Phillip Lim makes beautiful clothes, and though his stuff is considered rather affordable compared to other high-end goods, it's still in the triple digits. Take this 3.1 Phillip Lim Plaid Blouson Dress ($485), which is very modern. The muted colors scream Fall but the price makes me want to, well, scream!
To see the look for less,
I jumped for joy when I saw this Nine West Plaid Cap Sleeve Pencil Dress ($129). It reminded me so much of the Phillip Lim version because of the similar color scheme, the plaid, and the belted waist. True, the sleeves are shorter and the belt is different but when wanting to spend less, one can't be too picky. An added girlie bonus is the embellished collar. I'm lovin' it. Are you?
