Splurge vs. Steal: Striped Silk Blouse

When I first saw this gorgeous Equipment Brett Clean Blouse (in navy and green SOLD OUT) on Julie @ Sincerely Jules, I immediately clicked on the link  wanting to purchase it. But when I saw the price, I held back, knowing I'd be able to find a dupe for a fraction of the price. The Bebe version is also 100% silk and features a sheer drape and adjustable cuffs.

  / STEAL / Purchase Here or Similar Here /


Which version do you prefer?

  3. Wow, my favourite is the "steal" turquoise one! It's really hard to justify spending over $200 on a blouse when you can get one so similar for under $100. Thanks so much for finding this!

  4. First of all...great eye on spotting these two look alikes...but I will say that I LOVE Equipment shirts...
    Yes, they're totally pricey but I think once in a blue moon...it's good to splurge on something super special...like an Equipment shirt which you will totally keep in your closet for years ;)
