Modcloth Social Hour Crochet Lace Skirt Dupe from Pitaya

If you're lucky enough to live near these 17 locations, you should high-tail it to Pitaya. St. Louis has one right on the Delmar Loop, which is a popular dine/hangout/shop street that people from my college often frequent.

A while ago, Ann Taylor Factory came out with a crochet lace skirt (see on Jean and Jen here) that everyone went nuts for. It is an interesting vintagey piece that fits right into the work wardrobe. Many girls (Jean and Annie) turned to Modcloth's Social Hour Skirt instead, but this relatively affordable $38 version sold out very quickly as well. [Update 8/7/11: Found it here at Threadsence in S, M, L]

I was looking for work-appropriate skirts at Pitaya after dinner at Fitz's with friends (they have killer root beer) and I stumbled upon this beauty (apologizes for the dark blurry phone pics):
Either my eyes are deceiving me, or this is almost an exact dupe of the much-sought-after crochet lace skirt! Of course I actually forgot to check the real tag, since Pitaya is a boutique and carries many brands. Too bad it was a Medium, or I would have shelled out the $36. It is oddly fitting for work, and a good length.

The black one is still for sale on the site and there is one more in Medium in the St. Louis store. Hurry up and nab it before I go back for it!
Pretty close to its Modcloth Social Hour Skirt cousin, eh? (The colour is much more white than this nude tone). That is one helluva dupe if I ever seen one.
Dupes aside, right now Pitaya has cute bright belts for $10-12 and a bunch of sheer and chiffon tops and dresses, what I am dying for in this summer heat. I picked up two skirts that are quirky yet work-friendly on sale and splurged a little. Getting a big fat paycheck is pretty awesome - unfortunately I don't know how to budget. I think you can guess what I got if you don't already follow me on Twitter. Hint: it rhymes with BUCHANAN and you'll be able to see my world of fashion through a different LENS : ) Another hint: I hope I have enough funds left to feed myself.

Such a cute skirt! I have a bunch of lace laying around at home so I think I might just make one and not shell out $40+ for one!

Ahhhh I'm so sad that I don't have one of these stores near me! I've been eying that Modcloth skirt for weeks now ever since I saw it on a few different petite blogs :(

Angie - I don't think that's a "dupe" - I think that's the exact skirt! Modcloth sources from smaller independent designers and manufacturers, and it's not a surprise to find the same exact items at other stores. I just wish the items were easier to find (ie. by a style number or style name/brand), because I know some girls have been trying to hunt down this skirt! So funny that you found it at Pitaya, and in black too : )
