Thrifty Thursday: Moschino Polka-Dot Silk Shorts for a Steal

Dolls, to the left plant your pretty peepers upon Moschino’s pretty Polka-Dot Silk Shorts; to the right brace yourself for the retro glamour of GUESS’ darling Dana Shorts.

While Moschino’s pretty Polka pair are constructed out of 100% silk, as opposed to the 100% rayon of GUESS’ Dana; for a mere $59.00, in comparison to the $525.00 required to add Moschino’s magnificent resort style to your wardrobe, they are le perfect alternative for the girl on the budget – and an absolute necessity for beating the heat in style this summer!

Tell me, lovers…is this the moment where you’ll cave for Moschino, or save with GUESS?


Fashionably yours!

Too cute! I'd go with the guess, you can barely tell the difference anyway.
Mmmmm... I'd love these with a pretty white blouse, wooden wedges and a straw sunhat.

The Favour Shoppe said...

GREAT find!! They look so similar!

Joanne said...

I'd be saving with these, but by not buying either :/ Oh wow, these are so not my style. They're cute, but I'm taking a pass ...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Very cute!

ellie said...

oh my..that must be real silk at that price. They are so cool, but I might just have to look at both of these from afar.

I'm glad you found them at a cheaper price.

lucy and sarah said...

Adorable. Still not sure I'd pay that price for the cheaper one, either. But this is trend setting.

briannelee said...

At those prices, def the Guess!

Diana said...

These are so adorable! Love the polka dots!! Hope you have a lovely day my friend! <3

molly said...

Sweet find. Like a sign of spring.

Megan said...

i have a love/hate relationship with polka dots...some seasons i love them, some i hate them. right now they are totally appealing, but i dont think id spend loads of money on them...so GUESS ones for SURE!

Krystal said...

Ruby Mines said...

P.S. Totally agree with you on DVF!

stilettodiaries said...

You read my mind! I bought this fabulous canary yellow bag yesterday, and I was planning on buying something polka-dot to go with it. These shorts are perfect!

StyleID said...

I stay with Guess ones.
They can make a great outfit if you mix it properly.

Haute World said...

Very cute, but the Moschino are definitely not worth the high price tag (even if it's silk). I'd go for the Guess!

phyllis said...

Those shorts are cute. However, I don't know if I'd go with either of them. I have a slight thing against shorts in which I don't wear them because I have chicken legs and I only wear designs on my shirts. Hope you have a good Thursday, E. :)

meg said...

Love these! So glad you found these at a better price for us.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

These shorts are ADORABLE!! I can't believe summer is right around the corner and we're already talking about shorts! :)

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

Fun find! Love me some polka dots. xx

Dancing Branflake said...

$500 for shorts? I better look like Kate Moss in them. Actually, I don't wear shorts anyway so nevermind. But man! That's a lot for such little fabric.

chaoskontrolowany said...

So cute shorts;)

Tights Lover said...

Love these shorts, but I'm gonna save with the guess. $525 is a bit tough to swallow, right?

Plus...I can't get silk shorts before I get silk stockings...what would you all think of me? :)

Cafe Pasadena said...

It's not exactly a polkadot bikini but it will do!

Anna Gray said...

Oh my word, those are adorable! Polka Dots = <3

My Heart Blogged said...

Those are so cute, and would look awesome with tights under them.

Too cute! I can barely tell the difference so I'd have to go with Guess.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

ooo silk does feel so nice so this is a hard one but I guess, again, for a trendy piece like this that I wouldn't wear TOO much that it would be better to go cheaper. Silk is so nice though... such a shame to not be an heiress!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

I like the ones by Guess!

Clare said...

If it is polka dots I am SOLD! Love all polka dots.... no matter the price :)

Angelica Ng said...

Hm, Guess I guess. ;) Even though I do like the sound of 100% silk...

better days said...

Such a cool find!

ivy's closet said...

These look great for the season. Glad there is a cheaper version out there.

Jamie said...

These are SO CUTE!! I would definitely be thrifty thought. I don't think I would wear them enough to warrant the Moschino price tag!

I love and adore polka dots with all of my <3, but I'm not really liking either pair...

They look so cute, but not my style. If I had to choose though, definitely the Moschino ones.
