I truly adore the luxurious fashion inspiration that is Anthropologie. However with Anthropologie (and other such style makers) I swoon often but buy rarely, due to the disparity between my eyes and my pocket book. So I have decided to be a “smarty pants” and be smart about buying my pants! And dresses, and skirts, and blouses… you get the picture. I want show that fun, fresh, feminine style doesn’t have to suffer under a sane budget.
Okey doke, here is Anthroplogie’s absolutly charming Cirque A-Line dress. Elephants! I love it! Honestly, I love anything with animal figures being that my first fashion love was a knit dress with scotty dogs all over it when I was 5… Anywho, the pleating details are also very flattering and the contrasting sash makes it a signature Anthro piece. However, it is $148, which certainly out-prices me.
But lookey here, at Kohls of all places I came across this lovely look a like. It is from the Lauren Conrad collection and features the same pleated sweetheart neckline, animal print, and sash. And priced at $64, now on sale for $44.80, Yes!
I’ll do the math for ya, the whole outfit is still $9.20 cheaper than the Anthro dress. What do you think? I for one, am ready for autumn!
