Real vs. Steal - Lace shorts

(images sourced from google)

Now I only do these type of posts when the replica is too good to miss out on, and I think in this case it's pretty darn good. I have been a fan of the Lover lace-trimmed shorts for a good while now however I refuse/can't fork out that much money for, as a friend once put it, "half-pants" no matter how sartorially pleasing they are. Then I came across the Beginning Boutique pair and boy was my life turned around. So many tangerine lace thoughts filled my mind and the lust of Summer grew even stronger. Can't wait for these shorts to be on their way to me (once they have refilled my size). What do you think? Would you invest or go cheap? xx 


  1. I'm loving the tangerine lace! I think my best option would be to head to a Nordstrom Rack and see if I could score something like it on sale ;) Thanks for the comment, I'd love to follow each other! I'm now following you :) Hope to see more lovely posts soon! <3 Emily

  2. Fantastic shorts! I love the color:)
    Have a nice day pretty!

  3. I love them both!! So it's hard to say which one I would choose!

  4. I have a thing for lace and these shorts are just so cute.


  5. I like the color of the one on the left better, but the lace pattern on the right more. Bc I'm on a budget, I'd have to go cheap, but these two are so similar that it doesn't seem like a downgrade.


  6. I like these shorts a lot. Of course the one of the left looks better but the other one is also a good alternative.

  7. Amazing blog and nice post!! Would you like to follow each other?? Let me know.. :)



  8. I wouldn't spend so much money on a pair of shorts, the alternative is really good!

  9. This is a no brainer. As much as I love Lover, my wallet isn't always willing to splurge haha. I'd be snagging the BB version.

  10. Love your blog! Wanna follow each other on GFC and Bloglovin, also on twitter? it would be very nice. just let me know and I'll follow you back asap! :D

  11. Although I like the shorts on the right a bit more, I would definitely get the ones on the left if the brighter shorts were a lot more expensive. Both are pretty to me!

    Oh, and I've never heard the term "half-pants" referring to shorts before, so I found that funny. :)

  12. i'm such a lover of these shorts aswell and lover does a really great pair! however, i actually like the beginning boutique pair that little bit more. the lace is much more delicate looking and i like the positioning of it way more aswell. x.
