We love Kate Winslet, owing greatly to the time that she called up Vanity Fair to bitch them out for over-photoshopping her thighs for the cover- they'd cut too much off! You go, curvy sister!
This is not quite a splurge vs. steal since we didn't try to do the whole outfit with accessories, but we found this blue dress absolutely stunning and had to feature it as a look for less! What appears to be almost the exact same one- although Kate's has a bit more detailing at the bustline (couture vs. ready-to-wear, we imagine?) - retails for a whopping $1250.00 at BCBG. Can anyone who isn't a movie star imagine spending that on one (non-wedding) dress? We surely can't.
Also, if you don't have Kate's phenomenal figure, this skin-tight silhouette might not be the best for you (it sure wouldn't be for us!) so we include a couple of more flattering a-line skirt options. Those of you blessed with no lumps and bumps could definitely pull off the Goddiva version second from the right, though!
Which is your favorite?
Also, have any of you ever actually shopped at Forever 21? We just noticed a brand-new and enormous one in our town mall, but didn't venture inside. Is the quality crap? Is it all for juniors? Let us know if you have insight!
