Designer Vs High Street: BCBG Vs Forever 21

Our thanks to Thee at Bow-Bitten Blasphemy for pointing us in the direction of this “spot the difference” puzzle from Forever 21 and BCBG, both of whom have created pink, ruffled dresses, with large flower corsages at the bust. Sure, there are enough differences here to keep Forever 21 out of trouble, but there are also enough similarities between the two to cause a strong sense of deja vu.

What do you think of them? Which one would you choose, assuming they’d wear either of them?

[Great spot, Thee!]

    I prefer BCBG’s version. The ruffles seem incomplete on Forever 21’s version.

    I, on the other hand, prefer the Forever 21 versiona. The colour is nicer and the fabric looks better, at least in the photo. I do believe that the styling is also better for the forever21 one. Oh, and the corsage looks a million times better on the F21 dress!

      Oh, and sorry for the excessive use of the word better. I’m in exam frenzy right now and can barely keep my eyes focused 😛

    I like the neckline and the color of the F21 one better.

    I also prefer the F21 dress. It just looks less droopy.

    I like the colour, corsage and neckline better on the F21 version, but i like how the ruffles go down to the bottom on the BCBG version.

    Oddly, I like the Forever 21 version better… even though it’s obviously lower quality in real life, I like how in the picture at least, it looks better structured.

    BCBGs seems more versitile. Okay with jeans, leggings, as a dress.

    I also have to say that I saw the BCBG version last fall, and it was just as bright as the F21 version, if not brighter in real life!

    I like Forever 21s better. I like the cut and the colour much more, and I’m not much of a ruffles girl so the amount on the XXI version works better for me. Although I may be a bit biases, most of my wardrobe comes from XXI.

    It’s funny: I almost always like the cheaper version better, even before I know which one is the cheaper version.
