Inspired by...Halston Heritage - *Updated 6/1/10*

See bottom of post for update.

I'm sure you've all seen this photo of Sarah Jessica Parker on the set of the second Sex and the City movie. Her dress is by Halston Heritage and it retails for $325 at Singer 22. A reader recently wrote in and asked if I could find a similar dress for less and I wanted to share my find with you guys!

Splendid's modal jersey bell sleeve dress isn't an exact match but it is a great inspired by dress that will give you a start on giving you Carrie's casual look. It will also save you about $206 of your hard earned cash (always a bonus) as it retails for $119. Click on the photo below to purchase.

*Update - 5/6/10* - My friend Pam actually found this great alternative a couple weeks ago but it went out of stock on the XOXO website in white. Beautiful Things just posted that it's available (and on sale) at Macy's. It is on sale for $39.99 and also comes in black. Click here to purchase.


*Update - 6/1/10* - Reader Julie just alerted me to this version by Patricia Field which retails for $198. Click here to purchase.



Also Go Jane has a version that comes in white, blue, coral, green, and black for $32.90. Click here to purchase their version.

LOL...J, I have a post scheduled with SJP's Halston look 4 less with the exact same dress! Great minds, you know :)

J @ The Look 4 Less said...

^That's so funny! And yes, great minds. :)

Would you wear nude undergarments under this dress? The white looks like it could be a little peek-a-boo! It is stunning! It would look great with a nice golden tan during the summer.

^Marcie, honestly I would probably go with one of the other colors (I'm always worried about things being too sheer!!) but if you love the ivory color shown I would absolutely wear nude undergarments!

There's also a version available at Shock Boutique for $99 (https://www.shockboutique.com/index.php/dresses/deep-v-neck-dress-in-white.html). Dupes of a few of the SATC dresses are available there actually.

Love your blog by the way!
