Dior‘s “Mise En Dior” Earrings have become quite the new “It“-piece in the fashion world. They are pretty much sold out everywhere, despite their heavy price tag of $290 (and we’re talking costume jewelry here). I must say I am still a little undecided whether I love or hate these because while they do look great on the promo pics and on the celebs below, I’ve also seen pictures where they looked rather big and clumpy and made their wearer’s ears look huge and padded. But still, I am slightly leaning towards loving them for some reason. Maybe because they’re Dior.

Jarin K Double Side Earrings

UPDATE (10/11/2014): As you might know, the introductory price of Dior’s Mise En Dior earrings used to be $290, but due to their popularity and high demand Dior raised the price to over $400 this year which I think is absolutely outrageous. If you’re not willing to pay Dior’s new, inflated price (we’re talking costume jewelry after all) yet want to invest in a high-quality dupe that is going to last you a while, you might want to consider these double side earrings by Jarin K. While I think it’s a little shameless to sell someone else’s design for such a high price, I also think this is karma’s retaliation for Dior’s unjust markup.

I love costume jewelry, but really hate spending lots of money on it. I just don’t see the point in investing several hundreds of dollars in something that’s not even real gold (alright, YSL’s Arty ring is excluded from this testimony). Call me frugal, call me cheap, whatever! Luckily, we have BaubleBarpjx where you get the best of both worlds: trendy and up-to-date statement jewelry for affordable prices and in a decent quality on top. Most of their items are under $30 (many under $40!) like their highly popular 360 Stud Earringspjx (aka the Mise en Dior dupe). What’s great about BaubleBar is that they offer free shipping (both ways!) on all US orders. And what’s even greater is that you can get 15% off your first order if you sign up to the BaubleBar newsletter. Steal deal alert! Plus, now that gift season is upon us: all of their jewelry comes in (free!) gorgeous, giftable boxes. Perfect for any christmas present! Below are a few of our personal BaubleBar favorites.

You can love or hate Kim Kardashian all you want, but there’s no denying that some of her outfits are absolutely superb! I’m not quite sure if this is mainly due to Kim having a really good stylist, but whatever it is, it works, so please don’t stop, Kimmy! Case in point: Kim’s body-con getup at Teyana Taylor’s VII Listening Party which consisted of a creamy white high-waist pencil skirt, a matching tight turtleneck sweater, taupe heels, soft waves and understated makeup. Doesn’t she look just perfect here? The sex appeal of this outfit lies within the curvaceous silhouette while the high-necked top and midi-length skirt bring some much needed elegance and class to Kim’s look. The minute I spotted this gorgeous outfit of Kim, I knew I would have to do a look 4 less of it. Soooo, what do you think? Is my budget-friendly take on Kim’s look on point or not so much?

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?

Whenever I find myself getting bored with fashion (and let’s be honest: after 6 years of fashion blogging this is something that is inevitably going to happen from time to time), I either load up Pinterest or Instagram to combat the fashion blue and where I then spend countless hours browsing one image after another in order to reignite my love for all things fashion and recharge me with new ideas and fresh inspiration. Oh, the pitfalls of social media! To cut a long story short: during my last time hunting on Pinterest for new content ideas, I stumbled upon a pinned image featuring a woman wearing a gorgeous taupe tulle skirt and it was love at first sight. My research regarding obtaining said gorgeous taupe tulle skirt revealed that it was a handmade, long sold-out tulle skirt someone once had listed on Etsy. Yeah, story of my life. So I carried on with my life and had almost forgotten about that tulle skirt already when suddenly, yesterday I happened to browse Chicwish‘s newest arrivals and there it was: a fluffy, taupe tulle skirt looking almost exactly like the one shown in the pin. And it was available! For only $50! Needless to say I just *had* to recreate the whole look in the picture with that gorgeous new tulle skirt I so newly discovered. You like it?
