The Look for Less - Casual Dress

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

Towards the end of the month I'm headed out out of town yet again. This time, it will be for some much needed R&R. Of course I plan on allowing myself a small purchase or two so I can travel in style ;-)

I did run across a really casual, simple dress that would look great over a swimsuit. However, the dress I like happens to exceed my budget :(





Stella McCartney Fine-knit drawstring dress
$785.00 www.net-a-porter.com

See how simple yet sophisticated it is. Stella is awesome at creating fab, clean lines with the experience of a Seville Row tailor. The silk material manages to be laidback and not too dressy, which is what I'm looking for. But alas, I am not going to dish out those duckies for a casual R&R trip.




Marc Jacobs Sandy Silk Dress
$138.00 (on sale) www.saksfifthavenue.com

Here is a worthy alternative that I found. Same silk material, drawstring waist, and brilliant hue. The cut of the dress is a little more dressy than I would want for my trip but that price is certainly alluring.



Paisley Tunic Dress
$14.99 (on sale) www.alloy.com

Finally, I ran across the above super affordable look for less. The waist is gathered, and the hue is slightly different, but overall, the look is comparable to the above two styles.




Hmmmm......which look for less should I choose for my mini getaway???







Arrivederci!
