Sunday Steals: Splendid Vintage Whisper Cotton Tank for Less

Lovers, to the left you will find Splendid’s saucy Vintage Whisper Cotton Tank in Neon Yellow; to the right plant your pretty peepers upon Forever 21’s fabulous Racerback Tank in Neon Yellow.

Though the Forever 21 pretty is constructed out of standard 100% Cotton, as opposed to the 100% Supima Cotton that makes up Splendid’s version; for just $9.80, in comparison to the $44.00 required to snag a splash of Splendid for your wardrobe, it is every bit as capable of adding a pretty pop of color to your desired look du jour - at a price that allows the budget babe to indulge in both haute hues (Neon Yellow and Neon Orange), and still have enough spare change for an impromptu Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino® Blended Beverage from Starbucks!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Splendid, or be thrifty and spring for Forever 21?


Fashionably yours!

Well, since we're throwing a Frappuccino into the mix, I'll definitely choose the F21, and enjoy every bit of that Frap :)

Audrey Allure said...

Such a great color! I do love the flowiness of the Splendid one a lot more :)

Grace said...

I must say Splendid--their knits are sooo soft!

AH said...

f21, definitely! beautiful colour!

Lux and Stan said...

So great to see this at Forever 21. I notice Target has a maxi dress with this sleeveless look, too.

Style with Benefits said...

For basic staples, I'd def. go with the F21 one! Big fan of racerback tanks!

Hope you've been well, E! Catching up on your blog now.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I'd stick with the F21 option.

Claire Kiefer said...

More and more, I've been complimenting people on items that turn out to be from Forever 21. I haven't been in a long time; I think I need to make a trip for some summer pretties!

M said...

Thank God for F21... I get so much stuff there that it's ridiculous. The trick is really to pair it with more expensive items and no one will realize the dress you just complimented costs no more than 20 bucks! I would go cheap in this case too - lemon yellow is cute for summer! :)

Sherin said...

Bright coloured tanks are gorgeous. They'll go so well with brightly coloured trousers as well. I love the F21 one. The colour is more subtle.

jess said...

I like the forever 21 piece.

She is Sara said...

Oh I always love these tank tops! They look really cute tucked in sometimes :) And you can't beat F21 prices!

Kavery said...

Splendid is a great brand but for a layering staple like this I'd buy the cheaper one!

Fashion Tales.... said...

I love tanks with layering or alone. great comparison.. of course F21 has this one! :)

Drizzle said...

$44 for a yellow T-Shirt. Ridiculous.

oh i love the colour..it's just as fresh as lemon..
alhough with high price we can get high quality too, but if we can find the cheper one, it will be better. :)

Angelica Ng said...

For a simple tank like this, F21 is good enough. And the difference in fabric...even I could deal with that! :D
