Fashion Fellow: @Lulusdotcom vs. Oscar de la Renta

Lulu's used to be an online shopping spot I went to regularly. But somewhere down the line I forgot about them. I really don't know why. In any case I just started visiting LuLu's again, and becoming reacquainted with an old friend. Today, I decided to do some perusing...looking to see what I can add to my closet for summer (I do love my maxi dresses), and I found a maxi dress that took me back to the striped "Gazar" gown from Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 collection. A gown I have been obsessed with ever since! I love the effortlessness of it all. It's simply fabulous. Back to LuLu's...so I saw that they are selling a maxi dress with that ODL feel. It's by Dreamboat Come True ivory and navy striped maxi dress. It's a fashion fellow (a friendlier and more affordable version of the designer piece. I think that term fits nicely, don't you?) While I would love the ODL gown...I cannot afford that $6,000+ price tag (plus it's all sold out now anyway). But I can do $54 and walk like I am on the runway. So put on the welcome mat Lulu's...I'm coming back!
