Double-Take: Mossimo vs. Moncler

It's time for another double-take, where we take one item from Target and match it up against a lookalike (and much pricier) designer piece. With Winter in full swing, I thought we'd take a look at a cold-weather staple: the puffer coat.  The problem with puffers is that they can add unwanted bulk, and let's face it, make you look larger than you'd like. That's why these versions - with a belt to cinch your waist - are brilliant.  Both come in black (as shown) as well as a deep wine color, and feature a detachable seatbelt-style belt.  But one is by Moncler (sold by Bloomingdale's) and is over $1000 (!!!) while the other is by Mossimo (at Target) and is less than $50.

And while you might be able to easily tell which-is-which by the stock photos, I still can't believe the price difference between these two coats.  So check the comments section for the answer!

The coat on the left is from Moncler, which is a whopping $1,295 at Bloomies. And the one on the right is from Mossimo, which is now on sale for just $41.98! (down from $59.99). I bought mine online - where there still seems to be stock in most colors/sized (except for the Gray) and I've also seen these on clearance in Target stores.

So cute! I am puffy enough currently without adding puffer effect.
