Chanel Cream Wool Dress

When I tried on this cream dress at the Chanel trunk show, I like the simple silhouette with diagonal fringe detail. But, I am definitely not in adoration with the price tag of over $5000 plus. SG will have to be out of her rocker to buy a dress for that price; at least I won’t buy it at full price.However, while I am sick in bed over the weekend, I found this cream Tevrow + Chase dress for a lot less (a smaller price tage of $425)and with similar silhouette. Yes, Chanel dress has more detail but dress on right is interesting in its own right with the vertical detail down the center. And, a gal can still achieve similar look just by throwing on a black wide belt with jewel buckle. The only thing I will do to the dress on right is to shorten the hem to above the knee. So which will you pick?

  6. I like cheaper dress, it looks nice too! But you definitely should truncate it and put on belt, I think so it will look more stylish:)

  9. At the risk of sounding like some sort of a heretic to a few friends, it seems almost obscene to spend that kind of $$$ on a dress. So we definitely opt for the choice on the right, the more "fiscally responsible" dress.

  11. If money wasn't an object, I'd go for the Chanel . . . but the cable knit choice is very cute.

    Maybe the Chanel will pop up on eBay!

  12. prefer the neckline from the alternative dress. I am assuming the second one is no where near 5G?

  13. I think the Chanel's length is kinda hoochie for a dress, def. a sweater dress
    therefore love the one you found
