We haven’t had a sunglass post in a while, so here you go! Have I ever told you that I’m quite fond of cat eyes and tortoise when it comes to sunglasses? So naturally, I’m a little obsessed with these two-tone sunnies by Kate Spade. But since I have already about a gazillion pair of sunglasses at home, there’s absolutely no way I’d spend $170 on yet another pair.

While doing my daily blog research I stumbled upon these lovely cat-eye sunglasses by Fantas Eyes and they instantly reminded me of the Kate Spade pair above. However, these are $22 only and you know what? I think I even like this steal deal more than the real deal. How about you?

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?

What I love about style blogger Rachel from Pink Peonies is that she isn’t afraid of color. And ever since I saw her in these vivid cobalt blue pants I knew I had to recreate her fabulous look on a more accessible budget level. Et voilà! Here’s the result. Do you like it? Is it close enough to Rachel’s outfit?

A few months ago reader Carolyn e-mailed us and asked whether we could find her an alternative for the gorgeous baby pink moto jacket that Blair from Atlantic-Pacific wore in one of her outfit posts in February this year. Of course we took to this quest and were able to find a few suitable pieces, but none that I was perfectly happy with. I e-mailed Carolyn, made my suggestions and checked her request off the list, but this casual-cool pink look of Blair’s has never really gotten out of my mind ever since. Fast forward months later until today when I, while doing my daily research for this blog, happened to stumble upon this beautiful baby pink coat by JOA which instantly reminded me of Blair’s Sister Jane moto jacket. And while it isn’t a perfect match in terms of shape, the baby pink color as well as the material seem to be absolutely spot-on. And since I totally fell in love with this coat, I just had to recreate Blair’s look with our usual budget-friendly take. Hope you like my style blogger look 4 less.
