Steal vs. Splurge

Out of all of the European labels, Pucci has still maintained it's luxurious and high end edge. I have a few Pucci pieces, mostly accessories. Recently, I made a stop in Century's 21, a.k.a. the stomping ground for label whores. In just four floors, you have a plethora of every Fashion stereotype. From the discount hungry Euro carriers, to the East Flatbush urban label seekers, to the Fashion stylist with a budget cut in half, let's not forget the reccesionista;Century's 21 is a kamikaze of status claiming harpies. After all, that's why I was there. While taking in a huge ande very inviting inventory of Alexander McQueen, Balmain and even Tory Burch, I saw a T-stand of multicolored frocks, that made my heart go pitter patter. Right in the middle of Fashion warfare I saw one of the best knockoffs ever, an Audrey Mai inspired by Pucci dress for $50 bucks. Take a look at it here:




Here is the real thing at Net-A-Porter for $1,495






A savings of $1450 bucks, you can't beat that. What a major major steal! Century's 21, your back on my shopping route.
