Real vs. Steal – Elizabeth and James Sequined Sweatshirt

by Erica on September 11, 2013

UPDATE: This post has been updated on September 11, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

There’s something really fun about this household heather grey sweatshirt by Elizabeth and James gone glam. Yes, I realize it’s essentially a sweatshirt but look at it! I love it with a pair of fitted jeans, however I wouldn’t necessarily pair it with your old chucks that have been rotting in the back of your closet. Pair it with a nice pair of black pumps to bring out more of a glam look rather than a slouchy “I haven’t had my first cup of coffee“-look that Dakota Fanning is sporting. So, if $445 is a bit steep for you we have another great solution!

Theme Sequin Sweater

UPDATE (11/14/2011): Ten months after posting the first steal, I’ve came across another great E&J sequin sweater look-a-like by Theme. Although significantly darker than the original I think it’s still a great alternative and a lot cheaper, too!

Ella Moss “Majesty” Sequin Sweatshirt Top

I think the Ella Moss version for less than $100 fits the bill! It’s almost exactly the same look besides a little bit of difference in sleeve length and it comes in grey or black. I would have to say this Ella Moss sequined sweatshirt is superb in following the look and not hurting our wallets.

    What an adorable sweatshirt! I love the Elizabeth and James version but the “steal” is cute too. Your idea to pair it with pumps really elevates it. And um, what the heck is Miley wearing? LOL

  • ImSoHollywood

    It’s not often where most of the steals look just as good as the “real!” I love it!

  • Dirty Diana

    I actually saw the same design at Target! They have some on clearance for like 12 dollars and more holiday sequins for about 30 dollars! I checked today so check your local Target.

    Check out my blog it would make my day!

    Love, Diana
