Pretty Pricey vs. Cheaply Chic: Dolce & Gabbana Lace-Trimmed Silk-Blend Dress

So, I haven't really done one of these types of posts, in a while, but when I saw this dress, I just knew I had to include it somewhere in the blog. It's a beautiful Dolce & Gabbana dress, that I just love! It's elegant and feminine, with an obvious romantic feel to it, but for $2,540 at Net-A-Porter, it's a hefty price to pay.

So, here it is:

Dolce & Gabbana- Lace-Trimmed Silk-Blend Dress
Don't you just love the lace detailing, and the sheerness at the top? :)

Okay, so I'll be honest, none of the "Cheaply Chic" versions of this dress are super close to looking like the actual one, but I'd like to think, that they could have been "inspired" by this dress, and they all have some qualities similar to the Dolce & Gabbana one. Regardless, I still think, that they are good options for ways to get a look similar, to the Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Yumi- Dress with Frill Strap
This first option, is a dress by Yumi, and is priced at $48.27 at ASOS.

 This second choice, below, is a dress by Oasis, and is priced at $50. There is a shorter version of this dress that(because it is shorter) is a little more like the Dolce & Gabbana dress, but it appears to be out of stock for good.

Oasis- Bow Lace Maxi Dress

 This third and last selection, is from Dress Barn and only costs $39.99.
Dress Barn- Lace Bodice Cocktail Dress with Pleating

Hope you enjoyed today's post, there'll be more to come! :)
