Stripes. I’m still ridiculously obsessed with them and probably will never grow tired of them. That’s why I probably don’t have to tell you how I feel about this striped silk midi skirt by Tibi. And after seeing this skirt on some of my most favorite fashion bloggers, it made my obsession with it ten times worse. Not that I could give in to the temptation of buying it – that skirt costs a whopping $349 and that’s already the sale price (retail is $698)! But still… if I was rich girl (na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na nah)

Update (07/14/2016): Just stumbled upon this striped a-line midi skirt at Stradivarius and thought it’d be a great, budget-friendly alternative to the pricey Tibi skirt above.

Eliza J Pleated Stripe Midi Skirt

Update (03/28/2016): OMG! Now look at this beauty of a skirt by Eliza J! Isn’t it just gorgeous? I love how spot-on it is to the Tibi skirt, especially since the materials look exactly the same even though Tibi’s skirt is 100% silk and this one is 100% polyester. Anyway, the material at least looks just as luxurious as the pricey real deal, so that might be close enough. Also, did I mention this skirt is on sale? But the best part? If you use promo code “JULY” at checkout, you will get 15% off regular-priced and sale items at Lord & Taylor which will lower the price of this skirt down to an affordable $135.15 (retail price is $159, offer valid through July 18th, 2016).

ASOS Midi Prom Skirt in Stripe

Update (01/12/2016): Discovered this awesome striped midi skirt at ASOS a few days ago, ordered it straight away and love it to death! It’s a great and budget-friendly alternative to the pretty Tibi skirt above, don’t you think? Sizes are selling out by the hour, so I wouldn’t wait too long with this one.

Forever 21 Contemporary Sheeny Stripe A-Line Skirt

Update (10/29/2015): Spotted another great Tibi skirt alternative today! The stripes on this a-line skirt by Forever 21 are slightly smaller, but the overall look is still very Tibi and the price is so affordable, too. Available in either ivory/black or wine/black for $27.90.

Topshop Stripe Midi Skirt

Luckily, Topshop caters to the needs of us stripe-lovin’, budget-conscious fashionistas, so they came up with a fantastic Tibi look for less option that will cost you just 1/7 of what the real deal would set you back. It’s not the cheapest skirt in town, I admit, but from what I read in reviews, the quality seems to be good and the fabric to be heavy and crease-free. And who doesn’t love to save time on ironing? Get this beauty while it’s still available, it’s almost sold out at Topshop and Nordstrom will probably follow soon as well.

Choies Striped Midi Skirt

If you love striped skirts, but don’t want to spend $100 on one, then you might want to take a look at this Tibi-inspired midi skirt I discovered at Choies. It looks very similar to the real deal, but costs only $16.90! You shouldn’t expect too much quality-wise, but if you want a cheap fashion fix for your stripes obession, this is probably the best way to go.

When I first laid my eyes on Tibi‘s crystal-embellished “Britt” wedge mules, I was instantly obsessed! And that’s coming from someone who really isn’t a fan of mules. But this one was different! And while the Tibis aren’t terribly expensive at $495, they are however pretty much sold out everywhere and hence hard to get ahold of. So when I spotted these non-embellished Zara mules below, I thought maybe this could be a DIY project? I’m not much of a DIYer, but the idea sounds doable. What do you think? Are these shoes worth the effort?

Who would’ve known that a neon green full midi skirt could look so good? I really love this beautiful silk skirt by Tibi and looking at how all these fabulous style bloggers paired this super feminine number to each suit their own personal style I am kind of inspired to go out and shop for a full midi skirt myself even though I always used to think that a midi skirt would be too hard to pull off on my not-model-thin frame. However, there’s no way I could justify spending $525 on such a trendy and experimental piece! Luckily, I didn’t have to. Read on to discover an equally stylish alternative for much, much less.

ASOS Full Midi Skirt in Scuba

ASOS certainly know how to wow us budget-savvy fashionistas, don’t they? I’m absolutely delighted by their electrifying full midi skirt in cobalt blue which doesn’t cost even nearly as much as the Tibi version but is just as stylish as the designer skirt. Sure, the ASOS skirt may not be made of silk, but I do love the shiny scuba-like fabric and highly prefer the vibrant blue color over Tibi’s flashy lime green. So, so gorgeous! Get this skirt now before it sells out!

Real vs. Steal – Tibi Draped Shift Dress

by Irina on January 17, 2013

I’ve been obsessed with this amazingly beautiful shift dress by Tibi since February last year. So much so I even crowned it “Dress of the Day” (I hardly find time to write these kind of posts nowadays, so when I do get around to write one, you can be sure it must be an especially great dress to me). Of course, $450 wasn’t a price I could justify to spend on such a unique dress, so this lovely mint frock went to sell out without me purchasing it. Sad story and no happy end here. Boohoo!

LuLu*s Sorbet-by Doll Mint Green Shift Dress

I haven’t been able to forget the Tibi dress ever since and when I saw this LuLu*s dress today, it instantly reminded of the Tibi version. While it certainly is not a perfect match to the Tibi dress because of the missing beautiful draped detail in the front and the 3/4-sleeves, for $38 it’s definitely a great alternative that won’t break the bank. And if you’re so over mint green, good news for you because this dress is also available in a lovely rose pink color.
