Sunday Steals: Elizabeth and James Sequined Sweatshirt for Less

Lovers, in the left corner we have Elizabeth and James’ stunning Sequined Sweatshirt – the very same topper donned by both Miley Cyrus and Twilight’s Dakota Fanning; in the right corner you will find EXPRESS’ saucy Sequin Raglan Sweatshirt.

While the sequin embellishment seen on the EXPRESS piece is slightly more shimmery than those showcased on the elegant Elizabeth and James; for a mere $59.90, as opposed to the $311.99 one would require to take home the couture counterpart, it is an ideal way for the fashionista to sparkle year-round – at a price fit for the budget babe!

Now the question remains…will you be thrifty, or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to PIPERLIME and EXPRESS for the pictures.

I think I would actually get the Express version, since it's a sweatshirt. They're both very pretty, though.

Oh my gosh!!! This is gorgeous! I am not lusting over one myself. . . my bank account loves you.. .
I think I prefer the Elizabeth And James one simply because it is subtle and looks softer and better quality!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

EXPRESS, they look similar enough. I really like this top and the way the model rocks it.

I've sort of been wanting one of these for awhile now--maybe last year when J crew did a cashmere version...so tempting! I know it's probably the most impractical buy ever, but I like the Eliz James one better :)
