Real vs. Steal – Balmain Spring 2009 Strapless Embellished Dress

by Irina on October 16, 2009

Today we have yet another Balmain find. I know you’re probably totally bored by all the Balmain knockoffs, but I just had to post this dress as I’m absolutely mesmerized by it. The crystal embellishments and the woven mesh effect of the dress are just to-die-for. I already picture myself wearing this LBD with a cropped leather jacket to toughen up the cuteness of the dress.

Alice + Olivia Strapless Mesh Party Dress

Alice + Olivia isn’t exactly a budget-friendly brand, but if you consider that the original Balmain dress would set you back about 8k-10k, spending $550 on a close high quality knockoff seems like a pretty good move, don’t you agree? This dress is not an exact rip-off because it misses the bottom embellishment on the skirt, but overall it’s still a great option if you are looking for a cheaper Balmain alternative.
