Tightwad Tuesday: Cheap Monday Adriana Long Skirt for a Steal

Lovers, to your left savor the sauciness that is Cheap Monday’s ambrosial Adriana Long Skirt; to the right take a gander at GoJane’s glamorous Sheer Paneled Maxi Skirt.

While the gorgeous GoJane gem is ever so slightly longer than the Cheap Monday marvel, harboring a length of 41.5 inches, as opposed to the 39 inches of Adriana; for just $27.60, in comparison to the $85.00 necessary to claim Cheap Monday’s masterpiece as your own, it provides one’s wardrobe with just as much sass as its higher priced pal – without breaking the bank!

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


Fashionably yours!

I really love the GoJane version, which is a little more opaque. Plus, $27.60 is such a great price. I hope you have a good Tuesday, E.

How cool. Hmmm...I'm short..so I probably wouldn't go with either. But they are very inspiring.

Joanne said...

I'll splurge with Cheap Monday. It seems to have more movement to it than the other, it'd be more fun to wear.

Love the new look here, Erika. You're keeping the blog stylin' :)

StyleID said...

They both look very pretty but at least on the picture I like the Go Jane more....

Not sure if I'm liking this style at all, so I think I would pass on both options :) Save the money for those Chloe shoes from the other day!

I think I like the longer length in these sorts of skirts, so I would go with the GoJane one. ♥

The Blonde Duck said...

Why does this totally remind me of hs?

Anita Abramyan said...

I say it doesn't hurt to own both! Perfect combination. This style has become very trendy recently, remember Halle Berry's stunning dress at the Golden Globes this year? We approve at www.anitaabramyan.com!

Angelica Ng said...

Love the length of the GoJane, but love the sheer of the Cheap Monday. A mix of the two would be nice! btw, nice new blog design!

D I N A B E L L A said...

Nice, isn't that similar to what Halle Berry wore at the golden globes? Hmm.. by the way.. lovin your new look!

ryan said...

I prefer the less expensive one this time around. Btw, cute redesign : ) xoxooxox

Clare said...

I am still on the fence about the sheer skirts. But I will buy this one to get on the bandwagon :)

karen said...

I love your new masthead! It's so fun and fitting. My personal style isn't drawn to sheer clothing, I do like Cheap Monday's hemline more than GoJane. But that could also be because I'm fairly short to begin with.

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

i'm liking the new blog layout luv! and these skirts are both really nice and similar.

meg said...

Its definitely on everyone's list to have this season. So great to see a cheaper version.

Emily said...

This is such a cute skirt! I love long flowy stuff like this. As always, you tempt me with your good deals Cafe Fashionista... Thanks for the heads up :)
