Real vs. Steal – Sonia Rykiel Embellished Silk-Georgette Tank

by Irina on September 17, 2009

As much as I love extravagant dresses and sky high stiletto heels, sometimes it’s all about the basics. Having an array of crisp white shirts and tank tops in your closet is a must. Whenever I go shopping for basics however, I still end up always looking for fancy details to satisfy my obsession with everything studded, embellished, embroidered, sequined or torn, so it’s no wonder I have instantly fallen in love with Sonia Rykiel‘s silk chiffon tank below. It may look like your regular striped tank with sequins at first sight, but upon closer inspection you will see that the sequins aren’t actually sequins but intricately beaded pearls and crystals. What an attention to detail, I adore it!

If you can’t afford spending more than 2k on a tank top (albeit a very beautiful one), this bebe studded tank might fit your bill. Like the Sonia Rykiel original this one also has beaded, crystal and studded details running across the bodice and is also made of silk. The tank top retails for $49 and is available in either white, black, blue or dove grey.
