Buy This, Not That

Forever 21
Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent

I have a major crush on almost every Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent dress, and this ruffled number is no exception. It's so feminine and pretty without being overly girly. When I found the Forever 21 dress, I couldn't believe how similar they were! I think I even like the navy color better in this. What are you eyeing for summer?

Wow I agree, almost identical!
I saw the Cynthia dress on Gilt Groupe a few weeks ago and thought it was an adorable style.

What an amazing find! I do like the purple but the F21 dress is so cute! Any sweet, casual dress has caught my eye for summer.

I love them both but would definitely buy the forever 21 as I probably wouldn't consider the ruffles to be a classic I could pull off for long.

Anna Jane said...

I think I actually like the F21 version better because of the cinched waist...you could easily dress it down.

Love it!

They're practically identical! I'd definitely go for the F21 version. I'm eyeing some easy dresses for Summer, and pops of bright color in accessories. Also really dying for some louboutins!

The navy dress is wonderful :) It's impressive how things can look alike, but be extremely different in price.
