Sold Out Ann Taylor Dress: Cheap & Chic Alternatives

Ann Taylor Vintage Floral Dress
Ann Taylor; $198
After Milla Jovovich and Hilary Rhoda modeled this Ann Taylor Vintage Floral Dress, the stylish sheath was nowhere to be found.

Of course, you could snap up the sought-after dress on eBay, for almost double the original cost.

While the "it" dress just arrived back on the virtual shelves of Ann Taylor online, even the original price of $198 is little too steep for me to spend on a summer dress. So I shopped around to find similar versions that won't break the bank.




eyelet white dress
Victoria's Secret; $39

This eyelet trimmed dress from Victoria's Secret also has a built-in bra top. Perfectly summery in white, it's on sale for only $39. That's some serious savings, which means more margaritas.







chiffon tiered dress spiegel
Spiegel; $64
I actually like this chiffon vintage-y dress from Spiegel even better than the much more expensive Ann Taylor sheath. It's got more pow, and it's on sale right now for $64. Watch out garden party!
