Good morning friends!! ;)

I’m up late working/sketching/tweeting and I came across THIS!
Bebe has a very Balmain inspired leather jacket for a LOT less than the real deal. And unfortunately, a lot less than I got mine for. Oh well.
I actually love the bebe one- it’s a lot less aggressive in the shoulder padding and if you wanted a little DIY project you could add the little dangly thingies yourself ;)

The Balmain jacket (HERE at Luisaviaroma) will set you back almost $10,000… yikes.
While the bebe jacket (HERE on is yours for under $200!
Is it just me or does the leather actually look better on the bebe one?? Weird, right? What do you guys think?? Great deal or no?
I have done my good deed for the day. Maybe now I can sleep.

    Forever 21 has a very similar jacket to Bebe’s and it’s selling for much cheaper! Although it’s obviously not real leather given the price.

    That’s a hot jacket.

    i’m leaning more towards the bebe version. besides, it’s a lot cheaper and it looks more cuter. =)

    I like the bebe one, although you can see the quality on the balmain is great. Urban Outtfitters has one too that’s a little over $100.

    Both of them are so HOT!!! You will look very sexy in either one!!

    I like the Bebe one, but I still like the one you got better. I can’t believe the Bebe one is real leather. Thanks for the find =)

    I actually love the Bebe one better. But is yours Bebe or am i just seeing things? It does look similar but i still prefer yours. Unfortunately i cant justify buying a jacket now cuz its almost summer here in Australia :)
