The Look For Less x 2

I am pretty sure you have all seen this Tibi Maxi Skirt all over Pinterest and the blogasphere lately. I love it, really do but $495 for a skirt is ridiculously expensive. There is no way I am going to pay that.
TIBI ARIZONA PLEATED SKIRT, $495



I came across this skirt from Anthropolgie. The pattern is different, and yeah I probably like the Tibi pattern better, but this skirt is a 1/3 the price of the Tibi skirt and the style is pretty much exactly the same. I actually really like the color blocking on the Anthro skirt.

Another item I have been stalking is the Celine Colorblock Tote. Sadly, at $2000+ that purse will never be mine!



I found this super cute similar version at Old Navy. I know I am shocked too, but Old Navy has been killing it this year with their line! First the sailboat blouse and now these totes. This purse is truly a fraction of the cost of the Celine Tote. It was orginally $29 but it is one sale right now for $17.80. Heck I would almost buy two for that price. They are faux leather so I think they would be adorable beach totes because they would be easy to clean!

    I bought the Tibi Arizona skirt but wound up returning it even with the slight discount that I was given at Tibi online. The price was too much. LOVE the colorblock version from Anthro though! May have to look into that.

    The Tibi skirt is very pretty. But I am with you. There is no way I would pay full price for it. Maybe it will go on sale in a month or so? I really like that first Old navy bag! So cute!!

    Old Navy also had a great maxi dress that had pleating all the way down it. It's not online but i saw it in the Mt P Store this weekend. I wanna say $40 or so… I am LOVING what they are producing this year.

    I like the Anthro version better too but I could never get away with wearing a long pleated skirt. I may need to run in to Old Navy – those bags are great – add a beach towel and it would make a great Mother's Day gift for a friend!

    I love this Tibi pattern, too, but no way am I paying the price for it. I do like the Anthro one. I've got to make a trip to Old Navy, I've seen lots of cute things from there lately. I saw some totes at Asos a while back that were similar to these.

    I am loving the alternatives you found! Both are equally chic and beautiful! Great job, Natalie. 🙂

    That Old Navy bag is so similar, great find. And agree, that skirt is just too much. And too memorable, I mean you could only really wear it so often…

    Love the alternatives you found!

    Great look for less! I like the Celine bag but I think I would be over it quickly so I would get the Old Navy bag.

    great steal finds!!!! I agree that $500 is way too much for a skirt, even though it is pretty damn gorgeous!

    I am always shopping the look for less! I saw that skirt at Anthro and thought of you. I'm glad you saw it too. 🙂

    I agree, I do the the Tibi but not for $500. You are so right about old navy too!!

    great finds! I am really liking the Anthro skirt!

    I saw that skirt at Anthro and as much as I was tempted to get it, I didn't try it on, I thought that spending more than $100 for a skirt I won't wear for the next 6 months was not that smart (wearing that in the island would be like wearing a prom dress to the playground! 😉

    I'm hoping that it will go on sale, but I doubt it…it's just too popular!
