Splurge Vs. Steal

With Thanksgiving just 15 days away, I realized I haven't even begun to think about a possible dinner outfit (shame on me)! I immediately hopped over to Shop Bop for inspiration and eyed this beautiful Gryphon Metal Sequin Tank.

Just the right amount of sparkle to light up the room. Plus I loved that it isn't completely fitted which will allow for some feasting on turkey (mashed potato, pumpkin, etc). The only thing I didn't love was $295.00 price tag...let's be honest, the odds that I will end up with something down the front of me by the end of the night (be it wine, dessert or gravy) is very likely.

Which is when I had a flashback of my trip to Georgetown with Mrs. R, when I saw this adorable top...

Oh American Eagle..thank you for carrying this Sparkle Tank that although is not an exact replica, will do just fine at $39.50! The quality of the tank is quite nice and I think for a savings of $255.50 I won't be too sad if I end up spilling on this tank.

So I would like to give thanks to Gryphon for designing a beautiful tank, and thank you to AE for making it a little more affordable!

I just saw that there the other day! But I had already picked one of the 'friendly price tag' nature from Agaci last week....NOw to find the perfect occasion to wear it...Maybe turkey day as well!

There is an even better - and cheaper! - one I got at Forever 21. It has a sexy twisted racerback too. Love it, and I think it was $29.
See me wearing it here, http://bblove.tumblr.com/post/217203316/cheese-plate-prosecco-couldnt-have-been
