Cut it out!

I'm on the hunt for the perfect (preferably black but I'm open to suggestions) cut-out dress.

I came across this fierce picture from a Sass & Bide show - side note, I always see wonderful things by this brand online and they're so expensive I can't go near... and I've never seen their stuff in person to see if it's worth it... thoughts? - anyways, this picture is dramatic yet the dress is gorgeous:


Sass & Bide dress - somewhere in the $500 range

It inspired me to search for less pricy alternatives. I have tried some cut-out styles at Forever21 before but the ones I found just felt skanky, we are looking for refined sexy here, people!


So in my search I came across this one from ASOS that I really like, in the $50 range, but the inconsistency in ASOS brand sizing keeps me from buying...

Have you spotted any reasonable priced cut-outs lately? Have you ever tried Sass & Bide?

  1. I LOVE Sass & Bide...I have bought a couple of things from them and the quality has been good but yes, super expensive: not worth that much. Good luck with the cutout search :) Go for the ASOS one and I will have my fingers crossed for you :)

  2. Looove the Sass and Bide one, but you and your purse would better off buying three of the cut out ASOS one in different sizes and picking whichever one you fit the best, sending the others back. I find it's the only way with some of these online shops xx

  7. hey chick

    loving the australian brand on the blog! the store has some great things right now, i have one across the road from me.... but i say go for the asos! the trick with asos is to buy the own brand, and generally it'll come up a bit small.... xxxxxx
