Real vs. Steal – Equipment Sophie Striped Silk-Chiffon Shirt

by Irina on July 12, 2013

UPDATE: This post has been updated on July 12, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the newly re-launched brand Equipment. Their blouses and shirts are supposed to be top notch quality and they quickly gained a loyal celebrity following since their re-launch in 2010. Fashion insiders like Carine Roitfeld and Giovanna Battaglia are fans as well. While I can’t comment on the quality of Equipment clothing myself (yet!) and hence can’t say whether it’s worth the splurge, I sure can say that I absolutely love the look of this semi-sheer striped silk-chiffon shirt in cream and black! I mean it has stripes on it, and as you might already know that’s all it takes to get me swooning over something!

LC Lauren Conrad Striped Chiffon Blouse

Now look which celebrity socialite is taking inspiration from her own designer wardrobe for her budget-priced fashion line! When I saw this LC Lauren Conrad chiffon blouse I was instantly reminded of the Equipment striped shirt. And besides the slight variation in color and the crochet collar, I can’t really see any visual differences between these two (not talking about quality here!). Snap up this blouse for only $13.20 and get yourself the coral/white version, too, while you’re at it.
