Buy This, Not That

Splendid Lace Tank $47
Joie Drew B All Over Lace Tank $158

After yesterday's post about all things lace, I couldn't help but feel like I needed to add a bit more of it to my wardrobe. When I found this Splendid tank in a buttery cream color, I had to buy it! I do appreciate the scalloped edges of the Joie tank, but I obviously preferred the price of the Splendid top. I'll post an outfit in it once it arrives. Which one would you choose? I hope you all have a terrific long holiday weekend!

I love the Splendid lace top! It is so neutral, and would go with so much - dressed up or down! Happy Early 4th to you!

Connie @ Sogni e Sorrisi said...

Splendid top is mighty attractive because of the price tag, although I do like the scalloped bottom of the Joie top.

Josie said...

The Joie one is pretty, but I love the color of the Splendid one -- plus, it has a pocket!

WALK THE SAND said...

I have to agree - the scalloped edges are so GORGEOUS. But the price tag on the other is more tempting!

Love these kinds of posts. it's crazy how similar in looks they are but it's quite a different price indeed.

At a third of the price Splendid is a strong contender. Wishing you a wonderful long weekend! xoxo
