though the Talbots creation lacks the ribbon-tie back of the Taylor pretty; for a mere $39.50, in comparison to the $145.00 of its haute couture counterpart, it is every bit as capable of providing the frugalista’s wardrobe with a smidgen of natty nautical-ness, at a price that gives one the chance to splurge on all three shades (Navy/Ivory, Tangerine Frost/Ivory, and Pink Sand/Ivory)!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Rebecca Taylor, or be thrifty and spring for Talbots?


Fashionably yours!

They're both so similar, I'd go with Talbots.

I love both of these so much! I'd probably end up buying the Talbots one since they're so similar! I'm loving this stripe trend for spring. :]

Its easy to pay for haute Couture and look amazing or at least feel it, but the real skill is getting the haute couture look and still have the same/similar look, don't you think?

so the best choice would the Rebecca Taylor Striped Taylor Tee... in my humble opinion of course!

Good luck and tell us which one you went with in the end

Style Eyes said...

I love both of these tops but would definitely opt for the cheaper on this type of item.

Sarah said...

They look so much alike I have to go with the Talbots one! (:

ellie said...

That's a wonderful price from Talbots. The T to have, I'm sure. Love it in that Tangerine & Pink too!

molly said...

Oh, what a great trend. I'll probably have to wait on this. One, I just don't wear stripes. But its really a cool T. Thank goodness for Talbot.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Classic stripes - I'd definitely go for the Talbot's one!

meg said...

The cheaper one, most definitely.

I like the way the Talbot one fits.

Joanne said...

We're looking very Spring today :)

I like the Talbot's, I like the neckline better on it.

karen said...

I like the way the Rebecca Taylor tee hangs, but for something so basic--a striped tee--I'd opt for the Talbots version.

Krystal said...

Hazel said...

I love the darker hue of the Talbots one. That would be my choice. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend, E. :)

AH said...

Stripes are my favourite trend! I have so many. I love the Rebecca Talor one. it looks more nautical.

Cute shirt! B&W striped shirts are a classic piece that can go with ANYTHING. :)

Too cute!! Perfect top for a pair of jeans.

Mauimandy@The Grains of Paradise said...

I'm totally into these Nautical/French style shirts these days. I love pairing mine with some white capris and Jack Roger sandals....Classic Jackie O. Good thing it's always summer out here! Aloha:)

StyleID said...

Joanne Faith said...

I don't think I could bring myself to spend excessively on a striped shirt! (much like many others :P)

jess said...

They look similar but I'd get the Talbots shirt.

This is the perfect post, as I have already started amassing the necessary nautical pieces that are needed for this Spring's attire! I am all over the Talbot top. You can barely see the difference. Good find!

Clare said...

Although I always think of my mother when I think talbots I would def go with this. Although I already have a similar top from H&M in red :)

Kavery said...

The cheaper one for sure. No one will know!

Angelica Ng said...

I think it's so easy to find a striped tee that you really needn't spend too much on one. I might look for one with relatively nice fabric, but I wouldn't be willing to spend too much.

Grace said...

As much as I love Rebecca Taylor, I'd have to go for Talbots on this one. They are identical!

Rick said...

stripes have been the rage in recent months. I like the more frugal option given these looks are very similar and the Talbots option is more economical. great finds, Erika.

hope you are having a great Sunday!

The Talbots one will do just fine. =D

There is always something welcoming and cute about a simple stripped top! Talbots for sure! I love how versatile this cute top is :):)

I'd snag the Talbots one; the price is way more reasonable!

I prefer the cheaper one because if I buy the cheap one I'll be able to shop more.

Totally great T. Cool that you can get it at Talbots.
