Splurge vs. Steal: Alice + Olivia Lips Sweater, Plus 60% Off Sweaters at The Limited

Splurge vs Save: Lips Sweater

Alice + Olivia's pout embroidered cardigan is $220.80 (down from $368) at Saks Fifth Avenue, while a similar look for less is just $24 at The Limited! I think I prefer the budget version in red and camel even more than the original (see below!)

What an awesome sale! I love that I was able to snag a top and a sweater for under $40. What I really love is that you can get free two-day shipping, no matter how little you order, if you have an AMEX card, which I didn't realize until checkout! I was a little hesitant to spend that much on shipping for two pieces, but that service definitely change my mind! And when The Limited has a good sale, they have a good sale. I used to buy most of my work clothes there, when I was working.

That's a great perk with the AMEX card - do you know if it's just for this particular sale or do you always find that on various sites when you're checking out? Would be a huge incentive for me to sign up if so!

And yes, Limited was a spot I shopped at much more when I was working in an office. :-)

Those sweaters are adorable! I was always a little hesitant purchasing sweaters from The Limited, but I bought a black and gray high-low sweater from there last year and it is my favorite sweater in my closet - I have worn it countless times and it still is in great condition. I definitely have to purchase some while this deal is going on.
