Look for Less: Ella Moss Rosette Top

As some of my dear, sweet readers have reminded me, summer isn't over just yet. This sleeveless top by Ella Moss (above left) speaks to warm weather with it's brilliant coral hue and loose-fit, yet it could easily transition into early fall with a cardigan or cropped jacket. If you like the look but not the price, the ELLE for Kohl's rosette top on the right should fit the bill. The origami rosettes are very on-trend and will bring attention to your lovely face without being overwhelming. Plus, they're a great way to do "floral fashion" even if you're not fond of floral prints.

Left: Ella Moss "Piper" Top with Embroidered Rosettes at, $99.00
Right: ELLE Rosette Top, also available in black at, Was $34 Now $24.99

Ella versus Elle. WHO WILL WIN?

Sorry, feeling a bit goofy today.

I have to say, I really like the Elle (not Ella :-) ) top more!

I agree. If the ELLE top is as cute as it looks in the photo, and is of good quality, I like the styling of the top (particularly the longer length and 3D origami rosettes) a bit better than the Ella Moss top. Love the color - One of my favorites for summer!

not only is this color to die for, but the little rosettes make it unbelievably cute!

I'm sorry, but the Ella Moss is way cuter. No comparison. You can see that it is better quality, which is why it is more expensive. But if you want to save, rather than going with lower quality you should just buy at the sample sales. That's what i do. is having one on ella moss tomorrow. They have sales up to 75% off. Its great.
