The Look for Less: Vince White Eyelet Empire Dress

Can I please ask why someone would spend so much on such an easily ruinable summer staple like the LWD? In case you haven't heard, white is one of this Spring's essential colors. Now I love white as much as the next fake tanning girl, but it is one of the riskiest colors to wear. I don't think I have ever splurged on something white; I just don't think it's a smart investment. I also have butter fingers and tend to spill, run into and trip about so at the end of the day there is always a stain on me, especially if I'm wearing white (why does that always happen btw?). So there's my rant. While I think this Vince White Eyelet Empire Dress, $320, is way cute, I would never spend this much money on it. Now if it came in black...

To see this look for less,

There you have it. This Alloy White Eyelet Dress, $39.50, may not have quite the styling details but one can always cinch it and accessorize it to give it some panache. And if you spill a rum and coke on this one this summer, no biggie right?

Super cute! And I bought a splurge-y white eyelet skirt a few years ago that I still love and have managed not to ruin, so I wouldn't shy away from the investment. I'd be more concerned that the trapeze style, which I love and which is huge right now, won't last and then this little dress will be shoved in the back of the closet.

fabsugar, great find! I just saw a dress from Intermix, by Lacy Parker called the A-line Puff Sleeve Dress for $245.00! It looks almost exactly like the one from Alloy, BUT it's not even eyelet. It's 100% cotton and just plain solid white. The one nice thing about it is it's lined. But, $245.00 compared to $39.50 makes the Alloy dress a steal!! :) The Alloy dress doesn't say if it's lined..that's kind of important. Also, it doesn't say what the fabric is made out of..I would hope 100% cotton. Anyway, I like the Alloy dress for play clothes or even a beach cover-up. Thanks for posting it. :)

Cute, maybe for the beach, looks like a bathing suit cover up to me. Maybe it's the BIG hem line. The less expensive version is more stylish, with the right shoes and accessories it could take on a whole new darling look I think.

For anyone more into halter-style baby doll eyelet dresses, Old Navy has them for $24 each. They come in at least black and white that Ive seen. Very cute!
