Inspired by...Torn by Ronny Kobo

This striped dress was recently featured in Shopbop's Ultimate Closet (which was blogged about recently on Amber's Notebook). I love the black and white stripe Sonia dress from Torn by Ronny Kobo but sadly it's completely sold out at the moment. Original retail price was $143.

If you missed out on the Torn dress like I did, but still want to get an inspired by look, I found a few options (although they seem to be more white than black unfortunately) that might work. The first is by Aqua and retails for $78 at Bloomingdales. This dress has an interesting twist on the pattern at the waist, giving you the optical illusion of a smaller midsection.

The second option is for the petite ladies and retails for $47.59 at Asos.

The third option I found retails for $44.19 at Asos and also comes in longer length. Click here if you'd like to purchase.

And the final option is also from Aqua and retails for $68. I like this one because it has a u-back detail similar to the original. Click on the photo below if you're interested in purchasing!


Note: I also found this one at Forever 21 for $11.80 but it's navy and white instead of black.

**Don't forget to check out Amber's Notebook for her striped dress pick!**

Which of these dresses do you prefer? Would you be satisfied with an inspired by item or are you lusting after the real thing and hoping it comes back in stock?
