The Look For Less: ABS Charmeuse Red Dress

The floral trend has been blooming for some time now and this ABS by Allen Schwartz Charmeuse red dress, $300, is a fab favorite. It may look familiar, as it reminded us of Nicole Kidman's red Balenciaga Oscars gown - remember? Although compared to many frocks out there right now it's not that expensive, it is still pretty pricey for something you'll probably only wear once or twice. Let's face it: with something this red and eye-catching, you don't want to be caught wearing it at every soiree.


To see the look for less,

This Bebe Silk Mesh Bubble Dress, $140, is nearly identical to the dress above. It has the bubble hem and the flowers at the nape of the neck, though they're not as prominent. It's not that much cheaper, but when you're working hard for the money, every penny counts!

Oh, I love the ABS! Yeah, I need to be careful with those billowy dresses becasue people will think I AM pregnant again, but it would be perfect for this wedding I have early next fall. Maybe I can find it on sale by then!

The second version looks better, smaller bow, and less pleating down the front, just bring down the hemline a tad more. That should do it for my 2 cents worth. :-)

Looks far too much like a maturnity dress, maybe if it had an empire waist it would be more appealling.

The color on the ABS dress is beautiful, however it's definitely a one time only dress. I don't think I would spend the money on it.
