Double-Take: Mossimo vs. Michael Stars


It's time for another double-take, where we take one item from Tar-jay and pair it up with a similar designer piece. This time, we're looking at the easy, breezy kimono dress: a fun summer style that can double as a beach-cover up. Both dresses shown come in a punchy purple color....only one is from Mossimo at Target (at a wallet-friendly $18) and the other is a whopping $100 more at $118 from Michael Stars (via Zappos.com). Can you guess which is which? The answer appears in the comments section.

The dress on the left is the spendy Michael Stars one, and the one on the right is the thrify Mossimo one. Plus, this week Target has the Mossimo one on sale for just $15!

I usually love your double take items but this is so far off. One is drop waist the other is baby doll style. NOT similar at all. Not to mentioned the necklines. Totally missed the mark on this one.

I was searching for something else and came upon a page of name-brand sunglasses, all sold out, most with descriptions mentioning how cheap they are. Do you know anything about them? Example: http://www.target.com/Dolce-Gabbana-Tortoiseshell-Sunglasses/dp/B0029YA28A/ref=sc_qi_detaillink

Pinkplaidface: my only guess on the D&G sunglasses is that they were one of Target's "Daily Deals" that sold out quickly. Every day on their web site, they have a name brand item for a one-time deal. Here's the link; today's deal is for a gaming system - http://dailydeals.target.com/?ref= sc_iw_ss
