Bandage Dress Trend: Splurge vs. Steal

As a special request, I am dedicating this post to the evening dress phenomenon known as Herve Leger. The french designer is best known for his creation of the ever so popular "bandage" dress. His signature look is made of amazing, curve hugging bandage material that can easily transition from day to night.

Celebrities absolutely adore the brand, with everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Victoria Beckham donning the look since it exploded onto the scene. Although he's been around for over a few years, the dresses are still a hot ticket. Last fall he incorporated tonal dresses as well as the use of sequins. This fall, it's all about dark colors and the dominatrix look.

Now, I personally don't own any Herve Leger dresses (as much as I'd LOVE to) but what I did recently was purchase this great version from the one and only Bebe ($89):

I love the color for fall and can't wait to pair it with a cute pair of black leather cut-out booties. In case you were curious, here is the inspiration from Herve Leger ($1,250):

A GORGEOUS dress but still, why spend over a thousand dollars when you can spend under a hundred?
