Tightwad Tuesday: Black Halo Keyhole Ruffle Sheath Dress for Less

Mon doux, to the left take a gander at Black Halo’s haute Keyhole Ruffle Sheath Dress in Royal Blue – the very same marvel seen donned by Britney Spears, Aubrey O’Day, Debra Messing, Taraji P. Henson, and Lisa Rinna; to the right brace yourself for the beauty of Hybrid’s daring Dress with Deep V Neck and Frill Sleeves in Copper (also available in Plum) via ASOS.

While the luscious Hybrid is constructed out of a polyester / elastane blend, as opposed to the polyamide / viscose / lycra of the Black Halo beauty; for just $148.41, in comparison to the $349.00 needed to make the Keyhole Ruffle Sheath Dress a part of your flirty frock collection, it is the perfect compromise for the girl on a budget – and allows one to indulge in both glamorous jewel tones (Copper and Plum)!

So mes chéris, what are you up to today? Will your AmEx take a beating with a splurge, or will you stay safe and thrifty with a frugal buy?


Fashionably yours!

Thanks to REVOLVE and ASOS for the pictures.

Love the blue of Black Halo but I'm good with plum too, so I'd be quite happy with the ASOS dress!

I'd just love it in plum!

Awesome find! I had no idea. Great look.

mazzy may said...

Yeah! for Hybrid!

Joanne said...

Plum is such a great autumn color, I'd definitely go with the Hybrid, with just the right jacket as a topper.

I´m leaning more for the black halo. While both dress are gorgeous and very identical, blue is my darling. :)

London's-beauty said...

I would say that the black halo dress looks lovely. I just love the deep blue colour ^_^

Sherin said...

The keyhole front is a great look on the dress. I love the Black Halo one. It's such a beautiful colour.

The Asos dress is almost identical so I would definitely go with that although I LOVE the royal blue color of the other one!

You are the master at finding the cheaper version! I love me a good sheath dress. Love love the hybrid one!

You have an excellent eye Erika! I love this dress but might wait for the Black Halo to go on sale because I really love the color and I've noticed BH is on sale a lot on shopbop :)

I love both! I love the bold colors.

marina miouprincess said...

they are both great! I'd go for the Hybrid since i'm on a very tight budget these days but I'd opt for plum anyway even if I wasn't! xoxo

I don't think I'd ever heard of Hybrid before, but that dress is really pretty and at the right price.

Susu Paris Chic said...

I'd go blue!

Clare said...

Girl! This dress is the BEST! I LOVE that deep blue color. So so sooooo cuuute!

Grace said...

I like the color of the Black Halo a little better! It's hard to argue with the price, though.

meg said...

Such a fab dress..happy asos makes it.

Kavery said...

SO hard to choose since I love both colours a lot

ryan said...

I like the orange Asos one better anyways, so today I am being thrifty!

Fashion Tales.... said...

These are fantastic comparisons, I love the Black halo dress colour, but that Hybrid one is just as good and more affordable.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

it sucks that the asos version is made out of polyester, but it totally looks great and for a much better price. and i think this dress looks better on women with smaller busts.

Ruby Mines said...

I love black halo- what a good match. Even though Black Halo is technically knocking off each and every Victoria Beckham dress one by one.. God bless em.. ;)

you are seriously the best at finding DEALS. Way to go girl. I LOOOOVE this dress!

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I personally am in favor of the plum!

Schnappy said...

I like Hybrid dress, cool colour!:)

Karen said...

I love these dresses but I'd have to pass on both--the necklines are a tad too deep for my own comfort.

Diana said...

The colors on both are so beautiful and rich, the look is really chic and sexy too! Would go with the cheaper one...always! LOL!

Natasha said...

actually I never wear keyhole dresses. the thing is... my boobs aren't big enough for that dress :)
