The Look For Less: BCBG Max Azria Taffeta Shirtdress

I am crazy about almost every item of clothing that BCBG Max Azria comes out with. But if I really bought every BCBG item I loved, I'd be completely bankrupt. Just yesterday, in fact, I fell for this BCBG Max Azria Taffeta Shirtdress, available for $332 here. This piece puts a cute, tailored twist on the little black dress, with velvet trim, a tulle petticoat, and cute covered buttons.

If $332 seems a bit steep for you, however, I've found a super-cute and startlingly similar dress for $282 less. To see what it is,


It's the Johnny Collar Wrap Dress, yet another surprisingly stylish find from JC Penney, available for $49.99 here. It's cotton-spandex rather than silk, but it has the same great shirt-dress cut and big, playful bow. Both dresses would be a great option for a company cocktail party or other holiday gathering.

I'm not sure if the shirtdress is what I like or the taffeta trimmings.

You are really lucky with JC Penny's. I actually like the cheap one better-more practical. I guess I won't walk right past Penny's next time.
