Tightwad Tuesday: Alice + Olivia Box Pleat Leather Skirt for Less

Lovers, in the left corner you will find Alice + Olivia’s blissful Box Pleat Leather Skirt; now, if you’ll be so kind as to shift your pretty kohl-rimmed peepers to the right, you will find Forever 21’s luscious Leatherette Skirt.

While the fabulous Forever 21 find is constructed out of faux leather, as opposed to the true leather of the Alice + Olivia gem; for a mere $15.80, in comparison to the $396.00 required to make the Box Pleat Leather Skirt your own, it is every bit as capable of allowing one to show off their glorious gams in style – without breaking the bank!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this tantalizing Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!

I´m for the practical side. You wouldn´t really see much of difference from a distance. <lovely skirt. :)

Joanne said...

Interesting to see a leather skirt in pleats. Usually I only see them as more of a straight skirt.

molly said...

Love the Forever 21 find.

I love this skirt and I am going to F21 today :-) :-)
both are cute but I can definitely save my pennies (well, many, many pennies in this case) and go for the F21 one.

Dancing Branflake said...

I'd love a leather skirt in brown also.

Oh, and I totally agree with your comment on today's post. Very insightful.

Tights Lover said...

Oh my. I. Love. That. Skirt.

As much as I'd love to spring for the A&O, I think F21 is just a bit more in my budget!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

ah yes, thank you! been looking for a pleated "leather" skirt in my price range :)

AH said...

i like the fact that the f21 skirt looks less shiny! great find, as usual:)

Maddy said...

I bet if you saw those two up close, the leather would win hands down! Pleather could never compete with the real thing :)

Sherin said...

A leather skirt is definitely on my must have list for AW. They look great. I love the F21 one. So much more affordable.

meg said...

So fantastic! I'm so happy about Forever 21.

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

Man, both of those are great! I really dig Alice + Olivia, though. Might have to save for something from 'em one of these days.

I'd actually been wanting a skirt like this, but I had no idea where to look! I might have to snap that Forever 21 one up!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Alice & Olivia- good investment piece :)

FashionJazz said...

I want both of them!! Happy Wednesday babe xx

Marina said...

Great find!! I could never afford that price!

Laura said...

Another nearly perfect match!!

Schnappy said...

I like Alice collection, because I like this shoes!:)

Cafe Pasadena said...

Well, the Olivia does look more leathery while the 4Evah 21 does look like it was artificially made. But is it worth 25 times more than the 4E21??

Oh to Be a Muse said...

F21 does it again. very great deal!

Natasha said...

I like short skirts :) Only $16... Now that's a bargain! :)
