Real vs. Steal – Nanette Lepore Lovina Beach Dress

by Celine on April 23, 2010

I’m a stalker. I’ll admit it. Luckily for my police record I stalk clothes and not people. It’s still a problem though, as my stalking tends to take up much of my day. Every once in a while, however, it really pays off. Case in point: I’ve loved the Nanette Lepore Lovina Dress ever since it first popped up on Shopbop. I’m a huge fan of the contrast between the brightly colored, lightweight, silk fabric and the more masculine black strap and buckled belt. It feels modern and fresh. Sadly, I don’t have $350 to throw around, especially not on something Nanette’s calling a “beach dress”.

LuLu*s Fashion Director Dress

Sometimes, my friends, stalking really pays off. I happened to be looking through LuLu*s new arrivals when I came across this Fashion Director dress. I implore you to spot a difference between this dress and the Nanette Lepore original. Can’t do it, can you? I may have to run off and marry Lulu*s (sorry in advance to my fiancé) because they just have the best knockoffs. I still can’t believe this dress is only $56, and you know what? I think I like this marigold color better than the original deep pink! A must have for summer.

  • I have the real Nanette Lapore in a size 8, if you still want it, pink silk.
    I never wore it (got too fat) but the belt is missing…I can’t seem to remember where I put it. Anyway, make an offer by email if interested.
