Splurge vs Steal: A Wrap Sweater

Months ago, a darling Alice + Olivia wrap-around cardi called my name from a mannequin. I ignored it.

I still think about it.

The problem then — and now — is the price tag.

Look at this beauty — it's a cashmere blend, so it must be wonderfully soft. The drape-front cardigan looks fab and gets major points for the buttons along the long placket — this means it can be fastened and draped around the neck, as seen in the photo, or you could even loop it around the waist for a different wrap look. It also costs $330.

Boo hoo.

The Forever XXI version (technically Love 21, Product Code: 2084877882), though, is a mere $29.80.
