I have been looking for the perfect lace top to add to my wardrobe because it is definitely a closet staple.  One of my favorite brands, Self-Portrait, has a beautiful one but the price point gets me every single time I go to purchase an item from their line.  This beautiful lace Self-Portrait top has been sitting in my shopping cart for weeks and I haven’t been able to pull the trigger on it.  So when I discovered this almost identical version on Nordstrom I knew I had to try it out!  I’m always hesitant about items that feel like a knock-off but in this case it feels like its worth saving your money.  I compared the two tops below so you can make a decision for yourself on whether or not you want to splurge or save on this season’s essential, the lace top.

Save or Splurge:

The Lace Top

  • The ruffle details on the less expensive top are not as stiff as the details on the Self-Portrait top. Which I actually appreciate.  I’m not a huge fan of super stiff material because let’s be honest comfort is key.
  • My biggest concern for a lace top priced at $99 was it looking cheap.  However, you would never know that is a 1/4 of the price of the Self-Portrait top because it looks so much more expensive.
  • The Self-Portrait top has a beautiful ruffle down the sleeve whereas, the less expensive style has a bell sleeve detail.  Again, another detail that I actually prefer because it allows me to wear it under a blazer.
  • If you are looking for a classic that will not go out of style, I feel like you can’t go wrong with either option.  However, bell sleeves are a trend. If this trend is not for you, than I would suggest the more expensive option or a style like this one, it’s under $200.
  • The less expensive top comes with a cami to wear underneath it whereas the more expensive Self-Portrait option does not. The more expensive option is meant to be worn with a bra peeking through from underneath.  Again, not a look that is for everyone, so if this is not for you, choose the less expensive option.
  • Both options will look great tucked into high waisted denim and will look as pretty when left untucked.

So if you are still torn, here is how I think about it, by purchasing the Wayf top you will be able buy a pair of high waisted denim to pair with it from the money you will have saved from choosing the less expensive option.  Ill take the full outfit, please!
