It’s been a while since we last featured a jewelry piece by Céline on this blog, so here you go: Céline’s knot bracelet which is available in various colors and sizes has made quite the round in the fashion blogosphere lately. The design strongly reminds me of Tiffany’s Love Knot Bangle with the biggest difference being that Céline’s version is left open in the back. I’m not sure what the retail price is for this bracelet, but pre-owned pieces start at approximately $400 which I think is quite the hefty price for a gold-plated brass bangle.

I was never a huge fan of jewelry up until a few years ago because I would always feel bothered and constrained in movement when there were earrings dangling from my ears or bracelets clattering on the table. Ever since becoming a fashion blogger however, I have made my peace with the inconveniences of jewelry and even grew very fond of it. My jewelry collection nowadays is not to be scoffed at, but I’m still missing Tiffany & Co. in my jewelry drawers. This bracelet from Tiffany’s “T”-Collection would be a great starter piece for example because it’s both versatile and modern and can be either worn alone or as part of an arm party. Too bad the price tag of $5.200 is killing all my jewelry dreams though.

Budget Look – Spring, Sporty Florals

by Irina on March 31, 2017

Finally! Spring has officially arrived and I’ve been loving all the sunshine, the blooming flora and the soothing mild temperatures lately! The new season not only lightened up my mood but also my wardrobe; I’m super into pastel colors these days and couldn’t care less for body-con clothes and uncomfortable high heels at the moment. That’s why for this month’s budget look edition, I’ve tried to combine all of my current Spring trend obsessions into one outfit: soft pastel colors, relaxed fits and feminine florals. Let me know if you like my delicate yet sporty Spring look.

Our (now very extensive) Real vs. Steal post on Dior’s highly coveted “Mise En Dior” Tribal Earrings is easily one of our most read and searched for blog posts to date. Dior’s Tribal Earrings became so popular and so widely copied by now that I could probably start a designer dupe blog on Mise En Dior earrings alone. After the initial success of Dior‘s double pearl earring collection, they quickly released new colors, styles and variations based on the classic Mise En Dior earrings. One of them being the “Be Dior”, a beautiful double faux pearl earring with a gold tulip cap in either matte black or white. The minute I saw them, I was in love! But as you might have heard, Dior raised Mise En Dior prices from approx. $300 to whopping $700 after they noticed the huge success of their earrings. And as much as I love Dior, $700 for faux pearls and gold-plated brass? I don’t think so.

Jarin K Double Sided Pearl Lotus Earrings

Update (03/23/2017): Stumbled upon another spot-on Dior earring dupe today! This one is by Jarin K, comes in either black or white and is currently on sale for $140.

Jardin Double Pearl Lotus Earrings

So imagine my delight when I recently discovered these lovely Be Dior dupe earrings by Jardin. I made my order the minute I saw that steeply discounted price: only $14 (down from $69)! I actually even prefer Jardin’s shinier version as I think they look more feminine this way. Too bad I haven’t seen that these were available in both ivory and black prior to making my order, so I only managed to bag the black version, but I want the ivory one so badly as well! First world problems, huh? If you like what you see here, better snap them up quickly, I don’t think MyHabit is having too many of these in stock anymore and Bluefly is selling those for more than double the price.

DIYBeadsBrooch Double Pearl Tulip Earring Set

I also found another Dior look for less option at Etsy. You can get these Be Dior look-alikes in both black and white for $25 combined. And if you prefer other colors, they offer 10 colors and 13 variations (matte or shiny). The matte green ones are my personal fave!
