This morning I found a whole slew of Rebecca Taylor dressed in my inbox, thanks to Bloomingdale's. But the dress
on the left stood out to me. I love the simple, yet elegant cut. I love the flowiness of the silk fabric. The color is fun and can transition from spring to summer to fall. And I love the buttons, which add a touch of whimsy and keep the dress current and on trend (I'm really into the whole button-down skirt/dress look this season). I don't
love its price of $345. While the dress is pretty versatile and classic, I just don't think it's worth that. Plus, it's pretty much against my nature to buy things at full price.

exclusive to Bloomie's
My first thought was to search for this dress to see if it was on sale anywhere else. Unfortunately, the dress is exclusive to Bloomingdale's. And it's a new style. Not going on sale anytime soon. However, it's a safe bet that the moment it does, yours truly is buying it! That may be awhile though, so what to do in the meantime? Easy...find a cheaper version!
I'll be honest with you, I didn't find anything I like quite as much, but I did find a great alternative to hold me over for a bit. Where did I find it, you ask? Well, at my trusty, go-to place for cheap and trendy--Forever 21. I know it's not a secret, but that store is wonderful when you're looking to latch on to a trend, but don't want to commit too much money. And I have to say, while it's no match for the RT dress, I actually really do like the F21 version. It's a "silk-blend," and like the RT dress, has buttons down the front. The cut and color are different, but that just means when I do get the RT dress, I can still wear the F21! The other major difference between the two dresses are their prices. The Forever 21 dress is $29.80. So basically, I could buy 11 of the Forever 21 dresses for the price of the Rebecca Taylor dress, and still have change left over. But, that's just the beauty of Forever 21 I guess.
Anyway, Rebecca Taylor dress-- get ready, because you'll be mine soon enough!
