Tightwad Tuesday: Roland Mouret Myrtha Folded Sheath Dress for Less

Lovers, in the left corner you will find Roland Mouret’s mesmerizing Myrtha Folded Sheath Dress in Black – the very same one seen donned by Kim Kardashian, and Kelly Rutherford a la Lily van der Woodsen on The CW’s Gossip Girl; to the right prepare to swoon over ASOS’ Ponti Pencil Dress with Pleat Neck in Black.

Though the ambrosial ASOS piece is constructed out of a viscose/nylon/elastane blend, as opposed to the wool/viscose/polyester mix of the ravishing Roland; for a mere $78.57, in comparison to the $1,995.00 required to take home its couture counterpart, it is a superlative way for the frugalista to snag a bit of star style – at a price that no budget babe can refuse!

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


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Bergdorf Goodman and ASOS for the pictures.

Definitely the Asos version. It is such a perfect classic LBD and the price is great.

Dancing Branflake said...

I adore this dress! I love the cute and length and it looks like the perfect LBD. Swoon!

Ashley said...

I'm so heading to ASOS right now to checkout that dress... gorgeous!

Natasha said...

Both of those dresses are too sexy and sleek. I would get the ASOS version but both would be perfect for my closet.

(It's sad that writers are tormented, isn't it? I try to avoid it, but my characters drive me crazy.)

Enjoy your Tuesday, darling.

I love this folded sheath dress and I lean more for Roland Mouret.

Great finds! :)

Kathryn said...

They're both beautiful (and nearly identical!), but I think I'd go for ASOS and be a tightwad (as usual) :)

Josie said...

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Definitely ASOS! 80 bucks is good for me, especially with all the other black dresses I have :)

Rick said...

both are hot; hence am persuaded to go with the ASOS dress, if I were stylist with someone's charge card :)

great picks, Erika!!

Punctuation Mark said...

nothing beats a LBD... especially when you find it at a good price!

pinkmate said...

both are almost the same to me. But of course if you're really into fabric you will choose Mouret! But in my case, for the big price difference, i will settle for ASOS :)

Oh my goodness, I love this dress!
I would definitely click right over to the ASOS website this second and scoop it up for myself if I knew I had a reason and occasion to wear it! xx

Sherin said...

I love that ASOS dress. I have an ASOS dress with the same neckline, but just a fuller skirt and it's so pretty.

Schnappy said...

Wonderful dress! I like it very much!:)

FashionJazz said...
