Real vs. Steal – D&G Silk Bustier Dress

by Celine on February 18, 2010

What better way to celebrate the annual recurrence of Spring then with the lightest, sweetest, airiest of frocks? As our celebrities artfully demonstrate below, this D&G dress can be dressed up with cute, lady-like shoes or dressed down with chunky platforms and a chain belt. Unfortunately, as versatile as this dress may be, it is also seriously out of our price range (even at its sale price!).

ABS by Allen Schwartz Short Butterfly Dress

Fortunately for us, there exists a designer like Allen Schwartz who has long been in the market of re-creating celebrity dresses. Their “Butterfly” dress is a near-perfect copy of its much more expensive cousin. The dress is white rather than ballerina-pink, but the beautiful shirred bodice and floaty chiffon skirt tell the same whimsical story as the original – and at a much nicer price.
