Its a website very similar to Celeb Boutique where I found the 'Carly' dress that my heart had set on wearing for New Years Eve in Vegas. Like Celeb Boutique, this site offers celebrity inspire pieces made completely affordable to the every day girl. When I located the same exact dress (just happening to be checking out the site for something else) priced at least fifty dollars lower, I almost lost my mind! I decided to do a tiny little review on both sites to see which ones measure up to my slightly high expectations. Lets see. . .
Upon first entering either of the sites, you quickly notice the stream of celeb pics scrolling across the screen. Glam Girls like Kim K, JLo, Beyonce and Amber Rose are seen rocking the dresses that served as the inspiration for these said replicas. Celeb Boutique boasts a very tech savvy home page, with tons of pictures blinking in and out of the screen, while FTF (For the Fabulous) brings us subtle simplicity with about four celebrity photos.
You'll notice that Celeb Boutique has lots of tabs at the top of the screen. You can select to view all dresses, just body con dresses, skirts, tops or even choose to shop by celeb. This site gives you options to categorize your search while FTF allows you to choose from dresses, skirts or sale items only. Celeb Boutique offers jewelry, shoes, bags and belts as well. The site even offers HAIR EXTENSIONS. *side eye ya'll* The site offers a Hall of Fame tab, where shoppers are able to see real people wearing dresses purchased on the site, just in case you needed a push to purchase. FTF as you can imagine does NOT offer any of this. Simply dresses and skirts.
So where are you going to buy from? Celeb Boutique you say? Well, not so fast. When all the bells and whistles are silenced, it all comes down to one simple thing... "what you twerkin with?" LOL Translation- PRICE!
I did a few comparisons in reference to pricing on the sites and while FTF might have dropped the ball on everything else, it slam dunked on Celeb Boutiques price points. Take a look:
Lets start out with a dress we're all familiar with. My tentative NYE look option. For the sake of confusion, we'll stick by Celeb Boutique and call it the 'Carly' dress. I noted early on that I was prepared to pay $200 for this dress, as listed on Celeb Boutique. Though the dress has since dropped down to $189 on the site, I would much rather pay the listed $145 for the SAME dress at FTF.

Now, lets take a look at another dress both sites offer. Well, because it makes since, we'll call this dress the 'Evelyn'. I'm assuming Celeb Boutique named this the Evelyn because it was spotted on Reality TV star Evelyn Lozada. Evelyn's dress was an Herve Leger bandage which flaunted a tube neckline and bursts of color. This replica does exactly that. . .
