Splurge vs Save: Tye Dye Kimono

I oogled over this Spellbound Tie Dye Kimono for quite some time and for some reason never pulled the trigger while it was in the stores. It was soft and gorgeous and the color options are great also.  Then one day I went to buy it and it was gone (still online though).  So I found the SAVE version of and decided for under $20 (that’s under $20 with tax and shipping included) it would be worth a shot and it has been a favorite in the summer with swimsuits and jean shorts and will continue to be a favorite in the fall with its perfect colored mustard color.

Now it’s a different material than the SPLURGE for sure. But it dried quickly at the beach.  Plus it’s great for traveling because it takes up very little space and remains relatively unwrinkled. It does make me a little warm since our fall temps haven’t dropped, but to be honest I’m always warm.

Sizing is always a concern for me. I typically order a medium or large in kimonos so I ordered up a size and got a X-large. It fits perfect so I recommend going up one size.

Here it is in real life. It clearly looks a little different than the version they have posted. But I still am happy with my purchase.


Clearly the more expensive version isn’t that much more, but since I took one for the team and tried out the save version I had to share my review with you.
